Your dermatologist corrects frown lines with Botox treatments in the Frederick, MD area
Botox treatments have become so popular that the product is now familiar in just about every household in America. The injectable solution, a derivative of diluted botulinum toxin, has been safely used for over a decade in the treatment of facial and neck wrinkles. The way Botox works is by relieving the constant contracted state of much-used muscles around the eyes and on the forehead. When the underlying muscles relax, overlying skin is able to smooth out for a more youthful appearance.
Washington Dermatology Center has been providing cosmetic Botox anti-aging treatments to men and women from the Potomac area for many years. We encourage patients to make the most of modern dermatologic care by considering various factors.
Have an end result in mind
Botox and other cosmetic procedures are designed to rejuvenate a person’s appearance, but what he or she wishes to accomplish must be the driving force of our care plan. Botox injections could be described as the creation of a work of art. Based on your vision, your dermatologist can create an arch in the brow, smooth frown lines or soften the lips. Taking your vision and turning it into reality takes skill, which our practitioners have.
Work with a trusted practitioner
Due to the immense popularity of Botox, this beneficial treatment can be found at a number of different practices. Not only do board certified dermatologists offer Botox. Today, med-spas and even some dental offices will offer this service. We understand that our patients seek out Botox and other aesthetic services because they wish to achieve specific results. At Washington Dermatology Center, services are provided by Dr. Prussick himself or a trusted, experienced member of our dermatologic team. After carefully listening to your concerns and goals, we will design treatment to achieve beautifully natural results.
Prevent the signs of aging with early treatment
Botox can achieve rejuvenating effects on people of various ages. However, the results have been shown to be wonderfully significant in those who act early, before fine lines turn into deep creases. When Botox is administered in this way, it is possible to achieve dramatic results with less product, versus when lines and creases have become more visible.
Botox treatments take only a few minutes to complete after you have discussed your desires with your doctor. Within about thirty minutes, treatment is completed and you may return to your normal activities with no significant side effects. Though some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising at injection sites or a slight headache, these side effects fade quickly. The important factor to consider when it comes to timing pertains more to the final result than immediate side effects. Though Botox goes to work right away to relax muscles, ultimate results typically become more visible in the week following treatment. If you want to look and feel your best for a wedding, big meeting, or other special event, schedule Botox treatments two weeks before the big day. Muscle relaxation from Botox treatments lasts about four months, after which touch-up treatments may be schedule to preserve a more youthful look.
