Remember, back in November, we brought you the story of a Texas lady who was illegally selling fake Botox and filler products under the the name “Discount Med-spa”?
Well, it seems that her conviction and sentencing had no effect, as here’s yet another website selling bogus imitation Botox under the name Pretique. (link)
This material is to be avoided.
I have no idea what this product is. And no idea what’s really in it, how it’s manufactured, how potent it is, or any other quality control information. It’s certainly not anything remotely legal, and is in no way associated with any of the authentic manufacturers of botulinum for cosmetic uses, like Allergan. It’s a scam.
Avoid the use of these knock-off products. They could, like the people who used one of the other imitation products, known as “Tri-tox”, put you in the ICU on a ventilator.
And that’s not a good way to spend your summer vacation!
