Attached to the preparation instructions, which, as we are assured the sellers, you can easily use the means of rejuvenating itself.

Which risk is fraught with such an offer, you can guess, knowing how many problems occur in women even at the professional application of Botox for cosmetic salons. A much about what percentage of fakes in the volume of its online sales, and do not guess. Meanwhile, the use of counterfeit goods can lead to unpredictable consequences up to the ugliness and death.

Sales of Botox via the Internet - it is purely a crisis option, since injections in specialized salons and clinics of plastic surgery now, many can not afford, and youth and beauty still want. Specialists fear that the emergence of opportunities to buy botox web will lead to a whole epidemic of side effects. The fact is that modern humans have long been accustomed to buy medicines from online pharmacies. In Britain alone, about 600,000 people annually acquire all sorts of medicines in this way, and every year their numbers are growing.

Sites of virtual pharmacies have little control official organizations, so that their owners have the opportunity to provide impunity willing potent drugs containing narcotic substances, and allowed for sale only by prescription.

Last week, as the British newspaper The Daily Mail, a set of Botox, which includes a vial of the toxin, a syringe and a scheme for the introduction of the substance was sold on internet auction site eBay for just 62 pounds sterling, while in the cabin such an injection would have cost at least 200 pounds.

Along with Botox web brisk trade is to align the collagen deep wrinkles, unlicensed drugs to get rid of excess weight and negative health organizations bleach for the skin. In this case, the buyer of such goods does not receive any guarantee of quality - only verbal - and sometimes do not even know where to go in case of claims. Most such online stores are taking orders only in electronic form, without telling customers no address, no telephone company-seller.

Some of these Web pharmacies offer visitors a wide range of drugs, including requiring a severe dose antidepressants, immunosuppressive treatment for HIV and, of course, Botox, which is sold in the UK is restricted to medical personnel with the appropriate license.

Journalist The Daily Mail, as part of its investigation ordered the botox on one of these sites, was shocked: as payment, she was offered money to send the postal order addressed to a certain resident of Moldova Olga Paskar. "Warning: In order to guarantee a purchase, when you make a translation in the notes do not tell any details pertaining to our site," - said in a statement on the acquisition of cosmetic products. In addition, it says that at the request of the bank transfer order must specify the reason "The transfer of money to relatives for personal purposes."

Ordered the purchase was delivered a month later, on the premise in the "Sender" was the address of the post office in Odessa. In the form of customs declaration sellers have registered as Botox "product microorganisms. And in capsules instead of the usual transparent liquid were pills.It was assumed that not having any qualifications purchaser can prepare the solution, adjusting the dosage. Instructions for its preparation are not attached, not even the scheme of injections.

What would happen if, contrary to common sense still use this dubious "rejuvenating apple"? "If the toxin does not enter into a strictly defined point, we can come paralysis of facial muscles occurs, for example, sagging eyelid or eyebrow. If, however, will be paralyzed muscles of the eyeball, the consequences for vision can be fatal," - says Dr. Darren McKeon of Aesthetic Surgery Clinic in Glasgow.

"If properly get a shot in the chin or neck, you can lose the ability to speak or swallow. In such a case is already associated with at least one death in the United States," - said the expert.
