YHDerm – Trusted Injectables (Botox) and Trusted Providers

As you may have heard, the FDA began investigating reports of patients across multiple states becoming ill after receiving fake Botox (19 reports). Some of the reports have come from Florida, which may make you second guess your own decision to receive Botox – or really any injectable. For all YHDerm patients, let us put your concern to rest and explain the steps we take to ensure your safety.

YHDerm & Supply Chain Quality

First and foremost, we ONLY purchase all injectables directly from the manufacturer. We never purchase “gray-market” or online products. In the case of Botox, the manufacturer is Allergan/AbbVie. In the case of Dysport, the manufacturer is Galderma. We purchase directly from these manufacturers to ensure product authenticity and patient safety. Products are shipped via FedEx directly to our office – no intermediary and no storage facilities. We receive authentic packing slips and invoices that detail the lot number and expiration date of each vial or syringe.

This is the same process for ALL our injectable products. We primarily purchase from 5 injectable product manufacturers, and the process described above is the same for each manufacturer. We never buy from discounters, Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs), or online suppliers.


After more than 25 years in Naples, Dr. Cyndi Yag-Howard has built a reputation for the highest standards of care, quality, and safety in all patient interactions. We offer transparency to all our patients. Your medical records are meticulous and detail each injectable by brand name, lot number, expiration date, dosage given, area treated and patient response/result.

Avoid Fake Botox

By choosing YHDerm, you have already made the most important decision to avoid not only fake Botox, but fake anything. Most, if not all, of the fake Botox was provided in non-clinical, unlicensed settings like homes, salons, spas, etc. In many cases the price was “too good to be true” – literally.

Safety First

Your health, safety, and well-being are our primary goal at YHDerm. Led by Dr. Cyndi Yag-Howard, every person and every process at YHDerm has been constructed and defined by this principle. We know that communication is key to maintaining your confidence. Please feel free to contact us for any questions you may have 239-529-DERM (3376) or
