10 Years of Botox: a History
Botox Cosmetic celebrated turning 10 years old yesterday, and what a difference a decade has made.

So what's happened with the world's favourite filler in the past 10 years? A whole lot, as it turns out. Celebrities have denied (and then admitted) using the stuff, and it's been used for conditions as diverse as sweaty feet and migraines. See Botox's biggest milestones now.
