There have been several reports of DIY Botox kits now available, meaning anyone can get hold of it and self-administer. While I’m all for the price of Botox coming down, this is the worst possible way to do it. A good Botox practitioner will understand all about the workings of facial muscles; their exact location, their depth and length so there is very little possibility of it all going awry. They’ll also be aware of how much Botox to inject to each muscle to avoid the ‘frozen’ look. The thought of doing my own Botox is akin to the thought of removing my own kidney. Needless to say, we’d strongly suggest that you don’t attempt your own needle-led facial rejuvenation!
