New You Beauty & Anti-Aging Tip: Cosmetic online coupons are enticing, but before submitting your credit card for 50%-off Botox, ensure that you get more than what you pay for.

 Choosing a brand for your anti-aging or cosmetic procedure is not like choosing between MAC and Sephora eyeliners. The difference between the brand name as well as the physician you select will determine a possibly permanent change in appearance. “I always encourage my patients to ask me questions about why I prefer a specific product and what my preferences are,” said Dr. Doris Day, board certified dermatologist who specializes in laser, cosmetic and surgical dermatology in NYC. Dr. Day recommends that potential patients research a few brands (i.e. Ulthera, Fraxel, Botox etc.) that fit their needs and then check the manufacturer’s website to ensure that their potential physician is listed on the site. After the research phase, it is important to understand that generics don’t exist in the cosmetic world. Even though the deal says “Botox,” for example, you may receive a different product when redeeming your coupon. To verify that the coupon matches reality, do not be afraid to ask to see the vial of the product because elective procedures are for your benefit and your beauty.
