Enhancing the face is one request of many patients who visit the practice of board certified dermatologist Dr. Cheryl Burgess. At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, many patients are able to achieve aesthetic results with non-invasive options such as injectables. Injectables are used at many dermatologic practices in the Annapolis, MD and Washington, DC area to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that may be contributing to an aging face. Enhancing the facial area with injectables is commonly done by both men and women to avoid having to undergo surgeries such as a cosmetic face lift.
Two common solutions for aging skin include Juvéderm Ultra® and Juvéderm Voluma®. These injectables are made with hyaluronic acid and are combined with lidocaine for comfort. Both Juvéderm Ultra® and Juvéderm Voluma® are used in specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, to add distinct improvements in volume. They can also be used on areas such as the lips because their thicker construction allows them to add more volume than other injectables.
Juvéderm Ultra® and Juvéderm Voluma® are both available at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team of professionals can use these and many other injections to enhance the beauty of the face and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, therefore smoothing the skin and making it look better than ever!
Most patients are appropriate candidates for treatments such as these. Our injectables are FDA-approved for cosmetic enhancement. Patients rest in our treatment chair while Dr. Cheryl Burgess administers the gel into the specific areas of the face to achieve immediate results. These work differently from other injections such as neuromodulators like Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport®, which focus on the muscle contractions that result in the development of dynamic folds and wrinkles.
Patients around the areas of Annapolis, MD and Washington, DC are welcome to contact our team of professionals at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery to discuss the possibilities of enhancing the skin with solutions such as Juvéderm Voluma® and Juvéderm Ultra®.
