Beware of Fake Botox: Don’t Botch Your Botox!

Beware of Fake Botox: Don’t Botch Your Botox!

Since Botox was first approved by the FDA and put in use as a cosmetic treatment in 2002, it has been widely regarded as safe. The studies are there to prove it – Botox is a safe and effective treatment for moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

But, you should beware of fake Botox, which claims to offer the benefits of this sensational cosmetic injectable, as there is something more sinister about it.

Wait, There’s Fake Botox?

Yes, there are sources of botulinum toxin being distributed as Botox from unlicensed and / or foreign retailers. In fact, the FDA has even warned about this situation. The product being passed off as the name brand is not made by Botox-maker, Allergan.

So Yes, Unfortunately, You Need to Beware of Fake Botox, or “Faux-tox!”

Anything being sold as something other than exactly what it is could be unsafe. In the case of cosmetic injectables, it could be downright dangerous. “Faux-tox” can be completely ineffective at best, and cause facial paralysis and botulism poisoning at worst. Other common side effects of fake Botox may include lumps and bruising near the injection site, facial droopiness, and infection.

So why is there fake Botox? Just like with any other product, people are trying to improve their business’s bottom line at the expense of others by selling a generic product through name brand recognition.
