What Does Botox Do?

If lines and wrinkles affect your confidence, it's time to take action. You shouldn't walk through life feeling self-conscious about your appearance, and we want to let you know that the power to erase those lie lines and wrinkles lies within your reach. At our Glow Medispa locations in Seattle and Kirkland, WA, we offer Botox and Dysport, the most popular cosmetic injectables that can smooth away all your lines and wrinkles in a quick and virtually painless treatment.

What Does Botox Do?

If you are familiar with Botox and Dysport, know friends and family members who use them, and are considering beginning a routine with this injectable yourself, you won't be disappointed. However, even if you know what this injectable is, you may not completely understand how it works or what it does. Botox and Dysport are both wrinkle-relaxing injectables.

Its primary purpose is to relax the muscles responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles, typically in the upper half of the face. The active ingredient in this injectable is administered directly into the muscles. It then temporarily immobilizes those muscles so that they not only disappear but can no longer make your existing lines and wrinkles worse. As soon as this injectable is administered into the muscles, you will be on your way to smooth, wrinkle-free skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens During The Injection Process?

Once you arrive for your injection, we will clean your skin, and your injector will administer this injectable to specific areas as outlined in your treatment plan to target your specific lines and wrinkles. This may be in your forehead, between your eyebrows to address frown lines, or at the outer corners of your eyes to smooth the crow's feet.

A Quick, Customizable Treatment

You may choose to treat one or multiple areas of your face to reach your aesthetic goals. The injection process is quick, and you'll barely feel a thing, but if you are apprehensive about needles or have sensitive skin, we can apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before the treatment begins. This will help you feel more comfortable and confident throughout the injection process. This is rarely necessary!

Some patients schedule treatments with friends or bring friends; others show up alone. It's completely up to you but know that the entire treatment is quick and will only take 10 to 20 minutes to complete from start to finish. You'll be in and out before you know it and on your way to wrinkle-free skin.

Is There Any Downtime?

One of the reasons everyone loves this injectable so much is that it doesn't require a significant amount of downtime. Actually, there is no downtime. You'll be able to resume your normal daily activities as soon as your appointment is over. We will provide you with some aftercare directives to make sure that you get the best results possible after your treatment.

Aftercare Directions

These directions mainly include taking it easy for 24 hours, avoiding major exercise, hot environments, including hot yoga, saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, and anything that increases your body temperature. Try not to massage your face.

One of our injectors will provide you with a complete list of directives so that you know what to do and what to avoid to make sure your results turn out perfect. You will also need to avoid extreme exercise for 24 hours post-treatment. Walking is fine, but anything that significantly increases blood flow can negatively impact your results.

Can I Combine Treatments?

You absolutely can combine cosmetic treatments with Botox or Dysport. Nothing is stopping you from getting dermal fillers and this wrinkle relaxing injectable at the same time, as well as other anti-aging treatments.

This injectable addresses the wrinkles that form on the upper half of the face from repetitive expressions throughout the course of your life. They target aging at the muscular level. Dermal fillers target aging in the tissue by filling areas that have experienced skin laxity and general volume loss.

Creating a Comprehensive Anti-Aging Treatment Plan

Because both of these injectables complement each other and address aging at different sources, you can combine them. We can design a comprehensive treatment plan to address each of your needs.

During your consultation, discuss your problem areas with our injectors so that they can make recommendations to help you address the different types of aging and achieve your aesthetic goals as quickly as possible, sometimes all in one appointment.

How Many Units Will I Need?

The total number of units needed to address lines and wrinkles in different areas of the face varies among patients. Some patients prefer as few units as possible. Other patients require more units to adequately target highly mobile areas or to treat more severe lines and wrinkles. Your injector will give you more details about how many units will be used during your unique treatment at your consultation.

Will I See Results Right Away?

Once you begin treatment, you will notice an initial improvement in your problem areas within two to three days of your appointment. Full results set in in about 3-5 days for Dysport and 1-2 weeks for Botox. You will notice your lines and wrinkles fade as they are no longer forced into exaggerated expressions throughout the day.

You will look well-rested and more youthful, but you can still expect to look just like yourself, just a younger version. If you have forgotten what your face looks like without wrinkles, you will be pleasantly surprised at your reflection once your results are evident.

How Many Follow-Up Treatments Will I Need?

Botox typically delivers results that last for three months and Dysport lasts 4-5 months. Once you notice that your lines and wrinkles are beginning to reappear, we can schedule a follow-up treatment so you once again target those problem areas so that you can maintain your wrinkle-free skin year-round. This injectable is long-lasting, but it also delivers results that are only temporary.

If you want to maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin, you must commit to scheduling and attending follow-up treatment once you notice a change in your appearance. One of our experienced team members can help you schedule treatments as needed to take all of the guesswork out of the process so that all you have to do is show up.

Is It Safe?

Botox and Dysport are both FDA-approved cosmetic injectables that have been smoothing lines and wrinkles on the face of men and women all around the world for over 20 years. You can rest assured that this treatment is safe, and even though the main ingredient has the word toxin in it, this toxin is actually a highly purified protein, so don't let it alarm you.

This highly purified protein is specifically formulated to treat wrinkles so you can rest assured that when you receive treatment, you will be undergoing a safe and effective treatment that will help you reach your aesthetic goals and restore youth to your complexion.

Am I a Candidate?

If you have frown lines, crow's feet, or forehead lines that are draining your confidence, and you want smooth, wrinkle-free skin again, you may be the perfect candidate for this anti-aging injectable. As long as you're in good health, an adult, and are not allergic to any of the injectable ingredients, this injectable is most likely right for you.
