The Unhealthy Trend of Fixing Self-Esteem with Botox

Oh, self-esteem! The two words both have a significant meaning but now, have changed its roots to something different, new and may be dangerous. The meaning of this word is different for everyone, for some, it can come with the basics like fancy food and sleep whereas, for some it may be a warm bubble bath or study, while for many others it can be something that incorporates an injection or syringe of Botulinum Toxin into their faces.

Botulinum Toxin, also known as the Botox, is a purified neurotoxin which is majorly responsible for the muscle-paralyzing and can also create a life-threatening condition due to the rare poisoning caused by Botulinum. This dangerous toxin along with the injectable for the face-freezing, plumping, reducing of the fine lines and wrinkles has now officially taken over the so-called self-care space.

These Botox treatments that lead to diminishing of fine lines and wrinkles and leading to overall wellness are becoming a greater part of the self-esteem conversation. People said that looking young and fresh directly boosts their confidence and self-esteem. But even though the Big B sounds like young beauty and happy health there is something disadvantageous about the whole procedure and leads to a person’s well-being into a doubt. It is well said that “not everything that makes a person feel good about themselves at the moment counts as an act of wellness.” For example, cyber bullying or binging while scrolling down the social media or sitting over a seat due to societal insecurities for a temporary fix with various disadvantages over a period of time. 

But the scenario of today’s world is different. Many people across the globe believe that beauty is extremely important (which it is) and for that, they think various treatments like Botox injectables are the key. They also thought that self-esteem and beauty go hand in hand. But here is something for all those believers who consider Botox as self-care. Read the understated cons of Botox and see how this trend of fixing self-esteem actually takes you to the path of self-destruction.”
