an alternative

Injectable cosmetic botulinum toxin type A (like that sold under the brand names Botox or Dysport) is a neurotoxin : the official prescribing information compiles a long list of known possible side-effects. The long-term effects of these injections are still unknown. The procedure can potentially blunt the ability to express subtler emotions, it involves repeated (sometimes painful) injections, and the costs begin at approximately $1000 per year.

Hypnox is a 25-minute hypnotic audio track which mimics the effects of the cosmetic injectables. It is completely safe, natural and non-invasive, and you need only purchase the CD once. Hypnox is also a particularly valuable alternative for those working in the performing arts, where the ability to express a full range of emotion with the face is vital. And finally, Hypnox can be used as a preventative measure, to be used in the years before habitual wrinkling has a chance to take hold.

The two products are not mutually exclusive - by extending the results of the injections, Hypnox can reduce the need for repeated follow-up visits.
