A few Botox legal issues have been arising of late involving Perth Botox parties. Groups of friends are getting together, often with illegally obtained cosmetic injectables, for a “Botox party”.
In Australia, there is a strict set of criteria around the use of Botox and other cosmetic injectables, which means there may be some legal issues with these parties, and lawyers may need to be involved.
What Does the Law Say?
In Australia, Botox is a schedule 4, prescription-only drug. This means it can’t be advertised to the public and must be administered with medical supervision.
