COVID-19 NOTICE : Safety measures implemented
Anti-aging solutions are available over-the-counter in many topical treatments. However, so many of these are gimmicks and do not provide true results. Patients with fine lines and wrinkles who want to address them in an effective, affordable manner are encouraged to learn more about wrinkle reduction treatments such as injectables. Injectables are used by Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery in Washington to reduce the depth and overall appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and folds. There are dermal fillers, collagen stimulators and neuromodulators. For many patients, neuromodulators can provide effective long-term results with just a few injections.
Neuromodulators available through the practice of Dr. Cheryl Burgess are Botox, Xeomin and Dysport. All of these are made with botulinum toxin type A, which is a medication used to relax muscle contractions. When this medication is injected into muscles of the face, it can keep them from tightening as much and reduce the dynamic wrinkles they can cause. This includes crow’s feet around the eyes, wrinkles between the eyebrows and folds on the forehead. They can provide results for many months, but need to be reinjected regularly to maintain them over the years.
Neuromodulators have been used for many years for other medical concerns including hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating. Botox has also been used to address chronic headaches, reduce pain and tension from TMD (a jaw joint condition) and cervical dystonia. Neuromodulators are FDA approved for both medical and cosmetic uses.
While there is no way to stop or completely reverse the signs of aging, there are ways to slow it. With neuromodulators and other injectables, patients can enjoy the benefits of a beautiful appearance even as the years go by!
