Botox, hyaluronic acid, fillers from overseas, and more - black and gray market injectables.
I'm often asked by patients how they can see specials for injectors offering Botox for $3/unit or a syringe of Restylane for $200. The answer is black and gray market injectables. Black market injectables would be those that are compounded by illegal pharmacies or companies that are selling illegal copies of fillers or Botox. It happens a lot. We get emails and faxes all the time from companies who offer amazing deals on injectables. But they aren't legitimate and they are fraud.
