 If the venom is being injected, the dermatologist will first numb your skin with a numbing cream. Remember to not wear any makeup or products on your skin before the procedure. The venom will be injected in specific areas of the face and body depending on what area you are having treated. It is recommended to have this procedure done about once per month for about 3 months but the professional administering these treatments will suggest a schedule for you depending on the area treated.

Final Thoughts

Bee venom therapy is great for beauty and anti aging and many health issues. Some people may believe that bees may be harmed during the harvesting process, this theory is incorrect. The bee venom is harvested by a very humane process. The beekeepers will use a flat plate with wires stretched across them, and then when the bee lands on the wires of the plate, a small electric shock will make the bee want to sting, and then the bee drops a bit of venom during this process.

 The on the plate is so thin that the bee is able to fly away without being harmed. Before having any kind of treatment, be sure to speak with a health professional. Check out the many products that you can buy over the counter and try them out in your skin care regimen. Have you tried bee venom therapy or any products containing bee venom?
