Coupon Cutters Beware!

Do you subscribe to WagJag or Groupon? Do you ever wonder why ICLS does not run specials in this particular format? Well the answer is simple. Believe me, I’m the first one to snap up a good deal when it’s right in front of me, but I draw the line when it comes to certain things. At ICLS, we believe, “Going to a medical specialist is not expensive…it’s priceless!” Would you buy your brakes for your car on-sale? Would you shop for a bargain on bike helmets or baby car seats? Of course not! Why? Quite simply, it’s because these are items that you cannot put a price on. Items that you depend on to do what they were supposed to do and if they don’t, there can be catastrophic consequences.

I have to admit, I have used Groupon to buy a gym membership, a flatiron and even a wine rack, but when I saw discounts on Mole Removal, I was shocked!  Buying injectables, like Restylane® or BOTOX® through these discounting websites has become like buying an oil change. What are you actually paying for?  Is it a commodity, like gasoline or is it a medical procedure that requires expertise, follow up and aftercare? I can assure you, it’s the latter.

At ICLS, we spend countless hours training and honing the skills of our experts. Our nurses are certified by the companies that produce the injectables, as well as on-going training with the top physicians in the industry. Our physicians are board certified and train other nurses and physicians in the techniques that they have perfected.  The next time you see one of those emails with the “too good to be true” coupons attached. Think about whether or not the savings is worth the potential risk. But by all means, snap up the Glow in the Dark mini-putt offer! The only risk you have to worry about is, will your kids get a hole in one and win the game?
