What is Botox?

Botox is perhaps the most popular and well-known cosmetic injectable beauty solution in the world today. For over two decades, men and women have used Botox to chase away fine lines and wrinkles, especially those around the eyes and forehead. Botox is so effective in these areas because of how it targets your offending wrinkles. 

Fine lines and wrinkles above and around your eyes and across your forehead are created by repeated facial expressions over time. These markings become etched into your facial muscles in these areas, creating a perpetual older look. 

The botulinum toxin from which Botox is made partially blocks the nerve signals to these muscles. This allows them to relax, erasing the prints of fine lines and wrinkles and helping smooth your natural skin. 

The keys to getting the best results with Botox are location and precise amounts of the protein. All this depends on a qualified and experienced aesthetic specialist who uses just the right amount of Botox in just the right places to achieve the desired results. A professional aesthetician can even use Botox effectively to erase lines around your mouth and neck. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers have become even more popular as many different brands and formulations have become available. These various options allow qualified aestheticians to target specific problems with your appearance as well as rehydrate your skin for a younger aesthetic appeal. 

Dermal fillers are mostly injectable hyaluronic acid, whis is natural to your body. The fillers are injected into specific areas to add volume and smooth out troublesome wrinkles. The combination of filler material and hyaluronic acid helps to rejuvenate aged skin and give you a healthy glow. 

The professional aesthetic team at Defying Time offers these dermal filler options:
