I Want To Buy Botox Online

Never buy Botox online!

Botox and Dysport is only legally sold and injected by medical professionals.

Do not buy anything advertised on the internet as Botox for home use. There are specific techniques to injecting Botox and Dysport ($300-350 per area) that only docs and RNs know.

Be wary of doctors who offer super cheap Botox. You get what you pay for! (David Hansen, MD, Beverly Hills Dermatologic Surgeon)

Buying Botox online without a prescription is a very bad idea.

Buying Botox on-line is unsafe and illegal. This is actually a patient safety issue. There are multiple incidences of bogus Botox hurting people.

You don’t know what you are getting in the bottle. There are many excellent forgeries of the bottle out there.

Botox Cosmetic Is A Prescription Drug From The Allergan Company

Also, this is not something that should be injected by a layperson in his kitchen. This is concerns your health. Don’t do it on the cheap. Get the real drug and have an experienced injector put it where it should be. (Jeffrey J. Roth, MD, FACS, Las Vegas Plastic Surgeon)

Can I buy Botox Online?

In addition to the legality of purchasing a product like Botox online (it’s not legal to get it anywhere other than from a physician’s office), it could be a very big health risk to do so.

Botulinum toxin is a very dangerous compound when not properly controlled. Anyone selling “knockoff” Botox online is likely to not have the kind of manufacturing, shipping and quality controls in place to properly make, store and ship this kind of product.

Botox Is Still A Prescription Grade Medication

That’s the reason why the real thing is so much more expensive, because the way it’s manufactured, handled and stored is extremely important to the quality. In the best case, the product might not work for you.

In the worst case, it might kill you. Some of our competitors purchase Botox from overseas and we honestly pray for their patients that they do not get a “bad” batch. (Harold J. Kaplan, MD, Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Online Botox

My first comment is: who and how is going to inject the Botox for you? Next, run far, far away. No one knows the source of online Botox–i.e., if it is gray market product from Canada but really manufactured by Allergan Corp, or water, or worse.

Buying Botox Online For Home Use

It is terrifying that anything of this nature is accessible to lay people online. I would consider it unsafe and potentially deadly as botox is a derivative of a toxin. I have also heard that some online sellers post instructions for self-injection! This is terrifying.

Ask yourself: if you thought you had diabetes would you buy insulin online and watch a video on how to inject yourself? How would you set the dose? Several people nearly died in Florida last year after injections of. (Robert L. Kraft, MD, FACS, New York Plastic Surgeon)

BOTOX should be purchased from Allergan.

Unfortunately, there is counterfeit BOTOX that can be purchased world-wide. One of my patients purchased a vial of BOTOX via the internet for a ridiculously low price. I sent the information to Allergan, and it turned out to be a fake bottle with unknown contents. (Eric M. Joseph, MD, West Orange Facial Plastic Surgeon)

I Would Not Buy Or Administer Your Botox Online

Very unfortunate…

In a manner of speaking we have made this all look so simple that “even a caveman can do it”. Certainly if an aesthetician at a salon can safely inject Botox then anyone should be able to do it at home.

Our best and brightest have bowed to the almighty dollar and have trained all comers. The less than ethical have then trained all comers and it comes down to what we witnessed on this UTube Video for the do it yourselfer! Having stated this, I am totally amazed by those who watch everything they eat, exercise regularly, wash their hands after all contacts but will allow material to be injected into their body and not even know what it really is! I expect this trend to expand and the problems and negative outcomes will be sure to follow denigrating the entire industry.

It Is Not Safe To Buy Botox For Yourself Online

Lots of blame to go around starting with a greedy pharmaceutical industry, a few greedy and unethical medical practitioners, a government which has completely missed the real regulatory target, and a public which has become much too comfortable with the idea that the government watchdogs will not let anything bad happen to them.

Big trouble is around the corner! (S. Randolph Waldman, MD, Lexington Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Botox cannot be purchased without a prescription

Botox cannot be purchased without a prescription and it must be injected by a licensed medical professional. There must be something misleading on this website but don’t be taken. (Richard Baxter, MD, Seattle Plastic Surgeon)


I guess people will never learn. I find it amazing that our government allows this. The government permits laypeople to purchase potentially very dangerous medications on line, but began regulating me and my dermatolgy colleagues from performing simple procedures like KOH scrapings ( putting scale on a slide and examining it under the microscope for fungi), Fungal cultures ( looking to see if a fungus grew on a media), Gram stains, etc.

Simple, procedures that me and my colleagues had been doing for years, cheaply and accurately. On line pharmacies are the type of things they should be regulating ( and the banks, Wall Street, CEO salaries). Most of the counterfeit Botox floating around is Botox which is dilute or impotent.

But why be, at best cheated and at worst endanger your health. Make no mistake Botulinum is a very deadly poison and must be used cautiously. In a few weeks we will be interviewing a woman who was in the group that isolated Botox ( Schantz, Camp Detrick 1944-46).

She will describe the fear the labortory workers had when entering the Botulinum unit.

The authorities did close down the laboratory in Arizona which was supplying Botox to the unethical doctors and pseudo-doctors which were using it.

A hair dresser injected into one her customers and the customer died. A chiropractor in Florida was arrested and convicted after he and four others ended up in an ICU in respiratory failure. An Albany plastic surgery group was tossed into jail for using the bogus stuff.

Why take such a risk to save a few dollars? (Arnold R. Oppenheim, MD, Virginia Beach Dermatologist)

Buying “Botox” Online

It is illegal to sell Botox to non-physicians and I seriously doubt that what you will be getting is really Botox. Botox is one of the most fraudulently sold drugs on the Internet with fakes coming from China and other countries.

This being the case, why would you risk everything by injecting yourself with a substance whose safety, sterility and concentration you cannot verify? For your safety, do not do it. (Peter A. Aldea, MD, Memphis Plastic Surgeon)
