Botox: The Elixir of Youth

Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?

Why would it be a strange idea that us, as human beings, seek for beauty and youth when that was being taught to us for centuries? Fairy tales, cartoons, movies and all the other fictions imbue us with the image of ‘beauty’. Even if it differs for individuals, we all do have an idea in our minds. Some of us like long, straight hair while some may have a liking in curly hair, but we have a common concern as all the people around the world which is ‘looking young and beautiful’.

As we know, aging is the process of becoming older, and there’s nothing to stop it or reverse it, but it could be postponed. Thanks to a Belgian scientist named Emile Pierre van Ermengem, who discovered Clostridium botulinum while following a botulism outbreak in Belgium, we have a chance to get rid of the fine lines come with age. Of course, she did not discover this toxin to defy aging, but her discovery lighted the way for other scientists.

Botulinum toxin was started being used to treat crossed eyes in 1970s. While it was being tested on monkeys, researchers found out that botulinum toxin reduced wrinkles in the glabella, which is the skin between the eyebrows and above the nose. Even if we do not support animal testing as Good Look team, the discovery of the toxin’s cosmetic applications made our dreams come true.

If you are asking the question ‘But how does it work?’, here is your answer.

Basically, this toxin interferes with nerve signals to prevent muscle contraction. When the muscles are paralyzed, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines are temporarily diminished. Botox is most used to treat glabellar lines, crow’s feet (around the eyes), and forehead creases. The results of this treatment tend to be more successful when started getting injections from early ages, since the lines get deeper and deeper with age, so do not wait, as it can be too late.

If you are reading this, please keep in mind that you are not the only one who is into Botox!  An estimated 11 million people worldwide have used Botox, which makes it one of the most common nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, but there is something not to be forgotten that the injections should be applied by trained and experienced health care professionals (+90 549 108 0 800 ) in a sterile, well-equipped medical facility! If not, you may face some unwanted effects.
