Too chicken for needles? Try my answer for needle-less botox
October 8, 2015
At an age where I swear I see the enemy developing more and more on a daily basis you tend to start looking into things to take up arms and start the fight against aging. With any means necessary. In the age of botox and the amazing results it achieves, I still tend to back-paddle a bit. I have close friends who swear by it and they look absolutely phenomenal. I wish I had the guts though… After a little research I came across a product from OPTIPHI called POST TOX SERUM. Normally this serum would be perfect for post treatment enhancing, but in my case I was happy to know it works as a ‘needle-less’ botox treatment too because it prolongs cellular longevity by focussing on areas where facial muscles tend to sag. It can be used as a target treatment for lines around the eyes, frown lines, laugh lines, etc. The trick is to use it twice a day on these areas because it inhibits muscle activity that can be the cause of lines. Forming part of the brand’s Infinity Serums, this serum will be super effective in preventing of any additional lines while taking care of existing ones. It works on a cellular level to do the following:
- restore volume in the face
- makes sure cellular health is optimum by restructuring it positively
- maintains a wrinkle free effect
- facial contours are reshaped
- skin density is increased
- reduces the depth of wrinkles, therefor making them less and look less pronounced
- makes sure cellular longevity is at an optimal level
- extends the life span of cells
- boosts the energy of cells
- make sure skin is stable
The best areas to apply this serum is on the frown lines of the forehead, neck area, jawline and chin, crow’s feet and around the eye area as well as smoker’s lines and nasolabial folds. When using it I concentrated on a deep frown line I have on my forehead as well as small lines (that look huge in my mind) around my eyes. After a month of regular use I can see a definite difference, so I think prolonged use will be a complete bonus. I used the treatment for a month and the box has 4 syringe-like applicators in it that last about a week each. You can expect to pay R650 for a box of these applications and will find them at all Optiphi stockists and participating salons.
