at Botox Parties may be Dangerous
January 31st, 2006
With news of fake
Botox being distributed, how do you know which Botox treatment is
legitimate? The official Botox website lets you search for doctors in
your area that offer Botox treatments.
Many people are
going to unauthorized and illegal places to get cosmetic treatments,
such as Botox parties. It is in these circumstances that you are
putting yourself at risk for a slew of problems. According to the
Miami Herald, a 53-year-old Florida woman died in 2001 from getting
silicon injections in her buttocks at one of these types of parties.
reported by the same newspaper said that a Dr. Bach McComb's who had a
suspended medical license advertised on flyers ''Botox blowout, only
$199”. Mr. McComb is currently been sentenced for 3 years in prison
because the Botox was not the real thing; in error, he gave injections
of live cultures of botulinum toxin which was clearly labeled not for
use on humans. He did not do this maliciously; he did so in error,
causing himself and 3 other people to get ill from this mistake.
The moral of the
story is unfortunate, that when you are going to go through any medical
procedure you should check to make sure the doctor has a license to do
cosmetic medical procedures. You can also find a doctor through the
botoxcosmetic.com website which will direct you to a professional
cosmetic dermatologist’s office. You can shop around a little bit but
you can expect to pay about the same amount at each office.
insurance will also have lists of doctors that are dermatologist as well
and this may also help you find a legitimate doctor for the Botox
treatment. Health insurance will more than likely not cover this
treatment, but knowing that you are going to a licensed doctor should
put your mind at ease.
