Want Botox? Don't Scrimp on the Doctor!

Want Botox? Don't Scrimp on the Doctor!


Times are tough, and you've been busy. So it's tempting to put off those annual mole checks (which are as important as getting your gyno exam, by the way) or go for budget Botox at the mall's medispa. But before you bargain shop for your beauty health, here's why you should always pick a board-certified doctor.

Remember those grueling "board" exams that your doctor friends worry so much about passing? Well, it turns out you can still practice even if you don't pass these tests. But do you really want to go to a doctor that didn't pass?

That's like having a lawyer who failed the Bar or a chauffeur without a license. Sure, you may get from Point A to Point B, but is it worth the risk?

Just something to think about the next time you see a "Cheap Botox!" ad in your local paper. Some things are really too good to be true.

Where to Find the Right Beauty Doc

For board-certified dermatologists, visit the American Academy of Dermatology.

For board-certified plastic surgeons, visit the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
