A popular injectable used at the practice is neuromodulators. A neuromodulator is a medication that can be injected directly into muscles to relax muscles and limit muscle contractions. This allows the skin to smooth out, reducing the depth and appearance of wrinkles and folds of the face. Popular neuromodulators used at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery include Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport®. These three brands provide similar results and allow patients to improve their appearance for several months before requiring reinjection for maintenance.
Patients considering injectables are often worried about whether they will be comfortable during the procedure. Cosmetic services such as these are done with proper anesthetics if needed, typically a numbing cream applied to the face before injections are administered or ice. Patients experience little discomfort during these injections.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess and the team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery encourage patients to book a consultation visit to learn more about the advantages of using injectables to turn back the hands of time.
