Nowadays it seems like you can get Botox just about anywhere – at a qualified Orlando plastic surgery office, a dermatology office, at your chiropractor or pediatrician, a day spa or even at the mall.  Sometimes the allure of a low price will entice patients to have the treatment on the spot at a non-qualified practitioner’s office.  As in most cases, price should not be the only determination of who does your Botox treatment, nor should it be an impulse purchase. When the price of Botox seems too good to be true, you should ask where the provider is purchasing the Botox.  If it is from a source other than Allergan, the manufacturer, you should be suspicious about where it came from, how old it is and if it is indeed the true product.  Allergan provides Botox® Cosmetic which is the FDA-approved formulation.  Botox® Cosmetic comes in a concentrated form and must be reconstituted before administered.  The provider controls how many units of Botox are in the syringe you are receiving, so you need to trust that you are getting what you pay for.  If the Botox solution is too weak, you will not get a good, long-lasting result.  You might also be paying for more than you are getting. Freshness also counts when it comes to Botox and if the product is not purchased from Allergan or has been sitting for awhile, you do not know where it has been and how long it has been around. Finally, not all practitioners are equal when it comes to Botox treatments.  Many providers who administer Botox have had minimal training and in some cases have very little knowledge of how the muscles of the face work and where Botox should be injected to achieve the best results.  Also, can these practitioners treat potential complications from their injections? At the office of Orlando board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott A. Greenberg, you can be assured that you are receiving the freshest Botox in the correct strength.  Dr. Greenberg has been administering Botox for 15 years and he does all treatments himself after a thorough consultation to determine the best treatment for you.  You can rest assured that your treatment will be tailored to your needs and concerns by a professional with years of experience and knowledge.  Isn’t your face worth it?
