Dr. Melda Isaac, a board-certified, experienced dermatologist who is the director of MI Skin Dermatology in Washington, DC, offers many different treatments for aging skin at her practice. Among these treatments are dermal fillers, neuromodulators such as Botox, laser skin resurfacing treatments, and skin tightening treatments. These treatments can be combined for optimal anti-aging results, and can give you results almost like a mini-facelift, but without needing to undergo surgery.
Treatment for Aging Skin
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular methods for treating aging skin. Dermal fillers come in a wide variety of types and can treat issues ranging from fine lines and wrinkles to thinning lips. Dermal fillers can soften fine lines and wrinkles, plump and shape lips, restore lost volume, reduce the appearance of eye bags and undereye circles, and even reshape the nose! In addition to the face, dermal fillers can also be used to treat the hands, chest, and earlobes. In fact, in recent years, earlobe rejuvenation has become extremely popular, as many women experience the effects of wearing heavy earrings for years.
Dermal fillers have become so popular that even non-dermatologists such as dentists, family practitioners, and medical assistants at med spas have begun to offer them as treatments. However, it is important to have a dermal filler treatment performed only by a board-certified dermatologist, as they have the experience and training to know how to administer fillers in the most optimal way, with the least amount of side effects. In addition, a dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac will only use FDA-approved fillers, while others may use fillers that have not been FDA approved in order to save money. These non-FDA approved fillers can be dangerous, as has been shown in many news stories over the years.
