Selling Botox on Ebay: Not a Good Idea

A woman in Mansfield, Texas is selling Botox on Ebay for about 95 cents per unit, which is literally pennies on the dollar for its fair market value.

This is very illegal, and very dangerous. She intends to sell this to cost-conscious people without any medical training, for use on themselves.

On her Instructions and FAQs page on (her website since 2005), she outlines how to inject oneself, with tips like, "Do three-four for each crowsfoot, five for your forehead midway between your eyebrows and hairline, and if you have that frown line between your brows then do three more evenly spaced there. That's it- you are done. Just saved yourself a couple hundred bucks! It will last just as if you had it done in a spa- about 5-6 months before you can start to tell it is fading."

On her website, she also sells Restylane, but spelled as Restylin.

She also assures everyone that her products are genuine and she is a MedSpa worker in Dallas, and thus can get the product very cheaply. Something doesn't add up, as Allergan wholesales Botox to legitimate doctors for 5-6 times more than what she's selling it at.

Several news stations in Dallas are working on this right now, and law enforcement won't be far behind.
