BOTOX® Cosmetic Kirkland WA
With So Many Nurses, Dentists & Physicians Offering BOTOX® Cosmetic, Why Should I Get It Here?
One thing to realize is that Dr. Amini, Dr. Wang and Dr. Gaal have each spent their entire residency and professional career focusing on the head and neck region. In addition, Dr. Wang spent an additional year focusing on nothing but total facial and body cosmetic surgery. There are many BOTOX Cosmetic practitioners that never learned facial surgery throughout their medical training. There are also many BOTOX Cosmetic practitioners who perform surgeries all over the body such that facial cosmetic surgery is nothing but a small part of their emphasis. Remember, your face is special and it takes dedicated and specialized training to be a masterful practitioner of the face!
Always question your provider about how and where they learned to administer BOTOX Cosmetic, how well they know facial anatomy, and what to do if complications arise. Many other practitioners are “certified” over a five-hour weekend class!
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
The active ingredient contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, clostridium botulinum.
How Does BOTOX Cosmetic work?
BOTOX Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your doctors will inject these muscles with BOTOX to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.
What Should I Expect?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months. Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX feels like a pinch. The actual procedure take roughly 10 minutes to complete. You will still look like yourself, only with less frown lines and crow’s feet!
Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave our office.
