Dangerous side effects of Botox

by Sana Al Hadethee

You go to doctor for Botox to enhance youth and beauty, but you would never expect that Botox could make you look like you have had a stroke. 

When you ask doctors about its side effects, they rightly so answer quickly that these are rare occurrences and it is all down to the hands of qualified physicians, but the truth is a doctor can never know the response of each individual body reactions.

A new study from the University of Wisconsin provides evidence that injected botulinum toxin, which is in popular drug Botox, can actually jump between neurons and hit areas it wasn’t intended to treat — contradicting, the idea that (the toxins) are safe to use, they stay where they are injected, and you don’t have to worry about toxin traveling to the central nervous system.

In other studies on the brain, it did show that Botox has traveled to different areas of the brain and still show presence in the brain for up to 6 months. However, Neuroscientists have discovered that Botox can diminish experiencing emotion and works a little like an anti-depressant.

Botox is also widely used for muscle-spasm conditions. In rare cases, the toxin can spread beyond the injected areas to other parts of the body, paralyzing or weakening breathing and swallowing muscles causing a potentially fatal side effect. These signs can appear few hours after injection.

All it takes is one bad Botox experience to permanently damage your cornea or tear ducts If Botox leaks down into the eye cause dry eye or effect eye sight. People who experience usual side effects by injecting Botox such as eye drooping, puffiness, headaches, or vision changes should not inject it again because that damage can ranges from temporary to permanent.

How Does Botox Work?
Botox works by blocking nerve impulses that order your muscles to contract. This is why it is a good solution for treating some muscle spasm conditions. #Botox works the same way in the #skin. It stops skin from contracting then it can’t be wrinkled.

Wrinkles Ain’t Caused By Muscles!
Botox is not the #smartest treatment for wrinkles because wrinkles aren’t caused by muscle contractions. #Wrinkles occur when skin collagen breaks down. #Collagen is what gives your skin its elasticity. As we lose collagen, the skin becomes thinner and more creased this is how wrinkles form. So, if you really like to get rid of wrinkles permanently, you’ve got to repair your skin and encourage collagen production naturally by eating bone broth regularly and other natural methods we will cover in the future.
