When pricing out an injectable filler or Botox treatment, consider that the cost of the product is only one component of the total price. You’re also paying for a trained, certified, and experienced professional to properly administer those products to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results safely.
For this reason, bargain-hunting for Botox, fillers, and other cosmetic treatments isn’t recommended. It is unfortunately still common to hear horror stories of untrained, unlicensed providers offering cosmetic services at a steep discount and causing long-lasting damage to patients. This is a key reason why choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon, or a medical spa facility operated by a board-certified plastic surgeon, is one of the most important decisions you can make when shopping for injectables.
A few red flags to look for when choosing a filler or Botox provider include:
- Prices that seem too good to be true.
- Lack of information or before and after pictures on their website or in their office.
- Refusal to show you the product packaging or labeling.
- A dirty, disorganized office or clinic.
It is also worth mentioning that while “Botox parties” have become popular, these events are not a safe way to receive injections unless they are carefully administered in a clinical environment. Botox, fillers, and other professional cosmetic treatments should always be performed in a sterile medical office and by a trained professional.
