Due to fairly consistent movements of facial skin in between the eyebrows, the muscles contract repeatedly and ultimately form frown lines. Wrinkles can certainly occur with age, but the main reason they form, especially on the forehead, is due to repeated facial movements such as frowning, smiling, or squinting.

Dysport in Alexandria VA can help treat these mild to severe wrinkles by blocking the nerve signal that causes facial muscles to contract.

The benefit to Dysport in comparison with Botox in Alexandria VA is that patients tend to see results much faster, sometimes as early as three days post-injection.

Dr. Heron will ensure that all your comfort needs are met during the procedure. Being a same day procedure, patients can leave after it’s performed and resume normal activities.


Becoming a fast and upcoming cosmetic alternative, Botox in Alexandria VA is another option in order to achieve smoother skin and minimize wrinkles. Botox is primarily used on the face such as the surrounding eye region (crow’s feet) and mouth. The neck is also another popular area of the body Botox can treat.

Botox consists of Botulinum A Toxin which is a purified protein from botulism bacteria. The Botox procedure causes the nerves of the facial muscles to temporarily be paralyzed so it won’t contract (cause wrinkles).

Botox in Alexandria VA is performed topically by numbing the skin with a numbing agent and slowly injected into different parts of the face. This procedure consists of minimal pain and done using very thin needles.

The procedure usually takes 10 to 30 minutes to complete, but it’s also dependent on how many injections are required on the patient. Be sure to ask our physician any questions you may have before and after the procedure so you can be the most comfortable.


Restylane in Alexandria VA contains a natural substance that’s found in the human body called hyaluronic acid which is also found in sugars and fruits. Patients who opt for Restylane treatment in Alexandria VA are seeking elimination of wrinkles on areas of the face and restoration of moisture in the skin. Restylane also works to connect facial tissue tightly and smooth the skin out.

With immediately noticeable results, Restylane are the touch up injections that can be the solution to treat multiple areas of the face. Restylane can treat the following issues on different parts of the face:

  • Laugh lines
  • Wrinkles around the nose
  • Wrinkles around the mouth

If you’re looking to restore volume and enhance a more youthful looking appearance, Restylane dermal fillers in Alexandria VA may be the injectable solution that you need. Restylane contains a high safety profile as a filler and is also biocompatible.

Restylane is also a favorable skin tightening remedy due to its natural way of functioning and ways of binding to water over time. It maintains its shape by using the body’s own moisture which is what contributes to long lasting results.

Restylane Lyft

As we get older, it’s always a common occurrence to face the loss of skin tightness and volume. Our cheeks in particular suffer the most fat breakdown which contributes to wrinkly and saggy skin.
