MAKING THE RIGHT
Our founder Debra opened Newtown MediSpa offering a new concept in wellness that combines beauty, wellness, and pampering. Today, with locations in both Newtown and Fairfield, Debra enjoys educating clients about their skin and recommending personalized products and treatments.
Remember, it’s about the person holding the syringe, not the syringe itself! So, choose your injector wisely, it’s your face after all! Educating our patients is always a top priority, so in every treatment room, we display these tips as a reminder to our patients on how important it is to have trust and understanding with your injector.
The tips below talk about Botox, however, they can be applied to other types of aesthetic treatments, injectors, and practices.
CHOOSING YOUR PRACTICE
Get to know your provider & make sure they know you! Facial aesthetics is an art. Your practitioner needs more than the educational knowledge of how to inject, they need the artistic talent to know where to inject and what YOUR individual preference for outcome is. Newtown MediSpa’s Master Certified injectors pride themselves in aesthetic techniques that create cultivated, natural results.
DID YOU KNOW? Our owner, Debra Sullivan, is an educator for the Allergan Medical Institute, only 1 of 3 in the state of Connecticut. Debra trains Doctors, Physician Associates, and APRN’s in Botox, Juvederm, and Kybella injections. Also, Newtown MediSpa has 6 “Certified Master Injectors” on staff. Our Master Injectors receive continuous medical education and ongoing skill assessments to maintain such esteemed recognition in the aesthetics field of medicine.
BOTOX HAS A TIME LIMIT
How OFTEN is Botox injected by the practice? Once a vial of Botox is reconstituted (prepared with saline), the solution starts to degrade within 4 hours. It is not recommended to sell Botox which has been reconstituted after 72 hours. This is known as “old Botox”. Some practices store “old Botox” for weeks at a time resulting in poor results and decreased longevity of Botox.
DID YOU KNOW? Newtown MediSpa providers inject hundreds of patients per week and reconstitute 10+ vials of Botox daily! You can always rest assured you are receiving fresh Botox at Newtown MediSpa for the long-lasting results you expect.
MAKE SURE IT'S AUTHENTIC
If you are paying for Botox, make sure it IS Botox! Allergan, the makers of Botox, only sell directly to registered and licensed medical practices. However, many practices have been caught buying Botox on the “black market.” This is not only illegal but very dangerous for you! The FDA does not regulate the “black market” Botox and therefore can not guarantee its safety or efficacy.
Only go to a licensed, registered practitioner. Also, ask to see the bottle!! If the writing on the bottle is in a foreign language, you should not be treated.
DID YOU KNOW? Newtown MediSpa is an Allergan “high volume” practice, ranked #1 in Connecticut and in the top 0.5% of practices in the nation. Go to Botoxcosmetic.com and search CT “by volume utilization” to find a list of legitimate Allergan practices. Newtown MediSpa ranks at the top of the list!
KNOW WHAT YOU’RE PAYING FOR
Make sure you receive what you pay for!
Many offices charge Botox “by the area” instead of “per unit”. The “by the area” approach is deceiving as you do not know if you are receiving an adequate FDA recommended dose. Always ask how many units you’ve received and figure out the price per unit. This way, you can be sure you are not being undertreated & overcharged.
DID YOU KNOW? At Newtown MediSpa, we only charge per unit and offer many ways for you to save on your treatments with our Botox Club programs, monthly specials and events.
We are awarded #1 Practice in Connecticut for a reason!! Allergan awarded us #1 practice for a reason! We earned it…thanks to our loyal patients and their word-of-mouth referrals.
