What Makes a Great Injector
1. An understanding of facial anatomy and the ability to assess facial aging
2. Recognition of what areas can, and cannot, be safely and effectively treated to reverse the signs of aging.
3. Understanding the differences between injectable agents, their pros and cons, and how to deal with complications should they arise.
4. How to best utilize a patient's resources/finances to maximize results
5. Have a long-term plan for each patient
6. Have the experience and skill to achieve the desired goal using the selected agent
These are not qualities exclusive to physicians. However, they do require extensive training - not a weekend course! - under the tutelage of someone very experienced and very skilled. Remember, you won't know what you're missing out on unless you do see someone with experience, artistry and skill.
Does your nurse have all of these qualifications?

Injections and experience
Injections are really dependent on the skill of the person and the level of training. I always advise someone to consult a board certified physician with years of experience with facial injections for the best cosmetic results.
