Let’s face it…wrinkles are a pain. The worst part is they’re created by our own expression and animation, constantly contracting muscles to smile, laugh or look surprised. In order to stay wrinkle free, none of us can be expected to maintain an expressionless appearance. Instead, cosmetic muscle relaxers are perfect for this purpose. When used expertly, they can target the exact muscles responsible for wrinkles in the forehead or between the brows, all without hindering our ability to be as expressive as ever.
At the Defy Nature in New London, we are proud to provide our patients with a tasteful, effective approach to cosmetic muscle relaxers. By taking the time to use muscle relaxers to highlight your natural beauty, we strive to provide the best BOTOX treatment in South Eastern CT.

How safe is BOTOX?
BOTOX is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the world. In 2014 alone, over 5 million Americans received this simple yet remarkable treatment and the trend is definitely up. BOTOX has a stellar safety record when performed by trained professionals.
BOTOX is derived from bacteria that temporarily blocks nerve activity. Besides its use as an effective wrinkle eraser, it is safely used for several medical conditions such as a chronic migraine, overactive bladder, and spasms in the neck.
Millions of people are enjoying the benefits that BOTOX bring to their lives and Los Angeles residents are no different. Many of Defy Nature clients return every 4 to 6 months for a BOTOX touch up, particularly at the onset of the holiday party season or before important social events.
At the Defy Nature, we offer three muscle relaxers: BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin. Our doctor agrees that these three products represent the highest standard of cosmetic excellence. When you come see us for treatment, we will review the two products thoroughly so that the correct one is used for your case.
BOTOX vs. Dysport
These two wrinkle smoothing products are really very similar. They both are used to relax crow’s feet, horizontal lines on the forehead and vertical frown lines. Both products smooth fine lines and wrinkles without interfering with natural expression.
Dysport is found to work a little faster than BOTOX; 2 to 5 days as opposed to the usual 4 to 7 days experienced by BOTOX clients. Dysport also tends to disburse into a wider area which makes it an ideal treatment for areas such as the forehead but not an ideal product for other areas.
There is still much debate on which product lasts longer and whether more Dysport is needed to achieve the same result. Both products enjoy a high safety record and both can be used elsewhere in the body.
