Botox is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures. According to a recent ABC news article, over 7 million people in 70 countries around the world, this year alone, have received Botox. But one south Florida clinic apparently gave several patients counterfeit Botox. A spokesperson from Allergan claims that they actively work with law enforcement to stop counterfeit Botox. Additionally, they place a holographic prism of color on their labels. For the most part, incidences like this are very rare, but if you ever question the authenticity of the Botox being offered, there are some red flags you can look out for. Firstly, if someone is offering prices extremely low or at “bargain prices” it’s most likely too good to be true. Also, have an open dialogue with the doctor administering the Botox. Ask where he/she went to medical school, if he/she is board certified, and specifically in what board are they certified. Most importantly, after you’ve received your Botox, enjoy the great results!
