BOTOX is an FDA approved injectable product used to temporarily improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. The active ingredient is a purified protein that blocks nerve signals from the brain to affected muscles.
When injected into the facial muscles, the treatment actually reduces the muscle activity that cause the wrinkles in the first place. In addition to cosmetic use, it is also used to treat conditions such as excessive perspiration, migraine headaches, and eyelid spasms.
How It Works
BOTOX has been successfully used for years to treat common age-related concerns of men and women alike. While injectable fillers work by physically adding volume to wrinkles, this treatment works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that cause crow’s feet and frown lines.
When injected by the medical practitioners at SkinSpirit Redmond, BOTOX smooths your complexion by preventing your muscles from making the expressions that cause wrinkles, without interfering with your ability to make regular facial expressions.
About Botox at SkinSpirit Redmond
Our BOTOX practitioners in Redmond are among the most experienced in the country. Typical appointments are rather brief, and clients typically return to their normal activities immediately afterward.
You can expect your appointment to last around thirty minutes. Your medical practitioner will cleanse your skin and review your goals with you. They will then have you make facial expressions to see analyze the appropriate treatment areas for you. A series of injections are then made using a very fine needle. Most clients report that these injections feel like a small pinch.
You may experience some minor injection site reactions such as tenderness, bruising, itching, or bleeding following your appointment. These are all normal and typically do not last more than a day or so.
Results will start to develop within 24 hours but it can take around a week to see the full effect. Your results should last between three and six months, depending on your own unique physiology and where on your face you had injections.
