Botox is a routine tool used in the cosmetic industry that has become increasingly popular. Is it a healthy medical procedure? What was it initially discovered for, and how has it developed over time? Dr. Eugene M. Helveston, a medical professional with many years of experience, sits down to enlighten us…

Dr. Helveston is an emeritus professor of ophthalmology, the founder of the section of Pediatric Ophthalmology, and the former Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at Indiana University School of Medicine. In January of 2024, he released Death to Beauty: The Transformative History of Botox, a book that walks readers through the intricate history of how the world's deadliest toxin (starting as a treatment for crossed eyes) became a routine tool for the cosmetic industry.

In this discussion, we cover:

  • How botox was used during its initial treatments.
  • What the primary toxin in botox is, and how it interacts with human cells.
  • How the cosmetic applications for botox were discovered and utilized.

If you are ready to rethink success, beauty, and deadly bacteria, this podcast is certainly for you. Tune in now to broaden your perspective!
