Jenna Goudreau, a writer of business and women's health, states that “Botox injections paralyze certain facial muscles but may cause other active muscles to appear strangely overpowering. Any time you tamper with the body’s balance, you risk creating new problem areas”. People that are getting so caught up with how they want to look, aren’t thinking through what they’re really about to do to their bodies. In some cases, these surgeries could leave serious or even permanent damage. They also don’t realize that those part of your body that you’re altering can stop functioning properly or even in general. Jenna Goudreau again stated that “Many may not be prepared for a lengthy recuperation that entails fatigue, swelling and scarring, or are not thoughtful about the potential risks, like damaged nerves, infection or bleeding” and she is completely right with that. It’s so unreal how many people carelessly do things to their bodies without knowing real the problems that can range from a small scar you don’t like, to not being able to use a body part at all. This possibly leading to even more surgeries. This isn’t here to scare people away from the surgery, but to warn that making these changes to your body without knowing what could possibly happen to your body can be a real problem. If people knew and witnessed what could happen to them if they
Botulism is a rare but very serious disease. It is a extremely dangerous disease that kills more than half of the people that get it without treatment. It interests me because it is so easy to get yet so deadly and so rare. Botulism comes in many different forms so it is difficult to avoid sometimes. Here are some facts about botulism and its different forms.
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.
Throughout history, humans have passed down the concept of beauty from generation to generation. The earliest beauty treatments date back centuries to civilizations such as the Ancient Egyptians who used cosmetics to enhance themselves and maintain beauty standards of the day. Civilians of the time believed that these substances not only magnified beauty, but possessed medicinal and healing properties, which in some cases, holds true. When you press the button and fast forward to 2017, similarly the beauty industry preys on the same vain beauty standards that have encompassed people since the beginning of time. Take a trip to your local spa, salon, or crack open an issue of Vogue or Elle, and you will uncover one bizarre beauty treatment after the next. Whether it’s snails or flesh eating fish, you name it, there’s a treatment. Over the past few years, a new, bizarre cosmetic treatment has climbed the ladder of popularity on the list of aberrant procedures, Botulinum Toxin A, better known as Botox. This treatment has men and women, young and old riding the wave of detrimental injections. However, is it really salutary for us to be injecting our foreheads with Botox in such a frenzy? Society must put down the needles and say ‘no-tox’ to this paralyzing, lethal, and destructive weapon.
There are many things that happen internally and externally in our bodies every day. Exocytosis and neuromuscular junction help us understand how Botox works. Exocytosis is the process where secretory proteins are transported out of the cell (Alberts, et al., 2014). In addition to this, neurotransmitters are released. Neuromuscular Junction is a synapse that is formed between a muscle fiber and motor neuron which causes the muscle to contract (Alberts, et al., 2014). Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin. An example of this would be Botulinum neurotoxin type A. Overall, the process of exocytosis, the neuromuscular junctions, and Botox can help with muscular conditions.
When people think of new fashion trends they normally think of clothes, but the newest beauty craze that has hit the middle age market is Botox. Botox injection therapy, although not completely new, has come out swinging since being approved for use in cosmetic improvements in 2002. Botox is used to eliminate the look of aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles on the face, neck and hands. Most commonly, patients use Botox to eliminate crow’s feet around the eyes, wrinkles on the forehead, and frown or laugh lines.

Botox parties are held

The thing that is attracting more human for using antidepressants are advertising and they pay attention to them because those who advertise it try to take people’s mind with magic words and what people do, they spent a lot of money only to become worse and not better. These ads tend to emphasize that antidepressant are needed for healing depression and they only tell for what seems good, but on the other hand they don’t tell the negative effect that may occur in a man.

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.
Women in their twenties are increasingly making up more of Botox patients in America. This population can usually benefit most from Botox between the eyebrows to improve facial symmetry and prevent wrinkles that would otherwise be inevitable in years to come. When fine lines begin to show up in the
Since Botox was approved for cosmetic use in Canada in 2001, it has enabled people to get the look of plastic surgery in just a few minutes in a doctor’s office. Because it can be done so quickly and easily, it’s easy to keep treatments discreet. Even though Botox and other injectables have become more mainstream and millions of people have it done each year, it doesn’t mean you want everyone to know your secret. Unfortunately, sometimes it can result in bruising that’s a tell-tale sign of needle-assisted enhancements.
Hello Everyone. When you hear the word Botox, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Is it celebrities, people who want to look younger or maybe you just don’t care. Personally for me, when I heard the word Botox before I did my research for this informative speech, I thought of Kim Kardashian or Joan Rivers. But, Botox is more than just social media hype. Botox is a neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin, that can be used medically to treat certain types of muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles temporarily by paralyzing facial muscles. You may think that Botox used for cosmetic purposes is just for females trying to look younger, but studies have shown that the number of American men
Actress and comedian Phyllis Diller once said, "It's a good thing that beauty is only skin deep, or I'd be rotten to the core". Unfortunately, beauty can be a harm deeper than skin. People have been using beauty products and cosmetics from shampoo to plastic surgery. As we advance in technology and science, it has now come to light that these products contain extremely dangerous chemicals. As a result, people are becoming much more aware and demanding new and natural products. For this reason, Companies have reached for natural ingredients to add on to their chemically soaked products.
