Botox Glamtox Sticks The New Way To Bust Those Wrinkles! Botox In A Bottle!

Would you try it?

Now I don't know about you, but there always seems to be so many different creams and potions on the market, that say they can get rid of wrinkles. I personally think that the majority of these creams are only good on the surface level of your skin. If you do not eat the right foods, take enough vitamins or just drink and smoke too much, then slapping a bit of cream on your face is not going to do a lot.

There are also other things that people try to get their face back to the way it was when they were twenty years old. Facial scrubs, microdermabrasion, electric pads that make the muscles of your face jump about as though you've got a twitch! I actually like these, I have one at home. Mind you, it gets a bit painful when you hit the wrong spot, and if you have any fillings in your teeth, then make sure that you don't have the setting to high! Painful.

Then of course there is Botox. This is made from botulinum toxin, this is produced mainly from the bacteria that occurs when handling meat in the wrong way. It is probably one of the most toxic forms of poisoning known to man, we know it in it's original form called Botulism or food poisoning! Nice! Now do you want it, now that you know what it is made from? No? didn't think so!

So, what we need is a safe and easy way of getting rid of those wrinkles. This is where the Glamtox Sticks come into it.

 

The Science behind it.

Glamtox Sticks are sold in sachets, and these you mix with water and taken twice daily. But what are they? The mixture of chemicals and collagen are a combination of pepti peptides and two ingredients that are vital to the way that the collagen can be produced. These are pomegranate extracts, which increases the production of the collagen and elastin which helps to regenerate the skin. The second little miracle maker chemical is Peptan which improves the skin so that it stays smooth and does not cause it to wrinkle! Good eh? Also it helps to promote and improve moisture levels. I think a good glass of water can do the same thing on that one!

But seriously though, the sticks have been in development for more than a year with independent trials.

 

This is a quote from Maria Hatzistefanis, who is the founder of the makers Rodial.

After a years worth of research and development, we believe we have devised the most advanced and simplistic way of combating the signs of ageing from the inside out. We want to teach women that we can do more to tackle the devastating signs of ageing than just apply lotions, creams and chemicals to the surface of the skin. By boosting the levels of natural collagen, absorbed by your body internally, the dramatic anti-ageing effects are visible almost immediately.

 

So What do you think?

This is the first time that a product like this, has hit the market. This collagen powder is the first of it's kind, instead of putting it on your face, it actually works through the digestive system.

So What do you think? is it safe? Some of the questions that I would like to ask are,

1. How do we know that the collagen will actually absorb and mix in with our own collagen. There were surveys done that showed that the collagen molecule in face cream is too big to penetrate the skin. If that was the case with the creams, then how will they get around the problems with absorption?

2. As this is foreign material, instead of natural collagen, surely it will break down quickly, and just be absorbed into your liver and kidneys, then passed naturally.

3. And what about safety? Is it suitable for people with autoimmune disorders, for example, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, herpes simplex, or even diabetes? Do you think that the makers should put a health list on the jar or packet just to be certain that it is suitable for everyone?

4. And last but not least, did you know any form of collagen treatment that you apply to your skin, or take as tablets, and in this case, drink, the collagen is taken from either cows or chickens! So if you don't want to start an itchfest check the label before drinking!

My personal opinion is that we seem to be totally obsessed with trying to look younger, and to be fair we have all tried a new product that has come on the market. I hope that this will be the wonder liquid that finally stops us breaking the bank to look beautiful. All I ask for is that people always read about what they are putting in their systems before swigging back a new product that may be just an expensive waste of time, and more importantly always check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking it if you take medication.

This information is just my opinion, the above facts are taken from various sources, but I am not a pharmacist. I do take medication for thyroid problems, therefore I am always careful when trying new products.

 

Facts and Snippets

The first thing I want to ask is where the "tox" part of the name comes from - yikes! It conjures up some nasty images. Collagen in various forms (rooster combs, bovine) has been around for awhile and I haven't seen anyone rushing about saying how many years it has taken off their skin yet, though it has been claimed as a pleasant side effect. Un huh. I don't know. Maybe if we up the vitamin C (which DOES promote collagen production) we might get more results for a lot less money. Just a thought :))

Hi, SilverGenes, that was quick! thanks for being the first to get here, i am still fiddling with the capsules, and I am not sure how to do them. I first saw this yesterday and I thought what a great idea, then i started thinking about the side effects etc. I think people, especially celebs take anything as long as they are told that it works. we will have to wait and see. thanks again nell

Nell, if it works and there are no detrimental side effects, I will keep them in business! LOL

High time there was an alternative to botox! Pomegranates have always been known to be good for the skin and animal bone extracts have as well - so it makes so much sense! Great hub! Now if only it works on my old skin :D

Thank you Nell for explaining this new "miracle" so well and putting it in context. Every day the beauty industry comes out with a "new and improved product" and people keep on hoping against hope that the new fad will finally work; it will not.

