Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery who is here to assist patients in looking and feeling their absolute best. She understands that many patients want to combat the unwanted signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, but do not want to visit a plastic surgeon for invasive procedures. This is when her team may suggest the advantages of using injectables to enhance the face and reduce the appearance of folds and wrinkles present on the skin.
Injectables have been used for many years to enhance the skin, and that is why many patients enjoy using treatments such as Dysport® to achieve a more youthful appearance. Dysport® is a neuromodulator that is fabricated from botulinum toxin type A, a medication that can be used to relax muscle contractions. By doing this, the skin over the muscles can be smoothed out for facial enhancement.
Dysport® is just one of several neuromodulators available at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess also offers other popular brands such as Botox® and Xeomin®. Botox® and Xeomin® work in the same manner and can assist patients in achieving enhancement of their face, turning back the hands of time.
Dysport® is injected directly into specific muscles of the face to relax them and stop them from causing wrinkles and folds. This injectable is best used on areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes to address crow’s feet. Our professionals will help patients choose the best way to achieve a more youthful appearance with Dysport® or other neuromodulators used in our practice.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess encourages patients to consider injections such as Dysport® before resorting to more invasive surgeries with a plastic surgeon. Surgeries carry many risks including scarring and increased risk of infection, while also requiring extensive healing and downtime from work and social activities to ensure the best results. Instead of dealing with a plastic surgeon, we recommend patients discuss what can be done for mild to moderate wrinkles on the face before resorting to drastic measures.
