Protecting Your Aesthetic Journey: Understanding Counterfeit Botox and Choosing Safe Alternatives

In recent news, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has issued a warning regarding the prevalence of counterfeit Botox in the market. This alarming development underscores the importance of ensuring the safety and efficacy of aesthetic treatments, especially when it comes to injectables like Botox.

At ACPS, we prioritize the health and well-being of our patients above all else. That’s why we exclusively use FDA-approved products, including Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify, sourced directly from reputable manufacturers. Our commitment to quality and safety extends to every aspect of our practice, from the products we use to the procedures we perform.

It’s essential for patients to understand the risks associated with counterfeit products and how to identify them. Counterfeit injectables can pose serious health risks, including infection, allergic reactions, and adverse effects on treatment outcomes. By choosing a trusted provider like ACPS, patients can have peace of mind knowing that they’re receiving authentic, high-quality products administered by skilled and experienced professionals.

Here are some key points to consider when selecting a provider for aesthetic treatments:

  1. Choose FDA-approved products: Only use injectables that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use. These products undergo rigorous testing to ensure safety and efficacy.
  2. Verify the source: Ask your provider where they source their injectables from. At ACPS, we procure our products directly from the manufacturer to guarantee authenticity.
  3. Look for licensed professionals: Ensure that your treatment is being performed by a licensed and experienced medical professional. Our team at ACPS consists of board-certified plastic surgeons and trained injectors who prioritize patient safety and satisfaction.
  4. Be vigilant: Familiarize yourself with the packaging and labeling of FDA-approved products to spot any inconsistencies or irregularities that may indicate counterfeit products.

At ACPS, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest standard of care and ensuring their safety throughout their aesthetic journey. If you have any questions or concerns about the products we use or how to spot counterfeit injectables, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Your health and well-being are our top priorities.
