Is Botox right for you?

By Mark Pilatowski

Wrinkles don’t just form due to age, genes, gravity, or sun damage. Exaggerated expressions such as a beaming smile, a surprised face, or a furrowed brow? They come from that too.

Before we get into whether Botox® is right for you, it’s important to know that there are two main types of wrinkles we treat: Dynamic and static.

Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that are present when muscles move. They’re caused over time by the repeated contraction of muscles attached to the overlying skin. This results in physiological aging characterized by features such as wrinkling, loss of elasticity, laxity, and rough-textured appearance. 

Static wrinkles are wrinkles that are always present. They’re caused by damage to the skin from the sun, smoking, genetics, poor nutrition, or prolonged dynamic wrinkling. This results in photoaging, which shows up as freckles, liver spots, and hyperpigmentation. Wrinkle relaxers like Botox can minimize static lines and prevent dynamic wrinkles from progressing to static wrinkles.

At Peachy, our focus is on preventative skincare. We use wrinkle relaxers to help our clients prevent physiological signs of aging – crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and lines between their eyebrows – before they form. We’re also all about empowering you with knowledge because taking care of your skin is a lifelong journey. 

Ready to find out if a wrinkle prevention treatment is right for you? Let’s start with the fundamentals.

What are wrinkle relaxers and how do they work?

Wrinkle relaxers (neuromodulators such as Botox®, Jeuveau®, Xeomin®, Dysport®) work by gently relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Wrinkle relaxers are injected directly into the facial muscles. By gently relaxing those muscles, wrinkle relaxers can prevent dynamic wrinkles from becoming static wrinkles. 

Wrinkle relaxers are perfect for the prevention and treatment of crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and the lines between your eyebrows. Why? They slow wrinkle progression at whatever cadence you choose! The best part is how you look naturally refreshed and rejuvenated, without altering or changing your natural appearance. 

What’s the difference between wrinkle relaxers and Botox®?

Great question. Botox® is simply one option you can choose for a wrinkle prevention treatment!

The 4 FDA-approved preventative wrinkle relaxers Peachy offers include:

  • Botox®
  • Xeomin®
  • Jeuveau®
  • Dysport®

Not sure which option to choose? You and your Peachy Provider – a board-certified Nurse Practitioner – will work together to create a customized treatment plan that works best for you. 

How long does it take for Botox® wrinkle prevention to take effect and how long do results last?

5-10 days following your treatment, you will begin to see your lines soften. Results will fully develop within 2 weeks.

Botox® and other wrinkle prevention treatment options temporarily treat wrinkles like crow’s feet and forehead lines. The lines in the areas you inject are softer and less visible for 3-4 months following your treatment. 

What is Peachy’s approach to wrinkles?

⁣By using Botox®, Retinoids, and SPF in a targeted and personalized manner, we believe fine lines and wrinkles can be both treated and prevented. Our approach is grounded in science and does not alter or change your natural appearance.

Backed by science

Peachy is scientifically-backed wrinkle prevention designed for you to enjoy relaxed and minimized lines and wrinkles from a treatment you trust. Because when it comes to skincare, it seems like everyone has a “secret.” But us? Our secret is not really a secret — it’s just science.

Proprietary technology to develop a customized treatment plan for all clients

Peachy's Proprietary Wrinkle Prevention Technology

We want you to feel confident and comfortable in your skin. We do this by using our proprietary technology to get clear on your needs first. Then we design a personalized treatment plan with you based on your wrinkle prevention and desired facial movement goals.

Are your wrinkles dynamic or static? Do you need a refresh or complete rejuvenation? Is this your first Botox® appointment or are you familiar with the Peachy process?

During your consultation, your Peachy Provider will determine what (if any) wrinkle prevention is right for you. When it comes to your wrinkle prevention consultation and our recommendation, we consider your wants, your needs, and most importantly... your goals. 

Think clinical wrinkle prevention results without the clinic feel.

Flat rate pricing

Have you ever walked into a studio to get your fine lines treated and not known what the cost will be? Or worse, felt pressured to get more work done than you intended? It happens more than you think. 

But not at Peachy. 

Wrinkle relaxers are not a one size fits all experience. We don’t limit the number of units or push you to max out. We find what’s right for you so you can practice the long game with your skincare. 

That’s why we created a flat fee for our full wrinkle prevention treatment (Botox®, Xeomin®, Jeuveau®, Dysport®). Whether you only need a little touch-up or it takes a few additional doses to address your wrinkle-fighting needs, you pay $375.

No pressure and no surprises. Ever.
