Finding cheap Botox deals can seem like a great way to save money while getting rid of wrinkles.

However, the old adage “you get what you pay for” is more true than even when talking about injectables. While it’s tempting to save some bucks, it can be dangerous. Some injectors may offer unbelievably low prices, but you run the risk of getting low-quality injectables or being treated by someone inexperienced. It’s cool to find discounts from reputable providers, but when it seems too good to be true, it’s better to think twice. The last thing we want to see are patients going to sub-par providers, only to have health problems and severe side effects while risking their lives. Read on to learn why cheap deals on wrinkle treatments are a terrible idea.

What are the Risks of Getting Cheap Botox Deals?

When opting for low-cost Botox deals, individuals expose themselves to various risks that can significantly impact their health and appearance. One of the primary dangers is the injection of counterfeit or diluted products.

Providers offering cheap Botox deals may cut corners by using non-FDA approved or diluted substances, compromising the effectiveness and safety of the treatment.

Additionally, possible side effects and complications, such as allergic reactions, skin irritation, and improper administration, can arise from discounted Botox treatments, posing a threat to the individual’s well-being. Moreover, the long-term health risks associated with substandard Botox injections cannot be overlooked. These risks may include adverse effects on the skin, facial muscles, and overall health, leading to costly corrective measures in the future.

While it’s true that every cosmetic procedure or treatment carries some risks and wrinkle relaxers and fillers usually carry less risk than a plastic surgery procedure, buyers must still beware when it comes to choosing discount treatments.

An expert injector has many years of experience, special training, and a long line of happy clients to validate their professional status. With cheap deals, you’re going to a random person without fully knowing whether or not they can provide safe treatments or good results.

Safety should be the first priority; how much you spend and how you look should come second. With an inexperienced provider, the following serious side effects and complications can occur:

  • Sub-quality or expired products
  • Uneven/asymmetrical results
  • Over-injected (frozen) look
  • Treatment injected into a blood vessel
  • Damage to facial nerves
  • Higher risk of infection
  • Breathing issues or difficulty swallowing
  • Treatment placed outside the muscle
  • Botulinum toxin flowing through the blood stream

What Kinds of Providers Are Offering Wrinkle Injections

Dentists, OB/GYNs, eye doctors, and other medical professionals are now allowed to offer injectable wrinkle treatments to their patients. Only those who go through special training are legally allowed to offer injectable services.

However, just because some training has been undertaken doesn’t mean that the provider is fully knowledgeable about the anatomy of the facial structures including blood vessels, nerves, and muscle locations.

Further, these providers often time have not spent years honing and perfecting their techniques before they begin “practicing” on patients. This can mean lots of botched jobs, injections in the wrong places, and poor artistry.

What Should You Consider Before Purchasing Botox from Groupon or Discount Deals?

Before availing Botox deals from platforms like Groupon or other discount offers, several crucial factors need consideration. Firstly, the quality of the Botox treatment should not be compromised solely for a discounted price. High-quality Botox procedures ensure safety and desirable results, making it essential to prioritize quality over cost.

Moreover, the potential risks of getting injectables at a non-certified spa should be acknowledged. Discounted deals may lead individuals to unreliable and non-credentialed providers, posing significant risks to their well-being and appearance.

A possible side effect to be aware of is eyelid droop, which can occur as a result of improperly administered Botox. This condition can impact one’s facial symmetry and requires corrective measures, further highlighting the importance of choosing qualified and reputable providers.
