No, we’re not going to ask you to spend a month in Antarctica or stick your head in the freezer for an extended amount of time. We’re talking about an alternative treatment to neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin* to get rid of those pesky wrinkles.
Myoscience Inc., a California based aesthetic medical device company, recently developed a system that freezes your nerves instead of paralyzing them, to get the same smooth surface on your skin that you would get with a neurotoxin. What is injected into the skin is a pressurized refrigerant that “hyper cools” the nerves and puts them into hibernation. The new treatment lasts about four months and must be repeated in order to maintain the desired results, just as you would with a neurotoxin.
The big bonus with opting for this system is that it boasts the same effects as neurotoxins, but without the toxins. While it’s not yet approved by the FDA, it has already been approved for use on wrinkles and muscle pain in Europe and Canada.
