addressing the signs of aging is a common reason that patients in and around the area of Washington, DC visit the team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess and the dedicated staff at this practice encourage patients to learn about non-invasive ways to address fine lines, wrinkles and folds on the face. Instead of undergoing plastic surgery, patients with mild to moderate imperfections of the skin can address these issues with injectables.
Injectables typically used for enhancing the skin and reducing the appearance of etched-in fine lines and wrinkles include soft tissue fillers (dermal fillers). These injections are made right into the wrinkles and folds to add almost instant volume. Some formulations also stimulate the production of collagen to provide lasting results that can keep the skin looking great for several years.
Soft tissue fillers are completely safe to use and all the cosmetic injectables used in our practice are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Some of the brands available include:
Some soft tissue fillers are better for certain areas of the face than others. For example, one may be better at reducing marionette lines while another is better for fine lines around the eyes. Patients have the opportunity to combine soft tissue fillers for an all-over “liquid face lift.”
Soft tissue fillers are administered during a single appointment and in most cases, within minutes, patients will notice dramatic results. This is because many of these fillers provide instant volume known to last for several months before reinjection is necessary.
