Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist in Washington who provides a wide range of solutions for rejuvenating the skin and avoiding the unwanted signs of aging. Skin laxity is a common issue and reason for patients developing etched in fine lines and wrinkles and is a result of the loss of collagen in the skin. Volume loss leaves skin loose and susceptible to developing the etched in fine lines and wrinkles that make patients look older than they feel. There are methods of reducing the appearance of these signs of aging and the team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery has solutions such as dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are popular because they are fast, simple, non-invasive and affordable. Belotero is one of the hyaluronic acid fillers that are used to provide lasting results for etched in lines. Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid, a gel that adds volume directly to the etched in wrinkles it is injected into, offering patients results the minute they step out of the dermatologist’s office. Belotero injections may provide longer results, but the results are not achieved right away, they can take several months to become noticeable.
Belotero is just one of many dermal fillers and injectables available through the practice of Dr. Cheryl Burgess. She provides neuromodulators such as Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport® that can limit muscle contractions and smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the upper portion of the face. She also offers collagen stimulators such as Sculptra that can provide long-term results but can take time to make a noticeable change. Other dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid include Juvéderm and Restylane, all available through the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery.
