I was at the spa today and my hair stylist informed me that they had begun to give Botox injections there. I was always under the impression that someone licensed or in the medical field was required to give an injection. Is getting a Botox injection from a salon just as safe as getting one from a physician?

Every state has different laws and regulations about who can perform medical procedures such as Botox injections and lasers. I would think it would be wise to do some research before getting yourself injected by anyone. Ask questions such as are you licensed? (By whom?) How many do you do in a day or week? Where did you get your training? Do you have the ability to treat emergencies? Experience matters Ask questions and only have injections once you are satisfied with the answers. It is still a medical procedure.
