Health and Wellness Wednesday: Bargain Cosmetic Treatments

Given our current “recessionista beauty” purchasing habits, it is imperative to be mindful of what we are putting in/on our faces and not solely focus on the “bargain.”  We can’t take chances when our face is on the line, after all the consequences may be irreparable. 
 “I have seen many new patients that are coming to me after receiving botched” treatments,” says Dr. Mark Nestor.  “I can’t stress enough the importance of seeing a specialist (dermatologist, plastic surgeon, oculoplastics and facial plastic surgeons) – you don’t want to take any chances when your health and appearance is at stake.”
According to The American Society of Dermatologic Surgery and The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, looking for a bargain on cosmetic procedures will unfortunately lead to an increase in horror stories about ‘discount injectables’ bought offshore and cosmetic medicine and cosmetic surgical procedures performed by untrained or poorly trained practitioners.”
You can now be econ-savvy and still look and feel your best by choosing cosmetic treatments that offer more “bang for your buck.”  Do your homework and choose treatments with longer-lasting results and lower long-term maintenance costs.  Weigh your options and opt for what will look good now … next month … and maybe even next year! 

For instance, recent clinical data demonstrates that the results of Restylane can last up to 18 months in 95 percent or more of patients with just one repeat injection. This means fewer injections and less dollars spent to look vibrant, fresh and youthful for more than a year! 

Remember, caveat emptor -- buyer beware!

The saying rings trues that you get what you pay for. It's sad that people would do this to their body. If you are going to alter your body like that, be sure you aren't going to a "discount doctor."
