I read all the reviews on this site before coming. All the reviews really helped me with my decision, so I thought I'd write my experience to help others.
My first botox experience was a bust - I went to a glitzy chain med spa store in the mall (located in the suburbs outside of Boston). I won't say exactly where - but you can ask me personally if you want. The girl that did my botox wasn't even a doc - she was a P.A. (physician's assistant?). She gave me many injections to get rid of the double lines between my eyebrows. After 2 weeks, nothing happened, so I went back for more. I got a total of 22 units of botox. By the way, the botox she used on me smelled really strange! Like sour chemicals - anyone ever experience this? I got some wrinkle relief for a few weeks, then it wore off! I didn't even know it was possible. Anyone have an explanation?
Anyways, I went to Dr. Berdy a very skeptical person. I told him my previous botox experience and how the right side was lopsided. He said I needed 24 units and he would do his best. I got my botox on Friday evening (I did a walk in) and today is Monday night. My furrowing muscles are already 80% paralyzed. There is no lopsidedness and I do not need to go back for a touch-up. Dr. Berdy injected me in, I would say only 5 spots and some of the locations he injected me were different than the previous lady. His botox also did not smell like some weird sour putrid chemical. I bled much less than the first botox and the swelling was much less also.
Conclusion: This is a great price and the doc has skills. I have not found a better price here in Boston for botox performed by a real doc. The next time I make a trip to NYC, I'll be seeing Dr. Berdy again. I'll be sending my friends his way too. I'm definitely never going back to a chain med spa ever again. I was stupid, forgive me.
