At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Sterling area with their skin care concerns. When patients think about cosmetic dermatological treatments and medications, Botox is the first thing that often comes to their mind. This particular medication, which is a neuromodulator, is designed to keep muscles of the face from contracting, thus reducing the appearance of specific folds. Patients find this particular treatment works best on wrinkles and folds on the upper portion of the face, specifically between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the eyes for crow’s feet.
Botox is one of the safest cosmetic medications out there. It has been used in medicine for many decades and was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use several years ago.
Botox is a medication formulated with botulinum toxin type A which is a formulation that keeps muscles from contracting and forming new folds and wrinkles on the face. These dynamic wrinkles may also be addressed with dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, which are made of hyaluronic acid and can provide more immediate results. Patients can even use a combination of both neuromodulators and dermal fillers for optimum appearance.
