I don’t like the idea of injecting a foreign protein into my face that is made from bacteria associated with causing food poisoning. Are there any facial fillers made from natural proteins available?

Answer:

Even though Botox is made from botulism, it has been diluted to a harmless level and it is very safe. Botox does provide amazing results, however there are many choices of facial fillers made from natural proteins available. Restylane and Juvederm are made from hyaluronic acid, a natural protein already found in the body. Also, Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxylapatite, another natural protein already found in the body. Each of these facial fillers works best in different areas of the face.  Make sure you do your research so you know which would be best in the area you’d like to improve.
