They also offer several other similar injectables that work in the same way with varying formulas.

Botox is a trusted name-brand injectable that contains botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that temporarily halts your muscle movements. When a trained provider injects Botox in small amounts, they can target certain muscles responsible for forming fine lines on your face.
Defy Nature offers two other antiaging products with the same active ingredient: Dysport® and Xeomin®. During your consultation, your provider can help you navigate their differences to select the right injectable for your treatment.
Botox doesn’t treat just any wrinkle on your face: It specializes in a subset of wrinkles called dynamic wrinkles that appear with repeated muscle movements. While some wrinkles are the result of skin sagging and collagen loss, dynamic wrinkles on your face develop and get deeper when you make facial expressions. After years of this, you can see them even when you’re not smiling, frowning, or raising your brows.
A few examples of dynamic wrinkles that Botox injections can treat are:
You can get a few Botox injections to target a single area of wrinkles, or you can get several for a well-rounded improvement.
You won’t see the results of Botox right away, but it doesn’t take long for them to appear. Some patients notice that their wrinkles are minimized just 24 hours after their injection appointment, while others notice after about 48 hours.
The team may advise you to avoid rubbing your skin where the injections were placed for at least 24 hours after your appointment. Rubbing your skin can cause the drug to spread to other muscles that you don’t want it to affect.
The results of Botox aren’t permanent, but a few well-placed injections can allow you to stay fine line-free for up to four months. After that, you can book maintenance injections to continue enjoying your smoother facial skin.
If you’d like to try a round of Botox injections and see some of your wrinkles disappear, call Defy Nature or reserve an appointment online today.
