Dr. Tseng is recognized as being one of the most talented plastic surgeons practicing in the Seattle area. He is at the forefront of aesthetic technology, allowing his patients to also experience all the benefits of non-surgical treatment, including his treatment for Botox in Kirkland and Bellevue. In Bellevue Botox injections are one of the most popular of all anti-aging treatments – because they work. Botox temporarily smooths away crow’s feet, brow creases, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Dr. Tseng also offers wrinkle correction with Dysport or Xeomin. Are you ready to look years younger?
Botox is one of the most thoroughly tested of all cosmetic injectables. Millions of women and men around the world rely on Botox to look young and refreshed. At our offices in Bellevue & Kirkland Botox is used to block the nerve signals to specific muscle strands to halt the constant muscle contractions that cause wrinkles and lines to appear. Dysport is a thinner formula that diffuses more easily and is better suited for some individuals to smooth away forehead furrows. Xeomin was developed without the added proteins found in Botox and is often the best choice when Botox stops producing results.
If you see your skin developing etched-in lines and wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for Botox injections. Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are injected to smooth away lines and creases on specific facial areas:
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are used to smooth "dynamic wrinkles," the wrinkles caused by facial motions. Common facial expressions involve the same tiny muscles, activated hundreds of times a day. Over the years, those muscles become hypercontracted, causing lines and wrinkles in overlying skin. The action of these neuromodulators is localized, and with Dr. Tseng's Botox injections in Kirkland, he will ensure the injections are placed precisely where they are needed to produce smooth, natural-looking results.
During your pre-evaluation for Botox treatment in Kirkland and Bellevue, Dr. Tseng will determine which muscles are causing the fine lines and wrinkles. Tiny amounts of Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, or Xeomin are then injected directly into those muscles. The injection sites are usually around the eyes, between the brows and on the forehead. Your treatment takes just a few minutes and does not involve any downtime.
You will not need to set aside time to recover from your injections. You may experience pinpoint bruising or redness at the injection site, which can be hidden with makeup and fades quickly. It is important that the product remains localized, so avoid touching, massaging, scratching, or rubbing the treated area for at least 4 hours. Following their Botox Kirkland and Bellevue patients should avoid any strenuous activity for 24 hours.
The full skin-smoothing effect of Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport can be seen in as early as one week but will settle and you will see your final result at two weeks. After their Botox Kirkland and Bellevue patients can maintain their refreshed, youthful look with injections about every three to four months.
Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are all neuromodulators with the same active ingredient but with slightly different formulas. They each produce a similar result, but every person has a unique physiology, and one of these products may produce a superior outcome for you.
Xeomin has no additives and is pure, which may be more effective for some patients, particularly if they have consistently had Botox injections, but notice that Botox no longer produces the effect it had in the past. Dysport has the advantage of being a thinner formula that spreads more easily and may be ideal for patients with deep forehead creases. It also works a little faster, so if you have an upcoming event and speed of results are important, Dysport may be right for you.
Although Botox has been in use for many years and is very safe and effective, the best results require top-level injection skills. You need to be confident your skin will look fresh and natural, not frozen, expressionless, or fake. When under the care of Dr. Tseng, your face is in the hands of a plastic surgeon with a deep understanding of the facial musculature.
