The Science of Botox

I rarely look at the stats on the visits to my website, but one day a few months ago, I discovered that other than the front page, my most visited page is The Science of Beauty page. I created it more as a second thought, really. Since it seems that people are curious about what scientists might have to say about beauty and beauty products, I decided to up my repertoire of presentations in that regard. My "Chemistry of Mascara" video is one of the most viewed. In response to this demand I've made a video about the science behind Botox. I discuss the bacteria that makes the very potent neurotoxin and how it affects the body and then the medical and cosmetic usese behind it. The presentation is a screen captured powerpoint presentation with my voice narration composed primarily of images. Thanks to the youtube 10 minute rule, I had to break this video up into several portions in order to make it easier to upload.

The tutorial is about 25 minutes long in its entirety. Think of it, half of a typical lecture. You're getting off easy.

 


I have plans in the future for discussing the science of tanning and sunscreens. The body is so elegant and incredible in the way it has designed self protecting and healing mechanisms. I am continually in awe! I hope to still create on comparing quick dry vs. long wearing nail polish. In that one, I have plans to set something on fire. It should be quite exciting. That all being said, I hope you will be patient until I can put those together.

I conducted another poll on twitter last week, and am still working on the write-up of the results. I would like to express my gratitude to those who contributed their opinion on the "underdogs of science", people who were overlooked for their discoveries. An easy trend that appeared is that the so called "underdogs" were either of the wrong class or gender and therefore their findings were ignored. It could also have been that their findings were so unique and ahead of their time that they could not be accepted at the time.

In the meantime, I am working on my Science Online presentations and completing other little tasks to prepare for the NEXT semester which begins immediately upon my arrival back from the conference in January!

Until next time,

Kindly,

Joanne
