Jennifer Garner: Must Midlife Crisis Lead to Botox?

Perhaps you know the US actress Jennifer Garner from Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can or comedies like 13 Going on 30. Grown up in West Virginia she lived in a bourgeois family as one of 3 sisters, initially jobbing as in a theater after cancelled studying chemistry. Gradually she succeeded in getting hold of little acting roles, in which she demonstrated her talent. 2001 she finally got her first principle role in the spy action television series Alias, for which she was awarded with a Golden Globe.

Even in her private life she was attached to the acting business: After a short-lived marriage with Scott Foley she hooked herself Oscar winner and (still) husband Ben Affleck. This relation should be over in the meanwhile; obviously not without consequences for Jennifer’s condition: The German paper Bunte described her condition after the break-up with the words “totally exhausted”. According to promiflash since then she rushes in her fitness studio from one fitness unit to another unadorned and in casual sports outfit, but indeed with suspiciously straight face. Her frozen expression is apparently a consequence of Botox, from which she had too much. As is well known, the neurotoxin Botulinumtoxin leads to a paralysis of mimic musculature, so that at a higher dose it is nearly impossible for women concerned to show a facial expression. In the fight against wrinkles one does what one can… But is it really necessary to sacrifice any nuanced expression to look younger?

Fortunately not! First of all, Jennifer has to be told that the wrinkles she fears are only the symptom, but not the reason for the problem. The reason for wrinkle development is decreasing skin quality. Therefore the skin’s quality has to be improved by the means of regenerative treatments and therewith “rejuvenated” from within.

Here are a few advices what Jennifer could do instead of Botox to rejuvenate her face:

The basis of any regeneration from the age of 40 is a therapy with bioidentical hormones (Bioidentical Hormonal Regeneration Therapy, BHRT). Especially in women of Jennifer’s age age-induced decreasing hormone levels are often responsible for external aging signs which become apparent “overnight”, but even years before mostly together with energy loss and fatigue. The supply of bioidentical hormones does not only provide a visible reduction of facial wrinkles, but does also improve the general wellbeing, especially through increase of capability, resilience, and libido.

Many women suffer from their fat pads and want nothing more than to get rid of them. Only few of them know how precious autologous body fat can be for a rejuvenating facial treatment: A treatment with autologous stem cells directly draws on skin cells concerned. Out of the patients autologous fat, which is obtained through a gentle liposuction with microcannulas, precious stem cells are extracted. Afterwards injected into stressed skin areas a visible regenerative and therefore also rejuvenating effect occurs.

Stars like Kim Kardashian swear by platelet-rich plasma out of autologous blood or growth factors of skin cells. These treatments also support skin regeneration in a natural kind of way.

Finally, an even more simple measure, completely without injections: Starting already at the age of 25 our body produces increasingly less collagen and hyaluronic acid. These are important substances for skin regeneration and essential for the skin’s elasticity and storage capacity for moisture. To provide her skin these basic elements we recommend Jennifer the intake of collagen and hyaluronic acid via nutrition. Our products Perfect Skin, available as Powder and Beauty Drink, contain the optimal dose of these skin-regenerating natural substances.

Of course we do not know what Jennifer’s separation has caused. But (still) husband Ben Affleck would certainly prefer Jennifer’s authentic mimic instead of her new, frozen expression. A few wrinkles probably don’t bother him – wrinkles are a sign of that we have lived and as long as face and skin do radiate vitality and youthfulness they give us an accent of maturity, which many people find attractive.
