Just an update on self treatment with botox.
Outlets I'm familiar with so far seem to primarily ship South Korean product.
Alibaba from China ships that outlined below, but they all seem to come from South Korea anyways, not China - alibaba are just doing middleman work (though you can buy with trade assurance which one can't get from direct suppliers).
Direct south korean suppliers I've found are:
- Cosmetica sublime
There are a number of different south korean botox manufacturers;
These are some brands (there's a couple more) - and among them they seem to vary in potency.
The primary FDA approved manufacturer is Allergan (US manufactured).
"Filler world UK" does advertise botox and has a 5 star rating on trustpilot, but haven't read much on facebook groups etc about orders from them.
In addition to, their prices are about the same as getting botox done in a local clinic.
Might as well get a Dr to do it for me at those prices.
Point behind researching self admin botox is, at $300 for 3 areas, requiring 3 time a year administration to keep forehead lines at bay - cost saving is the aim.
As to south korean brands - I understand the strongest is called "Nabota" - but it was also listed online as being mass recalled in Thailand couple months ago for some reason.
I've tried "Botox" (top left) and "botulax" (bottom right of that picture).
First was very weak.
Botulax, not sure yet - just a few days post injection, but I used the entire vial (100 units) so I don't think it's too strong.
Are you using Botox as a monotherapy to treat your wrinkles or do you use it in conjunction with anything anti-aging related?
