21 Mar Botox Alternatives
Botox has been the most damaging cosmetic inflicted on men and women since the start of time.
I have been writing since 2000 on the deleterious effects of Botox , seemingly to an unresponsive void. I was 50 at the time and every time I saw a dermatologist or nurse practitioner in skin care, I was offered Botox.
As a physiotherapist, thinking this through, we all knew about the unhealthy effects of paralysis inflicted on a healthy body. So why should Botox paralyzing muscles in the face be any different? Several research articles demonstrating this point have been released, I am sure to a very unresponsive audience.
Dec 4/2010 Rafael Fortuna/ researchers University of Calgary/ Journal of Biomechanics. They found rabbits limbs injected with Botulinum toxin A experienced muscle wastage up to 50%.
In 2000, I thought there had to be something better than this to maintain a youthful appearance of the face. I developed a healthy alternative , namely The Five F.A.C.E.S. program.
It is not exercise which physiotherapists, yoga instructors etc. have purported for a very long time. This premise is wrong because the face muscles have already become stringy and tight from overuse – exercise would make this worse. It is, rather a step by step process set on relaxing the face muscles, so they can take pressure off nerve, blood supply yet still exert all the health benefits needed to maintain a younger looking face for a longer period of time.
Why is it when a person notices his/her body not as healthy or youthful looking as they would like they head for the gym; yet when their faces start to age they head for cosmetics, creams, Botox, fillers and surgery ?
