Bootleg 'Botox' and Folly Fillers - Trend or Terror?
Posted on 11/03/2015 on behalf of Dr. Kenrick Spence, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Dr. Spence specializes in revisionary facial plastic surgery and he is seeing a dramatic increase in the number of patients coming to him with facial deformities, serious infections, and in some cases irreversible damage after being injected with bootleg "Botox" and folly (illegal) fillers. More and more people are being lured into clandestine hotels, 'spas' and people's homes, no questions asked, to be injected with 'cheap' "Botox" and "dermal fillers". What they don't know is that the 'cost' they will pay will not be 'cheap' at all. In rare instances when the 'fillers' can be removed the surgery required is usually more extensive than a facelift! Dr. Spence is a huge advocate for public and patient safety and is appalled by the terror of this so called "trend." He encourages people to ask questions first to avoid devastating results later.
