Botulinum Type A injections (BOTOX® and Dysport®) are the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), reports 7,056,255 procedures were performed in a recent year, representing a 797% increase since the year 2000.

BOTOX for a More Youthful Look

Our BOTOX in Seattle treatment is popular for very good reasons. No one wants to look older, and BOTOX® has been clinically proven as a safe, convenient, and effective method of smoothing wrinkles. At Egrari Non-Invasive Center in Bellevue, we serve the Seattle area with BOTOX® injections performed with artistry and the highest level of technical skill – so you look more youthful and refreshed, rather than “frozen.”

What is Botox ® ?

  • A dramatically effective treatment to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyes and “crow’s feet.”
  • Our BOTOX® is also capable of treating facial and eye asymmetry. It can also be effective to elevate brows.
  • Approved by the FDA, Botulinum toxin, or BOTOX® works by hindering the motion of the muscles creating facial expressions. Once the carefully-targeted muscles are treated, the pull of relaxed and overlying skin flattens and smooths.
  • BOTOX® is different from fillers. Facial fillers add volume to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and creases.

How long does Botox last?

  • The motion-inhibition effect on the injected muscles brought about by our BOTOX in Bellevue treatment is temporary, and re-injection is typically needed every three months to maintain the smooth facial appearance.
  • Options for alternative treatment include injection of either facial fillers or fat, or surgical excision of the muscles, such as a brow-lift.

How is it Used?

  • BOTOX® is freshly prepared on the day of injection. Once prepared, the medication needs to be used within twelve hours to maintain potency.
  • Our BOTOX® in Seattle treatment is available every day in our state-of-the-art, luxury clinic.
  • Very small amounts of BOTOX® are injected into carefully-targeted muscles with a very tiny needle. Depending on the areas being treated, three to five needle pricks (or more) per area may be required.
  • Discomfort is minimal and lasts only a few seconds.
  • Dr. Egrari and his providers use a very detailed artistic and scientific method and will recommend “brushes” of BOTOX® in various facial areas.
  • Fact: BOTOX® has been used safely in the treatment of muscular facial spasms for over fifteen years.

Side Effects of BOTOX: Safe and Effective

  • The most common side effect is pinpoint bruising at the injection site which is easily hidden with makeup.
  • If any BOTOX® trickles into other facial muscles, it can cause a rare side effect, a slight weakening of those muscles. (We urge our clients to avoid any massaging of the injected areas for 12 hours following the injections and insist that you avoid any strenuous activities 24 hours after the injections.)

BOTOX ® Injections to Treat Frown Lines and Crow’s Feet

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment approved for temporarily improving the appearance of both crow’s feet and moderate to severe frown lines between brows. After receiving our BOTOX in Bellevue treatment, you can expect to see noticeable improvement in frown lines within 1 to 2 days. To treat frown lines, Dr. Egrari and his providers will administer 5 injections in the muscles of your forehead. For crow’s feet, they will place 3 injections in the muscles that frame the sides of the eye.

Why BOTOX is so popular: It works.

The reason BOTOX® is so effective is that it targets the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet – repeated muscle contractions with frowning and squinting. Injections of BOTOX® in these muscles temporarily reduces motion and activity. Within a few days after treatment, you will notice visible smoothing of crow’s feet and frown lines between the brows.

Benefits of BOTOX ®

It is easy to see why BOTOX® is the number one minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment in the nation. This “lunch hour” procedure offers many benefits for patients:

  • It is performed without anesthesia: Small needles are used in the treatment, so you only feel a tiny prick with each injection.
  • Results are visible in only a few days: You can expect to see results within 5 to 7 days after treatment.
  • The procedure is quick: Depending on the number of treatment areas, injections may only take approximately 15 minutes.
  • There is no downtime: You can literally fit treatment into your lunch hour and return to work immediately after the procedure.
  • It smoothes frown lines and dynamic wrinkles for younger-looking skin.
  • It can be injected in the eye area: BOTOX® is an effective treatment for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles in the creasing of the eyes.
  • Results are not irreversible: No worries about a major commitment as the relaxing and smoothing effects of BOTOX® last 3 to 4 months on average.
  • Treatment can be tailored to individual needs: Dr. Egrari and his providers can custom-tailor your treatment based on your individual needs and treatment goals to give you the best experience in BOTOX Seattle has to offer.
