There are many ethical issues with the cosmetic uses of Botulinum Toxin. The most prominent of these would be that, by taking Botox, you are injecting a toxin into your body, a toxin that can kill in very small amounts. Botox Injections can pretty much be compared to Chemotherapy, because you are hurting your body in tiny amounts. In Chemotherapy, the powerful drugs you take kill cancer, but also hurt your body, which is why many cancer patients lose their hair. However, Botox - when used for cosmetic reasons - is used to make yourself prettier, fairer-skinned, thinner, or all around more perfect. I think that using Botox Injections for weight loss or other cosmetic reasons is unethical because toxins should never be put into a human body. The other ethical issue with Botulinum Toxin is that it doesn't always work. Botox only helps temporarily, and even when it does work, it doesn't work well for everone. When Botox fails, especially when used for cosmetic reasons, it has terrible results. Botox has been used by many people, but it often gives them swollen lips or forehead, and results in bright red rashes. Some of the images are not, lets just say, appealing, so I did not show any on here, but simply searching "Botox Gone Wrong" on Google Images will show what happens when Botox doesn't work.
