Sooner or later, you may find that your youthful complexion was altered by wrinkles, creases, and fine lines. If you wish to look younger, BOTOX® can be an effective, minimally invasive solution. This injectable cosmetic treatment can provide a more confident appearance by reducing the visibility of wrinkles. Mercer Island Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is proud to offer BOTOX® treatments for our patients in Mercer Island, WA.

How is BOTOX® Used?

Many of your prominent facial wrinkles are caused by muscle contractures. BOTOX is injected beneath the skin, where it relaxes the muscles that cause these wrinkles and lines. Specifically, BOTOX eases muscles that cause worry lines in the glabella (the space between the eyebrows), laugh lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. As these muscles relax, the wrinkles that they cause smooth out, yielding a more youthful and radiant complexion.

What Should I Expect from My BOTOX® Treatment?

Each injection is performed in-office and takes just a few minutes. Patients who receive BOTOX® injections report little or no pain. And, once the injections are completed, you are free to resume your normal activities, even heading back to work if you so desire.

Most of the time, it takes about a week for patients to notice the results of their BOTOX® injection. The effects of the injection will often increase over the course of several months. While the effects of BOTOX® are not permanent, routine “touch-ups” or maintenance injections can be used to extend your results.

You should only trust your BOTOX® treatment plan to a professional skilled in using injectable products. As an oral surgeon, Dr. Matthew T. Streelman of Mercer Island Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is the type of experienced doctor you need.
