How neurotoxins treatment can help reduce the signs of aging in Jacksonville area patients
Neurotoxins, including Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, are popular ways for patients to reduce the appearance of folds on the face. When individuals are seeking a way to reduce the look of imperfections on the face with a less-invasive method than plastic surgery, these injectables are often suggested as a wonderful alternative.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all medications known as neurotoxins or neuromodulators. When injected into specific muscles of the face or body, they can reduce tension and contraction of these muscles, thus smoothing the skin and reducing the signs of aging. Botox itself is made of botulinum toxin type A, which has been safely used for many years in combating wrinkles and folds. It has also been used for medical conditions such as chronic migraines and headaches, cervical dystonia, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and overactive bladder. Our team can determine if these injections are best for aesthetic purposes depending on patients’ needs.
Dr. Mary Pentel of Southside Dermatology in Jacksonville encourages patients to learn more about neurotoxins treatment. Some patients may find that the combination of neurotoxin injections and other injectables such as dermal fillers can provide optimum results. This can be discussed during the initial consultation appointment. Our team works closely with patients to help them determine the best treatments for their specific concerns, and can make suggestions as to what we feel is best. Patients with mild to moderate signs of aging may benefit from injectables, while more severe cases may indeed require plastic surgery. We can assess the concerns during their first appointment and can provide realistic solutions and discuss the results that can be achieved using these methods.
