Botox Injections in Olympia
People elect to have cosmetic procedures done for very different reasons. Some patients want to augment or minimize certain areas of the body, while others want to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles on or near the face. Yet others opt to have cosmetic procedures done for purely medical reasons. Those who want to minimize the look of wrinkles may opt for surgery, such as a face lift or a neck lift, but some patients are wary of surgery. As we age, our skin naturally droops, which can cause wrinkles on the neck and face. Some wrinkles can be so severe that they cause the appearance of a “turkey neck,” but for many, wrinkles manifest themselves by the way of crow’s feet and other fine lines. Botox is an ideal solution for those patients who want fresher, younger skin without surgery, and here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer Botox injections in Olympia for all of our patients.
Botox is actually an injectable protein, and after a series of injections, it begins to work its magic on wrinkles and fine lines. Botox helps with muscle contraction, which relaxes the muscles and naturally lends itself to smoothing out wrinkles. Botox also has other uses, and is used for moderate to severe jaw pain, migraines, and can even help with excessive underarm sweating.
Unlike surgery, there is no recovery time needed after a Botox injection, and patients can immediately return to normal activities. Very few side effects are associated with Botox. Some patients report mild bruising near the injection site.
