Botox | Fatal Conveniences™

Botox | Fatal Conveniences™

Aging is a part of life, there’s nothing we can do to stop it. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t try. People go to great lengths to thwart the physical effects of aging. One of the most popular ways to combat wrinkles these days is Botox – a toxin derived from a bacterium. Hmmm, injecting a biological toxin into your face. What could go wrong?

WELCOME TO Fatal Conveniences™. 

Botox was the most popular non-invasive medical treatment in 2020.

Guess what? It isn’t just popular here in California. It’s one of the most popular anti-aging treatments in America! And it’s not just women who opt for this procedure. Men are flocking to Botox in droves, especially over the last couple of years. This cosmetic injection is quick, relatively painless, and can smooth the look of wrinkles on your face for months at a time. But at what cost?

In this episode, 

I dive into the history of Botox, how it was created, how it works and why it’s so massively popular in our country. Derived from a bacterium, it’s made from literally the most dangerous biological toxin in the world. Sure, it’s injected by medical professionals trained to do so. But it doesn’t come without risks. I’ll go into all these possible risks and just how common they are.

Look, I’m all about embracing my crow’s feet, but I know we’re all different and have different priorities. If Botox is something you choose to do, no judgment here! I just want you to go into it with your eyes wide open. Pun intended.
