One of the biggest parts of aging is the super scary wrinkle that comes in shapes including the infamous laugh line and crows feet (to name a few).  And while wrinkling is a part of aging, no one wants premature wrinkles! Yes, there’s the famous Botox, where our wrinkles are injected with slight amounts of poison (yikes) to keep them from moving for a few months, but of course you could be stuck with a face that is obviously motionless.

One of the newest procedures, now under review by the FDA is freezing wrinkles (temporarlily named cryoneuromodulation). Performed by MyoScience Incorporated this procedure is a 15-minute procedure and lasts up to 4 months–sounds like Botox! However, with this method, tiny needles are injected into designated areas to freeze nerves, which are then immobilized for a few months, resulting in a natural wrinkle-free face. Of course there are still concerns about the procedure, specifically with pigmentation for darker women as well as permanent damage that could be caused, although no damage has been recorded. Personally, as scary as this procedure sounds (freezing nerves!), it does sound safer than Botox so I would be curious to see the long term effects of using this procedure. Would you try it?
