They found that Botox's active ingredient, called Botulinum Neurotoxin Type A, into the whisker muscles of rats. Three days later, they found remnants of a protein broken down by the toxin in part of the brain stem. Later signs of the toxin showed up in their brains. They found that it also moved to a part of the brain that controls long-term memory, spatial navigation, & eye-head coordination.

Spokesperson for allergen, the maker of Botox, has said that aforesaid study is inconclusive. It contradicts previous research that found the product safe. It's also important to note that the study was conducted on lab rats, not on humans. Saying that the subject needs more research, California plastic surgeon, Dr. Edward Domanskis said, "I sort of doubt that in the doses that we use, which are small & we are injecting locally, that it’s going to travel to those areas. Although I 've seen where you inject it into the glabellar area & you can get problems with ptosis or drooping of the lid.”

Meanwhile, the FDA is studying the reports of illnesses in people of all ages who used the drugs for a variety of conditions, including at least one hospitalization of a woman given Botox for forehead wrinkles.
