Celebrity Botox, List of Men and Women, History and Warnings

Botox injections are yet another cosmetic procedure that has taken the world by storm, in an attempt to temporarily banish any and all wrinkles from the surface of the recipients face.

Botox gets its name from the neurotoxic protein, Botulinum toxin, which is produced by bacteria including Clostridium botulinum, C. argentinense, and C. butyricum.

Studied for decades, it wasn't until the late 1960's when doctors began seeking the possible therapeutic uses for botulinum toxin, and in 1980 the toxin was used to treat the eye condition known as Strabismus, marking the first ever use on humans.

Flash forward to 1989, when further studies began on the possible use of botulinum toxin (BTX-A) for the treatment of wrinkles. And in 2002, the FDA officially approved the use of Botox for cosmetic purposes, and the rest is history.

Now in the 21st century, many celebrities are partaking in the botox craze, and while eliminating fine lines is the goal, the use of botox injections will often minimize simple facial expressions, which may prove to be damning to the careers of actors and actresses, if used in excess.

Below you'll find a list of famous men and women who are believed to have received botox injections at some point in their respective careers. Including repeat users, one and done, and of course a few who are simply rumored to have tried botox.

You should look into Mrs. Sasha Montenegro, a Mexican actress of Yugoslavian descent who was beautiful and is now a monstrous ghost of what she was many years ago.
