Are you looking for a simple, nonsurgical way to smooth away facial wrinkles? At the Rendon Center, we have a solution. Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are prescription treatment options for improving the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
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.
Dysport Injections And Botox Injections
Over ten million men and women have experienced the proven results of these treatments. Botox Cosmetic or Dysport treatment may be right for you if you are between 18 and 65 years old, and want to look your best. These injectable treatments are made from purified botulinum toxin, which is also used medically for muscular conditions.
Botox is just one of many injectables that are used by patients in the Deerfield Beach & Boca Raton area who want to enhance their appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles are common, unwelcome signs of aging that both men and women face when they begin to lose the natural collagen in their skin. Collagen loss means volume loss, and volume loss means increased skin laxity. Instead of having fine lines and wrinkles develop and make patients look older than they feel, the team at Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine may recommend non-invasive solutions for anti-aging such as Botox injections.
What Causes Wrinkles?
With time, repetitive movement of the forehead muscles and facial skin can cause lines between the eyebrows. Although these lines and wrinkles make you appear older, they can form at any age. Frequent movements such as squinting or frowning may cause them to develop in young adults.
What Are Dynamic Wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles form when your face is animated. Frowning, squinting into the sun, and other facial expressions can result in the formation of wrinkles. When you are younger and your face is relaxed, these wrinkles disappear. Over time, as your skin loses elasticity, the wrinkles become more pronounced, even when your face is at rest. The most common dynamic wrinkles include crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, horizontal lines across the forehead, and frown lines between your brows.
How Do Botox and Dysport Injections Work?
Botox Cosmetic or Dysport are injected into the rigid facial muscles that cause crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. They act as relaxants, smoothing the muscles, and hence, the lines. Treatment at the Rendon Center is comfortable and only takes about ten minutes. You can resume your normal activities with no downtime after Botox face injections and Dysport. Within days, dramatic results are visible.
Botox & Dysport are neuromodulators that work by targeting the muscles underneath the skin that result in dynamic wrinkles. A neuromodulator can control muscle contractions. When these muscle contractions are reduced, so is the depth of fine lines and wrinkles on specific areas of the face. Botox is best used in areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes to combat crow’s feet.
Botox is safe and FDA-approved for both medical and cosmetic use. It has been used over the years for conditions such as hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, temporomandibular joint disorder, and chronic headaches. It was found that it could also be used as an anti-aging solution and it became a popular cosmetic treatment for men and women alike. Using Botox can provide short-term results, with most patients being able to maintain their new look for approximately six months before reinjection is necessary. However, it is a wonderful way for patients with mild to moderate signs of aging to avoid invasive surgeries and still achieve a more youthful appearance.
Patients with mild to moderate wrinkles and folds may not be a good candidate for surgery but may benefit greatly from injectables such as Botox and Dysport. We recommend patients visit Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine to educate themselves further on the ways in which Botox can assist with the rejuvenation of the skin.

What Are The Benefits of Botox And Dysport?
Botox is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. Patients can resume their regular routine after the procedure. The side effects are minimal and include minor bruising and swelling at the injection site. This can often be minimized with the use of a cold compress.
What Is The Treatment Process Like?
During the treatment, your care provider at Rendon Center will carefully inject small amounts of Botox into precise locations along the muscles. The Botox helps to relax the muscle, erasing the wrinkle. Most patients see the full benefit of the treatment in three to seven days.
How Often Are Botox Injections Needed To Maintain Result?
To maintain the results of treatment, maintenance appointments are recommended every three to four months. Because individual results may vary, be sure to ask your doctor when you should schedule a follow-up appointment.
Can I Discontinue Treatment At Any Time?
You can choose to discontinue treatment at any time without long-term effects; facial lines will gradually return to their previous appearance.
Potential Risks of Botox and Dysport
When administered correctly, by a trained professional, the risks associated with Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are minimal. Your doctor will discuss any potential side effects with you, and advise you if there is any reason that you are not a good candidate (in which case, we can offer alternative cosmetic treatment). For the vast majority of patients, these injectable treatments are safe and effective. Call 561-750-0544 and schedule a consultation to learn more about your cosmetic enhancement options.
Who is a Candidate For Botox And Dysport?
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.
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a neuromodulator similar in composition to Botox and Dysport. It works in much the same way, blocking impulses from nerves that tell facial muscles to contract. Relaxed muscles provide a smoother foundation for skin, softening wrinkles.
What Areas Can Xeomin Treat?
Xeomin is approved by the FDA for treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, and our doctors use it off-label for effective wrinkle reduction in other facial areas, as well.
Treatment sessions typically take less than 30 minutes, and there is essentially no downtime. Patients begin to see improvement within a few days and results last three months or more.
