Cheap Botox & Fillers? – You get what you pay for……

Cheap botox & fillers…have you been seduced by the thought of having a medical treatment done “on the cheap?”.  Have you actually thought about why it is so cheap?.  Wrinkle treatments are amazing, and can have wondrous results.  However the product used needs to be purchased from a reputable pharmacy with a prescription.  They also need to be administered by a medical professional.  You obviously care about how you look to consider a treatment, why risk possible permanent disfigurement trying to get a “cheap deal”?.

Do Face Creams ever work?…well yes and no

Do you ever think about how much you spend on the latest must-have miracle serum?.  Have you ever questioned its claims to make you look so young you’ll be asked for ID the next time you go to a bar?!.

Do you ever wonder how they work?.  Well let me save you the valuable time and money that you are wasting and say that they don’t, not really.  Now don’t get me wrong there are a lot of good products out there and they do have some benefits.  But let’s be real ladies if those lines are really niggling you.  Why not do something about it with a wrinkle treatment that actually works?.  And before you think “oh I can’t afford that” let me ask you that first question again.  Just how much money do you think you spent on those “miracle serums” over the years?.

If you’ve continued reading I’m guessing you’re intrigued 

Well the fact of the matter is Botox® works.  Do I hear gasps of “Oh I want to age naturally”.  What’s so natural about all those serums we spoke about before?.  And of course that old fear of: “but it’s poison, I’m not putting that in my face”.  Ok so let’s all calm down and talk facts.  

Firstly botox has been around for a very long time (see our blog on the history of Botox® for all the important historical dates and discoveries).  Secondly it was used medically before it was used as a cosmetic treatment .  Thirdly do you really think that so many people all over the world would use it if there was any significant risk?.

The risks of botox and fillers in the wrong hands

So the risks, well the most important point to raise here is that the risk is only there if you are in the wrong hands.  Namely an inexperienced, one day course newbie.   Don’t fancy being a guinea pig do you?.  Or maybe the aesthetic practitioner that offers the deal of the century?.   Well I’m here to tell you, you get what you pay for.  If the “deal” is so attractive that you really want to put your face at risk .  

Some of the possible issues that can arise if injected incorrectly are: weird eyebrow movement, your face dropping on one side, eyes becoming heavy & most seriously blindness.  Not to mention not actually having any botox injected at all, and then wondering why it doesn’t last.  Not such an attractive deal – I did warn you!

So I guess what I’m trying to say is let’s be a bit realistic.   Yes you do need to do your research and spend the amount on your wrinkle treatment that is realistic to what you are asking for.  For example if you have lips that are incredibly thin, no one and I mean no one is going to give you a full voluptuous pout for 1 tube of filler, no matter what they say!  

Buyer beware

You can buy some very dubious fillers on the internet and I really dread to think what is in them.  But this is the filler that is being used for those cheap deals, it doesn’t last.  You will then end up having treatment done again and again.  In the long term causing more trauma to the area, risk of infection and possible lumps appearing and unfortunately it will actually cost you more in the long run.  

The real deal that you will get is when you find a fantastic and reputable facial aesthetic practitioner.  The knowledge that you are in safe hands and your interests and safety are the most important thing.  Now is that worth spending that extra £20 on?.   I’ll leave you with that thought and if you would like to know more about any Botox® in Poole or Botox in Bournemouth by a very experienced and highly qualified aesthetic practitioner, check out our facial aesthetics website, and why not have a look at our Botox® prices while you’re there too!  Austin Brewer offers free consultations 7 days a week including evenings.  Call him directly on 07823 883888
