In Oscar Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray
, the character of Dorian Gray does a deal with the devil in an attempt to preserve his youth. He trades his soul. When administered safely, Botox can be highly effective if you want to erase the signs of ageing — the marks left by every smile, laugh and frown of a life well-lived. But it comes at a cost. At best, that cost is financial. At worst, it can cause irreversible damage
to your appearance and health. As Refinery29 has previously reported
, in the hands of a novice, badly administered filler can lead to blocked blood vessels, which is a catastrophic emergency as it can result in necrosis (death of skin tissue).
