Bethesda, MD area dermatologist describes the Radiesse dermal filler
Dr. Ron Prussick of the Bethesda area is a dermatologist at the Washington Dermatology Center who believes that men and women should have access to cosmetic treatments for improving the way they look. Many patients struggle with unwanted signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles that develop due to skin laxity. Skin laxity is a result of collagen and elastin loss, which naturally occurs after the age of 30. Men and women who are seeking ways to turn back the hands of time may schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Ron Prussick and his team to learn about non-invasive treatment options such as dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are a popular solution for patients who want to avoid invasive plastic surgery but want to achieve a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are commonly made with hyaluronic acid, which is a protein that attracts water therefore adds volume immediately where it is injected. Dr. Ron Prussick has a wide range of dermal fillers available through his practice including that of Radiesse®.
Radiesse®, unlike other dermal fillers such as Juvéderm®, is made with calcium hydroxylapatite. These help add volume to the area of injection while also stimulating the body’s own collagen production. Collagen can build over time and add more volume, therefore extending the length of time in which patients will see results. While dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® may require reinjection every six months; many patients who undergo Radiesse® injections enjoy results that can last well over a year thanks to the replenishment of collagen in the skin.
Radiesse® can be used in conjunction with many other injectables such as hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and neuromodulators such as Botox®, which is another treatment option that is highly desired at the Washington Dermatology Center. Dr. Ron Prussick is proud to offer a myriad of injections, which allow his patients to choose the ones best for them based on their specific needs.
Patients located in the area of Bethesda are welcome to contact the Washington Dermatology Center today to book a consultation visit and evaluation with our team of professionals and find out if Radiesse® or other injectables are appropriate for them.
