PEPTI-tone can be used on the entire face unlike Botox (spot specific) because it is not Botox nor even a toxin.
- The issues we see with Botox are muscle atrophy and a general change in morphology.
- When treating site-specific with Botox, we are concerned about changes in other portions of the face that must occur to relieve forces across the skin. This is seen when a wrinkle in one area of the face is treated and disappears, but then re-appears as new wrinkles in other areas.
- The goal of peptides that work in the area of muscle modulation is to compete with micro-muscle contraction, as to not atrophy entirely or block messages, but to contract when voluntary and necessary. It is only the involuntary constant contraction we are targeting.
- Peptides give the benefit of still being able to contract a muscle group without atrophy. It is not necessary to be site specific with PEPTI-tone.
