Our Seattle BOTOX Treatments
to Smooth Wrinkles
The beauty of the face is perceived by a range of factors, including the appearance of our skin. When the face has smooth, soft, radiant skin, it enhances the facial features, accentuating natural beauty. As the years pass, the smooth, fresh, supple look slowly diminishes. developing and the following common aesthetic issues:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines between brows
- Chin wrinkles
- Horizontal forehead creases
- Vertical neck bands
- Lipstick lines
The beauty of our BOTOX in Bellevue is that it directly treats the source of the problem. The primary cause is the constant motion of facial muscles. This ongoing motion, whether frowning, squinting, or raising the brows will eventually lead to etched-in lines and creases.
When BOTOX is injected into specifically targeted facial muscles, it temporarily halts the constant motion. This allows them to return to their normal shape and position, restoring the smooth and beautiful appearance of your skin.
BOTOX for Jaw Contouring
Although a strong and square jaw may be an aesthetic goal for some, many people are unhappy with having a jaw that appears to be too strong or too large in relation to the other facial features.
One of the most common causes of the issue is overdeveloped jaw muscles. This can be the results of teeth clenching or teeth grinding, while awake or asleep. This constant strain essentially leads to heavier jaw muscles, impacting the proportions of your facial features. Some patients are genetically programmed to have naturally large or bulky jaw muscles.
BOTOX can be used to relax the muscles in the jaw for an extended period, reducing muscle size and restoring a softer, more feminine facial contour. The treatment can also be used on patients with facial asymmetry to bring balance to their appearance.
The location for your Seattle BOTOX injections will be precise, based on the information gathered from a thorough examination of your jaw and jaw muscles. The quantity of BOTOX used will also be determined by your individual condition and what you hope to achieve.
Whether you are 25 and are starting to see superficial lines around your face, or you are in your 50s and have deeper, more visible creases, you have options to maintain or restore your once youthful look.
BOTOX is an affordable, safe and effective procedure to treat visible signs of aging. It’s one of the most popular and versatile cosmetic injectables available on the market today. BOTOX contains a purified form of botulinum toxin, a naturally occurring substance that aids in the reduction of skin wrinkles, lines, folds and other facial flaws. It is a great non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation in Bellevue.
Common Reasons for Considering BOTOX
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- Deep frown lines between the eyebrows
- Wrinkles around the eyes commonly known as “crow’s feet”
- Horizontal wrinkles across the forehead
- Vertical neck bands
- Lipstick lines
- Chin wrinkles
BOTOX directly treats the source of the problem causing your wrinkles. We all know that squinting, frowning and even laughing can cause our muscles to strain and over the course of the day, months and even years, they become overused and it gets harder and harder for those muscles to relax. Once your muscles become stuck, they begin to disrupt the skin above causing the wrinkles and folds in your skin.
BOTOX is used to weaken your strained facial muscles temporarily. This does not mean that you will not be able to make facial expressions and it won’t leave you with a “frozen” appearance. BOTOX allows your muscles to return to their normal shape and position restoring your once smooth and wrinkle-free appearance.
While BOTOX is safe, aesthetic results can vary depending on the skill of the injector. It is important you choose the right doctor to perform any treatments you may be considering.

The Benefits of Botox

- There’s no anesthetic — With the use of small needles, you will only feel a small prick around the treatment area. Minimal to zero discomfort.
- Visible results after a few days — You can expect to see the results of your treatment one day to three days after the injections.
- There’s no downtime — BOTOX is a non-surgical treatment by injection. There is no downtime and you can plan on fitting in a treatment during your regular daily activities.
- It’s cost effective — Cosmetic treatments can be a strain on anyone’s budget. BOTOX is charged per area, which means it could work out to be less expensive than you might think.
Am I a good candidate for BOTOX?
Do you look in the mirror and wonder what happened to your once-youthful skin? Has someone mistaken you for being older than you are? Or maybe you are just starting to see the first signs of “crow’s feet” appear.
Being realistic about your goals is important. BOTOX is not a way to achieve perfection. BOTOX will not make you look like you did when you were 20. If you are merely concerned with improving the way you look and want to become the best version of yourself today, BOTOX is a great choice to revitalize and refresh your look.

What to Expect with a BOTOX Treatment
It is very common to have questions before any treatment. We want you to know that our team at Serenity Rejuvenation Center in Bellevue is here to address any concerns you may have. BOTOX injections work beneath the skin. Injections are made with a fine gauge needle directly into your muscles, temporarily reducing muscle activity. You will feel a pinching sensation as the treatment is being applied. The injections will relax your muscles so that your wrinkles will diminish, and your skin will become smoother.
Initially, you may not notice any difference. Within the first to third week, you will notice crow’s feet and frown lines fading away. You will still look like yourself, but without the deep wrinkling — a thoroughly refreshed and rejuvenated look! Results can last up to four months. For the best BOTOX Bellevue has to offer, we ask you to avoid heating yourself up, such as hot yoga, gym after treatment the day of and resume regular activities next day.
