Botox Injections in Tacoma
It is natural for humans to want to look young and wrinkle-free. One of the most common reasons that patients elect to have plastic surgery or any type of procedure is the desire to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles on or near the face. Some patients have severe wrinkles, such as a “turkey neck,” while others simply have the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes. As we age, our skin droops, which naturally lends itself to wrinkles. Many patients choose options such as a neck or face lift to try to eradicate wrinkles, but some patients are wary of surgery. For this reason, here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer Botox injections in Tacoma, so that our patients can experience a younger, fresher look without surgery.
Most patients are excellent candidates for Botox. Botox is actually an injectable protein. When used over time, it helps with muscle contraction, and this naturally smooths wrinkles out, minimizing their appearance. Botox is used for a variety of ailments beyond wrinkles. Some patients get Botox injections because of jaw pain or severe migraines. Botox is also used to treat extreme underarm sweating, and is a known combatant against depression.
Unlike surgery, there is no recovery time needed after a Botox injection, and patients can immediately resume normal activities, such as work or exercise. There also are very few negative side effects associated with Botox. Patients may experience some bruising around the injection site, but it is minimal.
