Botox Injections in Bellevue
There are many reasons that a patient decides to have plastic surgery, but one of the reasons is to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Wrinkles can manifest themselves as tiny crows feet around the eyes, or can be larger and deeper, causing a “turkey neck” look around the face and neck. As we age, our skin naturally sags, and many patients would like to have younger, fresher skin to help regain their confidence. At the same time, many patients do not want to go through a tedious surgery. For those who are wary of surgery but still want to rid the face of wrinkles, here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer Botox injections in Bellevue for our patients.
Many patients have heard of Botox injections, but are not sure what it really does. Botox is an injectable protein that when used over time, can smooth muscle contraction where wrinkles are located. As the muscles relax, the wrinkles in the face naturally do as well. Not just for the minimization of wrinkles, Botox is also used to relieve jaw pain, migraines, and relieve excessive underarm sweating. Botox is also thought to be effective as a mild antidepressant.
Botox injections carry very little risk and side effects. Patients can immediately resume normal activities such as work or physical activity, and no recovery time is required. One common side effect of Botox is an appearance of bruising near the injection site, but this should fade quickly and without complication.
