Botox® Cosmetic Seattle

Botox in Seattle

You've heard the news by now - BOTOX® Cosmetic is an amazingly simple, effective way to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and achieve a revitalized appearance. Botox Cosmetic is a purified chemical made from a special neurotoxin that has been proven to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles in the face.

Dr. Heffernan injects Botox into the skin using a tiny needle. For most patients, treatment takes less than 20 minutes! There is little, if any, discomfort. The sensation of Botox injection has been compared to an insect bite. Once the chemicals in Botox enter and affect the body, they temporarily block the nerve impulses of specifically targeted muscles; this relaxes them and makes the skin appear smoother.

If you wish to slow the appearance of aging in the face, around the eyes, and on the forehead, Botox in Seattle may be a good choice. Facial wrinkles can be classified into two distinct types: 'dynamic wrinkles' occur when facial muscles contract, while 'static wrinkles' remain visible even when those muscles are at rest. Treating dynamic wrinkles with Botox can effectively delay the onset of permanent static wrinkles. Botox can also diminish the appearance of creases between eyebrows, do away with persistent crow's feet, and eliminate lipstick lines.

The results of Botox in Seattle aren't noticeable until a few days (4 - 8) have passed. Results typically last about 3-6 months. There is no downtime with Botox - you can return to your daily activities immediately. The injection areas will be indistinguishable.
