Anti-aging solutions help patients to age gracefully. While some patients may believe that a surgical face lift is the only way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance, there are alternatives. Injectables such as Xeomin, Dysport, and Botox are increasingly popular ways for patients to enjoy less invasive anti-aging benefits. At Washington Dermatology Consultants in Arlington, we provide Botox injections for fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox is a medication that works by relaxing the muscles where it is injected. This allows a more relaxed facial expression, which in turn smooths out areas of the face and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is typically injected in areas such as the forehead and around the eyes. Other areas of the face may be addressed with dermal fillers, also available through our practice.
Botox is FDA approved for both cosmetic and medical reasons. In fact, it has been used for decades for reducing problems associated with chronic migraine headaches and cervical dystonia. It can also be injected into the underarms to reduce problems associated with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). A dermatologist who is trained and experienced in injections can assist patients in fulfilling their cosmetic desires with Botox or any of the other injectables available through our practice.
Botox’s primary benefit is that it provides amazing improvements in the skin after the first injection. Patients can schedule further treatments later to maintain the results and slow the process of aging. Botox provides patients with a way to turn back the hands of time in a way that appears much more natural and does not require the recovery time and risks associated with surgical treatments.
If you live in the Arlington area and you have considered methods of improving the youthful texture and tone of the skin, Botox and other injectables may assist. Contact our team today to schedule your initial consultation appointment and learn more about the benefits of Botox over surgery.
