Dr. Marta Rendon of the Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine of Boca Raton is excited to offer her patients a variety of injectables to help in improving their appearance. Many patients who are interested in a non-invasive method of reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face are introduced to an injection called Botox.
Botox, made of botulinum toxin type A, has been used for decades for a number of medical benefits. Injections can help with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the underarms), chronic migraine headaches, and cervical dystonia. This medication works by blocking nerve impulses to muscles, which results in fewer contractions. Botox can reduce the contraction of muscles in the face that results in lines and wrinkles, thus smoothing the skin and providing patients with a way to reverse the signs of aging.
Botox treatment is an extremely effective method of diminishing deep-set lines and wrinkles on the face, including glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The results of Botox injections can be enjoyed for several months before additional treatments are necessary. Most patients can preserve their youthful appearance with three to four injections throughout the year. While Botox and other cosmetic injectables cannot stop the signs of aging, they can definitely result in slower formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Patients who are of good overall health are the best candidates for Botox and our other brand, Dysport. Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that are FDA-approved for cosmetic use and can allow patients to rejuvenate their appearance. Botox and Dysport can also be used with dermal filler injectables to achieve a complete liquid facelift.
Patients in the Boca Raton area interested in learning more about Botox and other injectables available through the Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine are encouraged to contact Dr. Marta Rendon today to schedule a consultation visit. During this appointment, patients can speak with her regarding the various anti-aging methods available through her state-of-the-art dermatological facility for the best aesthetic benefits.
