Botox Parties: A Closer Look
Like the Tupperware parties of the past, Botox parties are a growing social trend in the United States. As described on its website, Botox is a prescription medicine injected into facial muscles to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines. In recent years, Botox has become so popular that people have begun organizing upscale events for groups to socialize while receiving injections. These parties are often held in private residences, which offer a relaxed environment, and injections may be given at a discounted price. On the surface, Botox parties appear to offer a fun way to minimize wrinkles and improve appearance, while also enjoying some downtime with friends. Take a closer look, however, and one may find these events are ill-advised and sometimes even dangerous, creating an inappropriate environment for ensuring safe and effective treatments.
