Botox, which is widely used in cosmetology to preserve youthful skin, is harmful to the human body. Researchers from the University of Wisconsin (USA) claim that it acts on the central nervous system and causes the formation of clots in blood vessels.
The results of the study found that Botox interacts with various organic substances, alters their properties. In particular, it is noted that the substances becomes thinner, and penetrate into the bloodstream, travel throughout the body. Thus, it can lead to formation of thrombuses in the vascular system, what, in turn, in some cases is leading to death.
Botox itself is a fairly toxic compound. For example, an injection of 160 ng of this substance often leads to negative consequences (including death), even in people weighing more than 80 kg. In this connection, the scientists warn from conducting anti-aging injections alone or without the involvement of a qualified specialist. The head of a group of scientists Edwin Chapman also stated about the possible negative impact of the substance on the central nervous system. Despite the lack of research carried out in this area, it is also raises questions about whether botox injection is needed for human. The consequences of its injection will depend not only on the body weight, but also the place of its introduction.
Botox has a lot of contraindications, including:
- number of severe and chronic diseases
- infectious diseases
- poor blood clotting
- age more than 60 and less than 35 years.
Most complications after injections are connected with neglecting of the above contraindications by doctors and patients.
