As a wrinkle reduction treatment, BOTOX® is by far the most popular. Every day, more and more people are discovering what this simple cosmetic fix can do to improve the appearance of their facial skin. In Kennewick, the summer sun damages our facial skin, and in the winter, the cold dry air has an equally negative influence. Dynamic wrinkles become more visible, and every time we smile or frown, those irksome crow’s feet and marionette lines appear. Without the need for surgery, abrasive resurfacing, or chemical peels, you can smooth away those fine lines merely by getting BOTOX® injections.
How BOTOX® Works
BOTOX® is a purified protein solution approved by the Food and Drug Administration for cosmetic use. The serum acts as a muscle relaxant, blocking nerve signals that instruct facial muscles to contract. When the solution is injected into the muscles that lie just beneath the facial skin, the nerve endings that normally instruct the muscles to contract can no longer relay the information.
Within days after the fluid is injected, our Kennewick clients notice a smoother, more youthful countenance. Especially noticeable is the lack of thin wrinkle lines that form near the corners of the mouth and around the eyes when pursing of the lips or widening of the eyes is performed. The effect lasts for a number of months, after which repeat injections are necessary in order to maintain that youthful look. Patients unwilling to opt for more invasive methods tend to prefer this simple treatment.
We Want to Consult with You
Here at our clinic, we can examine your facial features and look closely at the areas where dynamic wrinkles appear. We can also examine the size and strength of your facial muscles. This allows us to inject the fluid in just the right places and in just the right dosage.
The injection procedure only takes a matter of minutes to perform, so we can treat you the same day you come in to consult with us. You can therefore schedule your consultation around other activities without disruption of your daily routine.
