Informative Speech Outline: Botox Rukaya Pinto DePaul University Attention Getter: Who in here has ever thought about getting Botox? Specific Purpose: To inform the class about what Botox is and its’ benefits. Thesis Statement: Botox is a form of injectable and can be beneficial to men and women in more ways than one. And how we can move away from the stigma that it is a vain procedure.
Through my research I found that Botox, the trade name for Botulinum Toxin type A, is a "neuromuscular junction blocking agent produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum" ("Botulinum Toxin"). In other words, Botox is derived from the same poisonous bacterium which causes botulism - a deadly food poisoning. The Botox works "by blocking the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which results in muscle weakness. It does not alter the muscle or the nerve, but prevents the relay of information between the two" ("Botulinum Toxin"). Therefore, Botox is beneficial in the treatment of wrinkles and frown lines because it causes specific muscles to relax, which in turn lessens the lines of facial expressions. Because Botox relaxes specific muscles, it is also used to treat a variety of medical conditions dealing with muscle spasms.
Botox consists of injections of botulin toxin, a poison that paralyzes the muscles. Some side effects include eye drooping, headaches, reduced blinking, and nausea that could last up to a couple of months. The injection can also cause side effects including facial pain, swelling, redness, and bruising (Flynn). By paralyzing different facial muscles, Botox may temporarily leave a smoother, wrinkle-free appearance, leaving the patient more confident in their own skin. Botox has short-term side effects that include bruising, allergic reactions, or paralysis of the wrong muscle group. A research study found that Botox might dampen or interfere with the ability to experience emotion in certain situations as well. When the muscle becomes paralyzed, the patient is incapable of moving/flexing those certain muscles in their face causes them to show less emotion physically (Ranoux). This can lead to long-term effects like depression if one keeps up the injections in those facial areas to take away the wrinkles. While this is an extreme case of Botox, there are many incidents that include this kind of reaction and some even concluding with
Botox is Not Permanent Aging people who are looking to look young forever often hold out hope that Botox is a permanent wrinkle treatment. However, that is simply not the case: Botox only lifts and treats wrinkles for about three to four months at a time. After that, the wrinkles will start to reappear. That's why so many people start getting multiple Botox treatments a year, sometimes as many as four every year.
Have you been looking in the mirror lately and starting to see those fine wrinkle lines become more prominent? Have you found yourself becoming more self conscious about your appearance and it is affecting your self esteem. You see, as we age, our skin loses moisture and elasticity, making it
The main goal for Botox is to block the chemical signals that are sent to cause muscle contraction. Botox is injected in small doses into targeted muscles where there are unwanted wrinkles. With this chemical block the muscles can no longer tighten and skin will flattens. This will give the main goal of having less wrinkled and smoother appearance that some people desire. Botox injection works by weakening or paralyzing certain targeted muscles and nerves in the area affected. The exact area that the Botox paralyzes is right at the begging of muscle contraction called neuromuscular junction.
