Botox injections are the fastest growing cosmetic procedure and considered as the ultimate fountain of eternal youth. Though considered a dangerous neurotoxin, when injected in miniscule amounts, it can treat several medical conditions.

"A thing of beauty is a joy for ever,
Its loveliness increases, it will never
Pass into nothingness"
- Wrote John Keats in his epic poem 'Endymion'.

But a lot of ordinary mortals, whose ideas of romanticism do not match the poet's, beg to disagree.


Socrates could not have been more apt when he said that 'Beauty is a short-lived tyranny', as we well know that beauty and youth go hand-in-hand.

Although with the changing trends, the concept of inner beauty and grace is fast catching up giving age a fair chance, retaining or regaining skin- deep beauty in all its youthful glory is too tempting for those in the twilight zone of their youth. This is where cosmetic procedures have stepped in to cater to the needy, and Botox is one such youth-enhancing procedure.

"Always remember that true beauty comes from within - from within bottles, jars, compacts, and tubes"- Peter's Almanac

THE SCIENCE POSTED HERE IS WRONG: the botulinum toxin cleaves the SNARE complex and allows for the vesicle containing the neurotransmitter ACh to be unable to diffuse through Ca2+ cannels. when the SNARE complex is cleved the vesicle cannot bind to the SNAP-25 and thus ACh cannot be released and the muscle cannot react to the signal from the nerve.

Botox can be used for enlarged prostate glands; for especially those who are high risk for surgery.
