The survey, conducted in March and April, 2008 is limited to a population of consumers with interest in cosmetic medicine and should not be considered projectable to all consumers. The summary of survey findings can be found at http://www.injectablesafety.org/newsroom.
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 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?
