There are many reasons why BOTOX® injections are one of the most popular skin rejuvenation options worldwide. This non-surgical treatment remains an effective way to relax facial lines and wrinkles without healing or downtime.
We offer this safe and comfortable treatment at Glow MediSpa in Seattle for patients who have visible signs of aging and are looking for natural-looking results.
Is BOTOX® Like Other Injectables?
It is common for patients to confuse dermal fillers with BOTOX® injections because the phrases are often used interchangeably. But while both types of skin rejuvenation treatments are administered with a fine needle, the injection method, and indications are very different.
Dermal fillers are injected just underneath the skin, plumping volume-deficient areas that have lost shape as a result of aging. BOTOX® and other agents are administered into the facial muscles, blocking chemical signals from producing the muscle activity that contributes to visible lines and wrinkles.
What are the Cosmetic Benefits of BOTOX®?
This popular treatment has several benefits:
- Smoother, tighter skin in just a few days after treatment
- No incisions, scars, healing or downtime
- Results that can last anywhere from three to six months, depending on the individual
- Subtle, natural improvement that refreshes and enhances your profile without appearing as though you have “had work done”
- Even after the agent wears off, your smooth skin can be easily maintained through regular treatment and a good skincare regimen
Are There Any Side Effects?
After treatment, it is common to experience swelling and redness at injection sites, but those side effects are generally gone within just a few hours.
Patients may also be advised to not apply any beauty products near the injection sites or put any pressure on their face for the rest of the day.
Other than that, typically no aftercare is needed, and many people will begin noticing results within the week. As their facial muscles begin to relax, the lines around their eyes, forehead, and mouth will begin to disappear.
BOTOX® is not a permanent treatment for wrinkles, but the results can be maintained with regular treatment and skin maintenance. During your consultation with our medical team, your visible signs of aging will be assessed, and we will help you determine how many sessions you may need to achieve your aesthetic goals.
