Who Should be Your Injector? A Nurse or a Doctor?September 30, 2022
Injectable cosmetic treatments are trendy in the United States for good reason: versatile, efficacious, and safe, these non-surgical treatments can address many concerns to produce a more youthful and appealing appearance without incisions, sutures, or a lengthy recovery period.
At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, injectable treatments we offer include:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX is used to soften fine lines and deep wrinkles, including crow’s feet and frown lines, in addition to decreasing a bulky jawline, smoothing pebbly chin, and removing neck bands
- Dermal Fillers. Fillers add volume, addressing hollowness at the cheeks, deep nasolabial and marionette lines, and at the chin, along with deep wrinkles and skin laxity throughout the face. Some fillers can also be used for safe and long-lasting lip augmentation
These same services are available at various med spas and salons throughout Texas, where they may be performed by a registered nurse or physician’s assistant. At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, they are performed by Dr. Swapna Gopathi, a board-certified anti-aging and cosmetic physician.
Why Choose a Doctor for Injections?
Nurses and physician assistants serve essential functions and have undergone training to work alongside physicians to deal with various medical issues. However, even the most highly trained RN or PA will not have anywhere near the level of education and amount of training required to become a doctor.
Choosing a doctor who is board certified in cosmetic and anti-aging procedures means selecting someone explicitly trained in aesthetic improvements. It also places you in the hands of someone who knows how to reduce the risk of complications and quickly address them should they arise. Dr. Gopathi’s eye for natural results helps her patients become more confident while still looking like themselves.
Attentive, careful, and precise, Dr. Gopathi is exceptionally skillful at facial profile optimization with injectables and other non-surgical treatments. Fully committed to patient safety and satisfaction, she is here to listen to your concerns, assess your problem areas, and provide the exact treatments needed to produce your desired results.
