Botox Parties

Recently, there’s been a worrisome trend: Do-it-yourself aesthetics treatments given at so-called “Botox parties” are resulting in unfortunate outcomes.

As cosmetic fillers and other procedures have become more popular with a wider range of patients, certain under-qualified providers have begun hosting Botulinum toxin parties at which such treatments are performed. Unfortunately, botched results may be difficult to undo.

Botulinum toxin is a potent medication

Botulinum toxin is a potent medication with possible side effects. Therefore, it should only be administered in a medical office by well qualified staff under the supervision of highly-experienced professionals.

A private home or other informal location is not the appropriate place to administer Botulinum toxin or dermal filler treatments. Such “informal treatments” are responsible for a disproportionate number of medical complications which arise afterward.

Before participating in a “Botox party,” ask yourself these important questions:

  • Was I asked to provide a medical history, including history of allergies?
  • Was I advised about any alternative treatments?
  • Were the potential risks and side effects discussed with me?
  • Will I receive appropriate follow-up care after the procedure?

You’ll recognize these questions as being an essential part of the standard medical assessment that should be conducted before any kind of medical procedure, including injections of Botulinum toxin or dermal fillers.

Stick with well-qualified providers

Some short-sighted individuals risk informal medical procedures because they want to save money. Yet, the reality is that you can’t put a price on your health, nor on your beauty or physical appearance.

Do you really trust a non-professional part-timer?

Dermatologists and other licensed practitioners are the best qualified and safest way to have Botulinum toxin or dermal filler treatments, since they have the best understanding of your facial anatomy.
At Mountain View Dermatology & Aesthetics, we have more than 25 years of experience with Botulinum toxin, dermal fillers and other anti-aging and aesthetics treatments.
