Safe Alternatives to Botox Poison

Sep 5, 2008
Those of you looking into botox treatments may wonder if there are safe alternatives to botox treatments. As you age the lines and wrinkles seem to multiply on your face and there's nothing that will make you look older faster than those wrinkles. With botox being so popular recently it's no wonder that as soon as we see wrinkles we think of botox as a solution. It's true that botox can be one safe and effective way to remove wrinkles and lines from our faces, but you should take the time to look into other ways to take care of those wrinkles.

You should know before you get botox injections that it is a toxic substance. Botox is short for 'botulism poisoning' which is a type of food poisoning that is capable of causing severe illness and even death. When botulism is detected the person affected needs immediate medical attention and health officials frequently get involved to contain any potential outbreak. Botulism is not something to take lightly.

Botox is made from the same bacteria that causes botulism and it works by paralyzing the muscles that it's injected into. A small amount of diluted botox is injected directly into the facial muscles causing them to weaken and thus making the skin over top of them smooth out. Once the skin smoothes, then the wrinkles and lines disappear.

It's a very extreme solution to a simple problem and you should know that there are other ways that are equally effective and safer than botox. Don't get me wrong, botox does work wonders, however it still presents risks and the treatment needs to be repeated every 3-6 months making it expensive as well. Some people have developed cardiovascular problems from botox and some even experience a permanent loss of sensation in areas that have been injected with botox frequently. While botox is considered very safe it still poses some risks.

An alternative to these injections is a quality botox cream or anti aging cream. These creams are also pretty expensive, but they pose none of the risks you'll get with botox. LifeCell and Revitol are two botox creams that are regarded quite highly. Plus you'll find that the botox creams can remove some wrinkles that are untreatable by botox such as lines from sun damage.

Do your homework about wrinkle removal and you'll find there are some alternatives to botox injections. Botox creams and anti aging creams can be a safe effective way to get the same results and keep a smooth youthful looking face. Botox injections may be your first thought, but it may not be the best solution.
