Cosmetic facial treatments such as fillers can greatly reduce the signs of aging for Frederick area patients
At the Washington Dermatology Center, patients seeking cosmetic facial treatments have a wide range of solutions to choose from. In addition to neuromodulators, chemical peels, and laser-based therapies, patients can utilize anti-aging options such as dermal fillers.
What is a Dermal Filler?
A dermal filler is an injectable formula that is used directly in the areas where there is volume loss, skin laxity, or fine lines and wrinkles. These injectables are like gels that provide instant results right in the dermatology office. They may include some of the most popular brands such as:
Washington Dermatology Center offers a few different types of dermal fillers, which include:
Each brand of dermal filler has its own benefits. Some work better with fine lines and wrinkles while others are better suited for larger folds in the facial area. Additionally, many of these dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with other treatments such as Botox and Dysport– which are also available at our practice. Dr. Ron Prussick and his team encourage patients to ask about these products to determine which one is best for them.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are often a formulation of hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in the body that can be absorbed over the course of time without any side effects. The injections are done right in our practice and patients will enjoy the results for several months before they notice the results diminishing. At this point, patients are encouraged to make another appointment with their dermatologist for re-treatment to maintain the results they achieved at their first visit.
Another benefit of dermal fillers is affordability. Finances are always a concern when it comes to considering anti-aging treatments. Instead of undergoing expensive plastic surgery that carries many risks, patients can choose simple, convenient injections every few months to address the mild to moderate signs of aging.
