David Amess, claims ladies of BBC are using too much BOTOX® to enhance their looks: How much is too much?

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.

Fact about BOTOX®

BOTOX® is a temporary nonsurgical treatment for frown lines, forehead furrows, “crow’s feet,” and lines and wrinkles of the lower face. The muscles that respond best to treatment are those that contract during facial expressions. Other more sophisticated areas of the face that respond well to BOTOX® treatment include those around the mouth, nose, cheeks and neck. These areas require a surgeon/injector with greater experience.
