Why I don’t’ use botox and dermafillers? Botos is a toxic material. It lead to issues with the nervous system and the blood stream. One of the major side effects of botox is causing the facial muscles to get weak because muscles are being paralyzed by the botox injection therefore there is a lack of motion in the facial muscles. When there is no activity of facial muscles the skin droops. I want movement in my muscles, I want to be able to build these muscles. When it comes to dermafillers, it’s not that dangerous. The dermafiller contains hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally present in the human body. It is found in the highest concentration in fluids in the eyes and joints. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth”. Hyaluronic acid works by acting as a cushion and lubricant in the joints and other tissues. In addition to that, it might affect the way the body responds to injury. There are no severe adverse effects of hyaluronic acid identified yet.
Nevertheless, the way I see it, the natural methods work best. There is a perfect alternative to both botox and dermafillers and this is isometric workout. Another alternative could be a good quality hyalunoric supplementation, protein (peptide should be taken internally and externally because they send signals to the body to produce more collagen). A discipline is needed, if we do all these regularly, we don’t need plastic surgeries and botox and other procedures that are advertised largely on the market. Another technique that I am not fond of is laser. Laser stimulates collagen but the side effect doctors don’t talk about is that it depletes the adipose layer. You will gradually lose the fatty layer which will lead to sagging and the deflation of the skin. I am going to mention some excellent products that really work and that you could take to maintain your skin firm, glowing and plump and increase elasticity.

- Doctors best MSM Powder. It’s the purest form of organic natural Sulphur. NO SULFITES OR ANY OTHER CHEMICAL.
