If the idea of getting needles injected to your face makes you shiver, and you want a non-surgical anti-aging solution, then there are products that can give you almost the same results. Although, Botox is a non-permanent solution, but it does gives quick results, and that’s what makes majority of women going back to it. Botox is a purified protein taken from a bacterium that causes temporary paralysis of the facial muscles its injected to.
This temporary paralysis of facial muscles stops the wrinkles and lines from forming, but it has it’s fair share of side-effects. It can cause permanent muscle weakness, unnatural appearance, bruising, pain and infection at the side of injection. It can sure help one get rid of the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines rather quickly, but if you take care of your skin regularly and eat well, you mightn’t need an injection or a filler, at all.
If you use a skin-care product with hyaluronic acid, you might already know that this acid is very effective in plumping and moisturizing the skin, there is another key-ingredient known as aminobutyric acid that works well to plump the skin. You can have incredible results with a hyaluronic acid serum, as it promotes a youthful glow and also heals the skin.
