Botox Creams vs Injections
When we think about anti ageing treatments, the first thing that usually comes to mind is Botox Treatment, there is little doubt that these injections are the most common and most publicised form of anti ageing treatment. Every day we can read stories about celebrities that have had the treatment – along with their successes and failures.
The subject of the safety of these injected treatments hits the headlines on a quite regular basis, at the end of the day the fact remains that Botox is a toxin – a poison that is injected into your body. There are increasingly more and more calls for a more natural form of botox that can be as effective as injected treatments without the risks and possible side effects.
Can ‘Botox Creams’ Be As Effective
There is no doubt that injected Botox treatments are fast acting and in some cases, highly effective, but there are a few ‘Botox type creams that have proved to be safer and every bit as effective, they just take a little longer to work.
How To Choose A Natural ‘Botox Cream’
Its important to choose a cream that uses proven natural high quality ingredients, some of these can include Salicylic acid, Syn-ake, Ascorbic acid, and Helianthus. These are some highly effective, proven ingredients that help to relax the facial muscles, lifting and smoothing the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does Botox Work
When Botox Toxin is injected, it works to block the receptors in the nerve endings of the muscles, effectively ‘freezing’ the muscles, a good botox cream will perform the same task without causing the appearance of swellings and misshapen features often reported after having injection therapy.
Good Botox creams also provide the skin with much needed hydration, and they also help to promote the natural production of Collagen and Elastin. It is these two compounds that give the skin its firmness and its elasticity, helping to retain its youthful look and glow.
Too Much Botox
Recent reports in the media have actually highlighted the fact that too much botox can actually have the reverse effect, and will encourage the development of lines in other places as the muscles unaffected by the Botox try and take the place of the ones frozen by the injections.
This can lead to the development of lines in other places, the most common being over the nose, where lines appearing on the bridge of the nose (called Bunny Lines) when we try to smile or laugh.
With all the concern surrounding injected Botox, there has never been a better time to consider a natural cream based alternative – one that can provide the same benefits without the pain, expense and more importantly the risks.
