Self Botox Injection
Doctors Without Borders
Dr. Andrew Jacono was featured in October issue of Marie Claire to discuss a growing trend of self-injections for Botox and other facial fillers.
“Don’t inject yourself sounds like a no-brainer, but some sites on the internet shamelessly serve up knockoff Botox and Restlyane to any desperate housewife, and even offer-videos on how to self-inject. But if you don’t want nerve damage or disfigurement with your inflated lips (as corrective plastic surgeons like Dr. Andrew Jacono of NY have seen), then steer clear.
