Neuromodulators Treatment at Washington, DC, and Annapolis, MD

Patients who want to combat the unwanted signs of aging are welcome to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery to discuss the endless possibilities with non-invasive injectables. One common solution for wrinkles and folds on the face is that of neuromodulators.

Neuromodulators include recognizable brands such as Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. All three of these work in the same manner but relaxing muscle contractions and therefore smoothing the upper layer of the skin—reducing and even eliminating the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. Dr. Cheryl Burgess finds that these are long-lasting options for individuals interested in turning back the hands of time without undergoing invasive surgeries such as plastic surgery face lifts.

Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are safe, FDA-approved injectables to use for cosmetic enhancement. They work great for crows feet, forehead folds, and wrinkles between the eyebrows. Dr. Cheryl Burgess finds they last approximately six months or longer before reinjection is necessary to maintain the results. It is a wonderful way for patients to slow the signs of aging and turn back the hands of time without having risky procedures done. Facial enhancement is a common request for patients in the area who are interested in smoothing the skin, improving texture, and feeling more confident about the way they look.

An appointment for Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® injections is fast, safe, and easy. Dr. Cheryl Burgess consults with patients regarding what to expect from treatment, and then cleanses the skin and prepares it for injection. Specific areas are addressed and patients rest in the treatment chair while a very fine needle is used to administer the medication into the muscles of the face. Patients may experience some slight redness and tenderness at the injection site for the remainder of the day, but this is short-term and not considered a concerning “side effect.” Patients are advised to visit the practice again for more injections if they are interested in maintaining the appearance of the skin over time.

If you live in or around the area of Washington, DC or Annapolis, MD, contact the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery today to book a consultation visit. We welcome men and women ready to make improvements on the way they look for personal enhancement and fulfillment. We want to make cosmetic solutions readily available to patients who are interested in addressing the unwanted signs of aging and maintain their attractive, youthful appearance.
