Botulinum toxin injections from Braun Dermatology in Washington, DC
Have you been told recently that you look mad or upset, when you felt happy and content? Have you looked in the mirror and noticed your reflection appears tired and angry? If so, you may be dealing with the dynamic wrinkles that can make a person look more aged. At Braun Dermatology in Washington, DC and Alexandria, VA, we offer botulinum toxin, also called neuromodulator injections to smooth out wrinkles to take years off your appearance. Our team of expert injectors have years of experience administering Botox® for both men and women in the Washington, DC and Alexandria, VA area.
Botulinum toxin refers to numerous injectable neuromodulators that include Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin® and Jeuveau®. When injected into the muscles beneath the skin, the neuromodulator blocks the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. This allows the muscles to relax and the appearance of lines and wrinkles to smoothen.
How neuromodulators work
Botulinum toxins address dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines and creases that appear on the face as a result of repeated facial expressions over time. As the muscles in these delicate areas of the face contract repeatedly, they pull the skin into creases and folds. Youthful skin full of collagen and elastin rebounds from these repeated contractions easily, but over time, the skin loses its natural elasticity, which means it can no longer recover from this muscular activity and the lines become permanent fixtures on the face.
Botulinum toxin injections effectively address the following concerns:
- Vertical creases between the eyebrows that are most visible when frowning.
- Horizontal eyebrow furrows
- Fine lines radiating out from the corners of the eyes, known as crow’s feet
- Vertical or Diagonal lines along the bridge of the nose
- Fine lines radiating out from the mouth, often called marionette or smoker’s lines
Achieve transformative results with Botox® injections
At Braun Dermatology, we love using neuromodulators to help patients rejuvenate their appearance and fight the signs of aging with results that are natural and long-lasting.
Sessions typically last less than 20 minutes. Using fine needles for the injections, we’re able to precisely place the correct amount of product in the proper places to deliver natural-looking results with minimal discomfort. Following treatment, patients can expect to see noticeable changes to the appearance within a few days. These results will typically last for several months before a follow-up treatment is needed.
Complete Facial Rejuvenation
For many patients, botulinum toxin injections are all that’s required to achieve the results he or she desires. However, for many patients, neuromodulators are just one piece of a comprehensive non-surgical facial rejuvenation makeover that may include dermal fillers, skin tightening, or other cosmetic procedures.
There’s also a growing trend of individuals seeking treatment in their 20s and 30s to prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming.
