You may have noticed that more and more non-surgical medical procedures are being promoted by websites such as Groupon and Living Social.
It is important that the public be aware that procedures such as Botox and Filler injections, laser treatments while non-surgical are still medical procedures.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has suggested the following questions be asked before purchasing any such coupons:
. Is the med-spa located within a physician’s office?
. What are the credentials of the physician supervising your treatment?
. Who is performing the procedure?
. How effective are facial injectables and what is the right product for me?
. Is the product FDA approved for this use?
. Have all your questions been answered and are you fully aware of the risk and benefits of the procedure?
. What to expect from the procedure?
. Am I taking the procedure seriously?
. Am I basing my decision on the best treatment option and not on the price?
. What if I’m not happy with the results?
. Have you been told who holds financial responsibility for any revisions or if complications arise?
