BOTOX® is an FDA-approved treatment that is used medically to treat wrinkles in specific facial muscles. Sometimes wrinkles are caused by muscles that are overactive, and BOTOX® allows these muscles to relax, therefore eliminating the wrinkles. Like BOTOX®, Xeomin is also used to treat severe frown lines between the eyebrows and the glabella, the area just above the eyebrows, crow’s feet — area around the eyes, bunny lines — the sides of the nose, and dimpled chins. If you have found yourself wondering about the differences between these two products, which one is right for you, and if there are other procedures that you should be considering as well, then continue reading and learn how Natura Med Spa in Parkland can help you regain the youthful appearance you want.

At Natura Med Spa, we specialize in providing that natural, youthful look that fits you perfectly and is not exaggerated. Nearly 95 percent of our patients who routinely receive BOTOX®, Xeomin, or Dysport injections prefer the natural look. If you prefer to have a more motionless, or frozen look, we can also provide those results. With tens of thousands of medical aesthetic treatments performed since 2006, the practitioners at Natura MedSpa know which opposing muscles to inject, and which to avoid. Performing a BOTOX® procedure is both an art and a science, which is why our practitioners have earned the highest credentials, achieved the highest levels of certifications, and received the highest five star reviews.

What BOTOX® Offers

Facial Benefits

The face has 43 muscles. BOTOX® is an injectable and is primarily used to treat frown lines, creases in the forehead, and crow’s feet. It can also be used to treat wrinkles that form around the lips, on the lower face, and in downturned smiles. What was originally created to treat muscle spasms has quickly seen a rise in usage as a powerful tool in a variety of cosmetic procedures. It is injected into the face in a nonsurgical fashion, which means that there is no downtime either for surgery prep or recover. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to temporarily get rid of unwanted wrinkles or fine lines, then this could be the option you’re looking for. It is an FDA-approved procedure for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, primarily on your face. Administered correctly, BOTOX® can address the areas where you have fine lines while keeping the surrounding muscles nice and perky. Don’t let wrinkles get you down, call Natura Med Spa and let us help you regain the look you want.

Cost Effective

When people think about cosmetic appointments, they immediately think of incredibly expensive injections or surgical procedures. The good news is that BOTOX® is actually one of the most affordable cosmetic procedures available today. Injections range between $170 and $500 depending on a number of different factors. If you choose to stack some of the other available procedures that we offer, the cost may vary. We will talk about the benefits of stacking the services that we offer a bit later.

If you are tired of seeing wrinkles and fine lines on your face every time that you look in a mirror, then you should consider scheduling a microneedling and BOTOX® procedure with us at our spa-like aesthetic center. Our staff is trained to specifically address any questions or concerns that you may have. Your satisfaction with the outcome of any procedure is always our highest priority. Call Natura Med Spa today to schedule your free consultation and learn about all that we have to offer you!


BOTOX® and Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a cosmetic procedure that generates the production of new collagen and skin tissue for an overall smoother and more toned appearance. As you might guess from the description, it is used primarily on the face, and it can be used to treat scars, wrinkles, and large pores.

Microneedling is still minimally invasive and therefore requires no downtime. While BOTOX® helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from overactive muscles, microneedling helps to generate collagen production. Combined, these two procedures can help you achieve the youthful, firm look that you want. At Natura Med Spa, serving Parkland, Coral Springs, and Boca Raton, we know exactly what procedures will help you get the outcome that you desire. Call and speak with our staff today and let us know what we can do for you.

How They Work Together For You

It is important for you to understand that while BOTOX® and microneedling can work together to create the firm and youthful appearance that you want, they should not be done at the same time. While microneedling is minimally invasive, it does penetrate the skin in order to generate new collagen and tissue. Due to this process, your skin will need time before you can have your BOTOX® procedure. BOTOX® is an injectable and therefore, it needs to be administered to intact skin only. We are more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your exact goals and desired outcomes in order to help you determine which procedures you wish to choose and in which order you want them performed. Call our office today and schedule your free consultation.

