Soft Tissue Fillers
Soft tissue fillers, commonly referred to by patients as dermal fillers, are cosmetic injectables available at many dermatological practices in the area of Washington, DC and Annapolis, MD. Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery is a board certified professional who can assist patients in the enhancement of their skin with injections such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators. These can be used together to create the ultimate “liquid facelift” and can provide results for several months.
At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we offer a wide selection of dermal fillers to our patients. Some of the brands available include:
Each brand of dermal filler has its own pros and cons, and Dr. Cheryl Burgess can work with patients to determine the most appropriate one for their specific concerns. Some are better for filling fine lines while others are better suited for moderate to severe folds of the face. Some may be best for adding volume to larger areas such as the cheeks as they can provide not only added volume to the treatment area, but help in stimulating collagen production for long-term results. Most are made with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, a sugar that is naturally occurring in the skin and assists in attracting water directly to the injection point.

Other collagen-stimulating fillers are Sculptra and Radiesse.Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero are FDA approved Hyaluronic acid fillers. Consult a specialist to choose the filler for your skin. It is important to visit an experienced injector for a desirable outcome.
Injections are done by a board certified dermatologist in our practice, allowing patients to feel at ease with the results achieved with treatment. Our team will work closely with patients to show them where the injections will be made and what to expect immediately after their treatment. Aftercare instructions are minor and patients are just urged to take care of their skin with a proper skin care regimen to enjoy the long-term results that can be achieved with injectables such as these.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess is excited to assist patients in and around the areas of Annapolis, MD and Washington, DC and encourages men and women to visit her practice to see what is available for facial enhancement and addressing aging skin.
