When it comes to getting older our bodies go through many changes, with some of them being unflattering. Starting in our mid-20s, our metabolism begins to slow, allowing for the gradual accumulation of fat to build around our body. Changes also happen in our faces, as the natural production of collagen, which keeps our skin firm and supple, begins to slow. This, along with losing its natural elasticity is how wrinkles, lines, and folds start to form on our skin.
At our office, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside offers injectables to help reduce and even temporarily eliminate the signs of aging on your skin. Injectables offer a non-surgical option for addressing fine lines, deep wrinkles, and other signs of aging throughout the face.
This non-surgical facial rejuvenation option can produce a fuller, softer appearance, creating a noticeably more youthful look that simply cannot be achieved with over-the-counter creams and ointments. During your consultation with Dr. Gartside, she can best determine which type of injectable will produce the look you desire.
If you are interested in learning if any of our injectables can help you reach your aesthetic goals, please call New Image Plastic Surgery, PLC at 703-742-8004 today to schedule a consultation. Dr. Roberta Gartside offers this nonsurgical option to men and women living in Reston and McLean, Virginia as well as the Washington, D.C. area.
Injectables We Offer
Dr. Gartside offers a range of hyaluronic acid (HA) injectables. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body where it serves a number of functions. One of those is assisting in producing full-looking and soft-feeling skin.
As you age, the level of HA in your skin diminishes. This can allow the skin to look sunken and make you look older than you are. It can also allow fine lines and deep wrinkles to begin to appear. By replacing HA through expertly targeted injections, levels are restored and a more youthful look is achieved. Better yet, because HA works with your body, results can last for over 12 months in some cases, making injectables the longest lasting non-surgical treatment available.
The types of injectables we offer at our Reston and McLean offices include:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: This FDA-approved injectable is one of the most widely-performed cosmetic procedures in the world and can temporarily eliminate lines and wrinkles on your face.
