Before & After Botox injection
What is Botox?
Botox is a purified protein that has the ability to relax muscles into which it is injected. This relaxation may be partial or complete, depending on the amount of Botox used and on the relative strength of the muscle into which it is injected. The relaxation produced by Botox is temporary (usually 4-6 months), as the treated muscle will gradually 'wake up' over time.
Which wrinkles can Botox treat?
There are two different types of wrinkles on the face: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are present even with complete stillness and lack of expression on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear or become significantly more apparent with facial expression. Botox is ideal for treatment of dynamic wrinkles of the face and is used to relax those facial muscles whose excessive action causes wrinkling of the skin. For example, the deep lines between the eyebrows (frown lines) are the most popular treatment sites.

Other areas which can be improved with Botox are the crow's feet and the horizontal forehead lines. Depending on the doctors' skill and experience, neckbands, certain lip lines, smile lines along the side of the nose, and droopy corners of the mouth may also be improved with Botox.

Who is a candidate for Botox?
Any person who wishes to minimize the aging process around the eyes and forehead region with minimal down time is an appropriate candidate for Botox injections. There is no minimum or maximum age for Botox treatments for an adult. Botox is not recommended for women who are pregnant or are nursing.
What areas can Botox be used?
Although Botox injections are typically used around the eyes, there are multiple other areas where Botox injections can be successfully used. Our expert team of injectors use Botox injections in the following areas:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines - between the eyebrows
- Crows feet - outer corner of eyes
- Droopy corners of mouth
- Lip lines - smokers line
- Neck bands
- Wide muscular jaws
- Excessive underarm sweating
- Excessive hand sweating
What other cosmetic treatments may be combined with Botox?
One of the greatest combination treatments involves the simultaneous use of Botox and Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. With this combo treatment, an "instant face lift" may be achieved by using Botox in the brow and forehead region, and Juvederm or Restylane around the cheeks, mouth, lips, and smile lines.
Can Botox be used for Migraines?
Botox is an effective treatment for Migraine headaches in some patients, providing up to 3-4 months of relief following a single treatment. A 2016 paper by the American Academy of Neurology states that Botox is established as safe and effective treatment for reducing the number of headache days and improving the quality of life in patients with chronic migraines.
Can Botox be used for Excessive Sweating?
Botox is an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, also know as excessive sweating effecting the under arms or the palms and has been used for that purpose in our facility for over a decade.
What about the other types of Botox used?
Botox is a brand name for botulinum toxin produced by the company Allergan. There are a number of other companies that make their own brand of botulinum toxin. These include products such as Dysport, Myobloc, and Xeomin.
Does it hurt?
Typically no anesthetic is needed for Botox injections. A small amount of Botox is administered using a very fine needle. Most patients experience very minimal discomfort. Anesthetic creams and special cooling devices are available to increase your comfort.
What is the cost?
The cost of Botox is per unit of Botox used which depends on the dose (number of units) used. Botox treatment cost for patients receiving 50 units or more is $10/unit. Botox treatment cost for patients receiving 30-49 units is $12/unit. Botox treatment cost for patients receiving 1-29 units is $14/unit. The amount of Botox used is measured in units and the larger and stronger the muscles being treated, the higher the number of units required to produce adequate relaxation. We are the #1 provider of Botox in Washington state and because of our purchasing power are able to offer this very competitive price on Botox to our patients.

What is the recovery like?
In general, no recovery time is needed. Botox treatments may be administered during a lunch break. You will be instructed not to rub the treated area for a couple of hours after the treatment. It is also a good idea to try to 'exercise' the treated muscles for the first few hours following the treatment, as this will increase the effectiveness of the Botox treatment.
How long will the results last?
Typically, it takes 4-5 days for the Botox to start to take effect, but it may take up to 2 weeks for its full effect. Results generally last between 4-6 months. As you notice the effects of the Botox wearing off call us and schedule your next appointment. We offer Botox treatments Monday through Friday and can often accommodate you on the same day that you call.
