Address under eye wrinkles and more with Botox and fillers in Silver Spring
Age has a funny way of imparting to us beneficial transformations as well as those which we would like to bypass. Case in point: wrinkles. As our skin ages right along with the rest of the body, it changes in ways that seem to make us appear far older than we really are. The development of visible lines on the forehead, under eye wrinkles and Crow’s feet, and drooping brows all affect the face in a way we may not like. For years, these concerns have been successfully addressed with Botox and dermal fillers. Men and women in the Silver Spring area can visit Washington Dermatology Center for outstanding anti-aging treatments.
What is Botox?
Botox has been called a wonder drug in the anti-aging arena. This injectable medication has been proven time and time again to be safe and effective at minimizing the appearance of some types of lines and wrinkles. On the upper part of the face, including around the eyes, wrinkles often appear as a result of facial expression. We use the same muscles over and over when we laugh, frown, squint, and make other expressions. In time, these muscles reach a point where they are in a constant state of contraction. The Botox drug, inserted into muscle tissue, causes relaxation and the subsequent smoothing of surface skin.
A combined effort for beautiful results
Depending on the extent of aesthetic concerns, Botox or Dysport may be combined with dermal fillers to produce the desired effect. Botox works on wrinkles by relaxing underlying muscles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, work on wrinkles by restoring volume that has been lost with age. When lines have formed around the mouth and chin, the cause is not contracted muscles but loose skin as a result of volume loss. Filling in the lines on the lower part of the face while relaxing the upper part of the face, we are able to achieve beautiful, more youthful skin.
Before cosmetic injectables were developed, individuals concerned with the signs of aging had nowhere to turn but cosmetic surgery. Today, more men and women are turning back the hands of time with minimally invasive care from their experienced dermatologist. Botox and other anti-aging treatments are gentle to the skin and require no downtime and no anesthesia. In a brief visit at Washington Dermatology Center, it is possible to take years off of your facial aesthetic.
