White women threw a Botox party at their house which other white women attended, to get big lips and other injections. One of them is unhappy.
A woman named Rachael Knappier attended a Botox Party at her friend’s home, where she received a few botox injections to her forehead which apparently went well.
The 29 year old woman was then offered a discount on the Big Lips Botox portion of the party. She took it.
Rachael told The Sun:
“My friend had raved about this beautician and how great she was so I decided to go ahead. The beautician – who I assumed at the time was a nurse – didn’t ask me to sign any consent forms so alarm bells should have rung. But being at a party with friends took away all the seriousness of having filler injected into my face.”

We have been innudated with requests for our lovely Rachel, who was botched and mismanaged by a local beautician, (who is unrepentant and is still practising). We've attached this video taken shortly after the injections themselves, and we'll post a series of videos if you wish? Who would like to see the video, of her now, and the difference now she has had a little time to recover and of course been treated several times by our Dr James? We're happy to post with Rachel's permission. Her capillary reflow at this stage was 6 seconds (normal is under 2), which means that the blood supply to her lips is being compromised and starving the tissue of vital oxygen. Rachel has asked we used her words with her permission to let you all know how she is doing. "Thank you all for all your messages, kind thoughts, and concern for me. It was without a doubt one of the most distressing things I've been through. My lips have started to reduce in size but I am left wondering what damage has been done, and am completely traumatised. I would never ever advise going to a beautician, for what is essentially a medical treatment. I will be taking legal action, and therefore will not be able to discuss the particulars of this at this time, but I will keep you posted. It's a long recovery with further treatment ahead. lesson learned. Time will tell how well I recover. I don't want to think about what would have happened if this post hadn't been picked up by the Consultant Clinic, so please learn from this and be safe. No to beauticians. See next post for next stage of treatment. As soon as I have a rubber stamped negligent judgment (and I am moving speedily), I will name the beautician and the beauty salon who made profit from me, in the interests of safety. I won't stop until she no longer practices, and I want to create awareness, no matter what".She's heartened by your well wishes, so thank you and NEVER EVER consider a beautician. Ever. 🆘🆘⚠️🚨DO NOT REPRODUCE ANYWHERE WITHOUT EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT BY THE CONSULTANT CLINIC🆘🆘⚠️🚨
Rachael said that the beautician had noticed a bump on her lip from a teenage injury and offered to inject some filler:
“To be fair, she told me to go and have a think about it in the kitchen but she’d found my weakness,” she said. “My lip is the one thing that really bothers me about my appearance.”
This is how Rachael used to look
Rachael continued to say:
“She was visibly shocked, clamped her hands over her mouth, told me I was having an allergic reaction and that I needed to take antihistamine and get to [hospital],”
Rachael went to the doctor and was given several doses of dissolving agent into her lips that began to reduce swelling nearly 72 hours later. She now says her lips are returning back to normal.
Rachael then found out that the Beautician at the party was released from prison a few months earlier, and is now planning to take legal actions against the Beautician saying she was not qualified to give injections at a Botox Party her friends threw.
“I would never go near a Botox party again. I’m cross that I didn’t do my research and just assumed that everyone who injects Botox and fillers has been to medical school, I could have had the same reaction to the filler with a doctor but the difference is that they would have known what to do to treat it.”
