Out: Botox, In: Snake Venom

Botox, that's so 2008! The latest craze for youthful skin sounds like something out of a horror novel, snake venom!
Why Snake Venom?
While you probably think of snake venom as harmful, it actually can produce anti-aging benefits when applied topically to the skin. Some have even said the results are better than Botox! Through years of research, it was found that snake venom temporarily inhibits muscle activity, which prevents and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Who would have thought to incorporate such a lethal substance into your skin care routine? Well, several years ago Israel and Nate Dakar, creators and co-founders of Sonya Dakar Skincare, discovered the benefits of temple viper venom. Yes, they studied the effects of real cobra viper venom, but have no fear, the snakes were not harmed during the process.
Is It Safe To Use?
After years of research and development, Sonya Dakar Skincare produced a synthetic version, a.k.a. "syn-ake," a harmless synthetic tripeptide that mimics the effects of snake venom when applied on the skin.
Why should people choose Microvenom over other anti-aging formulas? Good question! “While everyone has different skin care needs, our exclusive MicroVenom formula is ideal for individuals looking to incorporate a preventive and/or restorative anti-aging component into their skin care regimen. Choosing skin care products with "syn-ake" may prove to be a viable alternative to invasive procedures like lasers, Botox or Juvederm. Our MicroVenom technology includes nine anti-aging ingredients, helping cells from all angles ” says Sonya Dakar Skincare’s Beauty Director, Sarah Dakar.
It is recommended to have a consultation with a skin care specialist before use, but the synthetic snake venom is engineered to be completely safe and harmless.
Is It Really Better Than Botox?
With Botox, you have to get frequent injections to maintain results. Snake venom, on the other hand, is painless and relatively hassle-free, making it an easy step to add into your skin care regimen to achieve the same results. After about three weeks of consistent application, users should notice a dramatic difference in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This new skin care miracle has even slithered (get it?) its way onto the faces of Hollywood's hottest celebs such as India.Arie, Josh Duhamel and Fergie, who are already fans of this fake facelift frenzy.
Whether you're a young fresh-faced beauty or just looking for a new product to spice up your daily routine, snake venom skin care products might be the perfect beauty secret for you!
