Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery is an Annapolis, MD area professional who believes that everyone should be able to put their best face forward every day. When individuals are dealing with the unwanted signs of aging, they may feel as though there is no method of “aging gracefully” outside of invasive plastic surgery. However, Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who can help with injectables through her state-of-the-art practice. One method of facial rejuvenation available is Botox®.
Botox® treatment can help in addressing areas where fine lines, wrinkles and folds develop due to muscle contractions. Botox® uses botulinum toxin type A, which is completely safe and FDA approved, to relax muscle contractions and limit them from etching deep lines and folds into the skin. Patients will not see immediate results but will see the depth of these wrinkles become shallower over the course of several days as the skin begins to smooth.
Botox® has been used for many decades for both medical and cosmetic purposes and it continues to be a leading injectable available through board certified dermatologists in the Annapolis, MD area. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is proud to offer Botox® along with other popular brands including Dysport ® and Xeomin®, which are also available in her practice.
Botox® and other injectables made from botulinum toxin type A are called neuromodulators as they block the communication of the nerves that result in muscle contractions. This limits their ability to tighten, thus providing facial rejuvenation. Botox® and the other injectables, Xeomin® and Dysport®, are used in specific treatment areas where fine lines and wrinkles develop due to these facial muscles and work best in areas such as around the eyes (for treating crow’s feet), on the forehead and between the eyebrows (to improve the glabellar lines or “frown lines”).
