When Loudoun, Northern VA area patients are curious about anti-aging solutions for their face they may be unsure who to consult about possible treatment options. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to helping individuals achieve the results they desire and offer a variety of treatments for patients interested in skin rejuvenation, such as Botox.
Botox has been around for decades and was first used for medical purposes. It has many indications in the medical field, and it can be utilized as treatment for temporomandibular joint disorder, overactive bladder, hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, and even chronic headaches and migraines. However, it was found that Botox also had a cosmetic benefit. When injected into muscles of the face, it reduces the appearance of folds and wrinkles that are caused by constant contraction. These dynamic wrinkles could temporarily be erased, allowing individuals to achieve a more youthful look with just one appointment at their dermatologist’s office. This discovery led to training of dermatologists so they could use the medication in their practices for helping patients with the unwanted signs of aging.
Botox is made of botulinum toxin type A. It is safe and effective in reducing lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, eyebrows, and even lips. Dr. Neeraja Mattay also takes the time to consult thoroughly with her patients on what can be expected from treatment and how long the results will last. It is typical that results will be maintained for many months before reinjection is necessary to maintain them.
Dr. Neeraja Mattay encourages patients to learn about the ways in which they can rejuvenate their appearance even when they are struggling with aging skin. Instead of visiting a plastic surgeon, now is the perfect time to consult a dermatologist regarding the methods readily available for enhancing natural beauty in a non-invasive, affordable, and effective way.
