Westlake Village dermatologist describes Botox injections
There are many non-invasive ways of attaining a more youthful appearance. Patients in the Westlake Village area struggling with the signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds on the face may be interested in speaking with Dr. Panagotacos to educate themselves on the variety of methods available for rejuvenation of the skin. Patients with frown lines, lines between the eyebrows, and wrinkles around the eyes may be appropriate candidates for Botox injections.
Botox has gained popularity over the years as one of the most desired and effective anti-aging solutions available. Injectables such as Botox and Dysport are made of botulinum toxin type A. This medication is used to paralyze the muscles in which it is injected. This can cause a desired relaxation that results in smoother skin. Dynamic folds on the face can be reduced in depth and appearance with just one treatment. Patients can rest easy knowing that this product is FDA approved for both medical and cosmetic treatments. Botox has been around for decades and has been used in the past for treatments of many medical concerns including chronic headaches, temporomandibular joint disorder, hyperhidrosis (also referred to as excessive sweating), and even urinary incontinence. Many trials and evaluations have been done on this injectable over the years to ensure safety and effectiveness.
Botox injections can last several months, but they must be continually reinjected to maintain the results. This is not a long-term solution, but can be used for mild to moderate cases until the need for cosmetic surgeries arise. However, many patients are happy with the results they obtain with this particular method and regularly visit Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, MD for continued treatment.
