Is this botox going to happen at a botox party or in the office of a reputable doctor? I know someone with an autoimmune disease who had it done by a reputable doctor and she had a bad reaction to it - was it because of her autoimmune disease [which ITP is].

I have looked into several procedures like that, and decided that I will not have any foreign fluids injected. The safest thing, I thought, was a fat transfer from my own body. You can get basically the same result.

So, do I think they are safe? No, especially not when one has an autoimmune disorder.

I'd check with your doctor.
