Bargain Botox?

You all know that I am from the great state of South Carolina.

I love this state and am proud to call it home. However, sometimes we get some things backwards around here.

Case in point:
I was driving yesterday and saw a HUGE billboard that said "Botox $9" and then this lovely scantily clad model and under her it said "No appointments necessary. See what all the fuss is about."
Ok, there are many directions we could go with this one.

Here is where we should start-Botox for $9.

Now, I am all for a BARGAIN. I love to find a great bargain and get excited when I find an awesome one. The grocery store can be a great place to find a bargain between sales and coupons. TJ Maxx and Marshall's are great places to find bargains on name brand items.

One place that I do not feel that we should hunt for "bargain basement pricing" is Botox. Someone is going to inject toxins in to your body to adhere to your muscle nerve endings to stop those muscle contractions, therefore stopping wrinkles. Someone is INJECTING TOXINS IN YOUR BODY, but it will only cost you $9. Most restaurant meals cost more than $9, you can't get 4 gallons of gas for $9, but you can get a cosmetic surgery procedure to make sure your face doesn't move.

I thought that only doctors, nurses, or certified medical professionals were to administer Botox and I am pretty sure they make more than $9.
Next up, Botox availabe in the drive thru at McDonald's.
"Would you like to add a side of Botox injection to your $3.99 Extra Value meal?"
End Soapbox for the day.
Happy Wednesday.

  1. We used to have one of those billboards. If you read the fine print it is just for the first injection or something... then it's full price. It's really just to get you in the door. Although, I'm with you -- I don't want bargain toxins or full price toxins for that matter!

  2. Scary! Maybe they meant $9 the unit and you would need 30 units for the forehead.

    I just found your blog through twitter and signed up to follow you! Love it!


  3. I just emailed you at the bbg email address! Write me back!

  4. Yikes! I'll keep my wrinkles (thankfully not too many at this point) rather than inject that stuff in my face.

  5. I secretly want Botox, but it scares me so badly that I'll never do it.

    I ESPECIALLY won't do it for $9!!!

  6. Wow how scary is this!? It's like people who go to Mexico for breast implants! Um no... you go to Mexico for alcohol, maybe food... NOT plastic surgery!!
    Wow... $9 is less than most peoples prescriptions at Wal-greens!!

    Oh my....

  7. I don't even know what to say! The people who are getting the $9 botox are going to end up on Extreme Dr. 90210, getting their frozen faces repaired!

  8. I think I would have to pass on that deal!

  9. I'm surprised something like this hasn't surfaced here in Memphis! Oh my word. You know this $9 deal is probably done by someone named Boomer in the basement of his mother's house. Gross.

  10. Thanks so much for stopping by and introducing yourself. Your blog is fabulous and I just put you in my google reader so that I can hopefully spend some time this weekend getting to know all about you. Botox! YIKES!!!

  11. Botox is creepy enough as it is! Who wants bargain Botox? I am officially skeezed out!

  12. I wouldn't do botox for $900 let alone $9 bucks. There are plenty of stupid women who will flock there for their cheap ass botox injection. Okay, I'll step off the soapbox now too!

    Soapbox Betty!
