Home Botox Kits: A Dangerous New Trend?

This week a new ‘medical’ trend has been featured in the media – a home Botox kit. It promises to provide everything that someone needs to reduce the appearance of wrinkles with professional results. The risks are countless.

Risks of Home Botox Kits

  • Poorly trained professionals can make mistakes when administering Botox. Poor results become even more likely when the individual administering Botox has no medical training or knowledge of the muscular systems.
  • Injecting to the wrong area can result in  permanent or temporary paralysis in the face.
  • Hygiene is a priority when administering any injection. There are risks of infection that individuals at home may not know how to prevent.

Professional Botox Treatments

Botox kits are not worth the risk even if they save money in the short-term. The reality is that you risk your health and could spend many thousands of dollars trying to fix problems later. Come in for professional Botox administration for optimal results.
