Paying Less for Botox May Leave You Frowning

Everyone loves getting a good deal on a quality product. But when it comes to cosmetic treatments, including Botox, Dysport and Jeuveau injections, if the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.

The team at The Aesthetic Wellness Center strongly believes that it is worth it to undergo treatment at a practice you can trust.

Steer Clear of Botox Bargain Deals

The cost of Botox depends on the cost of the product itself and the qualifications of the injector (e.g., their training, skill and experience).

Bargain-basement pricing suggests one or both of the following:

  1. The quality of the product has been compromised – i.e., it is diluted, counterfeit or contaminated.
  2. The person performing treatment has limited credentials and experience.

Either way, you do not want to take a chance. At best, you will not see the wrinkle-reducing results that you expect and have paid for, and your money will go to waste. At worst, you will have put yourself at serious risk of some scary consequences.

Diluting Botox too much may make it spread to other areas of the face, causing you to wind up with a droopy eyelid or eyebrow. Having a counterfeit or contaminated product injected into your face can result in infection, permanent nerve damage or partial paralysis.

Keep in mind that Botox is not like hyaluronic acid fillers which can be dissolved with a simple injection of an enzyme. There is no way to quickly “undo” the effects of bad Botox. You simply have to wait for it to wear off.

Invest in Quality Injectable Care

So before you search for discounts or specials on Botox, remember that any injectable treatment is a medical procedure that requires a qualified provider and a safe product.

Dr. Min S. Ahn and the team at The Aesthetic Wellness Center have received Botox Diamond Level Provider status, indicating they are in the top 2 percent of Botox providers in the country. One such reason for this distinction is the team’s experience with the injectable. Dr. Ahn has performed Botox injections for over 15 years and is regarded as a Botox pioneer. He personally trained Rebecca Hoffey, R.N., B.S.N., C.N.O.R., R.N.F.A., and Rachel McCarthy, R.N., B.S.N., over 10 years ago.
