Great Falls area dermatologist describes Botox
Dr. Neeraja Mattay and the dedicated professionals at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. work hard to provide a wide range of services in their Great Falls area practice. Our dermatologist is well versed in the many ways in which the body and skin can be improved in both health and aesthetics. She encourages patients in and around the community to learn about the ways in which they can enhance their appearance with a method that does not involve invasive surgery. This is often achieved with the assistance of Botox.
Botox is a neuromodulator that was first used decades ago as a medication. It has been used for many conditions over the years, including overactive bladder, hyperhidrosis, tension headaches, and other medical problems. Over time, it was found that Botox could have an aesthetic benefit by reducing the fine lines and wrinkles that are developed from muscle contractions in the face. This can make patients look more youthful when injected into specific areas.
Botox is typically used in three locations on the face, around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These are places where muscle contractions can result in wrinkles and folds. Dr. Neeraja Mattay can administer these injections into just the right areas for optimum results.
Botox is safe and many patients will be able to enjoy the results they achieve for many months to come. Reinjection can be done to maintain the look and slow the signs of aging over the course of time. Botox can also be used in conjunction with other injectables including hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Combining these injections can provide a “liquid face lift” with amazing results!
Patients in and around the area of Great Falls are welcome to contact one of our practices in Sterling or Centreville, VA to find out how injections such as Botox can dramatically enhance the youthfulness of the face. Dr. Neeraja Mattay and her team work closely with both men and women to assist them in finding the most effective way of treating their aging skin.
