Potomac, MD area patients can use Botox® injections to reduce the signs of aging around the eyes
The eyes are the windows into the soul. They can share the way a person feels just by the way they look. When men and women in the Potomac area are unhappy with the way their eye area begins to look as they age, they have a few options available to them. Though plastic surgery is always an option for addressing skin laxity that causes fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and elsewhere on the face, it is not always the best solution for patients dealing with mild concerns. Instead, Dr. Ron Prussick and the associates of the Washington Dermatology Center may suggest injectables such as Botox®.
Botox® is a neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum toxin type A is safe when injected into muscles to reduce tension and contraction. The muscles are the reason for fine lines and wrinkles on certain areas of the face such as around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. By reducing the contractions causing these imperfections, patients can smooth out the skin and reduce the appearance and depth of these wrinkles and folds. Botox® works by reducing muscle tightness, which provides a more relaxed look.
Botox® has commonly been used for the crow’s feet around the eyes, but works well in many areas on the upper third of the face. Dr. Ron Prussick will determine the most problematic area and then administer a specific amount of Botox® into the area with ease. Patients are able to attend their appointments quickly and be in and out of the dermatologist’s office within minutes.
Dr. Ron Prussick at Washington Dermatology Center encourages patients to take the time to learn about the ways in which Botox® can be used to turn back the hands of time and reverse the signs of aging by wiping out concerning wrinkles and folds on the face.
