The injection of Botulinum Toxin is one of the simplest procedures in all of medicine, but because it is Botulinum Toxin, people require assurance that the people holding the syringe know what they are doing. This is the reason training centres like us exist. There are still controversies, however, regarding the question of who should and should not have the authority to administer Botulinum Toxin.
Is Training Enough?
There are two schools of thought when the qualification of who can inject patients with Botulinum Toxin comes into the question. The first is that anyone who has gone through the proper training and earned some kind of proof of their competence can and should apply what they have learned.
The rationale for this argument is that every other profession demands the exact same thing. If a doctor or a lawyer completes all their requirements to practice their craft, why should aestheticians do more than what is needed to prove their competence?
The other side of the argument contends that training is not enough, and patients should look at the personal history of the person doing the procedure. This stand comes from the fear that just anyone with basic knowledge of how Botulinum Toxin works can inject people with it. In fact, there have been several news items in the past few years highlighting those fears.
We believe our training services and workshops are enough to qualify anyone to become competent in the application of Botulinum Toxin. But we also agree that the character of the one in charge of the procedure should be something patients consider when choosing whom they want holding the syringe. These arguments are two sides of the same coin, and most patients make the mistake of thinking that they are mutually exclusive.
Our workshops are enough to satisfy the technical aspect of the procedure, as it stretches the most important topics of Botulinum Toxin application over several dates.
