Botox, Juvederm, Restylane and Laser Hair Removal in New York
“At What Price Beauty” Check out Today’s Deals
This is the title of an article from the New York Times on April 14, 2011, in which I was quoted. I guess that shows how far behind I am in my blogging. Anyway, the article interviews a number of high-end providers such as Oscar Blandi Salon and Jennifer Jablow, DDS, a highly respected dentist. I was asked about placing an offer in Gilt City for discounts on Botox, facial fillers (Juvederm and Restylane) and laser hair removal. I chose Gilt City since I am a regular consumer and I see that they represent quality manufacturers and businesses. My promotion ran in December so people can get a quick fix to look younger for the holidays.
I found the vast majority of patients to be really nice people and high-end consumers who were looking to try Botox or fillers for the first time, people looking for a new doctor to perform these treatments on them, and a few just looking for a bargain.
The next question was, would I do this again? I don’t want to repeat this offer for a long time since I don’t want to undercut my loyal patients who have been coming to me for years and paying higher prices and “cheapen my brand.” This sentiment was echoed by a patient on who I had performed surgery last year who owns a boutique public relations firm. She said she was impressed that I was forward thinking in running the offer on Gilt City but that I should “never do that again.”
