Why discount Botox is a bad idea

Why discount Botox is a bad idea

 

We all love deals, value for money and the sense that we are getting bang for our buck. Search for that supermarket deal, the clothes sale but please don’t search for deals on Botulinum Neurotoxin Type A. Botox is a toxin, a drug designed to block neurotransmission signals, discount and cheap are two words that should never be seen in the same sentence as this. At Visage Clinic we adhere to the highest codes of best practice and protocol in relation to product, staff, training and insurance and our price reflects this. If a botox treatment sounds too cheap, then ask yourself why? Quality product, strict dosage protocol, expertly trained Aesthetic Doctors and gold standard insurance cover. We don’t do cheap botox. If it’s too cheap, ask yourself the question why? Don’t take the risk with Half price and discount Botox. Quality product,treatments & results do not come cheap.


Want to know a secret about Botox?

Not many people know that Botox is produced by the manufacturer in the form of a powder. The clear liquid that you see in the syringe is formed by adding bacteriostatic normal saline. At Visage Clinic we follow manufacturers dosaging , this ensures safety, results and a lasting product. This is not the case for every provider. From a financial point of view the mark up on Botox is relatively low after you factor in insurance and costings. So then , how can someone offer such cheap botox I hear you ask? Simple, cheap service,cheap product and cheap results. In short botox can be diluted, you can make a little botox go a long way. Again, if it is too cheap, you need to start asking yourself why?


Do you really want discount Botox and a discount service?

At Visage Clinic we do not offer corrective treatments, because these treatments are temporary we advise patients to return once they have passed the three month mark since their last treatment. However, we have seen many patients in the last quarter of the year that underwent “discount botox” treatments . Regret and dissatisfaction are the two words that come to mind with these patients. “Botox not taking affect” , “didn’t work” , didn’t last” and “uneven appearance” are just some of the comments that we hear , but the single biggest comment is “I should have known, because it was cheap”. As promotors of standardized care in aesthetic medicine we feel a little dismayed when we hear such stories. There is of course a commercial aspect to aesthetic medicine, however there is also a duty of care and a responsibility to patients. 


Quality botox

Can Botox deals ruin your face?

In short ,yes. Cheap treatments mean cheap products, cheap service and cheap insurance ( if any) . Shocking as this may sound, but people are often unaware of such things. Botox is not just Botox and insurance is not just insurance. Botulinum Neurotoxin Type A by Allergan is the gold standard in Botox and  Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurers are the gold standard body for cosmetic insurance .At Visage Clinic we tick all these boxes and for this reason cannot offer the cheap and discounted treatments. Remember, you pay for what you get. It is you face and it’s the only one you have. If it is too cheap, then ask yourself the question why?


What should I really know about my Botox Treatment?

Go to a reputable clinic, do your homework and read reviews. If a lot of people are saying the same thing and are happy then it is a good indication that quality treatments and follow up are provided. Ensure your Doctor is registered ,fully trained and insured. Ensure the Botox product is approved for FDA and European Medicine use. Cheap Botox often means cheap service, poor follow up and poor results. Discount botox often means discounts have been taken in other places, the dose, the insurance policy, the provider. Cheap is a word that should never apply to anything you are planning to inject into your face. Thinking of changing provider or thinking of getting Botox for the first time?
