What Price Beauty?

It’s a common expression. Less well known is that “What Price Beauty” was the title of a silent movie from 1928 and a 1977 documentary. Beauty, it seems, has been on the minds of humans for millennia and the subject of digitally recorded interest for more than a hundred years. As beauty standards and our definition of beauty have evolved, so have the methods with which we achieve the goal of looking our absolute best.

Beauty in the Twenty-First Century

Americans have very high standards of beauty. The current standard is as much related to looking your very best – healthy, vital, and well – as it is to any specific aesthetic standard. To achieve the standard of energy and robustness, there are numerous medical aesthetic options available. For example, the use of neurotoxins in anti-aging treatments has become one way of turning back the clock.

Neurotoxins – That Sounds Scary!

The word neurotoxins sounds ominous, doesn’t it? Technically, a neurotoxin is defined as something that changes the way the nervous system is structured or functions. An example of an externally applied neurotoxin is the venom from a snake bite, which requires medical attention because it can be ingested (involuntarily) in too high a dose for safety. Another example of a neurotoxin is alcohol consumption, which can cause relaxation or impairment, depending on the amount ingested. However, in well-controlled dosages, neurotoxins are safe for both medical and cosmetic treatment. In carefully moderated micro doses, botulinum toxin can be injected into facial muscles. Medications commonly used for this treatment are:

  • Botox Cosmetic
  • Xeomin
  • Dysport
When injected by a licensed medical professional in a medical wellness or other medical setting, these medications are safe and effective in helping anti-aging.

Cosmetic Treatment with Neurotoxins

  • Xeomin is very efficacious in reducing the appearance of facial lines
  • Xeomin is free of extra proteins and less allergenic than Botox
  • Treatment with Xeomin feels as painless as an insect bite

Those seeking this cosmetic procedure frequently choose the following areas for treatment:

  • Eyebrow area
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead

  • Crow’s feet
