Botox Side Effects Can Leave You Devastated

Botox side effects can be quite debilitating, and more and more people are coming to realize that this and other invasive treatments may not be the best solution to combat the aging process. In fact, you may be better off trying some of the safer, less invasive alternatives.

What are the side effects of Botox?

There are very serious risks associated with this procedure that should make you think twice before undergoing treatment.

One of the most serious potential adverse reactions is permanent damage to your face as well as your general health. We've heard about many cases where the procedure has gone wrong, leaving the patient in worse shape than they were before the procedure.

Other potential problems include droopy eyelids, bruising, muscle weakness, dizziness and headaches. It could also lead to fine lines and wrinkles in other areas of the face. 

Adding to the many problems of Botox injections is the fact that you have to be injected on a regular basis (every couple of months) to maintain any results, and this can be extremely costly to you. 

Just a few years ago, the FDA ordered that black box warning labels (the FDA's strongest warning) be added to the drug alerting people to the potential dangers. These new labels explain that Botox can spread from the point of injection to the rest of the body, carrying a risk of problems including difficulty breathing or swallowing.

This new acton by the FDA may have been in response to letters from the public advocacy group called Public Citizen, which wrote to the FDA about reports it had received of 180 health problems and 16 deaths tied to the injections, and another 225 cases where the drug had spread to the rest of the body from the point of injection.

Are there Botox alternatives?

Due to the many serious potential health risks and the extremely high cost of continued injections, we believe you are much better off with natural, safe Botox alternatives.

We have extensively researched several dozen anti aging and anti wrinkle products on the market over the past few months. We have discovered one product line that we can confidently recommend.

It is called Xtend Life Skincare and it provides all of the anti-wrinkle benefits without the side effects.

It is an all-natural product line that reduces wrinkles and age spots, exfoliates dead skin and regenerates new skin cells. 

Will it work as well or as quickly as injections? Probably not. But the gradual effects will be quite significant, and you don't have to worry about anything going wrong...nor do you have to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on something that will likely make you look like "plastic woman".

The bottom line is although the injections can certainly smooth out wrinkles temporarily, the unnatural look that results hardly gives you the youthful appearance you are seeking. In most cases, it simply makes you look like an older person without forehead wrinkles, which is just an unnatural way to look.

Take a look at anyone who you know who has had Botox...do they look good? Take 100 people who have had a lot of injections....95 of them will look awful. It's just a fact.

So if you really want to eliminate wrinkles, skip the Botox and at least try a natural solution first to see if it works for you. If not, you can always opt for the injections afterwards...you've got nothing to lose.
