Los Angeles Woman Arrested for Selling Bogus Botox

August 4, 2008 § Leave a comment

A California woman has been arrested for selling counterfeit Botox over the Internet to consumers across the country. The U.S. FDA advises consumers to have medical procedures conducted by a licensed practitioner, and ask about the authenticity and origin of their cosmetic fillers before scheduling an appointment.

Non-approved injectable fillers can lead to botched cosmetic procedures. Last year, Daniel Serrano was imprisoned for injecting patients with what turned out to be low-grade silicon, similar to the kind used in auto lubricant, causing punctures in patients’ skin and even paralysis.
