Using Botox for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles for Centreville VA area patients.
Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia (also referred to as DANV) is here to help patients with medical and cosmetic dermatology needs. We can help improve the texture, tone, and overall appearance of the skin and address many medical concerns including acne, moles, eczema, psoriasis, and skin cancer. , Many of our patients visit our practice to learn more about aesthetic treatments such as Botox.
Botox has been used for many years to reduce muscle contractions. Over time, it has been found that it can also provide the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It works best in areas of the face such as between the eyebrows, the forehead, and around the eyes.
Patients must undergo a consultation appointment and evaluation to determine if they are appropriate candidates for treatment with Botox. Our dermatologist can examine patients and may even suggest other injectables for treatment such as dermal fillers. Dermal fillers work a little differently. Instead of inhibiting muscle contractions, dermal fillers use a gel, which is injected directly into the fine lines and wrinkles to add volume. In some cases, patients may benefit from both Botox injections and dermal fillers for optimal results.
Botox injections last approximately six months before the muscles regain their ability to contract. Patients who want to maintain the results have injections done twice a year. Patients who have moderate cases of fine lines and wrinkles, and those who want to address skin laxity may want to speak with their dermatologist about integrating skin tightening treatments or dermal fillers for a more beautiful look.
