Episode 142 hosts Dr Dana Berkowitz, an Associate Professor of sociology, women and gender studies at the University of Louisiana, USA. In 2007, Dr Berkowitz published the book, 'Botox Nation: Changing The Face of America' which was an in-depth look at how injectables have become a cultural phenomenon. As a non-medical professional and having been an injectables patient herself, she interviewed hundreds of Americans to understand their motivations and reasons for seeking out treatments. We explore: - Her reasoning for writing the book - Her own motivations for having toxin treatments - How treatments and marketing have changed over the last 20 years - The pressure that women in particular now face to look younger and more beautiful - Where men fit into this equation - Why aging is perceived so negatively in western cultures - How injectable treatments are advertised in the USA - Social media and celebrity influence on the public - How injectables have become essential treatments for those who use them - Insights into how price dictates who can access treatments Follow IA on Instagram Visit the IA website Subscribe to IA on Apple Podcasts Subscribe to IA on Spotify Leave us a review on Apple podcasts Follow Q-Tox on Instagram Visit Q-Tox's website Send Dr Jake & David your podcast feedback via email or text here: www.solo.to/insideaesthetics Or DM us on Instagram: www.instagram.com/insideaestheticspodcast More about Dr Jake: www.solo.to/drjakesloane Follow David on Instagram: www.instagram.com/david_insideaesthetics
