Procedure Details

Wrinkle Reducers

Wrinkle reducers, also called neuromodulators or neurotoxins, are comprised of botulinum toxin type A and designed to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles. Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are FDA-approved neurotoxins available in the U.S. market today. Botox has been used for medical purposes for over 30 years; in 2002 the FDA approved it for cosmetic purposes. All brands are safe when correctly injected and contraindications are observed.

How Do They Work?

When injected into targeted muscles, these products block communication between nerves and muscles. This produces a temporary effect that limits muscle contraction, causing wrinkles and lines to relax for 3-4 months.

What Do Winkle Reducers Treat?

Wrinkle reducers are often used to treat dynamic wrinkles like horizontal forehead lines, frown lines between eyebrows, and crow's feet. At Reston Dermatology + Cosmetic Center, we have the expertise that comes with experience to improve other areas using neuromodulators, including improving gummy smiles, softening vertical neck bands, lifting downturned lip corners, smoothing lines under eyes, and balancing uneven eyebrows, for example. Talk to us about giving your face a more sculpted look with neuromodulators in the masseter muscles (chewing muscles) with the bonus of relief from bruxism—grinding your teeth when asleep! 

What Age is Good to Start?

Did you know that by starting your wrinkle reducing injections in your late 20s to early 30s, you may prevent facial wrinkles from forming? Commitment to budgeting and scheduling your quarterly injections is like scheduling routine appointments for teeth cleaning. If you're starting your injections later in life, that's okay, too, as routine quarterly injections will keep your lines smoothed and softened—you'll always look your best. Maintaining this routine can prevent the lines from deepening and becoming permanently etched. If you already have etched lines, no worries! With a combination of neuromodulators and dermal fillers to lift the wrinkle, we can still help you achieve your goals of a more youthful look.

At Reston Dermatology + Cosmetic Center, our providers have injected more than TWO MILLION units of neuromodulators to help our patients achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance!

Before and Afters

Testimonials

Dr. Amiry's extensive experience is demonstrated by his keen understanding of patients' needs and highly effective technique. In administering Botox, he assessed my needs based on my level of satisfaction with prior applications at other facilities, and administered the injections quickly with virtually no discomfort. I realized the full potential of the treatment within just a few days and was happier with the results than I have ever been. For the first time, I did not need any touch-ups on the stronger muscles! Dr. Amiry's experience ensured that I received the right treatment to achieve the exact results I desired.

For many years, I have suffered from TMJ. The injection of Botox into my jaw muscles has relaxed them and relieved me from tremendous pain. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who suffers from jaw-clenching, and the side effects it causes (i.e.; headaches and teeth grinding). Thank you for improving my quality of life.

On the spur of the moment I was invited to accompany my sister to get her first Botox Injections. I was skeptical about the procedure and had no intention of joining in! Once at the office, I began speaking with several other patients. I was amazed at how great they all looked and I began to get excited. Still unsure, I decided to consult with Dr. Amiry. He was wonderful, as were all the staff! He explained fully what he would do and how it would affect me. Although scared I decided to go ahead with some of his recommendations and I am thrilled with the results! I never felt pressured to do more than I was ready for and I so appreciated that. I plan on returning soon!

As a skin care therapist it is important to me to look my best. I decided Botox and Restylane for facial enhancement. Dr. Amiry came recommended from others. The results are amazing, and I would never hesitate to go back or recommend him to my clients. He is highly skilled, pleasant and personable. His office Staff are all warm caring people. In s short, I highly recommend Dr. Amiry.

I was very hesitant to get Botox because I thought it would leave me expressionless. This was not the case at all. The only things that are missing are the unsightly lines on my forehead I am hooked-I love Botox. Amiry spends time with his patients and makes each and every one feel special, and not like a number. His holistic approach is a welcomed change in this fast paced world. Thanks Dr. Amiry and his wonderful Staff.
