Can I buy Botox® without a valid medical license?

No. Reputable online retailers request that you provide your medical license information. Botox® contains botulinum toxin and can be harmful when handled without the care of a highly trained medical professional. It is approved for use only by medical professionals, the type of which can vary according to country and region.

If you are not a medical professional and are interested in Botox®, talk to your doctor. Buying Botox® and injecting it yourself is dangerous and not recommended.

Websites that allow customers to purchase Botox® without a medical license or at a very cheap price are often fake and many steal credit card information. Counterfeit Botox®, which can jeopardize your medical practice, is often sold by these websites and can jeopardize your whole medical practice. Medical Spa RX sells only safe, authentic Botox® to licensed professionals.

Frequently Asked Questions about Botox®

What is Botox?

A favorite among physicians and clients, Botox is a non-invasive prescription medicine that temporarily relieves prominent wrinkles and irregular movements caused by muscle contraction. It is available in a powder form of 100 units per vial, which requires fresh reconstitution and preparation for each treatment.

The active ingredient botulinum toxin A is a highly potent neurotoxin that acts on the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. By blocking the transmission of cholinergic reaction, it prevents the muscle from contracting and leads to relaxation. The skin covering the muscles follows suit and expands, creating a smooth complexion without any lines or wrinkled imperfections. While Botox is commonly known for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, it also has the ability to relax other muscles of the body that spasm, such as in the upper or lower limbs.

Who is the ideal candidate?

This treatment is best for patients aged 65 and below who wish to correct deep-set wrinkles on their foreheads, between their eyebrows, and at the corners of their eyes. These wrinkles appear due to continuous muscle activity, such as squinting and frowning, which leads to the formation of lines and folds on the face.

It is also suitable for individuals with irregular muscle contractions and twitching, such as muscle spasticity in the limbs, chronic migraines, and cervical dystonia. For pediatric patients aged 2 and above who are suffering from cerebral palsy, this treatment can ease lower limb spasticity and lessen overactive reflexes.

It is not suitable for people who are susceptible to muscle deformity disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert Eaton Syndrome. Clients who exhibit allergic reactions to botulinum toxin should also avoid this treatment.

What are the treatment areas?

  • Botox temporarily relaxes the orbicularis oculi, the muscles that frame the side of the eye, and reduces the visible wrinkles developed through constant muscle activity, which are referred to as crow’s feet.
  • Botox can temporarily correct frown lines, known as glabellar lines, which are the deep, furrowed lines caused by extensive frowning and movement of the procerus and corrugator muscles.
  • Botox is injected intramuscularly to treat medical conditions such as muscle spasms, chronic migraines, cerebral palsy, and cervical dystonia by reducing their irregular muscle activity. Certain conditions, such as upper limb muscle spasticity, may require higher dosages.
  • Pediatric patients aged 2 and above who suffer from lower limb spasticity due to cerebral palsy may also receive treatment with Botox to lessen the effects of overactive reflexes.
  • Excessive sweating under the arms is easily corrected using Botox.

How does Botox work?

This FDA-approved injectable is made of onabotulinumtoxin A. Using an innovative purification process, it is sourced from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Albumin, the water-soluble human protein, aids in the delivery of the neurotoxin to the muscle cells. It acts by inhibiting the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which leads to the blockage of the cholinergic reaction. The muscle cells do not receive any signal to contract, and remain relaxed.

As a result, the skin’s surface expands and becomes firmer and smoother. This expansion removes any visible folds, thin lines, and wrinkles, leaving behind a smooth surface. With the correct dosage and administration, the face can maintain its natural expression without looking ‘frozen’. Through the same mode of action, this treatment works to soothe contracting muscles that cause irritating and painful muscle spasms.

Treatment details

Botox treatment should be performed only by certified physicians and dermatologists. For a more comfortable procedure, apply a local anesthetic according to the patient's pain tolerance. For preparation, reconstitute the powder using preservative-free 0.9% sterile saline, USP, according to the dosage outlined in the product pamphlet.

Each area of treatment requires a different concentration, dose, and injection point. For more information, refer to the product monograph for specific instructions based on each target area.

How long do the effects last?

The results of each Botox treatment may last up to 4 months. The effect is as immediate as 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Depending on the area of treatment, amount of medication prescribed, and the individual's biological condition, maintenance sessions can be carried out every 12 weeks.

Safety information

Although Botox is widely used and is FDA-approved, it can cause serious side effects if it is not handled correctly. Inaccurate administration may cause tense muscle reactions, including difficulty swallowing, speaking, or breathing;
spread of the toxin to other areas, causing muscle weakness;
vision impairment;
and loss of bladder control.

Common reactions that may occur due to the injection may include pain, redness, bruising, and swelling.

Recovery time

Minimal downtime is required and patients can return to their normal routine immediately after leaving the office. Results are noticeable within 24 to 48 hours. As this is a technique-sensitive treatment, the physician must be well-trained in administering botulinum toxin-based injections.

Treatment cost

On average, treatment may cost your patient approximately $575. Botox may also be priced per unit, and can cost up to $20 per unit.
