How Potomac, MD area patients can use face fillers
Rejuvenating the face can be done with surgical procedures such as face lifts, but this treatment is invasive and expensive. Additionally, they are not suggested for patients with mild signs of aging. Instead, Dr. Ron Prussick of the Potomac area may suggest an alternative for patients known as facial fillers.
Facial fillers, also referred to as dermal fillers, are injectables that are used on these specific areas of the face to add volume. Most are fabricated from hyaluronic acid, a protein that is known for attracting water wherever it is injected. Because of this, patients are able to make fine lines and wrinkles look shallow—and in some cases, even smooth out the texture of the skin.
Dermal fillers commonly used at Washington Dermatology Center include:
Dr. Ron Prussick and his associates can use many of these fillers for fine lines and wrinkles on the face, including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Glabellar lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead folds
- Smile lines
- Lipstick lines
- Marionette folds
Dermal fillers are injected during a single appointment. Patients will discuss their skin concerns with their dermatologist during their examination, and then Dr. Ron Prussick will discuss with patients the options available to them. Once patients have chosen the best injectable, just a few minutes are needed for the treatment to be administered. Patients can go back to their day with little interruption and no downtime. Though some redness and itching may occur at the injection sites, this is short-term and only lasts a few hours after treatment.
