Botox Parties – are you available?

Botox parties?

I got this extremely nice request today.  I always have a hard time saying “no”.  I truly like to make everyone happy.  But I had a chance to think about this many years ago, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just not good enough to inject at Botox parties.

Here’s my response:

Hi! Thank you for writing to me. I don’t do Botox parties – I’m so sorry. Thank you again for thinking of me. I don’t know a lot about Botox parties, but I don’t think I’m good enough to inject in a place which doesn’t resemble a doctors office or an operating room.  Oddly, those are my locations of comfort!  There’s controlled lighting and controlled height adjustments of exam tables. I think I’m too old fashioned. I like to control every element that I can – including the method of refrigeration of the Botox. So if I was at a “party” I think I wouldn’t be injecting very well. Plus, I get somewhat distracted if more than one person is talking to me at a time. I don’t inject too well when I’m distracted. So it’s my preference to just see one patient at a time at the office.  There are probably more than 42 other injectors of Botox in Modesto and the surrounding areas.

Thank you so much for thinking of me for the opportunity.  I am truly honored.
