Helping Patients Understand Injectables

May 8, 2019

VA area patients understand injectables

When patients come to a dermatologist to help them look younger, they are ready to learn about ways of achieving a more attractive appearance without the need for plastic surgery. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners,  we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Centreville area with their skin care concerns.

VA Area Patients Receiving InjectablesInjectables are a common solution to aging skin. Instead of visiting a plastic surgeon who will suggest face lifts and other procedures that can leave scarring on the skin and cost an excessive amount of money, Dr. Neeraja Mattay and the team at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia offer less invasive, more affordable, and effective alternatives. This includes injectables such as neuromodulators and dermal fillers.

Neuromodulators include injectables such as Botox. Botox has been around for many decades, but was first used in medicine before it became known that it was beneficial for cosmetic enhancement. Dr. Neeraja Mattay and her team use Botox for patients who are interested in addressing folds and wrinkles on the face that have developed due to the contraction of specific muscles. Botox is best used on areas such as between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and on the forehead.

Another solution is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers include injectables such as Juvéderm, Perlane, and Restylane. They are made of hyaluronic acid and can add immediate volume wherever they are injected. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body and it attracts water. It is safe, effective, and the results can last several months before reinjection is necessary.
