Botox

Joans River, a good Botox?

Cat woman, bad Botox? They both might be a very nice ladies. I do not know them. In my blog....I am talking about only Botox, nothing more than that! They might be a wonderful people.

Botox, I like the sound! (Bo-Tok)? I have some friends who are getting Botox injection. They look good! They look young and the restless...beautiful! But....I had seen some got the result of C- also. Well...Thailand is also one of the most famous cosmetic surgery country. Over all, they did a good job here. People around the world come to Bangkok to do what ever they need to do or wish to do.

I am a woman...yes! I do like to be beautiful but can't take the pain is my problem. I also know that NO pin, No gain! I think about botox all over my body which is needed, getting my papaya enlargement, my face lift, and butt lift...what more??. Well woman after 40+ we all need to be lifted everywhere unless you are born with the marvelous gene...like Tina Tunner?? Wooooooooo what a woman!!! Still very hot at 60+. I think she might have some job but not sure.

Two weeks ago, I read about Botox in the Nation Newspaper of Bangkok. One of the young Actor suing someone for the bad result of Botox. His photo show "Drooping Eyelid". Poor thing need to be lived with Droopy Eyelid for 3 to 4 months. That's my worry, how about living with Droopy nose for 4 months??

I gathered that Botox was originally treatment for crossed eyes, cervical dystonia, excessive blinking, anal fissure, excessive salivation and migraine.....more.

My thinking is "Botox".....pleasing yourself or pleasing others?? If this is pleasing to others...won't last. In this world, yes.... the first impression is the look but it won't last. I have seen beautiful people but attitude is suck! If you have both, Botox face and nice attitude, this is the BEST!!
Here some of my research!

Botulinum toxin
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Links to deaths

In September 2005, a paper published in the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology reported from the FDA saying that use of Botox has resulted in 28 deaths between 1989 and 2003, though none were attributed to cosmetic use.

On February 8, 2008, the FDA announced that Botox has "been linked in some cases to adverse reactions, including respiratory failure and death, following treatment of a variety of conditions using a wide range of doses," due to its ability to spread to areas distant to the site of the injection.

In January 2009, the Canadian government warned that botox can have the adverse effect of spreading to other parts of the body which could cause muscle weakness, swallowing difficulties, pneumonia, speech disorders and breathing problemsSeveral cases of death have been linked to the use of fake Botox.]


Side effects

Side effects can be predicted from the mode of action (muscle paralysis) and chemical structure (protein) of the molecule, resulting broadly speaking in two major areas of side effects: paralysis of the wrong muscle group and allergic reaction. Bruising at the site of injection is a side effect not of the toxin, but rather the mode of administration. In cosmetic use, this means that the client will complain of inappropriate facial expression such as drooping eyelid, uneven smile, loss of ability to close the eye. This will wear off in around 6 weeks. Bruising is prevented by the clinician applying pressure to the injection site, but may still occur, and will last around 7 - 10 days. When injecting the masseter muscle of the jaw, loss of muscle function will result in a loss or reduction of power to chew solid foods. All cosmetic treatments are of limited duration, and can be as short a period as six weeks, but usually one sees with an effective period of between 3 and 8 months. At the extremely low doses used medicinally, botulinum toxin has a very low degree of toxicity.

Reported adverse events from cosmetic use includes headaches, focal facial paralysis, muscle weakness, dysphagia, flu-like syndromes, and allergic reactions.

There has been a petition by Public Citizen to the FDA requesting regulatory action concerning the possible spread of botulinum toxin (Botox, Myobloc) from the site of injection to other parts of the body (HRG Publication #1834).
