In my estimate, Allergan has tens of thousands of accounts across America. In fact, I had figured out from what my patients tell me that there are about 51 other Botox (and maybe Kybella) injectors that my patients could easily drive to. So there are a lot of account. I can’t vouch that all these accounts are folks that purchase directly from Allergan USA, etc. Anyway, I’m super thankful that my patients chose me for their injection of Botox or Kybella. If anyone is interested here is a list that I built up just based on conversations I’ve had with my Botox patients regarding where they have either gotten Botox before or where their friends get Botox: Listing of Botox injectors in the Modesto area.
Allergan has a internal ranking system of practices which encourages some friendly competition. These are the levels:
- Platinum Plus
- Top 500
- Top 250
- Top 50
- Top 25
- Top 10
They used to have a “Black Diamond” but that got replaced by top 500. This replacement probably happened a year or two ago.
I was at the Platinum Plus level for about 2 years, and just last year (the second half of last year), I got elevated to Diamond level. The Allergan company tells me that Diamond level means that one among the top 4% of their accounts. The points that get considered for this ranking includes purchases of Botox, Kybella, Latisse, Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, SkinMedica, and Natrelle Breast Implants. We don’t currently purchase SkinMedica products and we have very few Natrelle Breast Implants. This means that I made it to the Diamond level mainly on facial aesthetic injections.
Interestingly, they will tempt you with a ranking in the top 500 when you quickly dip into that list when you make a sizable order. This number changes rapidly. One gets locked into the top 500 apparently if you can be IN the top 500 list by the end of January 2017. So I’m currently just got to Diamond level, and maybe, just maybe, I can sustain a top 500 ranking till the end of this month. As of 1/9/17, my ranking is 383. But this can rapidly fall in a few days out of the top 500, but I thought I’d at least take a screen capture. Or maybe, just maybe, I can get a new status and claim to be a top 500 account by the end of January, 2017. In the end, this is all just for fun. I know that quality is much more important than quantity.
