Although both treatments are effective in eliminating signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles, there are important differences between them that make one better than the other in certain situations. Toxins quickly (within two weeks) reduce the appearance of facial lines while RF Microneedling produces long-lasting skin rejuvenation results as its energy waves boost additional collagen production and improves the overall skin texture and tone. At Ouronyx we are proud to offer the most advanced machines for this effective treatment. Secret RF in London and Morpheus8 in Dubai will tackle the same concerns to achieve a consistently natural-looking nonsurgical lifting and tightening results.
Toxin injections contain small doses of botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin that relaxes the muscles in the injection site. Botox is the brand name many use as a representation of this toxin family, yet many other brands exist with similar functionality. When administered into the treatment areas they block the chemical signals from the nerves that induce muscle contraction so they work best for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Finally, it is important to know that microneedling treatments will stimulate collagen production resulting in plumping and smoothing the skin, yet they will not effectively reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the face as effectively as toxins will. At the same time, energy devices can also enhance and prolong the wrinkle-reducing, volumizing and lifting effects of injectables, so sometimes a combination of energy devices and injectables is required to best combat fine lines and wrinkles.
