Brilliant Shopping


As I sit here in my pajamas in the comfort of my cozy bed, I realize that online shopping has more benefits than one might imagine. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy heading out to my favorite stores and have my shopping days like everyone else. But there’s something to be said for avoiding crowds, picked over inventory, and standing in long lines on one of my days off.

If you’re reading this, then you are most likely a patient of ours and receive treatments or purchase products from us and wondering what this blog is all about. For those of you who are registered in the Brilliant Distinctions program offered by Allergan, this will benefit you in even more ways if you are an online shopper.

They have partnered with hundreds (if not more) of leading national retailers and brands when they launched the Brilliant Distinctions Mall, where you can earn BD points on every purchase. In addition to racking up  your points to redeem in coupon form at the spa, you can also take advantage of ‘Daily Deals’ and coupons through the BD Mall along with free shipping! I figure if I need stuff from Target, The Buckle, Bass Pro Shops, Boot Barn or Apple anyway, why not get additional perks? They even have airlines, hotels and other travel sites on the overwhelmingly long list to choose from.

Since you receive points on every purchase, you’d be surprised how quickly you can accumulate credit toward your purchase of Allergan’s products and purchases. I had a patient come in about a month ago who redeemed approximately $160 worth of BD coupons to pay for her visit. I’m pretty sure she actually left with a credit on her account! And, if you’re feeling generous, you also have the option of donating your points to Make A Wish Foundation.

To check out the program, visit their website at and register so you can start earning rebate points. You still get points for your Allergan purchased at our medical spa (Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Latisse and SkinMedica products), but this is just a nice little way to build on that so you’re pocketbook holds on to more $$$$.
