The best results for dermal fillers come from working with your doctor near Rockville

Dermal Fillers Best Result, Washington Dermatology Center

The way in which the face ages include several factors, such as loss of hydration, diminished subcutaneous tissues, textural changes, and loss of elasticity. One of the most significant changes is the loss of volume. Each year, the total volume in the face may decrease one teaspoon, or even more. As the body produces less hyaluronic acid, less moisture is retained in the skin. Decrease in collagen production in addition to the loss of moisture can lead to overall thinning. Aging and other factors also affect the underlying tissues, including bone mass and fat pads, which add structure to the face. As these elements decrease, skin becomes loose and saggy, rough in texture, and marked with lines and wrinkles.

Replacing what has been lost to time

There is no way to avoid growing older. There are, however, treatments to slow the signs of aging that are easily accessible, unlike the options available even a few decades ago. Where rejuvenation was once only possible with a surgical facelift, men and women desiring a return to a more youthful appearance can now accomplish goals with non-invasive techniques and products. One of the bestways to address the signs of aging is to work with your doctor who specializes treatment of the skin. Dr. Prussick offers dermal fillers and other treatments for patients in Rockville and Maryland.

Dermal fillers are usually made from various elements in the dermis, such as Hyaluronic acid. Each, however, is designed to restore volume for the improvement of facial contours. Some of the common issues addressed with dermal fillers include:

  • Hollow cheeks
  • Thinning lips
  • Sagginess in the skin on the chin
  • Sagging jowls
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Marionette lines between the corners of the mouth and the chin
  • Smile lines between the nose and outside of the lips
  • Other wrinkles

The dermal fillers Dr. Prussick uses to improve facial contours include Juvéderm, Radiesse, Restylane and Belotero. These are considered by many to have the best effects on the various treatment areas. Each filler has unique properties so it is able to address specific concerns or areas. Some treatment plans may include only one type of filler; others may incorporate several, or even include Botox for complete, natural-looking rejuvenation.

We can help you love the way you look. With offices in North Bethesda and Frederick, we are able to serve areas including Rockville and surrounding communities. Call Washington Dermatology Center and schedule your consultation today.
