Botox Parties

Crank it Up While You Freeze Your Face

— March 23, 2007 — World
Botox parties may face new regulations soon in New South Wales. These parties have become very popular among women and involve a couple drinks and the invitation of a "Botox cowboy" to come and do group injections on the women to help make the treatment more cost effective. There are risks involved, especially when conducted in casual facilities without proper medical care or certified practioners. The NSW health ministry will examine advertising that impliments the use of before and after images to promote the benefits of the procedures.

Health Minister John Hatzistergos says he would like to see the implimentation of "a disciplinary code enabling the medical board to act against doctors or others engaged in cosmetic medical procedures," according to

Hatzistergos said that the ads are deceptive and that "the promotion of these sorts of treatments in social settings where people are drinking alcohol and not in a position to be able to make informed decisions, are totally inappropriate."

Botox was being advertised as anti-wrinkle or anti age line injections since advertising Botox itself breaches the Therapeutic Goods Act. Hatzistergos is very upset with the lax use of the treatment and was reporting saying, "Doctors are health professionals and should act as health professionals, not as used car salesmen."

“The problem with botox is you're talking about paralysis in areas of the face. It's not permanent, but you can look pretty terrible for those three to four months if it's not in the areas you want.”
