one is a peel which is skin deep and the other (Botox) paralyzes the muscle as it is injected in or near the muscle - peels do not cause muscle paralysis and will not eliminate dynamic wrinkles !
Have You Heard of Vivo Per Lei As a Botox Treatment?

Skin peels are not an alternative to Botox
Botox works on hyperactive muscles of expression such as the ones that cause the "11" between the eyebrows. Skin peels can improve the appearance of the skin in many ways but do not do what Botox does and should not be compared in any way. To imply that they are similar is misleading.
Botox and Vivo Per Lei
Botox and vivo per lei are not the same. Botox causes paralysis of musculature and amelioration of wrinkles, and the other item does not affect muscles.

No, I haven't heard of using Vivo Per Lei in lieu of cosmetic Botox. Be sure you're consulting with a reputable practice/practitioner to ensure you are getting proper information and education prior to any cosmetic treatment.
Not a botox treatment.
It is possible that this product is compared to BOTOX. Reminds me of the non-claim by Strivectin: "Better than BOTOX?" Slyly implying that it is at least as good as BOTOX without actually making a false claim. This was actually studied by skin care specialists. The bottom line is that BOTOX is great and these simple skin care treatments don't come close to doing what BOTOX does.
