Discover a More Youthful You with Expert Botox Injections & Medical-Grade Skincare Treatments
Eliminate Fine Lines & Wrinkles with Botox & Customized Skincare
Regardless of how diligent your cleansing and moisturizing routine is, you might notice fine lines around your eyes, mouth, or creases on your forehead. That’s because, as we age, collagen production starts to slow and our skin begins to lose elasticity, causing sagging skin and wrinkles.
Because your face is always your first impression, these little signs of aging can greatly affect your confidence and self-esteem. Dr. Rodarte and her team of licensed health providers at Activated Health & Wellness invite you to look as young as you feel again with Botox and customized skincare treatments. Botox is the safe, FDA approved treatment that has been used for years to give men and women a fresh, vibrant, youthful appearance.
Dr. Rodarte customizes plans for all her patients to treat their specific areas of concern and ensure that the result looks beautiful and natural.

What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox is a brand name for a neurotoxin that is used in cosmetic and medical treatments. It works by temporarily paralyzing or weakening the muscles that are causing wrinkles. The neurotoxin blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, making them relax.
Is Botox safe and are there any side effects?
Botox is FDA approved and considered safe when used in appropriate amounts by a qualified medical provider. The potential side effects of Botox are minimal, but may include temporary bruising, swelling, and redness in the treatment area. Less common side effects include headache, flu-like symptoms, and temporary muscle weakness or drooping in the treated area.
Who is a good candidate for Botox?
Individuals who are in good overall health and would like to eliminate or lessen facial lines and wrinkles are good candidates for Botox. Botox is not recommended for individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a neuromuscular disorder, or have an infection or skin condition in the treatment area.
How long does Botox last?
The effects of Botox typically last for three to six months, after which the treatment can be repeated if desired.
Is Botox painful?
Botox injections can be slightly uncomfortable, but this can be minimized with the use of topical numbing cream or ice. The needles used for the injections are very fine, and most individuals report minimal discomfort.
Are there other neurotoxins used besides Botox?
Yes. Xeomin, Dysport and Jeuveau are other forms that can also be used like Botox. We can help you pick which may be optimal for your results.
