-Gross-Pointe-MILooking for a great theme or activity for your next big bash?  If you’re thinking of offering your guests the chance to experience Botox from the comfort of your home, repeat after us: “Just say no to Botox parties.”

Thanks to reality TV shows like “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and “Real Housewives,” many people have been introduced to the concept of the Botox party.  Think of it as the Tupperware party for the 21st-centruy: an aesthetic consultant “hosts” the party and provides Botox injections to guests.  Usually the party host pays for the cost of Botox injections at a discounted rate.

Sounds like a great version of a spa party, right?

Actually, Botox parties can be incredibly dangerous.  Although Botox is an easy and popular treatment, it still needs to be administered by an experienced and knowledgeable professional.  Ideally, you want a plastic surgeon administering your Botox, as they’ll be handling needles near your face.

Speaking of which, Botox parties can be incredibly unsanitary.  There’s no guarantee that you’re getting the cleanest treatment; what’s more, the environment you’re receiving the injection in might not be 100% sterile.

When in the right hands, Botox can do a lot for you.  It can help diminish strong lines and wrinkles on the forehead, lift your eyebrows, and even help with severe sweating problems.  But in the hands of the wrong person, it’s very easy to get the dreaded “frozen” look that’s a clear indication you’ve had work done.  You not only want someone who has years of experience administering Botox; you want to work with a professional who can help you achieve your desired results.

Botox parties may sound like fun at first, but don’t risk putting your health into the wrong hands.  Make sure you only get Botox injections at a plastic surgery practice from an established professional.  At Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Tupelo, MS, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Craig and his staff can help you achieve a subtle yet youthful appearance with expert Botox injections.
