In this month's Prevention magazine, actress Dana Delany made an excellent point about why it's important to get a good doctor or esthetician for any cosmetic procedure. Seven years ago, Dana's dermatologist injected Botox into the wrong spot on her forehead and injured a nerve above her right eye.
Now, she says, "my eye has started to droop a little bit . . . I notice it more than anybody else, but I was symmetrical before and now I am not." The issue with Dana wasn't the botulinum, it was the man injecting it, and she points out that "something nobody ever talks about is doctor error." Besides asking for proof of board certification (and researching the doctor's track record), what other questions do you think are important to ask before getting a cosmetic service?
