I see Botox as an extension of my surgical skill
I use my hands to do medical procedures, this is my profession.
The medical profession has given me knowledge. The surgical profession has given me procedure skills. I apply many surgical concepts to my Modesto Botox practice: such as reduction of infection, stabilizing patient vs. injector so that if the patient flinchees, the injector's hand moves with the patient, and the concept of finding the subcuticular layer - this is especially helpful in the injection of implanted gel fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse.
I am very picky about the types of needles that I use. Even if the needles have the same specifications - they can actually be very different.
I have been trained to have sense of feel to the needles as it slides through different layers of the skin/muscle. This sense comes from both surgery and acupuncture.
Dexterity - a highly valued asset
Artistry - music is a form of art, as is beauty.
I hope to use all my skills and experience when injection Botox. I only work out of one office - it is in Modesto, CA. I hope people will say that one of the best places to get Botox is Modesto, CA! There are also advantages to having Botox injected by a person (me) married to a plastic surgeon (Dr. Tammy Wu). People also ask, does Dr. Tammy Wu inject Botox? Yes, she does. She has a separate Botox cost per unit. In this case, we run separate Botox practices. We have the same telephone number, so please give us a call. We do use similar Botox techniques. She had taught me how to perform Botox in 2006, and monitored my progress till 2009. After that my artistic ways caused me to shift slightly from my original techniques taught by Dr. Wu. Our results are now slightly different, but I think that's expected since we are two different injection artists. My main role at Surgical Artistry is to take over the role of being the Botox injector (and dermal fillers) for the practice. We didn't set that goal till 2008. Thus Dr. Tammy continues to see the patients that started Botox in our practice in 2006 to 2008. Surgical Artistry was formed in 2006. Dr. Lee and Dr. Wu came to Modesto, CA in 2003.
We consider Botox to be a carefully executed medical/surgical procedure with careful planning by our patients. We do not want patients to feel like customers who buy on a whim. I am personally influenced by sales and coupons and I know what that does to me. That's not the effect I want to create by giving discounts on Botox and fluctuating prices.
We rarely have discounts on Botox at our practice. But, for all of our registered patients at Surgical Artistry, we have historically given $50 birthday coupons (subject to change and discontinuation). That helps! And we participate in the Brilliant Distinctions program - see Surgical Artistry's Modesto Brilliant Distinctions statistics - the link shows how much the program has given back to our Modesto Botox patients. Brilliant Distinctions is run by the company that makes Botox, and it's a "frequent user" program. The more you use, the more you save. We participate in it, but we don't make the rules and the discounts come directly from Allergan. For us and the patients and for Allergan, it's a "win, win, win" situation. They also have periodic Botox specials that they email to users. We can sign you up right after your first Botox appointment. I will be writing a webpage on "your first Botox appointment" - please stay tuned for that or search for it.
The best discount I can give is to do my very best and give you the lowest dose of Botox that would give you the results you want with a duration that is realistic. I hope you will consider my Botox injections to be of highest value.
Botox's own Brilliant Distinctions frequent user program. Patient can save about $100 per year on Botox
Brilliant Distinction emails - they will from time to time email specials that come directly from the Botox company (Allergan)
Annual Botox Birthday coupon which can apply to fillers. Patients usually get $50 from our office.
Natrelle Breast Implants (made by the same company that makes Botox) is one of the brands of Breast Implants that Dr. Tammy Wu uses, and sometimes, there are specials involved where patients can get some units of Botox for free.
Dr. Lee will do his best using his surgical, acupuncture and violinist skills to give you a great result.
We hope you will consider Botox to be a well thought out medical/surgical procedure for yourself, not as an on-sale item at a store.
Please call us (209) 551-1888 to find out the current price per unit of Botox. I currently do not have a separate consultation fee. So, if you're not sure about your own personal usage of Botox, please feel free to come talk to me. No pressures in getting Botox. I do want you to go home and think about it if necessary.

Everyone is different, here's an estimate of how much Botox would cost:

I wrote a bunch about "Why Modesto, CA" since I could go anywhere in the world I wanted to practice medicine. See more at the Botox Injection Artistry Home Page (www.injectionartistry.com). Why not stay in New York City where I was born? I guess the question is somewhat similar to why not Harvard, since I was accepted as a college student? I think I can see the value and opportunity of going to places other than what's "mainstream." I originally chose Modesto in 2003 for a trauma/general surgery position. My wife, Dr. Tammy Wu followed me here and quickly found a position at Sutter Gould, working mainly out of Memorial Hospital. After 3 years here, we thought it would be a great place to set up Surgical Artistry as a center of excellence for Plastic Surgery. So, we're here in Modesto, CA. Please come visit us.
