3 Alternatives To Botox And Other Salon Treatments

It’s time to face the facts: Botox and other salon treatments can be expensive, time-consuming and dangerous. Yes, technology is rapidly improving and skin-rejuvenation treatments are becoming more accessible than ever before. These treatments can be empowering for some women and unappealing to others. If you want to make your skin look and feel younger but you aren’t willing or ready to try Botox and other salon treatments, then today’s blog is for you.

We’ll delve into effective alternatives to these treatments, which of course include the iderma® Youth Restoring Masque. Read on to learn how to take your skin care into your own hands — instead of sacrificing your time and money to have injections.

Rejuvenating Facial Creams

There are collagen anti-aging creams, antioxidant creams and many others on the market that claim to treat wrinkles and help you look and feel younger. They may not be able to completely lift a sagging eyelid or get rid of that pesky line on your forehead, but you may be surprised at what an effective at-home wrinkle treatment a rejuvenating facial cream can be.

There are so many facial creams though! Check out our blogs on skin care ingredients or talk with a dermatologist about recommended creams. Your dermatologist can even get you a prescription for a stronger, faster-acting facial cream.  

Natural Remedies

Essential oils seem to be all the rage these days, and, in some instances, they could replace your need or want for Botox!

Though chemical peels certainly aren’t Botox, many people have an aversion to experimenting with them (they can take up to 14 days to take full effect and can cause stinging, redness and scarring). If you want smoother skin, try pineapple or lemon juice! Pineapple contains skin-nourishing enzymes and lemon contains natural citric acid; simply apply fresh-squeezed juice to your entire face and leave on for 5-10 minutes.

If you’re interested in a lip filler but not injections, simply pour a small amount of peppermint oil or cinnamon powder into a bowl, dip your damp cotton swab into the mixture and apply it to your clean lips. Let it sit for a few minutes and then wash it off!

At-Home LED Light Treatments

Last but not least: LED light therapy at home. It’s similar to a service many salons could offer you, but you can do it in the convenience of your own home and on your own time — without spending as much.

The iderma® Youth Restoring Masque will reduce your fine lines and wrinkles by solving the problem, not the symptoms; your body’s collagen production decreases as you age, which is why your skin is less plump and doesn’t “bounce back” as you would like it to. The red and infrared wavelengths in our LED beauty light, though, will stimulate collagen production beneath your skin so you can get the results you want. And, best of all, it’s safe and comfortable and you can use it in the comfort of your own home instead of in a dermatologist’s office.
