Botox vs Newtox: What’s the Difference?
Wrinkles and fine lines developing on our faces have been beauty concerns that doctors and aestheticians have been combating for years. Luckily, we’ve had Botox in our tool kit. Botox is an injectable treatment that stops wrinkles from forming and removes signs of aging, such as crow’s feet or bunny lines, from the face. It can be an incredibly effective rejuvenating procedure and there’s a reason it’s earned its place as an age-old cosmetic treatment. But with age comes increased wisdom; enter Newtox, a newer option to Botox.
Newtox works the same as Botox but it can be better at treating certain lines and wrinkles on the face. Newtox is also safer because it uses a more purified version of the active ingredient it shares with Botox. Because it’s newer, Newtox has fewer approved uses than Botox, and is only used for cosmetic purposes, while Botox can be used to treat certain medical conditions such as migraines and excessive sweating. Additionally, Newtox may be a good option for people who have developed a resistance to Botox’s formula and still want to maintain their desired look.
The Science Behind the Wrinkle-Free Magic
The active ingredient in Botox and Newtox is botulinum toxin. By injecting it into the skin or muscle, it temporarily freezes the nerves and stops your face from wrinkling. In other words, when you laugh, smile, or frown, Botox and Newtox keep your skin tight and in place, without hindering your ability to express yourself. After you receive your treatment, you will be able to see results within a day. The effects of Botox and Newtox can last anywhere from three to six months. It’s advised that you continue your treatments after this period to keep your skin taut and rejuvenated.
