A Brampton woman accused of performing botched Botox procedures has been charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm.
Botox should be performed by a highly experienced and trained physician such as a dermatologist. Botox has been around for more than 20 years, its cosmetic use was developed in Canada, and it is used in almost all ages for a variety of conditions from bladder dysfunction, to hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraines, wrinkles, club foot, and cerebral palsy. Unfortunately in Canada, for unclear reasons, the use of Botox and other cosmetic procedures is unregulated and pretty much anyone can do these treatments. It is very much a buyer beware marketplace out there, and people are being hurt unnecessarily. Be smart, go to a trusted and highly trained dermatologist to have your cosmetic treatments for optimal results and safety.
