Anti-aging treatments available in Rockville area dermatology
The signs of aging are often a concern for patients who want to maintain their youthful appearance. Dr. Ron Prussick and the associates of Washington Dermatology Center work with patients to help them choose the best possible anti-aging treatments for turning back the hands of time. Instead of speaking to a plastic surgeon about a face lift or other invasive surgery, patients should consider alternative options especially when dealing with mild to moderate aging skin. Below is a sampling of what is available at our practice for patients in and around the areas of Frederick and Rockville, Maryland:
Neuromodulators – At Washington Dermatology Center, neuromodulators are often chosen for dynamic wrinkles and folds caused by muscle contractions. The brands available in our practice are Botox and Dysport.
Dermal fillers – Many patients love the ease of using dermal fillers. These hyaluronic acid gels are injected directly into the problem areas for immediate improvement. Our practice offers popular brands including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Belotero.
Chemical peels – While chemical peels are often used to improve skin tone and bring forth more youthful skin cells, the more aggressive peels can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles present on the face.
Laser and light-based therapies – Today’s technology allows dermatologists to enhance the appearance of the face using modern advancements including lasers, lights, and even photodynamic therapy. Many of these can provide gradual improvements in the skin’s tone and texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles while giving the skin that amazing, youthful glow!
Who is a candidate for anti-aging treatments?
Dr. Ron Prussick encourages patients with aging skin to make an appointment at Washington Dermatology Centers to learn more about these options and to decide which treatment may be best for their needs. He is committed to providing patients with alternatives to expensive and invasive plastic surgery – especially for patients who have aging skin in the earlier stages. Some of these treatments are more preventative and can slow the signs of aging over time, though they are not a way to completely stop the process.
