Age has a way of sneaking up on us. If you’re discouraged by the lines and wrinkles you see in your reflection each morning, there’s a nonsurgical way you can reduce those signs of aging and look like a younger version of yourself. Make a resolution for no more wrinkles, and start the new year looking younger with Botox® and dermal fillers.
Yaqub Baraki, MD, and the highly trained professionals at Lansdowne Aesthetic Center in Leesburg/Ashburn, Virginia, can create a Botox and filler plan to minimize the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Whether you’re concerned with forehead creases, vertical lip lines, lost volume in your cheeks, or other signs of aging, Botox and dermal fillers can have you looking your best in no time.
Injections to the rescue
If you’re not ready for face-lift surgery or other invasive procedures, cosmetic injections can deliver outstanding results that last from several months to a couple years, depending on the products and appearance you want to maintain.
Botox relaxes facial muscles
Botox helps counteract the visible signs of aging by temporarily relaxing the muscles that lead to certain wrinkles. Year after year, as you smile, frown, and squint, your facial muscles contract. Over time, these repeated facial expressions can lead to lines and creases around your forehead and eyes.
When Dr. Baraki injects Botox into your forehead, between your eyebrows, or at the corners of your eyes, the serum safely and temporarily paralyzes the underlying muscles, thereby making them relax. As a result, the lines and wrinkles they used to create will appear smoother and less noticeable for up to four months. You’ll still be able to make your usual expressions, however.
Dermal fillers reduce lines and add volume
Many of the dermal fillers we offer at Lansdowne Aesthetic Center contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance your body produces naturally. As you get older, your natural hyaluronic acid production slows down, leaving your skin less hydrated, less elastic, and with less volume. When Dr. Baraki injects the smooth gel of dermal fillers into the areas around your nose, mouth, cheeks, or lips, wrinkles and creases will appear less visible, and you’ll enjoy restored volume again.
Dermal fillers plump up aging skin immediately, so when you leave our office, you’ll look younger and rejuvenated. Results can last up to two years, although you can always come in for touch-up treatments to keep your skin looking youthful year after year.
If you want to spruce up the way you look in the new year, Botox and dermal fillers may be just want you need. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Lansdowne Aesthetic Center today.
