Botox and Derma Filler
Many patients who are just beginning to show signs of facial aging desire improvement, but cannot justify the cost or time investment required for surgical options. For these patients, the rapidly expanding arena of in-office injectable treatments are perfect to suit their needs.
BOTOX® Cosmetic in Bellevue WA
Real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time…
BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily improves the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows—with results that can last from 6 weeks to eight months.
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscles can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines.
Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect.
And if you are pleased with your BOTOX® Cosmetic results, you may want to consider a regular treatment plan to help maintain them. You can receive injections every 3 to 4 months as long as you don’t have any serious allergic reactions or other significant side effects.
Facial Fillers in Bellevue WA
Injectable dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars.
Skin is naturally held tight and smooth by three critical components: collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. These chemicals combine to create a firm, spongy meshwork under the skin surface. This elastic structure keeps the skin surface smooth and firm. With age, this meshwork slowly loses its integrity. And with weakness in the underlying support structure, the skin’s surface loses its perfect baby-skin smoothness.
Injecting cosmetic fillers helps fill the thinned-out meshwork. The fillers plump up the tissue underneath skin, shrinking wrinkles. The skin becomes firmer, smoother, and younger-looking.
Facial (dermal) fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.
Although they can’t help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These treatments aren’t permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained.
At La Belle Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic, we offer Juvederm as our facial filler of choice. During your initial consultation, we will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired overall results.
