Recently, 4 docs in Albany, NY were fined for injecting a non-FDA-approved product called Tri-toxin, meant to deliver Botox-like effects.  How do you know if you’re getting the real Botox when you visit your doctor for anti-wrinkle treatments?

The real Botox packaging produced by Allergan has a holographic image on the label. Similarly, Dysport, another wrinkle-reducing injection has a hologram on the vial. If there is any question in your mind, ask your doctor if you can take a look at the label on the bottle and the expiration date.  Your physician should not mind.
