Signs of aging may be more visible on the face than any other area of the body. Facial rejuvenation is a strategy that uses a variety of treatments to combat the forces at work in an aging face.
Dr. Pacheco is one of the leading cosmetic doctors in the Annapolis area. She is a board certified oculoplastic surgeon. Her experience working around the delicate areas of the face give her an extreme advantage when it comes to Botox® and dermal filler injections.
What Causes Wrinkles
Unfortunately, wrinkles are just a part of life. There are some things that can accelerate signs of aging in the face:
- Overexposure to sun, wind, excessive heat or cold.
- Normal hormonal changes, including pregnancy and menopause.
- Depleted collagen production (decreases with age).
- Improper skin care routine.
- Smoking and/or excessive alcohol use.
- Poor diet and/or lack of exercise.
- Medical conditions, skin disorders (acne, rosacea, etc).
There’s good news, though. Dr. Pacheco offers several non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments and procedures that can improve slight facial imperfections. All of these are forms of facial rejuvenation. The most successful approach may be a personalized combination of procedures and treatments for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation strategy.

Facial Fillers — Restylane® | Restylane® Silk | Juvederm®
These facial fillers soften and resolve wrinkles and furrows. Fillers can plump up creased, furrowed or sunken facial skin — around the mouth and nose, lessening the appearance of scars. Restylane® can also be used as a lip enhancement treatment to create fuller, smoother lips. Most dermal fillers have results that last up to a year or longer.
