Botox injections safe and effective for face wrinkles in the Rockville office of Dr. Prussick

Botox injections safe and effective for face wrinkles in the Rockville office of Dr. Prussick

Dr. Ronald Prussick and his aesthetic team are helping men and women from the Frederick and Rockville areas turn back the clock on facial aging. If you are just beginning to notice fine lines, furrows, and wrinkles or you are tired of looking tired, we can help you achieve a more youthful aesthetic with treatment tailored to your skin.

Why do we get wrinkles?

Everyone’s skin is different. Some people will notice furrows between the brows while they are still in their twenties or thirties while other people do not feel the need to address the signs of aging until decades later. Aging is a process that is different for everyone. What is shared among all of us, however, is the gradual loss of elastin, collagen, and other vital substances that keep the skin looking young. The natural changes in the skin may be compounded with factors such as sun damage, pollution, stress, and smoking.

Another major component to aging is facial expression. Of course, we cannot live our lives without showing emotion through the face. We laugh, cry, frown, squint in the sunshine, and more. Every time we do so, we are moving specific muscles in the face. In time, the repeated motion of the same muscles over and over becomes a standard state achieved with “muscle memory” even when we don’t knowingly contract.

Why Botox injections are great for certain face wrinkles

Botox, regarded as a wonder drug, is a minimally invasive wrinkle treatment that has helped many of our patients from the Rockville and Frederick areas achieve a more youthful aesthetic. The way that Botox works is by interrupting communication from nerves to treated muscles. Applied in precise locations and careful dosage, Botox minimizes the movements of muscles without inhibiting a person’s ability to achieve natural facial expression.

Botox treatment is a far cry from cosmetic face lift procedures, requiring absolutely no downtime and having minimal side effects. In our office, treatment is completed in just a few minutes. Though there will be some degree of immediate improvement, the effect of Botox on treated muscles takes up to a week to fully develop. After treatment, the face looks smoother, more relaxed, more youthful for several months. As the muscles become retrained by subsequent Botox treatments, results will last even longer.

Achieve a younger look in just a few minutes. Call the Washington Dermatology Center today for your visit with Dr. Prussick or one of his experienced staff.
