Botox Backlash: It GIVES You Wrinkles

Uh-oh, we're in trouble. Something's come along and it's burst our (Botox) bubble. Yeah, yeah. Experts, one in particular, are now saying that Botox can in fact give you wrinkles. According to the Daily Mail, Dr David Becker, Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, wrote in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology that "Paralysis of a set of muscles might lead to recruitment of other muscle groups in an attempt to reproduce the conditioned activity being blocked, resulting in more prominent muscle activity in adjacent regions," which basically means, areas of the face that haven't been treated with Botox are working twice as hard to replicate facial movements that have, in essence, been 'frozen,' therefore increasing the likelihood of wrinkles cropping up in those areas, like the bridge of the nose. Its seems you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. Ironic, huh?
