A quick internet search by anyone interested in receiving the benefits of Botox Cosmetic will show many ads giving you the opportunity to get Botox injections for as little as $7 per unit. Although your first reaction may be to jump at the opportunity to look younger at such a little cost, these promotions can actually be dangerous and should be avoided.
Not only is cheap Botox a bad idea, but it can also end up costing you more in the long run to correct its associated complications.
A spokeswoman for Botox manufacturer, Allergan, stated: “Only a licensed and trained physician with experience in aesthetic medicine should administer Botox Cosmetic as this is a technique-sensitive procedure and one that should only be administered in a proper medical setting, like a doctor’s office.”
If you are considering treatment with Botox Cosmetic it is advised that you find a Board Certified Surgeon with experience in administering Botox. Make sure that the Neurotoxin being used is the authentic Botox Cosmetic supplied by Allergen, Inc. as labelled on the vial. Lastly, beware of prices that are too good to be true, as they likely are, and the product is often diluted in more saline than required making the effect weaker.
