Illegal botox parties sold on eBay

CATEGORY: News

Consumer magazine Which? says it has found an ex-nurse illegally selling botox parties on eBay. A researcher posing as a potential customer was told how the seller had injected drunken customers with the anti-wrinkle treatment. The researcher was told the treatment had no possible side effects “apart from drooping”, although in fact bruising, bleeding and infection can all follow, and the procedure should only be undertaken under medical supervision.

An eBay spokesperson said that “eBay does not permit the listing of any controlled drug or item that requires a prescription from, or the supervision of, a licensed practitioner (such as a doctor, dentist, optician or vet) to dispense.” The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has said it will investigate the matter.
