Prolong youth and skip the Botox!

Prolong youth and skip the Botox! 

Botox is the now a common trend among young adults as a preventive anti-aging treatment, which even I dabbled with since my early 20's. Did I need it at 24? Absolutely not. But I wanted to prevent the constant wear and tear on my forehead caused by my very animated facial expressions. What it does is basically stops the muscles from contacting and creating movement, thus keeping lines and crevasses off our faces. That's amazing HOWEVER the aging process will STILL slowly take place and we will still lose our collagen and elastin as the years pass by. Meaning that you may have a nice flat forehead, but your the skin will eventually start to lose its tightness and volume in the lower face, as well as more visible pores. Botox is just a bandaid for those expression wrinkles and will wear off, so this downward spiral of always getting topped up every quarter will never end. Seriously inconvenient and expensive for the average Vancouver girl. The answer: medical skin needling, aka collagen induction therapy! If holistic + hardcore had a baby, MSN would be it. If you start this alternative holistic and safe treatment in your 20's instead of Botox, you will be literally stopping time and turning back the clock by keeping your dermal density at its thickest giving your skin optimal health and the ability to have expressions! This all natural toxic free procedure is the answer to many skin issues such as pitted acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, Pigmentation, stretch marks, pore size and building thickness in the skin. Needling is by far the most treasured and effective cumulative treatment for dermal reconstruction, without breaking the bank or making you look frozen and emotionless. If you still love your Botox, it definitely still marries well with that treatment as they work synergisticly to stop the wear and tear while still building up the integrity of the skin.
