Should I visit a doctor for Restylane injectable treatments in New York City?
If you visit Zuckerman Plastic Surgery for your injectable treatment, you can be certain that Dr. Zuckerman will recommend and perform the best treatment option for you in a safe and comfortable manner. In general, the use of injectable fillers has become so widespread that unfortunately not only may your injector not be a board-certified physician, if you undergo injections in a non-medical setting, an injector may have little formal medical training. Dr. Zuckerman recommends you visit a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist for these injections (if you aren’t able to visit Zuckerman Plastic Surgery!). In New York City, there many options for injectables treatments, and many medical offices also offer injections by a registered nurse or physician’s assistant (PA), often at a lower price. These injectors are required to be overseen by a physician, so if you are considering these practitioners due to price, Dr. Zuckerman recommends that you confirm with the office ahead of time that there is a physician on the premises and inquire to what degree the physician oversees the injector’s activities.
