Options for Reducing Wrinkleshow to reduce the appearance of wrinkles botox fillers seattle

Cosmetic Botox, or Botulinum Toxin, is an excellent way to get rid of forehead lines, frown lines between your brows, and those “crows feet” around your eyes. Botox can also help give you a more refreshed look by a slight lift of your brows and a softening of the upper lip lines. The appointment is quick and easy but will give you a beautiful, refreshed look for several months.

If you are feeling a bit saggy, maybe it’s time for a filler.

Dermal Fillers are a safe and easy way to help get back facial volume loss that happens over time. The majority of fillers I use are Hyaluronic acid-based. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our bodies. Some fillers are designed to lift and contour, while others are used for volume and fullness. All options will leave you with a long lasting, smooth and very natural look.

If it’s the double chin that’s bothering you, then Kybella is the answer.

Submental fullness (or double chin) happens for several reasons.Some being genetics, aging or weight gain.

Kybella is a deoxycolic acid derived from a plant. It destroys fat cells, allowing your body to retract the skin. It is a permanent treatment for submental fat and can improve the appearance and profile of fat below your chin. You may need more then one treatment which are spaced out at least one month apart. You will see noticeable improvement 6-8 weeks after treatment.

Fillers available at Seattle Skin and Laser/Northwest Dermatology include:

  • Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
  • Juvederm Voluma XC
  • Juvederm Volbella
  • Kybella

Pre-treatment 

As with any injection, there is always a slight chance of bruising. Two weeks prior to your appointment, try to avoid aspirin or aspirin products, omega 3, vitamin E, ginseng, and ginkgo Bilbao.

Allow two weeks after your appointment for recovery time for any bruising that may occur. If bruising does occur it can usually be covered nicely with makeup.

  1. There seems to be so many different options. What’s the difference between them all? What would you recommend for getting rid of crows feet around the eyes?

    • Botox injections may be an option but we also use lasers to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. We recommend seeing someone who can evaluate your facial structure, skin type and skin condition to determine the right procedure for you.
