Are There Any Botox Substitutes?
In today’s western culture, beauty and the pursuit of beauty is taken very seriously, we seem to be a society obsessed with totally eradicating lines and wrinkles, and Botox has become one of the world’s most popular aesthetic treatments. However, not everyone wants to go for the vague expressionless face of the over-Botoxed, most people want the best of both worlds, retaining their character as well as their youth, so can Botox be done well and are there Botox substitutes for tackling lines and wrinkles?
A smile can light up your face and speak a thousand words, a frown can perfectly convey your concern or disapproval, each day we communicate our feelings without words a thousand times over. Think about all the ways you can express emotions using just your face. Even newborn babies seem to be born understanding the importance of faces because as early as 9 minutes after birth, babies prefer to look at faces rather than objects and at a few weeks begin to mimic facial expressions.
Preserving these universal visual facial clues but tackling lines and wrinkles is an art form and one that we take very seriously at PHI Clinic.
Laser Resurfacing and AquaGold As Botox Substitutes
Using a fractional laser, the PHI medical team can deliver concentrated pulses of light to the skin, removing the top layer or layers, which results in wrinkles and lines fading away. The healing process encourages new skin growth, which emerges as taut and smoother skin, leading to an overall revitalised and refreshed appearance.
AquaGold Fine TouchTM is a gold-plated micro-injection system that delivers custom solutions painlessly into the skin to affect the dermis. The applicator consists of microneedles that can be filled with a mixture of ingredients to suit your individual needs. Ingredients include vitamins, enzymes, plant extracts, and micro-quantities of botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that is applied gently to the skin at a depth of 600 microns in order to improve texture, tone, and even firmness thus smoothing out lines and wrinkles whilst preserving your naturally beautiful expression.
Ultrasound As Botox Substitutes
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), is a non-invasive technique for lifting loose skin on the face and neck, and following treatments patients usually report longer-lasting face lifting results and a reduction of facial lines and wrinkles.
HIFU can also be adopted to improve skin laxity and tone on the decolletage and jawline. It helps to firm the skin and create a much younger-looking appearance, without the scalpel and downtime associated with surgeries such as face lifting and neck lifting.
Dermal Filler 8 Point Lift
Loss of volume and structure within the face can be responsible for the emergence of lines, wrinkles, or crepey appearing skin. The 8 Point Non-Surgical Facelift is a revolutionary technique perfected at PHI Clinic which subtly enhances your natural features, elevating the face, providing structure and support, and therefore reducing the aspect of lines and wrinkles.
The 8 Point Lift utilises the most advanced HA-based dermal fillers which produce natural-looking results. At PHI we only use the best quality dermal fillers, Juvederm Vycross range, which has the longevity of up to 24 months.
Baby Botox is a term that is used when very small amounts of Botox are injected into the dermis to improve winkles only very mildly. At PHI we tailor the amount you require based on your wishes and your facial muscles to achieve a natural look.
Whether you decide to have baby Botox or a regular Botox treatment at PHI, we will always listen attentively to your wishes and end goals. We work with our patients as a team and it is our number one endeavour to produce the results you want, so your skin looks smoother, but you still look like yourself, a revitalized and more refreshed younger-looking version of you.
