The Coalition offers consumers these very simple questions to ask
before considering any cosmetic injectable procedure:
-- Doctor: Is the injectable recommended by a qualified doctor who
regularly treats similar conditions, in an appropriately licensed and
equipped medical facility? Has the doctor examined the prospective
patient before recommending treatment?
-- Brand: Is the injectable recommended approved by the U.S. FDA, in the
U.S. and by equivalent agencies in the country of origin for cosmetic
indications and is it appropriately labeled and packaged to reflect its
authenticity and approval?
-- Safety: Is the setting a proper medically-equipped office, with safety
and sterilization procedures? Has the physician evaluated conditions,
recommended treatment, offered alternatives and clearly defined the
potential outcomes including any complications?
