How To Talk To Your Clients About Botox


You’ve received Botox training and earned your certification, and now you’re ready to offer Botox to your clients. Great! But first things first: You need to understand how to properly and successfully talk to clients about this cosmetic injectable. Although it’s the #1 nonsurgical cosmetic service in the nation, clients need to be aware–not scared–of what their expectations should be.

Weaken. Poison. Toxin. Paralysis. These are words you don’t want to bring up in front of your Botox client. They present a sense of discomfort and unease. As an FDA approved treatment that has been on the market for more than a decade, Botox is a highly safe treatment. You want to make sure you convey that to your client.

So how should you talk to your client about Botox? If you keep these keywords in mind, it will help keep your clients at ease.

This helps alleviate client concerns about Botox. It is a purified protein that temporarily restricts muscle movement in targeted areas of the face, giving clients an overall youthful appearance.

Everyone has heard plastic surgery horror stories, and with Botox nobody wants to look like they’ve had work done. Botox cosmetic is designed to reveal smooth and natural results. It’s why many people use it as a “lunchtime” treatment–there is no downtime and the aftermath leaves clients looking rejuvenated.

An estimated 10% of American adults have a fear of needles, so you don’t want to add any distress to your client. Although Botox is an injection, the needle is very small. Minimal discomfort may be experienced, but the overall treatment is not excruciatingly painful. Don’t lead them to believe that.

At the same time, medical professions should be prepared to openly discuss the minimal side effects and risks of Botox with their clients. You should know how to properly answer any of your clients concerns about this service. However, you can always reference that Botox and dermal fillers are some of the safest noninvasive cosmetic treatments on the market.
