Botox Party Nightmares – 4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Participate in a Botox Party
If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it has taught us that we can almost do anything ourselves – from baking bread to home improvement projects. However, it is important to stick with the experts regarding medical procedures. Injection of Botox and fillers require precise placement by a certified medical professional.
What is a Botox Party?
A Botox Party is a casual gathering in a person’s home where someone comes to administer various injectables to a large group. Those who host the party in their home are often given various benefits and special offers such as free Botox products and other discounts.
4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Participate in a Botox Party
- The injector may not be licensed. There is a higher chance that your injector may not be a licensed medical provider at a Botox Party. This can cause botched results and significant complications. A provider administering injections in a clinic must be certified or licensed, so receiving treatments in a medical office is safer.
- The environment is not sterile. Medical procedures such as Botox and fillers must be administered in a clean and sterile environment to reduce the chances of infection and blood-borne illnesses. At-home environments are not clean and sterile like a medical office because the shared areas are not regularly cleaned.
- The “Botox” being injected may not be “Botox.” Do you ever wonder why the price for Botox at a party is so much lower than when it is administered in an office? Botox and fillers can be illegally imported, and it is not clear what product is being used. Our providers directly buy Botox and Juvederm from Allergan, the only legal way to receive products.
- Alcohol & peer pressure is involved. Not only does drinking alcohol while receiving injections increase the risk of bleeding and bruising, but it also impairs your judgment. Others around you, including the injector, may pressure you to spend more and get more treatment than necessary. You are given a customized treatment plan at a medical clinic in a clean and private office setting based on our certified providers’ recommendations and expertise. At Botox parties, the more product sold, the more benefits the host or injectors receive. Of course, with alcohol in the mix, you are bound to make a more hasty decision.
