- Posted on: Aug 15 2016
Everyone and their mom has gotten a treatment of Botox— or at least so it seems. And as the most popular injectable on the market, Botox offers individuals great results that keep patients going back time after time. However, if you are interested in getting a skin treatment that fights those pesky fine lines and wrinkles without the help of Botox, you are in luck. From Fraxel to EMatrix, Cara Mia Medical Day Spa offers a variety of treatments that will give you great results without Botox. Read on to learn more.
Fraxel is a procedure that uses microscopic laser columns to penetrate deep into the skin in order to heat it up. By heating up the skin, the process stimulates the body’s natural healing process which then produces collagen and elastin which will help to aid in treating those fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead.
As another alternative to Botox and as a way to fight those fine lines and wrinkles, E Matrix use radio frequency that works to direct the energy below the skin and accelerates the healing process. Similar to Fraxel, your body’s natural reaction to being heated up is to heal itself by producing new skin cells and new collagen, which in turn leaves you with a smoother looking complexion and helps to fill in those fine lines and wrinkles caused by age and sun damage.
Thermage is another non-invasive procedure that helps to restore and encourage the production of collagen in the face and in the body. By using radiofrequency to heat up the skin cells on your face, Thermage is designed to trigger the production of new regenerative skin cells and collagen.
With little to no downtime at all, these three alternatives to Botox are great at giving patients a more youthful looking appearance by getting rid of those fine lines and wrinkles.
