DIY Botox ‘poses health risk’

DIY Botox 'poses health risk'Self-administered Botox treatments should be avoided as they have the potential to cause serious damage, one expert has warned.

Speaking to the New Zealand Herald, president of the New Zealand College of Appearance Medicine Dr Teresa Cattin explained that Botox kits purchased over the internet for use at home can be counterfeit.

DIY kits bought online that have been tested by the college have been found to contain cooking oil and Dr Cattin urged those who are considering such treatments to have them administered by a specialist.

"The products we use are prescription medicines and they're prescription medicines for a reason – you only want to be injecting stuff that is tested," she was quoted as saying.

Sheena Upton, the mother who said she had given her eight-year-old daughter Botox injections at home, has now told website TMZ that she was paid to lie about the story – a claim that has been denied by the reporter involved.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800554437-ADNFCR