As we age, our body does not produce as much collagen as it did when we were younger. In fact, collagen production begins to slow down in our mid-20s and continues to slow down after age 30. From that point, the levels of collagen in our skin begin to drop by approximately one to two percent per year. A lack of collagen causes our skin to weaken, become thinner, and sag. Since collagen is the primary agent that helps our faces to look youthful, you can understand why people would not only want to slow down the loss of collagen, but also try to find ways to regenerate the production of this important protein. Microneedling may be the perfect solution to this problem. We are sure that you have questions about this procedure and we look forward to speaking with you when you schedule your free consultation at Natura Med Spa today.

BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers

What Are Dermal Fillers

BOTOX® and dermal fillers are a special combination that many people choose when they come to our spa-like aesthetic center. BOTOX® helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines because it relaxes muscle activity wherever it is injected. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, help to “fill in” the area where the wrinkle is located. The filler is injected below the surface of the skin, and it essentially restores a much smoother appearance in your skin. As you can see, these two injectables are very different, but it is their differences that make them such wonderfully complementary procedures. The combination of these two injectables produces exceptional results and is quickly growing in popularity.

While dermal fillers help to fill areas that have a sagging appearance, they can also help to augment areas in the cheeks and chin and jawline, which many people prefer over a surgical approach to augmentation. Because they are injectables and not surgery, dermal fillers offer freedom from the time it takes to prepare for surgery, as well as the downtime required for healing. The procedure itself can be completed in as little as ten minutes, which means that the patient can immediately return to their normal daily activities.

BOTOX® + Dermal Fillers + Microneedling = Amazing Results

Now that you know a little bit about what BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and microneedling have to offer, let’s take a look at what they can do when combined, or stacked. If you are looking for amazing, natural results, then you need to seriously consider scheduling a stacked services procedure at Natura Med Spa. If you are trying to regain your youthful appearance, then this particular combination of procedures will offer the exceptional results you want to achieve. Just because our body does not produce as much collagen as we age, it doesn’t mean that we have to accept the wrinkles and fine lines that seem to suddenly multiply across our face. Let us know how we can help you fight the signs of aging and turn back the hands of time.

BOTOX® vs. Xeomin vs. Dysport

The Ultimate Wrinkle-Reduction Treatment!

BOTOX®, Xeomin, and Dysport are neuromodulators, which means that they are substances that alter nerve impulse transmissions. Because of this, they are used to treat wrinkles between the eyebrows and glabella. The glabella is the smooth part of the forehead just above and between the eyebrows. They will eradicate lines on the forehead, minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, and treat bunny lines, the fine lines that can form around the nose.


The main difference between Xeomin and BOTOX® or Dysport is that Xeomin contains just one ingredient: botulinum toxin A. Each of these products has a slightly different manufacturing process, which may lead to potential, yet subtle, clinical differences.

Of the three, Xeomin is the only purified substance with absolutely no additives. The benefit of Xeomin’s pure form is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to it. Unfortunately, some patients have developed antibodies in response to injections from BOTOX® and Dysport, which can make them less effective.

Low Cost

Another advantage of Xeomin is that it is based on a newer technology, which allows it to be stored without refrigeration. Due to this fact, the cost of storing and transporting Xeomin is lower than it is for the other two products, which may afford a lower price for the client.

What You Can Expect


In a blind study of 300 patients, no difference was evident when comparing the results of Xeomin and BOTOX®. A seasonal difference, however, can play a role in how our bodies metabolize a neuromodulator. Therefore, changing to a new modulator during different seasons may be the primary factor in perceived results. If you are concerned about whether or not you should change the modulator that you have been using, as well as choosing the right time for a change, then be sure to ask this question, and any others you may have during your free consultation with us at Natura Med Spa.

Dosage and Results

BOTOX®and Xeomin require the same dosage when injected, whereas Dysport requires approximately double the dose. The visibility of results varies with each product. Results from Dysport will be visible approximately 24 hours after the procedure, while results from BOTOX® appear at three days, and Xeomin results appear a day later at four days following the injection. Some people report a difference in how long the effects last, with the average time frame landing around three months.

Possible Side Effects

According to IAPAM, the International Association of Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine, Dysport has been shown to “drift” more than BOTOX®. This drift increases the chances of an accidental droopy eyelid or unintentional relaxation of a neighboring muscle due to diffusion of the product. Botox has been around the longest, and therefore the brand is more recognized. Xeomin and Dysport were FDA approved for facial applications in 2010 and 2009 respectively.
