Does BOTOX really cause deaths?

BOTOX® Injections (Botulinum Toxin A)

What is Botox?

BOTOX® is the commercial tradename for Botulinum Toxin Type A.

Botulinum Toxin is derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.

When injected into muscles, Botulinum Toxin has a local effect. It blocks transmission between the nerve endings and muscle fibres around the injection site to cause weakness of the nearby muscle.

What is Botox used for?

Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. It is typically used in people aged 18 to 65.

Botox works by blocking nerve transmission to temporarily reduce the contractions of the facial muscles that cause frown lines.

It has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles, and botox injections are becoming increasingly popular.

Who can have Botox treatment?

Your doctor will decide if you can have cosmetic treatment with botox.

Before starting treatment, tell your doctor if you have any disorders that affect your nerves and muscles, if you are breastfeeding, or if you are planning to become pregnant soon.

The Botox injection procedure

Your doctor will administer several tiny injections of botox directly into the muscles of your face. Prior to injection, your doctor will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area.

The entire botox injection procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and does not require anaesthesia. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.

After the injection

You should notice an improvement in your frown lines within 3 to 7 days, the effects of which can last up to 4 months. However, results may vary.

After a period of time, your frown lines will begin to reappear as the effects of botox wear off.

How often can Botox injections be given?

You can receive botox injections every 4 months.

With repeated treatments, thinning of the muscles occurs, which produces longer lasting results.

How much does Botox treatment cost?

Each treatment costs around £200.

Possible side-effects of Botox

- headache
- flu-like symptoms
- temporary eyelid droop
- nausea
- squint/double vision
- twitching of the eye
- facial pain
- redness at the injection site
- muscle weakness

Cautions/contra-indications

Do not have botox treatment if you:

- have an infection where botox will be injected
- are allergic to any of the ingredients
- are pregnant or think you might be pregnant
- have a neurological disorder (eg. Myasthenia Gravis)

There are also a number of medicines that may interact with botox (eg. quinidine, some antibiotics). It is important to tell your doctor if you are taking any medication.

Botulinum toxin is the most poisonous substance known. A single gram of crystalline toxin, evenly dispersed and inhaled, would kill more than 1 million people, although technical factors would make such dissemination difficult. The basis of the phenomenal potency of botulinum toxin is enzymatic; the toxin is a zinc proteinase that cleaves 1 or more of the fusion proteins by which neuronal vesicles release acetylcholine into the neuromuscular junction.

There are at least 16 known deaths due to the botulinum toxin spread inside the body of those injected with it. And over 87 people have been hospitalized due to Botox injections resulting in the spread of botulinum toxin throughout their bodies.

So, Wouldn’t It Be A Smarter Way To Look Younger Using Safe Proven Products?
Think of the skin nourishing properties of Vitamin E oil. Spread over your skin.

Think of using traditional products like JAJA Pearl Powder™

Think of luxurious milk baths.

Think of stopping smoking if you are a smoker.

Think of getting better nutrition.

Think of eating or drinking foods and supplements with high levels of anti-oxidants that stop free radicals from aging your skin and body. Supplements like Chocodant™ for instance.

Stay away from the poisons and harmful substances like Botox.

Sure those bio-weapons can stop wrinkles, but at what cost to your health?
