Injectable Wrinkle Smoothing Treatments
As we get older, our faces and bodies start to feel and look different. One common natural sign of aging is wrinkles and thin lines, which are typically most visible on the face. If you are interested in smoothing out some of the wrinkles in your face with non-surgical treatments, our Bellevue Botox™ injections may be right for you. At our Bellevue cosmetic surgery center, A-To-Zen Regenerative Medicine, we offer this affordable solution to help you achieve a younger appearance without the use of surgery.
A few of the benefits of Botox™ injections include reducing or eliminating:
- Forehead creases
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
How Does Botox™ Work?
The brow begins to furrow over time and fine lines appear all over the forehead and face. Botox™ is an injectable which works to relax facial muscles that have tightened over time. This type of non-surgical treatment helps to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines and make you look more youthful as a result.
Botulinum Toxin A
Type A Botulinum is a neurotoxin that binds to the nerve endings at the point where it meets the muscle. It is meant to prevent the muscle from contracting, the very action that, over time encourages the development of fine lines and wrinkles. We carry two of the major competing brands: Xeomin™ and Botox™.
Xeomin™ has been used for the treatment of blepharospasm (eye dystonia) and neck (cervical) dystonia. It has been deemed as safe for cosmetic procedures, such as moderate to severe fine lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. It is comprised purely of botulinum toxin A, which means the body will not react adversely or attempt to “fight off” other neurotoxins that could be present.
When administered by a trained medical professional, Botox™ injections are safe and effective. Botox has been used for more than a decade to treat individuals of all ages and skin types. These treatments typically take about an hour in our unique and comfortable Bellevue plastic surgery center, and involves little to no pain or discomfort. There are usually no side effects or recovery time involved, which means you can be back to your normal activities in no time.
