At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team provide several anti-aging solutions to patients. When individuals are searching for “fillers near me” in Annapolis, Maryland or Washington, DC, they are often led to her practice to learn about the many different aesthetic options readily available to combat the signs of aging and enjoy facial enhancement.
Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport® are a special type of anti-aging injectable known as a neuromodulator. They are used to address the muscle tension known for creating dynamic wrinkles and folds on the skin. These injections are made with botulinum toxin type A, which has been FDA approved for both medical and cosmetic concerns. All three are available at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery and can be used in conjunction with fillers and collagen stimulators.
Dermal fillers are different from neuromodulators. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm are made with hyaluronic acid, a protein that attracts water molecules. This gel-like substance is injected directly into the fine lines and wrinkles of concern to add volume and smooth out the texture. They provide instantaneous results and patients are able to leave the practice with a rejuvenated appearance. Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with neuromodulators for amazing results.
Some patients, however, may do better with collagen stimulators. Sculptra and Radiesse are common collagen stimulators used to help add volume by improving the production of collagen and elastin. This provides longer lasting results and as with fillers, can be used with neuromodulators for a complete “liquid face lift.”
