BOTOX Cosmetic is very popular at Plastic Surgery Northwest in Spokane, WA – and for good reason. BOTOX injections are an easy way for women and men to look naturally more refreshed, with results that last for months. Treatments are quick, simple, and require no downtime. At our practice, all injections are administered by board-certified plastic surgeons for natural-looking results and the highest level of safety.
What Can BOTOX Do for You?
When performed by our experienced doctors, these injections can provide the following natural-looking improvements:
- Smooth out crow’s feet, forehead creases, and other dynamic wrinkles
- Prevent lines and wrinkles from becoming noticeable
- Soften vertical neckbands
- Raise the outer eyebrows slightly for a non-surgical brow lift
- Control excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis)
We often combine BOTOX injections with facial fillers for more noticeable facial rejuvenation. We also offer miraDry® as a longer-lasting solution for patients concerned about excessive underarm sweating.
How It Works
While BOTOX and dermal fillers are both injectable wrinkle treatments, they work in different ways. Dermal fillers soften wrinkles by filling them from underneath. These products are injected into the skin below the wrinkle. BOTOX is a neuromodulator, which temporarily disables tiny muscles which cause dynamic wrinkles (those caused by repeated expressions). When the product is injected into precise facial muscles, the muscles relax (over the course of a few days), releasing the tension on the skin and ultimately smoothing the wrinkle.
BOTOX is an FDA-approved treatment that has a long-standing record of safety and effectiveness. For optimal results, be sure to choose a highly trained and experienced provider such as a board-certified plastic surgeon from our practice.
Your BOTOX Treatment
Our board-certified plastic surgeons perform BOTOX treatments right in our office. A quick consultation is all that is needed to determine if the treatment is right for you and your aesthetic goals. If desired, you can have the treatment during the same visit.
BOTOX treatments typically don’t require anesthetic; patients often say the injections feel like a mild bug bite. Using a fine needle, doctor makes a few quick injections into the areas of concern and the treatment is complete.
Recovery & Results
Most patients return to their regular daily routines right after their BOTOX treatments. For best results, keep the head elevated and avoid putting pressure on the treatment area for the first few hours. Injection sites may be pink and slightly swollen initially.
Treated areas gradually smooth out over the following 3 to 5 days; improvements typically continue to develop for approximately 10 days. This improved look should last about 3 months; however, results vary from person to person. Many patients return for touch-up treatments when they notice lines returning. The Brilliant Distinctions® rewards program can make repeat treatments more affordable.
