Botox Alternatives

There are a number of products on the market that have been getting good reports for their ability to deliver the same results as Botox. While this will depend entirely on how they react with you there is a possibility that they will go some way towards helping to reduce wrinkles.

It is unlikely that you will get results as good as can be achieved with Botox but there are still many people who are reluctant to use Botox and these alternatives might be sufficient for what is needed.

The fact that Botox became so popular due to the success of the treatment spurred the cosmetics industry into action looking for alternatives that they could cash in with.

These Botox alternatives are classed as line relaxers and the anti aging affect that they deliver is a result of the ingredients in their formulas that soften the lines on the face that are caused by frowning and smiling.

The ingredients that are most commonly used in these products are peptides and neuro-peptides. As peptides are naturally occurring in the body many people are happier to use these than Botox. These peptides act on the muscles that cause the lines on the face and help to make the skin smoother.

Other products use GABA which is the body’s natural muscle relaxant. Reports are mixed as to whether this has any positive affect on the reduction of wrinkles and if at all it would only target the smaller lines and certainly not offer anywhere near the benefits that can be gained from Botox treatment.

As it is not possible to affect the underlying muscles in the area where this product is applied the manufacturers claim that the anti-aging affect that it will deliver is due to a combination of factors including the GABA and the other ingredients that they include in their formulas.

While it might appear to be a more cost effective solution to your problem of wrinkles you will need to take into account the fact that Botox will have a greater impact at reducing lines and will last for several months at a time with most people.
