Promotion of cosmetic botulinum toxin A frowned upon
This is an issue that has me just a little on the nervous side. I have seen numerous ads for salons offering Botox treatments. Salons, mind you. Keep in mind that botulinum toxin is one of the most potent toxins on the planet, and one thimbleful is plenty to wipe out the entire planet. Can’t see myself jumping in line to have the stuff injected just centimeters from my brain by someone who also cuts hair and does nails….(which, ironically, I wouldn’t trust to most PCPs…).
