Answer: Its sounds like a back room beauty product– Botox in a gel that you simply apply to the skin. But its really happening.

Almost instantly, my anxiety level was replaced by an awesome sense of contentment. Zoloft could certainly take a few lessons from Botox.
The full impact will not be seen for a few days, but within six hours I could see a remarkable difference. I have loved the life I have had — my family, work, friends and travel– but when I caught my reflection in a mirror, it … Continue Reading… →
