Botox and Celebrities

Botox is the most common, and one of the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed to remove facial wrinkles worldwide. Not only celebrities but commoners too go for this procedure to regain a youthful appearance.


Botox is a trade name for botulinum toxin A. It is used to eradicate glabellar lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, and furrows in the forehead. It is also approved to treat medical conditions like ocular muscle spasms, problems with eye coordination, severe armpit perspiration and migraine.

How Does Botox Work?

Signals that our nerves send to the muscles are blocked by Botox. The muscle, which has been injected by Botox can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. But Botox cannot get rid of permanent wrinkles, it can just soften them. Also wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.

Alcohol should be avoided at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs should also be stopped two weeks prior to the treatment, in order to reduce bruising.

It takes about only15-20 minutes and few tiny facial injections to relax a muscle just under the wrinkle and fade it away. Significant improvement on the face is seen within 7 to 14, which can last upto 4 months. Given the time it takes and results it provides millions of people across the globe go for this treatment.

Side effects of Botox:

With the benefits come the side effects too which include:

• Blurred vision
• Dry mouth
• Fatigue
• Headaches
• Voice changes
• Speech problems
• Difficulty in breathing and swallowing, in severe cases it may result in loss of life.

• Droopy eyelids
• Double vision
• Allergic reactions
• Swelling of the mouth or throat
• Redness at the injection site
• Blinking problems
• Bleeding behind the eyeball
• Bronchitis
• Pain in the facial muscles
• Tooth problems
• Flu like symptoms, such as a fever and chills
• High blood pressure

Some of these side effects last for about a week and some may wear off in around 6 weeks. But some of these side effects are potentially serious and should be reported to a medical professional soon.

Pregnant women or women who are breast feeding, alongwith people who are taking antibiotics are recommended not to use Botox, as they have increased risk of adverse reactions.

Before going for this treatment a proper consultation with a reputed doctor is a must.

  3. I remember reading about Amir Khan getting a botox done,mostly for his role in 3 idiots since he had to play a college student plus he went on some special diet..well no doubt all that completely paid off..look at the before and after pics,more inspiring than any other actress on the list 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

  4. Most important RAKHI SAWANT, in one of the reality show (Rakhi ka swayamwar ) she was given over-does of botox and ws not able to laugh….. It was making her look uglier than before

  5. I think the worst is Sridevi. Saw her on TV in some awards program and she looked terrible. her nose job is miserable and she could not even talk properly.

    I think the best ones are Shilpa shetty (not in this list), Rekha, karisma kapoor and Gauri khan
