Botox: Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Injections using the toxin to prevent a muscle from moving for a limited time and preventing facial muscles to contract. Botox is popular due to its ability to paralyze muscles and prevent wrinkles from forming. It is possible that Botox could result in the reduction of wrinkles from forming. However, this may result in some facial expressions being lost. If it's not injected properly, Botox can freeze certain facial muscles and cause a constantly surprised look.
When Botox is used over a long period of time, the lack of muscle usage causes muscle atrophy which causes the muscle to shrink and sag just like how it would anywhere else on the body if the muscle is no longer in use. This will require the use of Botox indefinitely and eventually the use of fillers or surgery depending on the amount of sagging to the skin. Botox cannot prevent sagging skin. Botox requires the use of needles and the injection can cause pain and bruising.
Micro-current: widely known as the nonsurgical face-lift. Microcurrent uses a low-grade electrical current to "train" your facial muscles to appear more lifted, tightened, and firm. As a result the skin appears healthier, diminishes signs of aging, improves your face contour, to lift and tone muscles beneath the skin. Microcurrent facials have immediate results that peak on the third day and last about 3-6 weeks. They also work cumulatively so you will see a major difference over the long term if you continue treatments. The treatment is non-invasive, no pain, no bruising and no needles.
Unlike neurotoxins such as botulinum toxin (Botox), microcurrents won't stop your muscles from moving but will improve their quality and tone: it's bit like taking your face to the gym. For older skin this is a noninvasive treatment to lift and tone skin with significant results. For younger skin, this type of treatment may very well be all you need to keep skin smooth and firm.
