BOTOX Cosmetic has revolutionized non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatments. It can effectively diminish crow's feet, laugh and frown lines, and other dynamic wrinkles caused by facial movement.
BOTOX can treat dynamic wrinkles in the following areas:
- Near the eyes, such as crow's feet
- Across the forehead, such as horizontal frown lines
- Around the mouth, including lip lines
- Around the neck, including neck bands
When the muscles in these areas contract — whether it's due to squinting, frowning, puckering your lips, or another repetitive movement — the skin wrinkles. Over time, these wrinkles become deeper and more permanent. To visualize this process, imagine a piece of paper being folded over and over again. BOTOX works by relaxing the muscles that cause this movement, allowing the skin to lie flat and undisturbed for an extended period of time. By allowing the muscle and skin to rest, the look of wrinkles is reduced.
BOTOX is made from a purified form of botulinum toxin type A. Since the FDA approved BOTOX Cosmetic injections in 2002, millions of treatments have been safely administered across the country.
BOTOX AND FILLERS CONSULTATION:
During your consultation, our medical director, Olga Voloshina will perform a thorough examination of your skin to determine which filler is best suited to meet your concerns as well as the amount of filler to use, proper injection sites, and the healthiest wrinkle filler regimen for your desired results. Olga Voloshina is considered one of the top injectors in the Seattle area and is also an Allergan Facial Aesthetics trainer. As an Allergan trainer she spends her time training doctors and nurses around the nation on proper injection techniques as well as the latest developments of the industry.
BOTOX COSMETIC TREATMENTS AND RESULTS MAINTENANCE:
Your BOTOX results will usually be visible within 3 to 7 days of treatment and results can last for up to 3 months. Once you see your treated wrinkles begin to reappear, you may make an appointment for a touch-up treatments to maintain your results as long as you'd like. If regular treatments are continued, your results may last longer between treatments. Dr. Stuart can help you better understand the results you can expect during your first visit.
DURING YOUR TREATMENT:
Your treatment can last for as little as 10-15 minutes, so you can schedule a lunchtime treatment, fit one in while you're out running errands, or stop by on your way home from work.
PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT:
Please let us know if you had any aesthetic treatments within 2 weeks of your Botox Cosmetic treatment.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT:
Because BOTOX injections are so simple and easy, returning to work or normal social activities is no problem immediately following treatment. You should keep your head elevated for at least 4 hours after the treatment and avoid rubbing or touching the treatment area. This allows the product to disperse properly for more consistent results. You may not exercise for 24 hours.
Botox treatments are available at Northwest Aesthetics Bellevue and Kent, WA locations.
