Be Aware of Pirated Botox & Cheap Botox Deals

From time to time, foreign manufacturers who are not licensed to do business in the US, recruit physician and non-physician injectors to purchase non-FDA approved contraband Botox-like products at cheap prices. These unethical injectors then pass off these deplorable products as brand name Botox enticing customers with cheap prices!

1. It is illegal for a US licensed physician to purchase any non-FDA approved foreign drug. The Drug Enforcement Agency and the Department of Justice view these activities as drug trafficking.

2. It is unsafe for humans to be injected with non-FDA approved foreign drugs. The most critical example of Pirated Botox gone wrong was a Florida physician and three of his patients who ended up on ventilators and almost died.

3. If these products don’t harm you, they end up having mediocre results or are completely ineffective.

Buyers Beware! How can you be sure you are getting real Botox? A colorless odorless liquid? By choosing to go to a trustworthy expert with an excellent reputation, tons of experience and great results.

Do the Botox Injections Hurt?

“Everyone’s pain threshold is different”, says Dr. Bonakdar. With this understanding, she has developed a painless method of administering your Botox. She uses ice before each needle prick to numb the area. She uses tiny needles that she refers to as her “Gucci needles” to minimize discomfort. Those who are needle-phobic have the option of numbing with topical anesthetic.

Will There Be Any Bruising?

No one wants to get a bruise after a Botox treatment. Dr. Bonakdar minimizes your bruising risk with her Bruise Free method. To start with, using ice and her “Gucci Needles”, already gives you an advantage. For those who tend to bruise easily, Dr. Bonakdar uses a handheld infrared vein finder called Accuvein. This technologically advanced tool locates the veins under the skin that are not visible to the naked eye. Using an Accuvein, Dr. Bonakdar prevents embarrassing bruises from happening. There are things that you can do to minimize your risk of bruising. Dr. Bonakdar recommends that you do not drink alcohol or take any vitamins, herbal supplements, and medications that are known to thin the blood 10 days prior to your treatment. These include anticoagulant, aspirin, fish oil, vitamin E, St. John’s wort, Ibuprofen products or any other NSAIDS/non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.




What Is Botox?

Botox is a purified protein from Botulinum toxin that temporarily relaxes muscle contraction activity. Currently, Botox is FDA approved for nine medical conditions and several cosmetic ones. At Bonakdar Institute in Newport Beach, Dr. Bonakdar uses Botox for many cosmetic enhancements. Botox Cosmetic history is as follows:

  • FDA approved in 2002 for treatment of moderate to severe frown lines
  • FDA approved in 2005 for treatment of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating
  • FDA approved in 2013 for treatment of crow’s feet or lines around the eyes

Is Botox Safe?

Botox is one of the most widely researched drugs in the world with FDA approval for therapeutic indications since 1985. It is approved and used in more than 75 countries. Allergan holds close to 800 patents for other potential uses of Botox.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox Cosmetic is delivered directly into the targeted muscles with a few injections using a tiny needle. By blocking the release of a chemical that causes these muscles to contract, Botox Cosmetic enables the facial expression to relax. Dr. Bonakdar will determine exactly where to administer your Botox injections to:

  • Relax hyperdynamic facial muscles that cause unwanted facial expressions
  • Prevent wrinkle lines from becoming etched in your skin
  • Reshape the face
