RealSelf displays advertising on the site to help trusted doctors and aesthetic companies reach an audience interested in what they offer. These ads support our site, which is 100% free to consumers: You can read as many reviews, ask as many questions and contact as many doctors as you want, all for free.
You can trust our advertising because:
Advertisers must qualify
You can trust ads on RealSelf because they are vetted before they’re posted. We only allow advertisements from aesthetic companies and from doctors advertising in their core specialty. This means you can trust that you won’t see an ad from a doctor unqualified to perform a particular procedure.
Advertisements are clearly marked
You deserve to know who is advertising on every page you visit. Ads on RealSelf are marked as “Sponsored” or “Advertisements,” giving you full transparency over what ads you see.
Ads never influence content
Advertisements do not influence consumer content. Advertisers can’t pay to edit or remove content, ever.
The bottomline is: You can trust our ads because advertisers are qualified, easily identifiable, and free from bias.
