Are Botox Parties Safe?

We get a lot of questions about Botox parties here at National Laser Institute.  A Botox party is a social gathering at which Botox injections are given at a reduced price, often in a private residence.  While this may seem like a nice way to get Botox, most experts agree Botox injections should be done in a professional spa environment by a doctor or RN to minimize risk for both the injector and the patient.  This professional environment will ensure the proper measures are in place for safe and effective treatments.

Are Botox Parties Safe?


Botox Cosmetic, a form of botulinum toxin type A that’s used to correct facial wrinkles and is often referred to as simply Botox.  While Botox injections are safe when given by a skillful doctor or nurse, side effects and complications can develop, especially if the patient is under the influence of alcohol.  These complications can be heightened in this circumstance and can include pain and bruising at the injection site.

As a medical professional, if you are invited to administer Botox injections at a Botox party in someone’s home, a better way is to host an open house in your medical aesthetic spa or office instead.   This can be a great way to market your services while keeping the best interests at heart for your patients and your practice.
