So we all read articles and see things on TV about botched procedure in surgery and the cosmetic world. In fact we are fascinated by other peoples mistakes that we created a reality show based solely on it. In the area I deal with, which is all non-invasive injectables I have seen my far share of “botched” jobs. I hate to say it but dermatologist rank the highest for the botched jobs I have had to correct. Are they great at other things…sure, so lets let them practice what they are great at and keep them away from the face. In the time I have been doing injections, I have seen everyone getting in on the game of fillers and botox. In Scottsdale there is such a high demand to look and feel great, so everyone is trying to get in on the game.
What you need to know is that if you can easily get in for a “same day appointment” they are most likely not who you should go to for advanced procedures. I am typically booked out 2 weeks for fillers and all advanced injections, unless I get a last minute cancellation. Remember that your face is hard to hide, and you get what you pay for. I find it difficult to treat people who hop from one Groupon to the next, because I can never get an accurate sense of what injections have been done. Establish yourself with someone you trust so that you can make changes to your treatment to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can easily be dissolved. Radiesse can also be dissolved. Botox…sorry, but it will have to wear off in 3-4 months.
