I've been down with the flu myself for most of this week. It did make me look different, but I only wish taut, extra-pouty lips had been my lot, instead of crappy skin and rheumy eyes. I can totally understand Kim's point about not having makeup on, but have you ever gotten a plumped-up pout from falling ill? Or are Kardashian illnesses, like so many other things about the clan, just beyond the ken of mere mortals? If you haven't seen the video people are talking about, just keep reading.
Apparently new, however, are findings indicating that those effects aren't just limited to the injection site. It's not really shocking that this is the case; it seems hard to believe that a neurotoxin that spreads easily throughout muscles would stay put in one tiny section of your body, anyway. It's also not clear just how much of this wastage occurs in humans — the experiment in question was conducted on a small number of rabbits who received multiple injections over six months. Still, not exactly comforting news for injectables fans. Does this story put you off the 'tox, or would you still feel safe using it?

Supposedly, your body reacts to the injections by producing a bunch of collagen, thereby making your face appear fuller over time. Results take three weeks to develop and last for up to 18 months, and the procedure costs about $1,100. Not for me, but I can see it creating a lot of interest. What do you think?
