5 Ultimate Money Saving Botox Hacks
5 Ultimate Money Saving Botox Hacks

As a plastic surgeon in San Francisco, I inject a TON of Botox into lots of different patients. My patients want to look great and save money- probably so that they can buy more high end coffee or a solar powered air conditioner for Burning Man next year. So, here are my 5 ultimate Botox hacks that should work for you, in San Francisco, in Santa Clara- or anywhere else in the world.

Know Your Botox Product and Your Botox Injector!
Sign Up For Brilliant Distinctions, the Botox Rewards Program
Go Shopping- and Get More Botox
Go To a “Botox Party”
Be Consistent With Your Botox Injections

Know Your Botox Product and Your Botox Injector!

You may not know this, but Botox is a brand name. It is a type of neurotoxin that temporarily weakens muscles, and works wonders for the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Other brand names include Dysport and Xeomin.

Botox is also injected by units- so, as an example, you may get 10-25 Botox units in the worry lines between the eyebrows. However, your injector will need to convert the same number of units of Botox into Dysport or Xeomin. 1 Botox unit does NOT equal 1 Dysport unit or 1 Xeomin unit.

So, make sure you compare apples to apples to apples, and not apples to oranges to cherries! You may think you are saving money- but you may actually NOT be getting the equivalent number of Botox units.

Finally, know your Botox injector! As a Plastic Surgeon who injects Botox in San Francisco and Santa Clara, I’m very familiar with injections and all of the subtle ways to give it. If you’re going to a non specialist doctor who just took a weekend training course last month- well, they may charge less, but I’m not certain if you’ll get the exact results you want.

Sign Up For Brilliant Distinctions, the Botox Rewards Program

Allergan, the makers of Botox, has a great rewards program called “Brilliant Distinctions”. Every time you get an injection of Botox, you get some points. These points add up- they can be converted into coupons or money off of future Botox injections.

Allergan runs this program, and will occasionally email you about special offers. And as you can tell- I don’t run this program at all, but it’s always nice to be able to redeem coupons for my patients through cyberspace. I know that my patients are able to save a little money, every time I see them!

The link to register for Brilliant Distinctions is below, at the end of this blog post.

Go Shopping- and Get More Botox

You read this correctly. You can now buy things, and get Brilliant Distinctions rewards points, and then redeem the points in my office for Botox.

Food? Clothing? Power Tools? That and a whole lot more can be purchased, and you will be less wrinkly after you redeem your points.

The link for the Brilliant Distinctions Mall is below as well, at the end of this article.

Go To a “Botox Party”

Any “Botox Event” or “Botox Party” is a great way to get discounts on Botox. I occasionally have these events in my office, and it’s a great way to meet new patients, see good friends, and be able to have special offers on Botox or other products and services.

So, if you’re close to me, email me at info@drkim.com and make sure you’re on my email mailing list. If you’re not close to me, sign up with a local plastic surgeon that you know and trust.

Be Consistent With Your Botox Injections

Botox will wear off after about 3-4 months. In my opinion, if you are consistent in your Botox injections, you should be able to use the same number of Botox units per visit, and not need a lot of Botox units to “catch up”.

If you’re only coming in to see me every 6-9 months, you may actually need MORE Botox units on each visit to make your wrinkles go away- and in a 12 month period of time, actually need MORE Botox! So, get your Botox injections more consistently.

Besides, it’s always great to see you!
