The promise of smooth skin and the ability to look 10 years younger is pretty tempting for women and men who want to reverse the signs of aging. If you’re looking to treat and prevent wrinkles, a lot of people turn to Botox. In 2020, there were over 4.4 million Botox procedures performed in the United States.(1) For those that have not heard of Botox, they are injections that use a toxin to prevent muscles from moving for a limited time. They do not come without potential side effects, some even dangerous. Instead, try opting for a healthier alternative such as Age Defy which can help you build your glow from the inside out with our precise formula.
Botox is more of a preventative than a restorative treatment. Its active ingredient freezes facial muscles to keep you from moving them in ways that deepen lines and wrinkles. Some people use it to treat migraines.(2) Doctors also say that the earlier you get Botox, the more preventative its effects. It is not a cheap treatment either, especially since it needs to be done fairly often as Botox’s effects are only temporary. Everyone is different, but you can expect its effects to wear off in three to four months. It doesn’t come without potential serious side effects, some requiring medical attention, including difficulty with breathing and swallowing. Less serious side effects include muscle weakness, chills and body aches, fever, headaches, and more. Other serious long term side effects include antibody development.(3) According to the warning label, “Botox products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects.”
There are much safer options to aging beautifully, no needles necessary. Using a supplement focusing on skin health is a great place to start. Age Defy is loaded with vitamins and precursors aimed at improving skin, hair and nail health. As you age, the most important proteins in your skin, collagen and elastin, begin to break down. Your body also stops producing these proteins as easily as you get older. Age Defy works to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin by improving the health of your skin cells and helping to produce more crucial proteins like collagen. Some vitamins that you’ll find in our formula are essential for cell structure and tissue strength, like zinc. Vitamin A increases cell reproduction and stimulates collagen production; vitamin C helps prevent damage to cells, thus facilitating the production of elastin and collagen.(4) Age Defy contains 15 mg of zinc, 1,500 mcg of vitamin A and 60 mg of vitamin C.
You’ll find 100 mg of hyaluronic acid in Age Defy. It is one of the best ingredients for clear, healthy skin. It has strong moisture retaining properties, and can be used internally and topically. (5) Our formula also contains 200 mg of turmeric. Turmeric contains curcumin, which gives it a distinct yellow color and flavor. Curcumin is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and antioxidant effects; antioxidants fight free radicals, which cause aging.(6)
In addition to adding Age Defy to your routine, you want to be sure you are eating a balanced healthy diet full of vitamins and nutrients. Balanced nutrition is essential not only to prevent chronic disease, cancer and diabetes, but to maintain health and ensure normal functions.(7)
Remember, supplements should be “supplemental” to a healthy, nutrient dense diet. However, Age Defy can give your diet the boost of vitamins it needs to help maintain radiant skin. Which could be a better and safer option than Botox.
