According to NewsCore, the former eye doctor who discovered the wrinkle-reducing properties of Botox missed out on a fortune after she and her dermatologist husband failed to patent the anti-ageing procedure they discovered in Canada.
Dr. Jean Carruthers’ eureka moment came in 1987 when she spotted that the injections she used to stop eye spasms also smoothed facial lines.
Her British-born husband Dr. Alastair Carruthers then tested the toxin on the couple’s receptionist. “We had only to see her to say, ‘Oh, this does work.’ You could see a huge difference,” said Jean Carruthers, 61.
The couple wrote a paper on their findings four years later – and Botox is now the world’s most popular cosmetic procedure.
But the Carruthers, who run a cosmetic surgery clinic in Vancouver, Canada, never patented their work and missed out on fame, fortune and the thanks of younger-looking people worldwide.
