Your facial expressions help show when you’re feeling sad, angry, or happy, but unfortunately, they also lead to unwanted lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them! Find out how a treatment of Botox in Bellevue can effectively smooth out your wrinkles for a younger-looking you.
Who is a Candidate?
Botox is FDA-approved for those over the age of 18. If years of facial expression have left you with lines extending from the outer corners of your eyes, frown lines between your brows, and other unwanted upper-face wrinkles, you could benefit from treatment with Botox.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox uses a purified protein to temporarily block nerve signals in the facial muscles. When placed at the correct points in and around the forehead, the muscles that normally produce wrinkles will stop contracting, leaving your face smooth while preserving your natural expressions.
What Can I Expect with Botox?
When you choose Botox, you can expect a quick treatment session with minimal discomfort. You’ll have the option for ice or numbing cream if you’re still worried about feeling pain. Side effects of Botox are usually mild and might include swelling, redness, and bruising, but unlike a surgical procedure, you’ll have no required downtime. In the days following your treatment, you can begin to notice the improvement in your wrinkles. Final results can be seen after a month and typically last for four months after your treatment session. After the results wear off, you can choose to let your face age, or schedule a follow-up appointment to maintain your results!
