Why Bargain Botox & Facial Fillers are Dangerous
Nearly everyone is shopping for a bargain. Clipping coupons, daily deals, and of course, Groupon discounts are all very popular ways to save money. But when it comes to a medical procedure like Botox, it’s never the best idea to “go cheap”.
Botox & Facial Fillers: You Get What You Pay For
The phrase, “too good to be true,” is a worthy warning when discount shopping for Botox or facial fillers. While shopping by price may be a good idea for some purchases, Botox, facial fillers and laser treatments are real medical procedures you should not take chance on.
The necessary skill offered by a trained Botox medical professionals should not be overlooked for what is actually more than just “simple beauty treatment.” It can be misleading to see a Groupon for quick cosmetic procedures and lump Botox and facial fillers into the mix.
Botox and Facial Fillers Are Medical Procedures
To begin with Botox and facial filler injectors must have a medical background for safety, to ensure proper procedure and emergency protocol. When it comes to your face, playing the discount game may not be worth it in the end. Additionally, they need to be highly trained and experienced in regard to what and how much is injected – and where it is injected!
By their very nature Botox injections, and facial fillers are medical treatments which should be performed by a trained, experienced doctor or nurse, like those in ourTroy, MI Medical Spa. All medical procedures come with some risk and therefore, should always be administered by an accredited professional in a qualified, equipped medical facility to ensure proper sanitation and hygiene, correct Botox and filler storage protocol and FDA approved usage.
Botox Complications When Injected Improperly
When Botox is administered by a skilled, trained professional, the risks and short-term side effects are very rare. However, if Botox is improperly injected, it can cause a series of minor to major complications.
Improperly injected Botox from a “cut rate” provider such as a salon or mall location can lead to lumps, bumps, infections, inability to swallow, drooping eyes and even blocked blood vessels!
It is crucial that Botox and facial fillers be administered in a licensed medical provider., and by law, it must prescribed by a doctor and administered by a skilled medical professional. However, technical skill is not the only concern when selecting your Botox professional. Beyond the practitioner’s qualifications and technical skill level is their experience and artistic technique with injectables. Get familiar with their background and previous experiences as a Botox injector. Make sure you like the style and results this professional can deliver.
Beware of the Too-Quick Consultation
Yes, Botox is a quick procedure that shouldn’t disrupt your day. However, be cautious of the quick in-and-out, five minute consultation. It is a very important part of the procedure to do a proper consultation with each client. In our Troy, MI area Med Spa, we offer a lengthy, personalized consultation where the doctor or nurse injector can inform each patient about procedure options, assess the individual’s individual needs and devise a customized Botox injection plan that is best for them.
A proper Botox or Facial Filler initial consultation should take at least approximately 20 minutes. If the consultation seems rushed, you should keep shopping for a thorough, quality medical professional like the doctors and nurses at our Troy, Mi area Med Spa.
