Enjoy the latest in anti-aging treatments near Bethesda: Botox!
At Washington Dermatology Center, Dr. Ron Prussick and his team work closely with patients to help them develop treatment plans for their aging skin. Patients often start visiting us around the age of 30. This is the point when they may begin to notice fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, and other changes that start to occur due to the loss of collagen in their skin. Collagen loss happens very slowly, but these gradual reductions in collagen can cause problems. Over time, wrinkles and folds begin to show and patients near the Bethesda area can work with a dermatologist to learn about the latest anti-aging treatments available to avoid plastic surgery. This is when Dr. Ron Prussick and his team may suggest Botox injections.
Botox is a neuromodulator that dermatologists have used over the years to help patients achieve a more youthful appearance. This injectable works by reducing contractions of the muscles in the face, therefore making dynamic wrinkles and folds much less noticeable. This change happens over the course of several days, and can last many months. Reinjection should be done at least twice a year.
Botox is safe and has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic and medical use. In fact, before Botox was used to reduce wrinkles and folds, it was used for a variety of conditions including chronic migraines, cervical dystonia, hyperhidrosis, and overactive bladder. This medication has been used in many applications and it continues to be very useful for both medical professionals and dermatologists.
Dr. Ron Prussick and the team of the Washington Dermatology Center are excited to offer this treatment as well as some of the most modern services available for skin rejuvenation. We offer laser skin rejuvenation, as well as other cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal and dermal needling.
