Can Potomac, MD area patients use Botox® for the treatment of glabellar furrows?
Botox® is a popular injectable that has been used for several decades for both medical and cosmetic concerns. When patients are dealing with the signs of aging and want to reverse wrinkles and folds on the face that make them look older than they truly are, Dr. Ron Prussick of the Washington Dermatology Consultants may suggest they consider the advantages of Botox® injections.
Botox® is an injectable made with botulinum toxin type A, which has been used for the treatment of medical conditions such as cervical dystonia, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and even overactive bladder. It has also been found to be a wonderful anti-aging tool. This medication can help reduce muscle contractions, and when injected into specific areas of the face, it can smooth out wrinkles and folds that have developed over time due to tightening of the muscles from frowning or smiling. This is why Botox® is a great solution for the treatment of glabellar furrows.
Glabellar furrows are the “eleven” lines that develop between the eyebrows when patients frown or furrow their eyebrows. Over time, these dynamic movements can result in the formation of these wrinkles that can become unsightly. Patients who have glabellar furrows and want to reduce them can do so with Botox® injections.
Botox® can be used on nearly anyone. Patients of the Potomac area are encouraged to schedule a consultation visit and examination with Dr. Ron Prussick to find out how they can achieve effective results with this particular injectable. Patients are also excited to learn that they can achieve a full “liquid facelift” by using both Botox® and other injectables such as Juvéderm®, which can be used to add volume to lines and wrinkles elsewhere on the face. When combined, patients will find that they are able to achieve an even more youthful appearance and enjoy the advantages of anti-aging options such as these.
