Botox is expensive, the results are temporary and side effects include bruising and bleeding at the injection site. In very rare cases the Botulinum toxin can cause side effects to last forever such as being no longer able to raise your eyebrows or having a mouth that constantly drools.
Even if a botox treatment goes perfectly well you will have constricted range of facial movement for 3-6 months. You may not be able to full smile or eat with ease.
A paper published by the Journal of European Academy of Dermatology in 2008 showed that when you remove the wrinkles from an image, a person is perceived as 10 years younger, but when you remove the wrinkles and even out the pigmentation, the person is perceived as almost 16 years younger. A backlash against the ‘frozen’ look that botox creates is using this human perception to gain a more youthful look – without injecting a toxin into their face that is very expensive and has such pervasive side effects.
Enter dermapen needling. Also known as micro-needling or collagen induction therapy, this non-invasive botox alternative uses tiny needles that make thousands of microscopic channels in the skin that stimulate and harness the power of the body’s natural capacity to repair and grow. These microscopic channels produce new collagen and elastin through medical processes known as neovascularisation and neocollagenesis, improving skin texture and firmness as well as reducing scars, pore size and stretch marks.
Microneedling has existed in ancient Chinese acupuncture techniques for many centuries. Nappage or mesotherapy is a French version of micro-needling that has been performed for over 50 years. Dermapen micro-needling has been proved to be a fast and effective method for safely treating wrinkles and scars. So avoid botox cost and side effects and discover the botox alternative.
