A Dallas Morning News article warns consumers about the potential downside of using an online coupon to purchase Botox.
Beverly Hills, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/22/2013 -- According to a February 26, 2013 Dallas Morning News article (Go to: goo.gl/g66Nw), it’s becoming more common for med spas and medical practices to offer daily deal coupons for Botox. While this may be seen as a boon to cost conscious consumers, the report warns consumers to be careful about using these coupons. Consumers should be concerned about their health first and the deal second.
“I agree with the report,” says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “Consumers should thoroughly investigate any clinic or physician before agreeing to receive Botox, dermal fillers, or any aesthetic medical treatment. The savings are insignificant if your health is at risk; even more so if the treatment won’t be performed by a physician.”
It is vital for consumers to know that Botox is a prescription drug that should be injected by a trained medical professional in a proper medical facility. Some consumers tend to believe that Botox injections are as simple and safe as a facial when this is far from the case. Even physicians need to be trained to properly and safely inject Botox. And Botox, like any other drug, has potential side effects that patients should be aware of prior to receiving treatment.
It is suggested that consumers interested in Botox injections ask their family and friends for a referral. Allergan, Inc., the manufacturer of Botox and Juvéderm, has a feature on its website to help consumers locate a physician in their area that offers Botox. With the recent revelation by the Food and Drug Administration that more than 300 U.S. medical practices were instructed to stop buying unapproved Botox from Canadian pharmacies, it’s helpful to have a list of physicians that have bought genuine Botox.
“There are Botox injectors out there that may be unscrupulous and even unlicensed,” concludes Dr. Ourian. “It’s incumbent on each consumer to do their due diligence and protect themselves. Your health is more valuable than a coupon.”
