Injection-Like Products: A Natural Alternative to Botox
In recent years, the popularity and availability of fillers and Botox has exploded. They provide superior anti-aging help to the face. However, not everyone wants to deal with needles, and fillers and Botox can be quite pricey. But at the same time, many anti-aging skincare products don’t give the same results. Luckily, there are some skincare products that are a nice middle ground between fillers (or Botox) and products that only provide minimal help. Let’s learn more about alternatives to Botox and fillers.
Ingredients that provide injection-like results
If you want injection-like results, you can’t use just any products, and you can’t use just any ingredients. Most creams and other products are able to help with signs of aging to some extent, but for intense results, you need certain rich ingredients that will tackle stubborn fine lines and wrinkles. Here are a few examples of ingredients that, in the right quantities, can provide amazing results:
Squalane: This is an intensely hydrating ingredient. Squalene, its precursor, is actually a component of vernix, a coating that keeps babies’ skin protected and moisturized in the womb. Squalane in skincare products is often derived from plants, making it vegan-friendly. It hydrates, makes skin more elastic, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen peptides: Collagen helps provide structure to the skin. The body naturally produces it, but as the body ages, production slows down. Supplementing it topically can help replenish the skin’s stores and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging.
Mafane: Mafane, or amcella alba, is a plant with a Botox-like effect on skin. It is a sort of anesthetic, and like Botox, it helps limit movement in the areas in which it is placed to prevent dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that happen with movement) from becoming static wrinkles (wrinkles that are present even when the face is at rest).
Hyaluronic acid: This helps deeply hydrate the skin. Hydration is important to anti-aging… Dry skin is unhealthy skin, and it practically magnifies imperfections and signs of aging. Hydration helps to plump skin.
Argireline: Another product that works like Botox, argireline inhibits muscle contraction. This means that skin folds less with expressions,, and therefore wrinkles show less and you delay the appearance of more permanent wrinkles.
