Botox Savings in San Jose

Ask if your provider offers loyalty points for cosmetic treatments. These vary from provider to provider - most have a expiration,others are restrictive in terms of specifying what services can be obtained as a reward for your patronage, and then there is a also a big difference in rewards as a fraction of your spending with the provider. We have seen as low as 2% to as high as 10% in San Jose area.  A sampling of few reward programs is given below as an example.

4. Shop around for Genuine Botox Provider

In general the price of Botox is higher if provided in a doctor's office rather than in a mall. Furthermore, in office setting you may want to find out if the doctor is administering Botox or is it a nurse or a physician assistant. In any case you should check if the office is listed here.

Quality and Safety of Procedure, Comfort and Cost are the factors you should consider in selecting your Botox Provider.

Cheap is not always good:

1. Botox Imported from Overseas (or even fake?)
 Ensure that your Botox Provider - even better - if the Physcian Director is listed as Botox Provider is listed here.
 Some medical spas and physicians get approached by overseas pharmacies offering cheap Botox.
 Several practices in San Francisco Bay Area including Fremont, Santa Cruz and San Jose were "caught" recently.
 Read about San Jose Mercury News Article described below. We believe this is tip of the iceberg. 

FDA warns doctors of counterfeit Botox. A few Bay Area also doctors named in FDA listSan Jose Mercury News Article Here. (12/24/2012)
Look Great ! Avoid Fake ! Ensure you are getting genuine Botox, by:
1.  Checking if your Doctor is listed here
2.  Get Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Points - which are only available for Genuine US Botox.

We noticed that the price of one of the Physician's named in the list above jumped from $8/unit to $11/unit overnight. That is basically the difference between the cost of imported Botox and genuine made in USA product.  In another case, a practice closed down overnight - but the practitioner continued the practice under different name in the same town. One way to ensure that your Botox provider is providing you genuine Botox is to check the website of Botox Manufacturer (Allergan) in USA.

2. Daily Deals 

Daily deals are tricky. Again - it is possible to get lower cost in Daily Deals.  It usually means the practitioner is not busy enough or is trying to get their name out there. It may be worthwhile to look up reviews and find out how long they have been practicing. You may look at previous daily deals on the internet and check reviews after a couple of months of the deal and draw the conclusion yourself in this regard.

In our opinion, in many cases consumers have got disappointed.
