What You Must Know About Botox Creams
What You Should Know About Botox Creams
There is a constant expectation of Botox creams coming out or creams that mimic the effects of Botox. Botox creams give people the alternative of reaping the benefits of Botox without having to face needles. You slather some cream and voila, you get a facelift. A dream come true. While these creams sound like everything we’ve ever needed, there are several facts about such topical treatments that prove otherwise.
Botox injections are designed to penetrate the face muscles and limit their use and giving the skin a smooth look. Therefore, Botox creams would have to penetrate your skin so deeply that it would weaken your muscles and produce the same effects as a needle.
FDA has not approved any type of Botox cream for release to the general public. If you should encounter any type of third-party skincare retailer online who claims they have such a cream for sale, you should proceed with caution, as the products they are selling may contain harmful or untested ingredients that may cause long-term damage to the skin.
Stem cell creams do not contain the toxin that is present in Botox injections. Stem cell cream work by boosting fat cell production and plumping the skin as they work to boost overall cell production. On the other hand, Botox works by deadening the nerve impulses that stop certain muscular contractions in order to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines. If a Botox cream existed it would have to paralyze the facial muscles.
Skin tightening does not mean deadening face muscles. Our skin has several layers: The epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous layer. These topical products are absorbed by the epidermis, giving the skin a smooth look. However, these creams are simply deposited into creases in the skin and do not carry nutrients deep under the surface.
If you want to prevent lines from appearing or moisturizing your skin, topical treatments are a good option. There are several products available from well-known skin care companies and from several overseas companies that give you skin tightening effects. Nonetheless, beware that these only superficial results and do not penetrate the skin and muscles. Also, beware of imposters out there and always compare the ingredients and do your research.
