Patients at Sterling ask if Botox is one of the safest cosmetic medicationss available for anti-aging treatments
When patients think about cosmetic dermatological treatments and medications, Botox is the first thing that often comes to their mind. Botox is an anti-aging solution for patients in and around the Sterling area who are interested in addressing unwanted fine lines and wrinkles on the face. This particular medication, which is a neuromodulator, is designed to keep muscles of the face from contracting, thus reducing the appearance of specific folds. Patients find this particular treatment works best on wrinkles and folds on the upper portion of the face, specifically between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the eyes for crow’s feet.
Botox is one of the safest cosmetic medications out there. It has been used in medicine for many decades and was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use several years ago. This is why the team of Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. is excited to offer it as part of their anti-aging line-up for patients ready to take charge of their skin’s appearance.
Botox is a medication formulated with botulinum toxin type A which is a formulation that keeps muscles from contracting and forming new folds and wrinkles on the face. These dynamic wrinkles may also be addressed with dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, which are made of hyaluronic acid and can provide more immediate results. Patients can even use a combination of both neuromodulators and dermal fillers for optimum appearance. This can be determined during an initial consultation appointment during which a physical evaluation will allow the dermatologist the ability to point out the advantages of this and many other cosmetic treatments available through our dermatological facility.
