17 Feb Treatment Discount Deals – Are they a good or a bad idea?
We all want to look and feel our best and sometimes we feel that we may need a helping hand along the way from technology and aesthetic beauty treatments to help us achieve our beauty goals.
Quality treatments however, don’t come cheap.
With so many discount websites online offering huge savings on specialist beauty treatments, it can understandably, be very tempting!
You read the description under the discounted offer and compare it to the description on a reputable clinics website and you see that they appear to be offering the same thing but at a much better price but is that really the case?
The truth is, you always pay for what you get.
If you want quality, you can guarantee that there will be a higher cost involved to achieve the high standard that you will expect.
Although there are a lot of shiny new discounted offers floating around the internet to try and suck you in, in many cases, it has turned out to be a really bad decision!
Well for one, the specialist machinery that is needed for treatments is wildly expensive to the doctor and they can’t just purchase a ‘one model fits all’ deal on machinery.
Different machines with different parts do different things and are for different skin types!
It doesn’t work out to offer hugely discounted treatments when the cost of the tools are that expensive. Doctors just wouldn’t break even…
Another reason why those discount deals you may have been considering are very likely to be a bad decision, is because a small vial of Botox, for example, costs hundreds. Just for one tiny little vial.
If you are being offered a large discount on a Botox treatment, then it is a red flag.
It is very likely that the Botox in question is being diluted, the correct amount is not being used in an attempt to save as much product as possible or it could even be a case of a counterfeit Botox impersonator being used instead!
Realistically, this would be the only way the practitioner could possibly make a profit by largely discounting a Botox treatment.
This could be dangerous to the patient because:
1. There is no real guarantee of what the substance they are using actually is
2. If Botox is watered down, it can travel to other places of the body and this can cause things like drooping eyelids and let’s face it, nobody wants to end up looking botched.
3. Counterfeit substances can have extremely harmful effects on your health
4. If machines are being used in the treatment and they only operate one type for everyone, run the other way, there is no such thing as a ‘one model fits all’ when it comes to skin care.
