While there are a lot of products on the market claiming to be alternatives to BOTOX, there isn’t a single nonsurgical option that can provide the same results. Some creams and peels are able to reduce some signs of aging, but they don’t work as effectively as this popular injectable. Getting BOTOX in Austin will not only make you appear more youthful, it can keep you looking young for decades to come.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX works by being injected into the muscles in the face, temporarily relaxing them and preventing them from contracting. This creates a smooth texture that reduces the sign of creases and fine lines. Since the muscles can’t contract, it also prevents new wrinkles from forming, especially frown lines and crow’s feet. Although the results of BOTOX aren’t permanent, they often last for more than 3 months. Many patients make BOTOX treatments a normal part of their skincare routine, while others get a single treatment to test the waters. Either way, we can help you choose a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle, goals, and budget.
Why Lotions Can’t Compete
BOTOX is a prescription medication called botulinum toxin type A and cannot be purchased over the counter. Any lotion or serum that advertises itself as “BOTOX in a bottle” doesn’t contain this ingredient and will not produce the same results. Additionally, topical creams tend to sit on the surface of the face, so they take longer to reduce the signs of aging. And they get washed off each day in the shower—while BOTOX is unaffected by your normal activities as it sits deep within the facial muscles. Although using high-quality skincare products is important, their efficacy is limited as they merely sit on the surface of the skin.
Why Chemical Peels Can’t Compete
Chemical peels are also often compared to BOTOX injections, since they’re able to provide similar results. As their name suggests, chemical peels use a substance of different levels of potency to peel off the top layers of the skin. This forces the body to replace these skin cells with healthier, new ones that leave the face looking more youthful. They are able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but unlike BOTOX, they don’t work to prevent new creases from forming. A chemical peel can make a nice adjunct treatment to BOTOX.
