Why Choose Botox Treatment?
Our patients love looking and feeling great after receiving one of many cosmetic procedures done in our dental office in Delray Beach. We help patients overcome the signs of aging every day in our practice. That's why we are offering one of the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatments available. Botox Cosmetic has been known to enhance a beautiful smile and is a great addition to your scheduled cosmetic dentistry procedure.
What is Botox treatment?
Botox is a cosmetic injection containing botulinum toxin.
It is a safe way to reduce unwanted wrinkles temporarily. Because it is a temporary cosmetic treatment, in order to get the best results, a patient will need to repeat the procedure, much like teeth whitening procedures. It has been approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe frown lines and is used to treat other symptoms such as migraines.
What are the benefits of Botox treatments?
Besides the obvious benefits of having Botox Cosmetic treatments, such as removing unwanted facial wrinkles and frown lines, there are a few others to mention. When used along with your cosmetic dental procedure, Botox Cosmetic can:
- Reduce muscle tension that causes headaches
- Reduces the effects of migraines
- Reduces the effects of Myofacial Pain Syndrome (MPS)
- Reduce the signs of aging
- Help renew self-confidence
How does Botox Cosmetic work?
The Botox injections weakens muscles that are responsible for age-related wrinkles and unsightly lines and interrupts the motor nerve endings. Your doctor will perform a series of injections with a small needle. The typical injection sites are the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region), around the corner of the eyes (crow's feet) and the area around the lips. Once the nerve endings have been interrupted, the muscle is unable to contract, making this treatment a "muscle relaxer" that temporarily stops the wrinkles in the skin from forming.
Does Botox hurt?
Patients who have this treatment typically do not complain about pain due to the size of the needle used. The needle is very tiny and the area can be numbed with a topical treatment prior to injections. In most cases, patients have reported not feeling any pain at all during the injection process. Our doctor has many years of experience injecting Botox and he understands that your comfort is priority.
What are the side effects of Botox?
Botox injections are typically safe when performed by experienced doctors such as Dr. Renee Litvak. While most patients do not experience any negative side effects of Botox injections, there have been reported cases outside of our office of allergic reactions, eyelid drooping, crooked smile, rash, headache, bruising and redness. This is why it is important to choose a doctor who is an expert at delivering injections.
When will I see results from Botox treatments?
Botox treatments in the office typically take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on each case. Treatments can provide up to 4 months of great results, reducing wrinkles and frown lines. Typically, a patient may start to see results within 3-4 days. However, your treatment can take up to 14 days to take its full effect in some cases. Please make sure to wait until the 14 day mark before assessing the full treatment results.

Juvederm & Fillers
During the aging process, our skin tends to dry out and lose it’s natural HA, or Hyaluronic Acid. When you experience the loss of this acid that helps keep us looking youthful and vibrant, wrinkled and dry skin is the result. Sometimes, the loss of HA comes before our time and we feel like we’re losing our youthfulness before we should, which is why many people turn to fillers and Botox for help.
Because of this demand, our Delray Beach dental practice is proud to offer the #1 selling hyaluronic acid dermal filler in the United States, JUVEDERM for our patients. Dr. Renee Litvak has had extensive training in this form of non-surgical facial treatment as well as Botox treatments.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a gel filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA) which is found naturally in the skin. This acid naturally delivers much needed nutrients to the help our skin retain moisture, keep our skin soft, and add volume where needed. Because of the aging process, our skin tends to lose the young look and feel we are so accustomed to. Loss of elasticity, softness and volume are a few of the aging signs that create a flattened look to our cheeks and a sagging appearance to the skin. Juvederm adds the volume needed under the skin to help achieve the lift and contouring desired for a more natural, younger look.
What is the benefit of Juvederm?
You will be left with a clinically proven natural, younger look and feel that helps restore the skin’s volume and smooths away unwanted wrinkles and folds in the face. Restoring and rejuvenating your face to its more youthful appearance has never been easier than with Juvederm treatment. It is the only FDA-approved filler that typically lasts up to one year with a single treatment. In addition to treating a patient to enhance a more youthful appearance, the dermal filler is also used to treat high lip lines and uneven lips.
How is Juvederm administered?
Our highly trained doctor, Dr. Renee Litvak will administer the dermal filler at the site of the wrinkle, thus smoothing out the tissue and pushing out the unwanted creases in the face. Your doctor may massage the injected area after the application. The procedure is quick and easy and often only takes approximately 15 minutes.
