Female BBC presenters became the recent targets of David Amess’ scathing remarks against BBC. According to the MP for Southend, the ladies of BBC are using too much BOTOX® to enhance their looks. He accused BBC of hiring women presenters based on their looks and not on their intellectual capacities. Although Amess’ comments were uncalled for, the issue of BOTOX® abuse among some people is something that is worth looking into.
How much is too much BOTOX®?
Although there are no hard and fast rules as to how much BOTOX® a person should have, you should use BOTOX®
in moderation to avoid side effects. Remember that too much of the good stuff can be bad for you.
Below are some indications that you had too much BOTOX® :
- Your forehead is frozen and your facial muscles are absolutely immobile. BOTOX® is meant to relax the facial muscles and soften deep lines. It is not meant to totally paralyze your face so you end up looking like a robot.
- Your eyebrows pop up too much giving you a perennially angry or surprised expression.
- Your eyelids feel heavy and start to look droopy after the treatment.
- Your forehead feels heavy and your eyebrows drop.
Is it safe to use homemade BOTOX® alternatives?
For safety reasons, cosmetic surgeons do not recommend homemade BOTOX® alternatives. The death of an Illinois woman, Janet Hardt, proves how dangerous it is to use homemade BOTOX® alternatives. Hardt died after injecting herself with boiled beef fat to soften the wrinkles on her face.
BOTOX® can make you look several years younger. However, the misapplication of BOTOX® can be very dangerous and is not something we recommend anyone attempt on their own or with someone who is not professionally licensed.
