Why You Should Stay Away from Do It Yourself Botox Kits

By Therese Laserase Subscribe to RSS | March 1st 2012 | Views:

Do it yourself kits, especially in the beauty business are attractively priced and come with an instruction leaflet, giving the impression that it is perfectly safe to buy and use them. This is tempting for the budget conscious consumer for whom treatment in a clinic can prove far more expensive. Unfortunately, statistics show that Do it yourself Botox kits can be spurious and often prove fatal.

Why Do it yourself Botox kits are attractive

As a non-invasive cosmetic treatment, people in Belfast prefer Botox as it involves an almost painless injection to achieve smooth and youthful looking skin. This is a common treatment with few side effects, if applied properly in the right setting by the right professional. The do it yourself Botox kit is attractive because it costs less than half the price charged by a professional. It is also convenient to try it at home especially for those with time constraints.

Why Do it yourself Botox kits are risky

Under Federal law, it is illegal to distribute Botulinum toxin or Botox commercially for human cosmetic use unless it is approved by the US FDA. Buying a kit off the shelf and injecting the Botox into the facial muscles or elsewhere carries dangerous risks.

A standard Do it yourself Botox kit contains alcohol prep pads, a topical numbing cream, a couple of syringes and two vials of Botox that promise to reduce frown lines and wrinkles. An instruction DVD along with instruction sheets and directions, with a facial chart shows how the injections must be administered.

Some of the risks of using these kits are:

• Paralysis of one side of the face, causing it to sag and droop

• Ptosis of the eye, a common complication

• Abscesses, blisters and lesions on the skin

• Infections that get progressively worse

• Blindness

• Disfigurement

It is not difficult to identify bogus Botox kits. One of the chief indicators is price. Another sign is the manufacturing information. Most of these kits are made in China or other third world countries where the processes are not regulated.

Safety first

Do it yourself Botox kits are not the ideal way to save money on beauty treatments because the risk is too high. Botox contains components that cause paralysis and is not supposed to be handled by people without medical qualifications.To avoid all these problems, it is always advisable to approach a qualified doctor in Belfast.

There are many cosmetic kits that are safe to use at home. Botox, however, is not one of them. It is scary to see that anyone can buy a kit online easily and expose themselves to the risks, compromising their safety. Although it is only an injection, Botox is still a medical procedure involving a potent toxin that has the ability to cause paralysis. If injected into the wrong area by oversight, it can prove fatal.

Remember that Botox injections must only be given by a licensed and experienced doctor in Belfast in a sterile environment such as a hospital or clinic.
