Licensed naturopathic doctors in Los Angeles discuss Botox alternatives
Botox is a type of poison
There’s no doubt that Botox can deliver some truly amazing before and after transformations—smoothing lines and wrinkles and making your skin appear younger and tighter. But there’s also no denying that injecting a poison (botulinum toxin) into your body can be scary and, in rare occurrences, can result in horrific Botox nightmares. On the surface, Botox treatments seem counterintuitive. Patients willingly inject toxin into the muscles under the skin to deaden sensation and partially paralyze themselves . . . all to look a little younger. And the results aren’t even permanent! According to the *Mayo Clinic’s website, Botox injections may cause:
- Muscle weakness all over the body
- Vision problems
- Injection site reactions
- Trouble speaking or swallowing

Naturopathic Alternatives to Botox
Collagen Induction Therapy is an all-natural alternative to Botox for people who are not comfortable putting foreign chemicals in their bodies.
During Collagen Induction Therapy, your skin’s natural healing factors are used to boost collagen growth and give your skin that plump, youthful look you desire. Many Collagen Induction patients notice a healthy “glow” immediately after their appointment. These youthful age-defying results continue to improve for up to 6 months.Learn more about this and other naturopathic alternatives to Botox: visit www.PureVitalityCenter.com.
