Patients in Agoura, CA ask a respected dermatologist about the benefits of Botox
Thanks to advances in dermatology, men and women can turn back the hands of time without surgery. After years of sun exposure, adults often seek treatments that restore their youthful appearance. Botox is one of many solutions. The prescription injection composed of a purified protein is one of the most popular treatments at the practice of Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos in Westlake Village, CA. The respected dermatologist and her caring team see patients from Agoura and the surrounding areas. Patients often ask about the benefits of Botox. It depends on the areas they wish to have treated.
Botox is used to treat horizontal lines above the brows (forehead furrows), vertical creases between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and creases near outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). Sun exposure and tobacco use are common causes of the lines. Wrinkles develop as collagen depletes. Facial expressions and squinting can leave unwanted lines caused by muscle contractions. We use Botox to relax the muscles and stop them from contracting. The result is smoother skin in the treated areas.
To explore if Botox is right for you, we recommend scheduling a consultation. We will review your medical history including past and current medical conditions and medications. If you are a candidate for treatment, we will devise a treatment plan. We typically recommend treatment every three to four months for optimal results. After one session that lasts about an hour, results can appear within days.
We provide various treatments to reverse the signs of aging such as dermal fillers. Unlike Botox, we use dermal fillers to fill creases and restore volume. We use Radiesse to replenish facial volume and smooth laugh lines (nasolabial folds). Restylane and Perlane can reduce fine lines. Restylane is the only dermal filler approved for lip enhancement. Juvéderm Voluma can create volume where it has been lost in areas such as the cheekbones and cheeks.
Restoring a youthful appearance to the skin can renew confidence and boost self-esteem. Do you want to turn back the hands of time without an invasive treatment? Botox, or one of our dermal fillers, may be the ideal solution. To explore your candidacy for either treatment, schedule a consultation with us, call 805-379-3376.
