What is Botox ? What is Best Safe Substitute in Ayurveda to Have Wrinkle-free facial skin?


Ageing is a natural process that every individual undergoes as he/she gets ‘older’ in life. The process of ageing cannot be averted, but it can surely be delayed with the help of cosmetic procedures like Botox injections, or with Ayurvedic products which can regenerate the body cells to help maintain a youthful look for a longer time. Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company offers some excellent herbal products which can safely substitute Botox and other drugs/cosmetic procedures for a younger-looking, wrinkle-free facial skin.

What is Botox?

Botox is a drug that is used by cosmetic surgeons for a number of cosmetic and medical purposes. One of the cosmetic uses of Botox is the injection of small doses of the drug into the skin of individuals undergoing a cosmetic procedure for temporarily reducing wrinkles on the face.

The Botox drug is prepared from a protein (toxin) produced by the ‘Clostridium botulinum’ bacteria. The drug is known for its anti-aging benefits because it can decrease the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face, and also slow down the formation of new fine lines and wrinkles. When Botox is injected into the face in small doses, it temporarily blocks nerve signals to certain muscles. In specific, the drug prevents the contraction of facial muscles by stopping the release of ‘acetylcholine’ neurotransmitter chemical, in order to reduce the stiffness of the muscles.

Skincare Treatment

The Botox cosmetic work involves injections of botulinum toxin type A in the targeted area of the facial skin. The injection of Botox into the skin is a minimally invasive procedure, which does not require any incisions or general anesthesia. Doctors generally use a topical anesthetic to numb the targeted skin area, so that the people undergoing the procedure do not feel any pain or discomfort.

Botox treatment is generally used for reducing the following signs of ageing:

  • Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead
  • frown lines (also known as ‘elevens’ or glabellar lines)
  • Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Fine lines at the corners of the mouth
  • ‘Cobblestone’ skin on the chin.

Botox injections provide a short-term anti-ageing effect which can last between 3 months to one year, depending on the treatment. Most people tolerate Botox anti-ageing treatment quite well. However, the botulinum toxin can still have some temporary side-effects, including bruising, mild pain, discomfort, numbness, swelling, vision problems, allergic reactions, flu-like symptoms, headache, and weakness.

What are the best safe substitutes in Ayurveda to have wrinkle-free facial skin?

Ayurveda offers some safe and natural substitutes to Botox to combat the impact of ageing and have wrinkle-free facial skin. These herbal substitutes have proven properties to deal with ageing and its effects, and comprise the ‘Rasayana’ (rejuvenation) division of Ayurveda. The herbal substitutes involve the use of certain herbs which are rich in antioxidants that decelerate the growth of cell-damaging free radicals in the body.

Ayurvedic products are believed to offer a long-lasting solution to skincare because of their wide-ranging benefits such as antioxidant cellular protection. In addition, these products also aim to balance the body’s three doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha – because a balance of these three elements is important for a youthful and healthy life.
