Black market Botox story reminds about importance of qualifications

botoxA California dermatologist was recently slapped for using “black market Botox” – he was reprimanded for injecting non-FDA approved botulinum toxin into ten of his patients. In an effort to save some money, he and a hundred or so of his colleagues purchased the black market Botox at medical conventions without realizing it wasn’t approved for use in patients. This story highlights just how important it is to find a reputable, board-certified plastic surgeon for your procedures, whether they are something as simple as Botox or something more complicated. Dr. Grenley is a well-respected surgeon in Seattle with extensive experience using Botox injections to melt away wrinkles.
