What Do These Three Celebs Have In Common?

Other than the fact that they are all successful and talented women in their own right, they’ve all confessed and regretted using Botox before. Having made the decision to use such procedures at a young age, they acknowledged the pressure to look young and how these choices have had consequences later in their life. “I was trying so hard to keep up, and that actually made things worse,” said Cox.

The topic of Botox, fillers, and plastic surgery is definitely one that brings in a heavily divided crowd. The arguments for and against Botox are further accentuated by factors such as age, class, and even career. When is the “appropriate” age to get Botox? Who should be getting it and who shouldn’t? Halle Berry previously stated, “I’m not going to preach about whether it is good or bad. What I don’t agree with is young people doing it.”


As a company, OIA is not promoting or denouncing the use of Botox. We believe that in the end, it is an individual’s choice to choose what to do with one’s body. However, as a company that is rooted in both transparency and innovation, we believe that we share responsibility in educating the public about the consequences of such a decision, and what the alternatives are if any.

The question we tackle is what exactly about Botox is bad?

There are a variety of directions we can take with that question from the social and cultural effects such procedures have to how it can affect mental health. We focus more so on the direct health effects of Botox and how it can affect the body in both the short and long term.


Botox works via injection of small doses of botulinum toxin type A, the same toxin that causes botulism in large doses, to inhibit a neurological response. This inhibition prevents muscles from contracting, affecting the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

In the short run, some people experience side effects such as swelling, headaches, and in some cases droopy eyes and “crooked” smiles. In rare cases, botulism-like symptoms can appear. In the long run, the effects vary, but extended usage has been shown to exhibit effects such as difficulty swallowing, heart palpitations, general weakness in the body, nausea, and drooping. As the toxin affects the nervous system, the consequences can be far more detrimental than what can be observed at the moment.

It's undeniable that society places pressure on women to act, look, and be a certain way.

And at times, these decisions come at the cost of women's’ health. In an ideal situation, these pressures would not exist, but sadly, women are placed in a difficult predicament.

Naturally, Botox is a far more “effortless” quick-fix to concerns with appearance as all you have to do is inject a needle for immediate results. But if you choose to alter your appearance, OIA Skin pushes for a healthy route. A balanced diet, exercise, and continued attention to the skin including OIA Anti-Wrinkles Patches will do wonders, but without the regrets.
