Dr. Neeraja Mattay, a dermatologist near Ashburn, VA, encourages patients to take the time to learn about the many ways in which they can improve their overall appearance. As the skin ages, it begins to look elasticity and becomes more susceptible to issues such as the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This is when patients begin to consider aesthetic treatments to slow down the signs of aging and even turn back the hands of time whenever possible. 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 including Botox injections.
Botox has been around for many decades. It has been FDA approved for medical uses including overactive bladder, cervical dystonia, hyperhidrosis, and chronic headaches and migraines. Then it was recognized as having cosmetic benefits. When injected into specific muscles of the face, it can reduce the depth and overall appearance of wrinkles and folds. The wrinkles it is best at combating is that of crows feet, forehead folds, and glabellar lines (the frown lines that develop between the eyebrows). Dr. Neeraja Mattay has found that patients are able to enjoy improvements to their aging skin in one appointment.
Botox injections are made of botulinum toxin type A. This medication is used to reduce muscle contractions. When this occurs, it can reduce the formation of wrinkles on the face, or reverse their appearance. Dr. Neeraja Mattay has been using Botox injections to assist patients in rejuvenation of their face when the signs of aging are becoming a concern.
