Wrinkle Removal Without Injections ? Glamotox Aims to Plump Up Wrinkles With Ease
Are you considering BOTOX or other dermal fillers to get rid of wrinkles and achieve those youthful looks? You may not have to settle for injectables just yet; Glamotox offers an alternative solution to dermal fillers and wrinkle removal treatments, an over the counter product designed to imitate the effects of BOTOX without any needles at all. It’s one of the latest beauty treatments made with hyaluronic acid, and the company behind Glamotox claims it can freeze the muscles and provide instant wrinkle relief.
Does Glamotox live up to its claims? Here’s a closer look at this anti-aging cosmetic treatment:
The Promises of Glamotox
Glamotox is made with emollients, vitamins, peptides and hyaluronic acid to improve the appearance of the skin’s surface. Since it causes the skin tissues to swell, Glamotox helps diminish fine lines and create a more youthful appearance. Rodial, the company behind Glamotox claims that this topical treatment can:
- Temporarily freeze the muscles in place
- Provide instant relief from wrinkles with its unique wrinkle-plumping ingredients
- Hydrate the skin to make it appear softer and more resilient
- Stimulate fat deposits on the skin for long-lasting plumping
- Reduce the appearance of age spots
- Prevent future damage to the skin with a skin and sun protecting formula
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is the ingredient used in dermal fillers such as Restylane, and is a valuable alternative for those who are allergic to bovine collagen and other ingredients found in popular injectables. Though the hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin’s layers in the dermal filler treatments, Glamotox offers a topical solution that is absorbed into the skin instead.
How Glamotox Works
Hyaluronic acid can plump up the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles when injected into the skin and creates a smooth and supple appearance. Glamotox works in a slightly different way, drawing blood to the skin’s surface and increasing the size of the skin tissue in the treatment area. This provides relief from fine lines and wrinkles, and may be a beneficial way for many with aging skin to reclaim their youthful looks – at least temporarily. In addition to hyaluronic acid, Glamotox contains the following key ingredients:
Pomegranate Tannins – antioxidants that also have sun protection benefits. These can keep skin looking clear and fresh.
Myrrh extract – an ingredient commonly found in many anti aging treatments, Myrrh can stimulate fatty deposits under the skin to create more volume.
Vitamin C – another ingredient found in many anti aging creams and serums, Vitamin C can help diminish age spots and reduce fine lines.
Other Information About Glamotox
Glamotox retails for $150 per vial, a substantially lower price than the average BOTOX treatment that can range between $300 - $500+ per treatment area. It’s made by the company Rodial and launched in the U.K. with success before appearing on U.S. shelves. Since the formula contains moisturizers and ingredients for sun protection, Glamotox may be a valuable skin enhancing agent in itself.
Bottom Line: The Glamotox moisturizer is just one of several antiaging products available from Rodial, and offers one alternative to conventional BOTOX and dermal filler treatments. However, there is not enough evidence to suggest Glamotox can replace an injectable treatment or provide similar results. As a standalone product, Glamotox is made with a moisture-rich formula that can make skin more resilient, firm and smooth.
