If you subscribe to any daily deal sites then you know you can find deep discounts on everything from restaurants to classes, vacations, and products. You may have even seen deals on professional services such as teeth whitening, laser hair removal, and even BOTOX® injections.

These deals might seem like a great idea for your first BOTOX experience: they are discounted, convenient, and you can see if you like the experience before you spend money on treatment at regular price.

In reality, however, there are several ways in which such a treatment could go awry. Let’s take a look at some of the pitfalls of choosing wrinkle treatments on impulse or with the sole intention of saving money.

A Quick BuckSome states allow physicians in any specialty to administer Botox injections.

Some states allow physicians in any specialty (or staff under the supervision of a physician) to administer BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.

Dentists, gynecologists, and doctors from other specialties often use BOTOX injections as a way to make a quick buck. In order to perform the treatment, they must undergo specific training, but the training process itself is not extensive.

Therefore, many of these doctors have very little actual experience in performing the treatment.

Consequences of a Provider’s Inexperience

You may think that BOTOX is a foolproof way to treat wrinkles, but in the wrong hands, you could easily experience temporary or permanent complications, such as a droopy eyelid or paralysis of other areas of the face. Technique is extremely important, so it’s vital to check your provider’s credentials before allowing that needle to pierce your skin!

Impulse Purchases

When a dentist or daily deals site suggests BOTOX® Cosmetic at an unbeatable price, it can be hard to say no in the moment. But pressuring yourself into trying a normally expensive treatment you haven’t researched could be a huge mistake.

It’s far better to take your time and research the positive results, side effects, and a provider that makes you feel comfortable. If you have to pay more than that “great deal” you found online, there’s probably a good reason it costs more.
