The difference between fillers and neuromodulators
Dr. Cheryl Burgess, a board certified dermatologist in the Washington, DC area, understands how the signs of aging on the face can have a negative impact on self-esteem. Because of the development of fine lines and wrinkles, patients may begin to feel self-conscious. Thankfully, there are solutions for improving the texture and appearance of the skin that do not require surgical intervention. Many patients come to the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery seeking facial enhancement solutions to avoid the need for plastic surgery, and will often find it in the form of dermal fillers and neuromodulators.
Neuromodulators include Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport. These injectables are commonly used to relax muscle contractions resulting in a smoother texture to the skin and less noticeable fine lines and wrinkles. These injections are easily done in the dermatologist’s office and are an affordable way of rejuvenating one’s appearance.
However, other injectables, such as dermal fillers, are also widely popular. This is because they provide immediate results. These wrinkles fillers are used directly in the areas of concern and can last many months. Some patients are unsure whether they need dermal fillers, neuromodulators, or both.
Patients seeking wrinkle solutions that work can speak to the team of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Our team of professionals has the experience to provide reliable recommendations regarding the best way to address fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. For some patients dermal fillers may be the most effective option, while for others, neuromodulators may do the trick. In some situations, patients can combine both treatments for optimum results. All of these solutions can be discussed during a consultation with Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her staff.
