The Internet Gives Botox A Bad Rep

29 May

I have heard some interesting things from patients over the years about Botox and Fillers and information they gathered from the internet or from friends who have read stories online. The internet is a wonderfully useful place of information… So long as you are reading it on a reputable site (.org) or from a reputable person (for example, I am an expert in Botox and Fillers, please refer to my credentials page!).

When looking at internet sites, you need to take into account the validity and reliability of the information that is being given to you.

Yes, Wikipedia is great… But it is not a reliable source of information. (Although I still use it!).

Consider who is giving you the information when it comes to product safety. When looking at prices it should be unit based. Like when you go into CVS and you compare how much shampoo is by the unit cost because the bottle size is different. Fillers are charged in number of syringes.

Use your judgement, and remember you can’t believe everything you read! If you have a question, ask someone with expertise in the area. If you aren’t sure their answer is true, or you want a second opinion, get one! But please take the stories you read online with a grain of salt.
