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.
