In Indianapolis, face lifts and Botox are quite popular for combating the aging process. In fact, many cosmetic procedures occur because a patient wants to get rid of wrinkles or simply look and feel younger. But aside from the standard procedures mentioned previously, there isn’t much anti-aging processes that work without the help of a plastic surgeon. However, it seems that there may be a more natural way to combat age if you are not ready to take the plunge into cosmetic procedures, such as the ones I perform every day at my Indianapolis plastic surgery practice.
There are a lot of anti-aging skin creams out there that supposedly work, and some actually do, but the most common ingredients in these creams that do really work are antioxidants. But a new ingredient, the leaf bud of poplar trees, could be the ingredient to push antioxidants out of these creams.
Poplar trees have already been used to combat colds, sinusitis, sunburn and arthritis. But after further study conducted by researcher Xavier Vitrac, the poplar bud has shown that it contains a healthy dose of antioxidant activity. When put to work on some cells in the laboratory it was found that anti-aging effects did occur. Vitrac says that the antioxidant activity was so promising that this extract has a lot of potential to be utilized in cosmetic formulas.
This is great news for those that are not yet ready to undergo Botox injections or a face lift. It is also great news for people who would rather use something natural to combat those pesky wrinkles. But remember, better results are more likely to come out of a cosmetic procedure over a simple cream applied once a day. Whichever you choose, however, is up to you. What’s most important is that you feel good about yourself and your age.
