Botox Kits on the Internet - are people crazy?
The Internet makes it easy for people to sell and buy whatever their hearts desire .But sites such as eBay have been caught out for selling things that no person in their right mind should ever consider buying online DIY Botox, Dermal filler and Chemical Peel kits. One of these DIY kits appeared on the auction site, complete with the necessary needles and a facial map so that you know where to inject the Botox, for just £62.
It would be total madness not only to buy drugs (poisons, in fact) from an unregulated source, but also to attempt to inject them yourself without training.
If you want to get hold of some of this powerful toxin, it’s frighteningly easy. Google‘buy Botox’ a and you’ll find plenty of people willing to sell you the stuff, and other drugs. It’s estimated that around 600,000 people in the UK are gullible enough to buy drugs online every year – and we’re not talking about bona fide pharmacy sites. There are currently over 2000 websites offering prescription only drugs and toxic substances like Botox and facial fillers for sale to anyone who has a credit card...with no regulation or medical guidance. Strangely enough I've also noticed that people buy it online from so-called 'Canadian Pharmacies"
If you order one of the DIY Botox kits, you’ll get needles, some saline to mix up with the Botox powder, and a ‘handy facial map’ that will show you where you need to inject yourself.
If you’re putting the Botox in other areas of the face or neck, problems could include impairing your speech and having difficulty with swallowing. In America there have even been deaths from wrongly administered Botox.
It’s not just bad application that makes DIY Botox so dangerous, though. In America, there have been reports of people ending up in intensive care after using illegally obtained Botox, given in the wrong doses. You have no idea if it’s actually Botox you’re buying, whether the doses are correct, or if it’s sterile.Don’t risk your health with DIY Botox
