The 3 Best Botox Alternatives

We all know that youth isn’t eternal. As time works its magic, we eventually start seeing signs of aging and this may occur as young as our mid-twenties. Before you know it, smile lines and crow’s feet creep in and our skin needs some extra attention and support to fight the signs of aging.

Thankfully, there are many different treatments and products that provide remarkable results and can keep people guessing about your true age. Although some natural remedies have stuck with us through the centuries, modern science has led the charge in concocting the most effective means to hold back Father Time’s effect on our appearances.

What Is Botox?

Botox has been the most popular non-surgical skin care treatment for years, thanks to its immediate effectiveness and benefits. Botox is a nerve-blocker that impacts how muscles react, causing the injected muscles to soften and relax. This treatment is not only used for beauty purposes, it is also used to improve spasms in the neck and general joint stiffness. It is even used to treat chronic migraines.

Still, some people would prefer to avoid Botox. In our experience, this is usually from a fear that their face will look “frozen” or that the treatment will become obvious to others. Though we personally find the right touch is a light touch, that gives people glorious results without compromising expression.

For those looking for other options, there are plenty available. We suggest talking with one of our team members to see what’s right for you.

Alternatives

Injectables

Juvederm relies on hyaluronic acid (often abbreviated as HA on labels) and it is very safe for the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance which helps in delivering skin volume. Its proponents cite their youthful rejuvenation to only a trio of injections across the facial areas.

Kybella utilizes an equally innovative solution, deoxycholic acid, to dissolve fatty tissue. It is currently the only FDA-approved injectable that has been shown to eliminate fat cells underneath the neck to reduce and eventually eliminate a double chin.

Specialized Skin Treatments

Chemical peels take layers off of the skin slowly, usually with the process of mild abrasion, to eliminate wrinkles and reduce the appearance of age. This can be done as many times as needed to stimulate fresh skin cells, and it encourages the body to be more aggressive in fighting signs of aging.

Light therapy  uses an optimized light device to deliver energy into your skin, targeting vascular and pigmented lesions, which slowly disappear as your body’s natural healing process progresses.

Laser Skin Treatments

Lasers such as IPL perform skincare dermabrasion using spectrums of light to target acne spots and wrinkles. Trained specialists apply literally laser-focused precision to your most problematic areas to ablate them smoother.

There are also laser facials which stimulate collagen, refines pores, plumps the skin, and provides an undeniable glow. These gentle laser treatments have no downtime, and are a great supplement to any skin care routine.

It’s really never too early (or too late) to start considering skincare as your body ages. It’s the largest organ you’ll ever have, and having healthy, happy skin can give you even more confidence.
