If you are interested in the topic, sit comfortably, take your time and let’s discover these beauty proposals together.

There is a lot of confusion about it and it’s right to wonder what it is, what it is for and how long a treatment by the surgeon with the famous “puncture” lasts.

Let’s start by defining what the so-called Botox is.

“Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is the most toxic protein known until now. In addition to being a source of food poisoning, in particular in the case in which meat preparations or contaminated preserves are consumed, botulinum toxin is used in the medical field(…); Botox is the best known trade name of the pharmacological preparation that uses this toxin as an active ingredient. “

(source Wikipedia)

Botulinum toxin-based drugs are of two types:

  • used for medical problems
  • the cosmetic one, used to reduce wrinkles on the face


As for facial cosmetic surgery, botulinum toxin is used to temporarily inhibit the action of the mimic muscles of the face and thus reduce the formation of expression lines.

It is important to be clear that it’s a drug and should only be used by doctors.

Cosmetic botulinum injections are very effective against expression lines but they are not very effective in case of skin wrinkles and furrows caused by loss of tone or when the damage is caused by the sun or by free radicals.

The duration of the Botox treatment is about 10/15 minutes. Its effect begins after a few days and lasts for a period ranging from 3 to 6 months and it’s possible to repeat periodically the treatment.

Although this type of treatment must be carried out by qualified professionals, it is not uncommon to see inexpressive faces or aesthetically unpleasant results.


Fillers are aesthetic medicine treatments that involve injecting fillers into the skin that improve certain skin defects. The word “filler” in fact means “filling” and that is exactly what these substances do when they are injected. They “fill the tissue” improving the aesthetics of wrinkles, signs of aging and scars.

There are semi-permanent and permanent fillers.

In the case of semi-permanent results, partially synthetic fillers are used. In the case of permanent results, entirly synthetic fillers are used.

In the first case, the effects last for a period ranging from 3 to 6 months. In the second case, just as indicated, the effect is permanent and lasts over time.

However, permanent fillers can give rise to unnatural effects and it is for this reason that people often prefer to opt for treatments with a limited duration.


It’s good to specify immediately that botulinum toxin is NOT present in the botulinum-like creams, but there are substances that simulate its effects and decontract the mimic muscles: the “Peptides”.

These creams can really be valid alternatives to the surgeon.

Let’s try to understand how they work.

They are small, highly functional amino acid sequences that are easily accepted by the epidermis.

Their operation is simple. They are applied to the skin and penetrate the epidermis. They bind to specific receptors aleady present on the walls of our cells and give to them directions of what it needs to do. They therefore replace the natural messengers of our body for certain functions.

Peptides can therefore give different indications based on the type of amino acid considered. The botulinum-like peptides are, in fact, those that allow you to create an affect similar to the traditional botulinum. In fact, they are able to relax the mimic muscles and allow the consequent relaxation of wrinkles.


In creams with similar Botox, however, it is not enough to have this type of peptides. It is true that thanks to their action they relax wrinkles but, to have a completely satisfactory effect, they need other substances to assist what they do.

The presence of hyaluronic acid is very important for their complete effectiveness. On one hand , the Botulinum-like Peptide relaxes wrinkles, on the other hand the hyaluronic acid draws water into the tissues giving consistency. This is a similar principle to what happens in fillers.

From these considerations and from the desire to give a valid alternative to the surgeon EBE was born. It is the high quality cream of IgeaNatura with Botulinum Simil

This high quality cream contains, in addition to the Peptide that simulates the effect of Botox, other very effective active ingredients such as:

  • hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and gives texture
  • the unsaponifiables of olive oil which stimulate the production of collagen by the skin. Very important capacity since self-production is preferable to the application of external collagen, which generally has a molecular weight that cannot be absorbed by the skin barrier.
  • Beeswax that prevents excessive loss of water from the skin
  • Hops Botanical Extracts, rich in antioxidants useful for safeguarding collagen fibers
  • Oats protects the skin thanks to the beta-glucan it contains and has soothing, moisturizing and emollient properties.
  • Chamomile which has an anti-inflammatory, soothing, regenerating and purifying action
  • Calendula has soothing and anti-redness properties, it also promotes regeneration, epidermal replacement and collagen production, fighting skin relaxation.
  • Hydrolyzed Oat Proteins leave the skin soft and velvety and have soothing and anti-inflammatory power.
  • Vitamin E has an antioxidant action and helps fight free radicals.

The high quality EBE Botulinum Similar cream should be applied to the face, neck and décolleté perfectly cleansed and dry, massaging until it’s absorbed.

Used constantly and for a sufficient period it can give extraordinary results, certainly not comparable with those of traditional surgery, but it will allow you to avoid the surgeon and obtain a natural effect, reducing wrinkles but maintaining your expressiveness.

To maximize the effects, we recommend alternating it with a high quality night moisturizer like our NYX.
