Wrinkle-Reducing Results Without the Toxins

One of the best noninvasive treatments to keep the signs of aging at bay is with neurotoxin injectables like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. However, if the thought of injecting toxins and other chemicals into your body makes you a little hesitant to try it, then we have good news for you.

Europe recently approved a toxin-free anti-wrinkle treatment from Myoscience, Inc. called Iovera. Instead of using toxins, it uses "Focused Cold Therapy" to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles—similar to a neurotoxin. The results tend to last about four months before the muscles return to their normal function.

This cosmetic treatment seeks to fill the demand for less-intimidating, yet effective, anti-aging treatments.

Are you more likely to try a cosmetic treatment if it’s toxin-free?
