What is BOTOX?

Diminishing or preventing the early cosmetic effects of dynamic lines and wrinkles in the upper face and forehead is easy and effective with BOTOX injections at Nuance Medspa. Board-certified physician Dr. Son Do is excited to offer BOTOX injectable treatments for his patients in Ridgefield, WA. BOTOX injections are a type A botulinum toxin that temporarily weakens the movements of the facial muscles used to make particular expressions of the upper brow region. The lines formed from these continuous facial expressions are called “dynamic” because they are the result of muscle movement. BOTOX injections can significantly soften the depth of these wrinkles by giving the skin on top of those muscles the time to smooth itself without interference.

Ideal Candidates for BOTOX

BOTOX is used for individuals who hope to diminish and soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their upper face without surgery. BOTOX is also used as a preventive treatment, even if wrinkles have not yet formed. It's a terrific noninvasive treatment if you have obvious forehead lines or glabellar lines between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have more pronounced creases, a filler product may be more suitable. Based on your degree of skin laxity and cosmetic concerns, Dr. Do will help you determine whether BOTOX treatments are best for you during your consultation.

What to Expect after BOTOX

Following the BOTOX injection, you can return to your daily routine, but strenuous activities, like exercise, should be postponed for a minimum of 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for the first night and to avoid touching your face, which may accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected areas of the face can appear red, bruised, or swollen for 2 – 3 days, but you should not develop any severe or lasting side effects. In many cases, it usually takes around one week before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to schedule touch-up appointments at Nuance Medspa to refresh your results.
