Is Generic Botox Safe?
My girlfriend likes to buy generic Botox off the Internet. Then she uses it at Botox parties. Is that safe?
Generic Botox Injections Are Not Safe
The short answer? No. Here’s why:
First, let’s look at what Botox actually is. Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and moderate to severe crow’s feet lines. How does it do so? Well, Botox is a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, and when injected into the underlying muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, it temporarily paralyzes them.
Because you can’t be sure what’s exactly in any “Botox” sold on the black market, you incur many risks by using such products, including paralysis, lop-sided lips, droopy eyelids, blisters, and infected facial sores.
Since Botox is a neurotoxin, buying generic Botox online poses serious risks. These substances are not controlled by the FDA, so the only way anyone can sell generic Botox on the Internet is by either bringing them in from outside the country or by selling counterfeit products. Both pose serious risks. Because you can’t be sure what’s exactly in any “Botox” sold on the black market, you incur many risks by using such products, including paralysis, lop-sided lips, droopy eyelids, blisters, and infected facial sores. You may even have to be admitted into intensive care. The risks of counterfeit Botox are so severe that dermatologist’s offices are seeing a rise in people desperate for professional help to erase their own mistakes. To make matters worse, doctors often don’t know what substances they are battling to remove. And the most careless applications of counterfeit Botox carries the worst risk of all: measuring out the wrong dosage could be fatal.
A Botox party could leave you with all sorts of dangerous side effects including permanent paralysis, nerve damage, scarring, infections and bruising.
And even if you have the real thing, don’t try to inject yourself. It’s just common sense. Botox requires sophistication to know how to reconstitute it, how to inject it and how much to use. Botox parties might seem like a comfortable and relaxing way to get Botox treatments, but they’re definitely not safe, especially if your friends are injecting you, or vice versa. A Botox party could leave you with all sorts of dangerous side effects including permanent paralysis, nerve damage, scarring, infections and bruising. Most experts recommend having cosmetic procedures, including Botox injections, in a doctor’s office or Medical Spa — not at a party.
The risks of buying generic Botox online and injecting it yourself–or having a friend inject it for you–far outweigh any money you think you might be saving. You’ll just end up spending more money trying to reverse the horrific damage caused by carelessly buying and injecting black-market Botox.
