How Much Do You Know About Botox?


It's only been six years since the FDA approved Botox for cosmetic purposes, but considering the fact that Americans spent $1.2 billion on it last year alone, it's not going away anytime soon. People usually have strong opinions of Botox — some think it's a godsend, while others think it's feeding a youth-obsessed culture — but they often have just as many questions. Think you know all about this drug? Take my quiz to find out.

My mother had Botox injections for years - to alleviate a facial spasm that caused the side of her face to contract - and one of her eyes to (mostly) stay shut. With Botox - she looked more like a stroke victim (one side of her face relaxed), but at least she had depth of vision. Tidbit: it was an ill-concealed secret that teh office nurses cabbaged onto opened vials... they were very smooth-faced.

So after it loses its effect after a couple of months, where does the botulism toxins go?

Having seen the effects of botulism on animals and babies, I'm not a huge fan of injecting ANY form of the toxin into healthy people for purely superficial purposes.

100% Booyah. And I'm still 100% sure I won't be using this for vanity's sake.

I get botox in my underarms. I don't plan on doing it for life, but it's one of the best things I could've done for myself.

I read an interesting stat recently that almost 75% of botox injections are done for OTHER reasons besides vanity/wrinkles. It helps palsy and stroke victims, incontinence, overactive sweat glands, migraine and tension headache sufferers - and these are just the most accepted medical uses - they are testing every day different and new ways this versatile drug can help people. Because of that it shocks me to see people bash it right away.

4/5 I doubt I would ever consent to be injected with botox, however I might enduldge in another appearance enhancing procedure so I guess I can't really knock those who do .... although I might anyway

I have to say I'm one of the ones who doesn't care for it and I don't really see why someone would want to have that injected into themselves while pregnant, especially considering that it's a mild form of a toxin.
