Dr. Garo Kassabian is happy to announce that he is now a member of the NewBeauty Magazine ExpertInjector™ program.
When faced with the decision of choosing an injector for cosmetic treatments such as hyaluronic acid fillers or botulinum toxins, many consumers are motivated by factors such as peer influence or even the price of treatment. As consumer advocates, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and NewBeauty magazine emphasize choosing an injector based on their credentials. That’s why NewBeauty created the ExpertInjector™ program. Sadly, of the more than 1.2 million physicians legally allowed to perform cosmetic injectable treatments in the United States, less than 7 percent of them meet the qualifications to be an ExpertInjector™. Physicians with the ExpertInjector™ designation are board-certified plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, dermatologists and oculoplastic surgeons who have demonstrated extreme due diligence regarding patient safety, reliable results and consumer education.
ExpertInjectors™ do not possess abilities beyond other qualified aesthetic providers. They have, however, received appropriate training in their approved core residency (plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery or dermatology), and through additional post-graduate medical education—making them well-qualified to perform injectables that require a keen understanding of underlying anatomy and possible problems.
“The Aesthetic Society is proud to endorse this program, particularly with the disturbing trend of “back room Botox” and other injectable procedures being performed by individuals with no medical training at all,” said Jeffrey Kenkel, MD, president of ASAPS. “The ExpertInjector™ program raises the bar for patient safety.”
