Discount Medspa various drugs without prescription

A website called Discount Medspa (discountmedspa.com) is selling prescription drug similar to Botox without requiring a prescription. Discountmedspa sells DIY cosmetic treatments, like prescription Renova, and lip-filling gels. Discount Medspa even gives a how-to video, so you can inject the Botox unto your face yourself, yes, without the aid of a doctor or a nurse. The domain discountmedspa.com is registered to Cristie Stone. The illegal selling of prescription drugs is now under investigation.

“Botox is a prescription drug that must be dispensed or sold by a licensee pharmacy and only with a prescription from a licensed practitioner. Any over-the-counter sale of Botox is illegal,” the Texas Department of State Health Services said. it is illegal for anyone but a doctor or nurse practitioner to prescribe drugs to patients and only pharmacists can dispense drugs to people. Discountmedspa sells a variety of other DIY cosmetic treatments, including prescription Renova, and lip-filling gels. Laurie D’Alleva, a lady from Texas, who appears to be the site’s proprietor, performs treatments on herself in self-made videos posted to the site’s YouTube channel.

Wired.com reported that such sites are brazenly circumventing regulations that protect consumers from bad or fake drugs and ensure that the chemicals are used correctly.
