May 2, 2018

Is there a breakthrough beauty product any bigger than Botox? We think not. In this re-visiting of some serious beauty history, we go straight to the source, detailing just how Vancouver-based physician Dr. Jean Carruthers came to the eureka moment that Botox, originally used to treat eye spasms, migraines and cerebral palsy, could revolutionize the way we smooth wrinkles. Stay tuned as she recalls the LOL faces in the medical community when she stood up to suggest that the world’s deadliest toxin be injected into people’s faces, and the moment those naysayers started coming to her for their personal Bo-Bo fix.

We get to the bottom of the most Googled questions about Botox like: When should I start using Botox? (If you choose, nobody needs Botox, especially if you haven’t cracked a wrinkle yet!!) How much does it cost? Is it safe?

Dr. Carruthers spills the secrets on where Botox is going next, with some #realtalk on topical Botox creams—poised to launch in just two years—including the hidden dangers and jaw-dropping future opportunities in the medical field (our minds were legit blown!)