As a skin care business owner I have always told my clients: "If you got wrinkes, enjoy them"; no creams, no piles will ever do anything to get rid of them - the breakdown of collagen and the effects of gravity will make sure of it.

Short of plastic surgery and powerful chemical peels, nothing will work and, as always, the results are proportional with the risks. I have a few hubs about skin care written under my professional name - Gabriella D'Anton (maybe we can link up some of them)

You did a great job of presenting it, Nell. The skin is a protective barrier, it does not allow large molecules to get in. The effect of botox..is to stimulate the allergic reaction and in so doing bring water molecules along with macrophages, the ones that engulf and get rid of anything that it sees foreign, to the surface. Hence, the effect of reducing the wrinkle.

Collagen cannot be absorbed by the skin.

However the effect of any beauty product is via the psychology of the women using them.

Hi, Melinda, I quite agree with you that mostly it is psychological, I know I feel much happier with moisturiser on my face. It does work to a certain degree in that it makes your face more supple, but the rest is down to genes and good luck! I think the best thing to use is probably just suntan lotion. thanks nell

No, thank you. More and more, I put the claims of cosmetics moguls into the same category with those of the makers of synthetic meds. Most mask the real situations and delay the use of the best health measures which would do some good.

I have the feeling that you are going to be our guinea pig, Nellie! "Now you go ahead and try this stuff and report back to us....if you happen to grow a few hairy moles or anything else happens to your skin, you just let us know!" I worry about all these 'quick fixes' but I guess it would be cool if they worked - with no side effects! I generally use the 'old fashioned' face lift method myself to dispel wrinkles. I put a ponytail holder in my hair that is SO tight, it automatically draws my face up and sucks the wrinkles right out! Of course I have a splitting headache - but ya know - it takes pains to be beautiful as I recall my crazy grandma telling me! I must be a knockout! Good info though - keep us posted!

Hi, Nellieanna, you are so right, there are so many so called miracle creams and potions out there that are not any good, I just think suntan lotion is the best, sun is the thing that gives you wrinkles, therefore just slap on the sun cream! lol thanks as always nell

This was interesting. I still am sticking to my aloe vera. It does the same thing as all those other things do in that it restores the collagen and all that. Im 35 and I just got told I looked 19 or in my 20's So I swear by aloe vera and my mom used it too and you never guess she was as old as she was except she had grey hair which gave her age away. Lol

Hi, Janny, Yeah you certainly do look in your twenties. I will use what you are using! lol My great grandmother used to eat an onion every day! she swore that it was the onion that made her have such a lovely skin! cheers nell

I heard about botox many times. And this good to help wrinkles and renew the old skin. So we look more younger. But I heard the price of botox treatment so expensive. But it good for alternative and other option. Thanks for share this with us. Thumbs up for you.

Hi, prasetio, that's why this is a bit cheaper I think, at least you can just put this in a drink and use it that way, but you don't look old enough to need it anyway! lol thanks again nell

Oh Nell- I should try this right away! You know- to keep looking as young and beautiful like I do we have to use every trick! I didn't get these good looks by accident! Okay, maybe there were a couple accidents that altered my appearance like the truck and two cars that hit me.

Hi, Mickey, ha ha did you squash the truck and cars? lol you are just beautiful in your own way, specially speeding down the highway on your bike at ninety miles an hour! lol thanks again nell


botox cheshire 6 years ago

The effects can last for 3 to 5 months or sometimes longer depending on the individual. If you like the effects, you will need repeat treatments 2 to 3 times per year. Clinical trials have shown that over time the duration of the effect increases, resulting in less treatments being needed to maintain the result.

It usually takes 2 to 3 days to begin to work, with the full effect being at 7 days.

Use lots of facial expressions to work the Botox into the muscles for the first day.

Do not massage or rub the area as this can cause the toxin to spread beyond the treated area. Do not lie down for four hours after the injections.
