Why Choose Dr. Adam C. Augenstein for BOTOX Treatments?
Surgical Experience Complements This Non-Surgical Treatment
By sheer number of global applications each year, the most commonly chosen cosmetic treatment in the world is BOTOX Cosmetic. Dual board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Augenstein has seen this injectable grow in popularity since it was first introduced in 2002, with millions of people annually choosing it to temporarily smooth out forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. The product is FDA approved, can be administered in very little time, and requires no down time after a session.
The injectable’s many convenient benefits, however, may lead some patients to think of it as easy to administer. While everyone from salon employees to dentists around the country have hopped onto the BOTOX bandwagon, not all injectors are on the same level. Different states have different regulations on who is allowed to offer the injections, but no matter where they seek their cosmetic solution, patients truly benefit from choosing an injector who has a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the face, both cosmetically and medically. A medical professional devoted to aesthetics will understand how each area where BOTOX can be injected interacts with other elements of the face, which other treatments may best complement the results, and how to best maximize patient health and safety.
The Underlying Benefit
Dr. Adam Augenstein specifically studied BOTOX out of a desire and commitment to meet his patients’ needs, both surgical and nonsurgical. His extensive background in aesthetic plastic and reconstructive surgery gives him particular insight into a variety of strategies for guiding patients toward their cosmetic goals. Beyond his education, which centered on both plastic and reconstructive surgery and head and neck surgery through dual residencies at the University of Louisville, Dr. Augenstein is also double board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
His intense focus on the head and neck allows him to approach his patients from a range of perspectives, including the skin, the muscles, and the underlying bone structure. Each plays a crucial role in facial aesthetics, so a knowledge of their individual characteristics, as well as their interplay, gives him an advantage in placing injections and creating a treatment plan that will deliver rejuvenating results for patients not just now, but into the future.
The Actual Product
BOTOX is not the only injectable that makes use of botulinum toxin, but it is unique in terms of the research and numerous studies and trials that went into its development. It is not interchangeable with other injectables, so patients who come to Dr. Augenstein for BOTOX Cosmetic should know that they are getting BOTOX Cosmetic—not just something like it.
Manufacturer Allergan makes resources available to ensure injectors can remain as up to date as possible on the latest techniques and advances in application.
