Annapolis dermatologist describes Botox®
At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we believe patients in and around the Annapolis area deserve only the best cosmetic treatments through a board certified dermatologist. Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team offer a wide range of injectables as anti-aging solutions and she encourages patients to take the time to learn about the benefits of Botox®.
Botox® is a neuromodulator formulated with botulinum toxin type A. This medication is known for inhibiting muscle contractions. It has been used for decades for medical conditions. However, it has also been shown to provide facial enhancement. By injecting Botox® into certain muscles in the face, folds, wrinkles are smoothed out. This allows the skin to be smoother and look more youthful.
Botox® is most commonly used on the upper portion of the face, typically addressing situations such as crow’s feet, folds on the forehead, and the “elevens” which appear between the eyebrows when one scowls or frowns. These are all muscle-related creases that can be reduced in appearance with Botox® injections.
Botox® is not the only brand of neuromodulator available in our practice. Dr. Cheryl Burgess also provides Xeomin® and Dysport®, both comparable in effectiveness and price. During a consultation appointment, patients can learn about each neuromodulator, as well as dermal fillers and collagen stimulators, which can be used together to provide the ultimate “liquid face lift.” Patients who have mild to moderate signs of aging may benefit from injectables and avoid the need for invasive surgical procedures used to combat fine lines and wrinkles due to skin laxity.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess has two conveniently located practices in Annapolis, MD and Washington, DC and encourages patients to contact her facility to learn more about the most advanced dermatological solutions available to patients in and around the area. She wants her patients to understand the full range of services available to them for facial enhancement. Her aesthetic services are available to new patients and she encourages people to educate themselves further on injections such as Botox® to improve the way they look.
