Can You Imagine BOTOX Results without the Needles?

Anti-wrinkle procedure, needle injections —these daunting phrases associated with using Botox as a wrinkle reducer may be no more. New preliminary research suggests that a gel based topical Botox called RT001, could help reduce facial wrinkles—without the pain of needles.

A few facts on RT001- Topical Botox:
  •  Has been shown to produce significant improvement in the crow’s feet wrinkles in 89% of the 553 patients already treated
  •  Similar to the injectiable form, the gel relaxes the muscles responsible for causing skin wrinkles beneath the skin
  • Is not yet FDA approved and therefore will not be available until 2013 or 2014
  • Preliminary results are significant and exciting, but not quite as successful as traditional injectable Botox
  • Results of topical Botox have proved to last up to three months 
After reviewing the results of the studies on RT001, Dr. Rucker is hopeful it will deliver as promised. He has many patients that want the results of Botox, but refrain from it due to needle phobia. In the meantime, he strongly recommends Tri-Peptide Cell Activator as an effective alternative. Where Botox relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, the Tri-Peptide Cell Activator stimulates collagen production to plump the fine lines and creases. So if you are wary of needles, the Tri-Peptide Cell Activator just might be your new best friend. 


  1. Reducing facial wrinkles without the pain of needles is such good news, but the fact that the product is not yet FDA-approved is quite unfortunate. My mom wants to have a wrinkle reduction treatment, but when I told her she’d probably be inserted with needles on her face, she almost had a heart attack! I hope this will be available as early as the end of this year so those who are afraid of needles can start their journey to having younger looking skin. :)

  2. This product is good for those people like me who hate needles. I know we have a lot of needles at home since my wife loves dress making but I’m not that person who likes the idea of pricking my face with needles and injections. I just hope that there is an FDA-approved product like this in the market and I hope to purchase one to reduce my wrinkles. :)
