Rockville area dermatologist reviews the benefits and cost for Botox injections

Dr. Prussick Ron at Washington Dermatology Center reviews the benefits and cost for Botox injections

Botox is a common neuromodulator used by patients in and around the Rockville area to help in turning back the hands of time. When fine lines, wrinkles, and folds are beginning to have a negative impact on one’s appearance and make patients feel self-conscious about their aging skin, we have options here at Washington Dermatology Center. Dr. Ron Prussick can discuss with patients the benefits of Botox and fully understand how it works.

As a neuromodulator, Botox works by reducing the contraction of the muscles in which it is injected. This means that the muscles are unable to cause tension, which results in the smoothing of the skin. Muscles around the eyes and on the forehead are the most common culprits of s forehead folds, glabellar lines, and crow’s feet. By injecting Botox into these muscles, these areas will smooth out and look more youthful within a week, with results lasting several months!

Dr. Ron Prussick reviews with his patients the cost, expectations, and the longevity of Botox injections. It can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, and effectively slow the signs of aging that patients often experience after the age of 30 due to the loss of collagen and elastin.

Botox is affordable and can be used in conjunction with other dermal fillers and injectables such as Juvéderm and Restylane. Combining cosmetic injectables can assist patients in achieving a “liquid face lift,” taking years off the appearance of the skin. This can be a great way for patients to avoid invasive procedures such as surgical intervention and age gracefully over the years.
