What is Botox®?

Every time you laugh, frown, and smile, facial muscles contract. Years of making these expressions can create wrinkles that etch onto the face – causing a more aged look than desired.

But with Botox® Cosmetic, those muscular contractions are prevented from ever happening! This neuromodulator blocks signals to nerves sent by the brain so they never reach their target destination. This relaxes your muscles, allowing for a smoother and younger look.

Botox® cosmetic is the leading treatment in its category, being the pioneer and FDA-approved solution for temporarily improving moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines in adult patients.

It achieves this by blocking the nerve-to-muscle signal, preventing facial movements such as brow furrowing or crow feet formation.

Additionally, it relaxes facial muscles to reduce contractions during expressions, making it a globally embraced anti-wrinkle treatment that enhances skin texture and firmness for millions of users. 

How does Botox® work?

Make the clock turn back in just a few minutes with Botox®! This anti-aging treatment is incredibly popular because of its impressive ability to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

By temporarily blocking neurotransmitters in facial muscles, this revolutionary procedure prevents deep creases from forming - perfect for those looking to restore their natural beauty without invasive surgery.

By relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, Botox® reduces existing wrinkles and helps prevent new ones from forming.

To treat migraine headaches, Botox® blocks neurotransmitters from reaching the nerve endings around your head and neck. The treatments are quick, taking only 20 minutes, and there is no downtime. 

What areas can Botox® Treat?

Botox® can effectively treat many facial cosmetic conditions including Frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, bunny lines or lines across the bridge of your nose, minor vertical lip creases around the mouth, uneven brows, and gummy smiles.

Botox® can also relax the muscles on the corners of the mouth that have become downturned and upturn them for a more friendly appearance.

When will the results show?

Most patients compare it to a quick pinch or sting. A trained medical professional will use a fine needle to inject the Botox® into the targeted area. The sensation is quick and only lasts a moment. As for when you'll see results, it varies.

Some notice a difference within a few days, while others may need to wait up to a week. Full results typically take about two weeks to become apparent.

Forehead wrinkles, also known as frown lines or "11" lines, are vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows caused by repetitive facial expressions.

Botox® injections can soften these lines. Crow's feet are fine lines that appear at the corners of the eyes when smiling or squinting. Botox® can help smooth them for a more youthful look.

Bunny lines, small wrinkles on either side of the nose resulting from smiling or scrunching the nose, can be diminished with Botox®.

"Smoker's lines," vertical wrinkles above and below the lips, can be reduced using Botox® injections. Botox® can also relax an overactive mentalis muscle in the chin area, reducing dimpling or puckering of the skin.

Beyond its cosmetic uses, Botox® has received approval for medical purposes, such as treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), migraines, muscle spasms, and overactive bladder.

How long do results last?

Botox® is an effective neuromodulator that can reduce wrinkles for up to six months. Everyone absorbs the product differently, so repeat treatments may be necessary in order to achieve lasting results. With repetitive treatments, the muscles around targeted areas may gradually become more relaxed between sessions.

How much does Botox® cost?

The cost varies depending on the area treated and the number of treatments needed.

Is the procedure painful?

Botox® injections provide a quick, comfortable experience with impressive results. Our skilled and certified injectors will ensure a virtually pain-free session.

What are the potential risks and side effects of Botox®?

Botox® injections in Seattle and Kirkland are a noninvasive, non-surgical option with minimal risks. Most commonly experienced post-treatment side effects, such as redness or bruising, typically dissipate within a few hours.

Taking extra precautions for 12 hours after treatment is recommended to avoid unintended side effects, such as drooping eyelids, due to product migration into an unintended muscle group.

How many sessions will I need?

The sessions needed vary depending on the area being treated and how extensive the treatment is.

Is there any downtime after my Botox® treatment?

Botox® injections provide an efficient and quick beauty fix, with no downtime. You may resume regular activities immediately after treatment.

Can I get other injections in the same area?

Combining non-surgical treatments at the Larrabee Center can make the best use of your time. You could have a CoolSculpting session together with Botox® injections to reduce wrinkles, or laser hair removal and Botox® for an improved complexion.

Kybella® is ideal if you want to address double chin concerns while Botox® works well on areas like 11's between eyebrows. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm®, Restylane®, etc., are also safe in combination when injected during the same session!

Is Botox® FDA-Approved?

With FDA approval backing it up, you can trust that this safe cosmetic procedure will provide beautiful results without any prolonged downtime or serious side effects.

Are there any medical conditions that can be treated with Botox? 

Botox® has a range of applications that extend beyond its popular cosmetic uses. This safe and effective treatment provides relief for various conditions. For instance, it effectively reduces excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) by temporarily blocking the nerves supplying sweat glands.

For migraines, it acts as a roadblock on neurotransmitters' pathways, preventing them from reaching nerve endings in the head and neck area, thereby reducing the frequency and severity of migraines. Additionally, Botox® is used to treat jaw grinding pain. 

How soon can results be seen after a Botox treatment? 

Results from a Botox® treatment can typically be seen within 2 to 3 days, with full effects appearing after 2 weeks. 

What is the recommended age for starting Botox treatments? 

The FDA has approved Botox® as a safe and effective solution for improving moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows for crow's feet in individuals aged 18 and older. Some choose to use Botox® preventatively in their late 20s or early 30s 

How often should Botox injections be administered? 

The number of Botox® injections administered varies depending on individual needs and desired results. Typically, the effects of Botox® last for about three to six months, after which you can choose to schedule your next appointment to maintain the effects. 

Can Botox be used for preventive purposes? 

Botox®  is often used preventatively to combat wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive facial movements. Injecting Botox® into specific muscles temporarily paralyzes them, preventing the movements that lead to wrinkles. This delays the onset of wrinkles, maintaining a more youthful appearance. Using Botox early can prevent further deepening of existing wrinkles.
