Doctor’s Order: Don’t Do Botox!

My name is Alex Warner.

I graduated from Harvard University with a Doctorate in Cellular Biology.

I’ve published articles in several scientific journals and, over the past 17 years, I have had the privilege of working among some of the smartest scientists in the world. With their collaboration, I have gained invaluable knowledge relating to how our bodies age.

Recently, my team and I have had extensive discussions and brainstorming about what seems to become an increasing social issue: Botox fails.

Even if a lot of women are happy after their injections, for some unlucky ones, the results are far from what they expected.

The problem is that there’s not much any doctor can do for you after you’ve had the injection. You just have to wait for your body to wear it off.

But, if you follow my recommendations, you won’t ever do Botox.

Not only you won’t want it, but, best of all, you won’t need it.

 

Botox Is A Poison.

Its scientific name is Botulinum Toxin (BTX). It is the most acutely lethal toxin known. Because of deaths associated with its uses, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires a boxed warning stating that when locally administered the toxin may spread from the injection site to other areas of your body, causing botulism, a rare and potentially fatal illness. The disease begins with weakness, trouble seeing, feeling tired, and trouble speaking. This may then be followed by weakness of the arms, chest muscles and legs.

However, the side effects from cosmetic use generally only result from unintended paralysis of facial muscles, including partial facial paralysis, muscle weakness and trouble swallowing. These side effects are not limited to direct paralysis though, and can also include headaches, flu-like syndromes and allergic reactions.

If you experience any of those, get checked by your doctor to understand the cause.

 

Hopefully you’re lucky and these unwanted symptoms are due to your injection. Then the only thing you can do is wait.

 

Happy Or Not, The Effects Will Wear Off.

What could be an excellent news for some of you is disastrous for others: any Botox transformation will wear off with 3 to 4 months! Unwanted effects—that’s for the good news—and improvements.

You could spend over $1.200/year on Botox for just your Forehead…

For most people, the effects of Botox will last between 2 months and 6 months with the average being 4 months. Some wrinkles form because muscles bend the skin in certain places over and over again, which weakens the collagen in your skin. This creates wrinkles and creases just like bending a piece of paper or a credit card will eventually create a crease. For anti-aging, it’s best to get Botox again before the wrinkle actually comes back in order to prevent collagen damage.”

Which means that, after a single trimester, you will need more injections if you want to keep your youthful look. Knowing that smoothing of wrinkles is usually visible three days after treatment and is maximally visible two weeks following injection, you might only look younger for 8-10 weeks, then need your new fix!

 

Get Ready For The Pain.

A Botox treatment is that it can be painful in nature. The injections are usually administered with fine needles which can be painful to some patients.
But that’s not all. With almost all Botox treatments, there will be bruising around the site of the injections. This may be unsightly but will last only a day or two.

 

 

One more for the road…

As mentioned above, Botox is not a permanent treatment, meaning that it will have to be administered time and time again as it begins to fade. As time goes by, a patient may develop a natural immunity to Botox and so may have to increase the dosage of the toxin. However, too much Botox can lead to an ability to show expression…

Now you know where I stand, I promise to give you tips to look younger and rejuvenate your face slowly but surely. Stay posted…
