When patients come into the Palo Alto, CA, offices of facial plastic surgeons Drs. David M. Lieberman, MD, and Sachin S. Parikh, MD, they aren’t necessarily concerned with the authenticity of their Botox Cosmetic, Dysport or Xeomin—but it’s something the practice has a very strict protocol for handling.
“Whenever someone comes in for Botox, or for any injectable for that matter, our medical assistant takes the product out of the box and fills the syringe in front of the patient,” Dr. Parikh explains.
“Illegally imported injectables and fillers can be prevalent in some areas and patients should always be on the lookout for counterfeit products.”
