FDA warns against counterfeit Botox

Good to know- When the FDA clears a product, it also grants the distributor a federal license for sale and use in the United States. Products that are not purchased through the FDA- approved distributor may be counterfeit and pose a health risk. More to the point, federal law prohibits non–FDA-approved drug importation. Botox, for example, is shipped frozen. Deviations in the strict manufacturing, storage, and transportation procedures can’t be a good thing.
Here are the FDA-approved distributors for the most popular injectable treatments:
Botox, Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma: Allergan
Dysport and Restylane: Galderma
Radiesse and Xeomin: Merz
