In a world where the biggest news priority is our first lady’s bare shoulders and fashion sense, there is no question that beauty and youthfulness are a top concern. This explains why millions of people each year make the trek to their favorite cosmetic physician’s office for botox injections. Botox is the trade name for the neurotoxin Botulinum Toxin which is used to temporarily paralyze certain facial muscles and smooth frown lines. This anti-aging wonder, which was discovered as a treatment for facial and vocal cord spasms as early as the 1950’s and 60’s, was not officially approved by the FDA as a wrinkle reducer until 2002. Today, Botox is used not only for anti aging, but also to treat crossed eyes, facial spasms and even excessive sweating.
The problem with Botox lies in mainly in the cost and the fact that it is only a temporary fix. Usually, Botox injections only last six or so month before treatment must be sought again. With each injection ranging between $600 and $800 depending on your area and physician, this procedure can be extremely taxing on your wallet. Herein lies the need for an alternative to botox injections.
Restylin injections temporarily replenish the Hyaluronic acid in your skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that provides fullness and elasticity. As we age, our skin loses this vital component causing wrinkles and sagging. This Botox alternative
ranges anywhere from $150 to $1500 depending on the extent of treatment and the physician performing the procedure. Because Restylin is also a temporary fix, it can be a costly and if done improperly can cause long-term lumps and swelling of the skin.
There are countless topical treatments to consider in order to avoid invasive injections and the monetary invasion on your wallet caused by Botox. One such product is Revexin. Like Restylin injections, Revexin contains Hyaluronic Acid, which allows the skin to hold up to 70% more water creating unmatched hydration. Additionally, Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, known as Argireline in Revexin inhibits muscle contraction and reduces the release of catecholamines, which are an instrumental component in the formation of lines and wrinkles. ASCIII Liposome, a collagen amplifier, stimulates the skin cells to produce collagen 3, a naturally occurring component found in youthful skin. This anti-aging cocktail, along with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Green Tea Extract and Alpha Lipoic Acid create a product that is sure to please those seeking the skin of a heavenly cherub, without selling one’s soul to pay for it.Jim Riggs
