DIY Botox Injections

The do-it-yourself DIY Botox movement must be stronger than I though.

Evidently there are a large number of women who aren't put off by the though of injecting themselves with a paralytic. I guess these women are not needle-phobic either.

According to a web based poll, an English beauty site found that more than one in five women would conduct DIY Botox but only 11% would dare to cut their own hair.

Taking at-home do-it-yourself cosmetic medical treatments to a scary level, according to the poll of 1,356 UK women by www.goodsurgeonguide.co.uk,  22% would consider injecting their own face or forehead with a do it yourself Botox kit.

53% said that the decision to have Botox could be influenced by word of mouth.

78% of women would rather have liposuction surgery to lose weight than diet and exercise.

34% of women want liposuction but not sure if they want laser liposuction.

It is evident that there's still much work to do in the fields of educating and reassuring the general public on the reliability and safety of doctor's practices.
