I bought a groupon for 20 units of Botox from Dr Stanciu's office. First off, I had to wait a long time before I was seen even though I was the first client after the office lunch break. Dr Stanciu declared that I needed an additional 40 units (60 units total) to do my forehead (my previous doctor used 30 units for my forehead and around my mouth with very good results). Dr Stanciu spend very little time listening and began injecting my forehead at top speed. Never had anyone provide Botox injection services in such a bizarre manner. I felt like a pin cushion. After a week my forehead was still not smooth so I went back for a correction which was provided at no cost. This time the doctor was a bit more relaxed and polite. It has been two months and the effect of the treatment is already going away. Normally it lasts at least four months. I discussed this with two top rated cosmetic surgeons and it appears that Dr Stanciu probably watered down the Botox quite a bit. Of course this would explain her need to inject so many units. I paid $6.4 for the 20 units on the groupon, a very good price, BUT apparently they were only about 50% Botox the rest was water. So not so cheap after all. Then I paid $10 each for the 40 upsale units. That's the price the highly rated cosmetic surgeon charges, except he provides actual Botox, not a watered down version. Needless to say I feel cheated and will never go back!

For my 50th birthday I tried Botox for the 1st time. And I learned THEN, that not all doctors suggestions are from the heart. I landed in one of those Botox mills running in town where the doctor will inject Botox when you dont need it and/or try and sale you on other products. I will not mention names but it worried me. However, when I met Dr. Alina Stanciu I knew I was in good hands when she performed Botox a year ago. But I had other facial imperfections that needed addressing. I was bitten by a dog in the mid 80s and a half inch scar near my lip which has ALWAYS bothered me and I felt it attracted attention to my other facial imperfections, like my off-balanced lips. Dr. Stanciu discussed several options, their side effects and recovery time and my wiped away my concerns. NOW I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. She took all the proper measures and customized several procedures using Belotero Balance Gel. She told me what to expect; minimal pain, some tenderness, swelling, redness and slight bruising. And she was right. She also gave me a list of what to do and what not to do. So heres the bottom line. Dr. Stanciu has the knowledge and expertise in her field. She is all about making sure the patient receives the results they want and never appearing overdone. She answered all my questions, spent time with me, never made me feel rushed, and her staff is friendly and they work as a team. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Stanciu to my friends and family. My results have been absolutely great. She is now and forever my go to doctor in helping me retain my youthful glow.

Being seen by this doctor was one of the most horrible experiences. She has the worst bedside manners. Waited 4 hours the first appt i had and 3 hours the second (because she over slept) She gave me juvederm injection that left me bruised for two weeks and it didnt hide the frown lines. went back to her and she wanted to charge me more. worst doctor in the world. would invest money in a real plastic surgeon next time
