With the growing trend toward more permanent results, we are surprised that more than 6 months after receiving FDA approval, Glabella Furrow Relaxation(GFX), or “No-Tox”, has received little hype.
The minimally invasive procedure uses radiofrequency thermal energy to “shock” the nerves that allow you to frown (and only those nerves, avoiding the all-over frozen look that many women are scared of when considering Botox). The results appear to last at least 2 years, and essentially replace those painful Botox shots between the eyes. Of course that doesn’t mean no more Botox because the procedure is only for the frown lines and does not replace Botox in other areas, such as around the eyes.
GFX sounds like an ideal alternative for those who get Botox routinely or those too scared of being injected with a toxin. There are, however, two drawbacks:
1. Only two doctors in the entire United States are performing the procedure right now, and…
2. For the $2000-3000 price tag, you may be able to just get a brow lift.2 comments
