Botox: Don’t Fall for Pretty Pictures and Cheap Prices

Published on January 27, 2016

Botox administration is an art as much as it is a science!

Botox has a long and well-established safety history. It remains one of the most widely studied and researched medical aesthetic products on the market. The safety and versatility of Botox is one of its biggest appeals.

In this article from the New York Post, one person thought she would get a deal by buying a Groupon for Botox injections.

I was too embarrassed to say, ‘I got some cheap Botox!’ So I ended up making up a story about how I bumped my head,” says Alexandra. “I took a picture and sent it to [the spa], and they were like, ‘It happens. Not our problem.’

Dr. Sami is one of a handful of premier Oculoplastic Surgeons in Houston, Texas; and as such, has perfected the art of Botox injections. The right amount of Botox administered at the right places softens facial lines and wrinkles and makes you appear more rested and refreshed.

Not too long ago, here in Houston, Maria Lorena Teran and her daughters were arrested for illegally administering Botox for a second time!

Many people out there are looking to make a quick buck, whether they be shady car salesmen or untrained and unlicensed persons offering cheap Botox injections. Don’t fall victim to predators!

The long and well-established reputation of the safety of Botox is dependant on a number of factors, not the least of which is the credentials of the person administering the drug. In order to be safe, it needs to be done by a highly trained, super-specialist, like Dr. Mirwat Sami of Houston Oculofacial Plastic Surgery, with an extensive knowledge of facial muscle anatomy.
