Improving your image with Botox treatment in Frederick
For ages, humans have wished for – and searched for – the proverbial “fountain of youth.” Finding no cure at all to the gradual changes that occur in the body, science has devised a number of solutions to combat the signs of aging.
Our bodies are complex, and every one of us reacts differently to the various factors that affect the body. No sole solution works for every person, or in every situation. No single product or procedure can address every need that develops. At Washington Dermatology Center, Dr. Prussick and our team of dermatology associates provide in-depth evaluations and consultations for each patient so that we may determine the most suitable treatment plan to address specific needs. In many cases, Botox may be included in a treatment plan.
Facial aging explained
Men and women who visit our office in Frederick or Bethesda often lament on the skin they had in their youth. Indeed, youthful, healthy skin is smooth and firm, with sufficient elasticity. As we become adults, we will notice the gradual formation of lines around the eyes and mouth, and other areas on the face. Affected by time and several other factors, the skin continues to change with age, becoming loose, saggy, and less elastic. There are several reasons for these changes:
- Elasticity is lost when elastin and collagen breakdown.
- Decreased collagen production coupled with depletion in the fat layer that typically plumps facial contours leads to a loss in facial volume.
- Repetitive muscle contractions, over the years, lead to pleats in the skin. At first, expression lines are dynamic, and they disappear when the face relaxes. In time, however, they become a fixture on the face.
- Affected by the sun, dehydration, and other factors, the skin loses its smooth texture and laxity.
Solutions for more vibrant skin
Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm or Belotero are often seen as the most effective solution for all types of wrinkles. Though fillers are certainly effective at accomplishing certain goals, they are not necessarily the best form of treatment in every scenario. Dr. Prussick treats skin for natural, beautiful results. This is possible by addressing the factors that are causing an aged appearance.
Dermal fillers are used to restore lost volume by stimulating the production of depleted substances such as collagen or hyaluronic acid. Botox is able to accomplish goals not met with other forms of cosmetic treatment. This product can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles formed by muscle contractions. Carefully performed treatment by your experienced dermatologist achieves a naturally beautiful rejuvenation – no “frozen” look..
