Watered down Botox?

Dr. Irwin,I live in Florida and have known MD's that have had fines due to watering down Botox. How can I make sure I get the pure medication?

It’s a crazy world out there, isn’t it?  Why someone (and a doctor??) would do this, is beyond me since the results won’t be as good .  It’s like "shooting yourself in the foot."   But the bottom line is that you can’t be sure.  If the result aren’t lasting as long as you think they should, have a respectful discussion with your doctor first.  Then, if you’re still not confident, consider switching doctors to see if the results are different.  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?!
