Health Canada is advising Canadians that several unauthorized health products were seized from Revoskin (2299 Burrard Street) in Vancouver, B.C., because they may pose serious health risks.
The seized unauthorized health products were being administered as injectable treatments for cosmetic purposes. They include injectable drugs (botulinum toxin type A in "Nabota" and lidocaine in "Ouye"), and injectable medical devices such as dermal fillers.
Unauthorized health products have not been approved by Health Canada, which means that they have not been assessed for safety, effectiveness and quality. Selling unauthorized health products in Canada is illegal.
