If you’ve ever heard of a Botox party or have been invited to one, steer clear of these social gatherings as most are being hosted by individuals who are NOT trained or even qualified to perform the procedure.
Botox and similar neuromodulators (Dysport, Xeomin) has been around for decades and is only becoming more and more popular among all individuals. People are not only turning to Botox to give their face a fresh, new look, but it is also being used to treat migraines, excessive sweating and even depression. If you weren’t aware, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Botox a few years ago and since then, many have been undergoing the procedure in order to obtain some sort of relief for the constant pain they experience when they suffer a migraine.
New Yorkers have been using the services of Dr. Leonard Grossman, one of the be plastic surgeons for more than 25 years and it is he who noticed that his patients complained less of the migraines and tension headaches almost immediately after the treatment.
While there are many pros to having Botox performed, it is important that you have it done by a licensed professional who has undergone the specific training needed to perform it right. That cuts out those who are hosting Botox parties. Unfortunately, there are many people hosting these social gatherings, offering both Botox and alcohol, but are doing so illegally. Botox should only be performed in a medical setting, not a person’s home.
We, here at the clinic, have heard and witnessed on too many occasions when 6 out of 12 people who went to someone’s house were infected with the deadly Hepatitis C virus. The person administering “Botox” was a criminal who scammed these people out of money and their health. He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. In another case what looked like a Hyaluronic Acid filler turned out to be a counterfeit product made in China, that resulted in patients needing surgery and left them deformed them for life.
Botox, like any other procedure, carries risks, but you only increase the likelihood of suffering an adverse reaction or a more serious condition when the person who is performing it has just consumed alcohol and doesn’t really know what they are doing.
Don’t let an affordable price tag trick you into getting Botox from an untrained medical professional
Even if you haven’t been tempted to attend a Botox party but are considering getting it done in New York, remember, there are many doctors who are legally permitted to perform Botox but aren’t qualified to do so. If a doctor is offering Botox at an amazing price, this should raise some red flags as you should never be looking to save a few dollars on a procedure that could go terribly wrong and cost you your health or even life.
When considering undergoing a procedure like Botox, you want to be sure the doctor you choose to perform it is patient, caring, and understands the ultimate goal you are trying to reach. Dr. Grossman, who is a New York cosmetic surgeon, truly cares about his patients’ needs and concerns and will help you to understand the entire procedure all the way through to the recovery phase before he performs it. Rather than rush you through your appointments or leave you feeling too intimidated to ask questions, Dr. Grossman provides his patients with a comfortable atmosphere so they can feel at ease when discussing procedures and while having them performed.
Dr. Grossman has developed a proprietary technique where his patients don’t feel any discomfort, have no post-treatment headaches, in fact if they have a headache, it is usually gone during the treatment or within minutes of the completion of the treatment.
Dr Grossman doesn’t just treat foreheads with Botox, he treats all the muscles of the face and neck that express dissatisfaction, disappointment, anger and fear; this in turn by biofeedback, results in patients feeling the sense of wellbeing just 2 weeks after the treatment.
It is no wonder that Dr. Grossman received the VIP status from all the major manufacturers of Botox, Xeomin and Dysport. His high numbers of patients have deserved him huge discounts from the manufacturers and those discounts have been applied to the patients, making their treatments some of the most affordable in the country for Botox and fillers alike.
In today’s day and age, it is hard to find aplastic surgeon in NY who is extremely skilled, considerate and well-priced, which is why you should contact Dr. Grossman at 212-585-2133 or 718-934-5500 if you are thinking about having Botox or fillers.
