Is the doctor trying to get me to pay more with this advice???

At a recent consultation re forehead wrinkles the surgeon told me that he did not recommend injecting the forehead only. Instead he suggested injecting in the middle of my brow and forehead as this gave more control. He said with forehead only the botox would defuse and I might end up with wonky eyebrows. Is what he suggests a real risk or and I being swindled into having 2 areas done and therefore paying double??

This is why I don’t like the "area" method of billing for Botox.  You don’t really know, do you?  If the Botox is billed by volume (we do it this way) or units (many offices), then you know how much you get and you can adjust it up or down with your doctor after trying difference approaches if you want.   It’s more controlled and you can decide based on the overall effect.   Honestly, it tough to know based on what is above.    Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
