8 Products That Work Better Than Botox
Not convinced that a needle is your anti-aging answer? With these skin care products you can skip the injections and still get fabulous results
Arthur Perry, MD, YouBeauty.com Cosmetic Surgery Expert, says ingredients like vitamins B3 and B5 (niacinamide is another term for B vitamins) are some of the best studied when it comes to "chemicals capable of stimulating collagen and decreasing wrinkles." However, he cautions that you must be patient when using these products. "Don't expect fast results," Perry says. "You lose 1 percent of the collagen in your skin each year and it's almost like parting an ocean to stall that effect and even more difficult to actually build up new collagen. My patients who use good skin care programs don't really see any lessening of wrinkles before six months."
