Thank goodness for Acmella Oleracea - a magic skincare ingredient that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles without a needle in sight.
You’ve probably heard of botox, but do you really know about this seemingly miraculous treatment for wrinkles and about the natural alternatives?
Fear not, we’ve got all the answers right here. So, let’s delve in!
What is botox?
It’s a popular cosmetic injection derived from ‘botulin’. Botox is used to cosmetically reduce the appearance or remove wrinkles by temporarily paralysing facial muscles. This makes lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, less obvious. It is also used medically to treat certain muscular conditions by blocking the nerve signals to certain muscles.
Is botox safe you may ask?
The substance used in botox is related to a naturally occurring poison that which can occasionally be found at high levels in bad meat. High levels have the ability to paralyse and even kill! Botox can be a safe treatment if undertaken by a qualified medical professional. It’s always important and highly advised to have a face to face consultancy to ensure you are comfortable with the procedure and practitioner.
Any side effects?
There can be some occasional light bruising and redness around the area of injection, although this shouldn’t last long. The effects are not permanent, the desired effect cannot be guaranteed. It is good to be aware that botox injections can be very expensive and if expectations are not met, you might want to reconsider your options.
Is there a natural, non-invasive alternative?
