Botox® Treatment in Issaquah, WA

Botox® is known for its ability to effectively reduce wrinkles and fine lines and is a popular choice for those seeking minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. Sherisse Hill, RN, MSN, ARNP, FNP(C), at SHADe is a top provider of Botox® in Issaquah. Her refined injection technique and knowledgeability when it comes to cosmetic injectables allows her to provide transformative, yet natural-looking, facial enhancement with Botox®.

What is Botox®?

Botox® was the first injectable neuromodulator to receive FDA-approval for cosmetic use. Since its introduction in 2002, it has become one of the most requested and widely recognized aesthetic treatments for wrinkle reduction.

The active ingredient in Botox® is botulinum toxin type A. Sherisse can inject small, precise amounts of Botox® into specific facial muscles to temporarily relax them, releasing facial expression lines, or dynamic wrinkles, and enhancing facial contours.

What Can Botox® Treat?

Botox® is a versatile injectable treatment solution for a variety of aesthetic concerns. With her advanced training and experience, Sherisse can provide safe, effective Botox® treatments for:

– Frown lines – Botox® is a go-to treatment for frown lines, or “11” lines. Medically known as glabellar lines, these vertical wrinkles form between the brows, contributing to an aged appearance and making us look upset even when we aren’t.

– Forehead wrinkles – Horizontal creases across the forehead can be eased with strategic Botox® injections.

– Crow’s feet – These dynamic lines branch out from the outer corner of the eye and form when we smile and laugh.

– Bunny lines – Botox® can be injected to smooth away fine lines that develop on the upper bridge of the nose.

– Lip lines – Perioral lines, or lip lines, are fine vertical lines that develop around the mouth.

– Drooping brow – Sherisse offers a non-surgical Botox® brow lift to rejuvenate the forehead and brow areas.
– Downturned smile – Botox® can be injected to lift the corners of the mouth, correcting a downturned smile.

– Chin dimpling – Small dents in the chin area caused by muscle contractions can be minimized with Botox®.

– Jawline narrowing – Overactive masseter muscles can be relaxed with Botox® to create a slimmer, more feminine jawline contour.

– TMJ symptoms – Masseter Botox® can also help to alleviate discomfort associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues.

– Gummy smile – Botox® injections can reduce gum visibility when smiling to address concerns about a “gummy” smile.

– Nose slimming – Sherisse can use advanced techniques to create a slimmer nose shape with Botox®.

What to Expect During Botox®

 

Botox® treatments are generally quick; it often takes just a few minutes to perform the injections. However, total treatment times vary based on the extent of the individual’s unique procedure.

Anesthesia is not required, and with Sherisse’s gentle injection technique, many patients easily tolerate their Botox® treatments. A topical numbing cream can also be used to ensure maximum comfort during the injection process.

Before administering the injections, the treatment site will be cleansed, and Sherisse will locate the ideal injection sites. She will then perform the necessary injections using a very fine needle.

What to Expect After Botox®

 

No dedicated recovery period is required after Botox®. In fact, many patients choose to have Botox® treatments over their lunch break and return to work after their appointment. Post-treatment, you may experience minor swelling or redness at the injection sites. These symptoms typically resolve on their own in a short time.

Sherisse will give you detailed post-treatment instructions to follow to promote an optimal treatment outcome. Though there is no need for downtime, it is important to refrain from massaging the treated area(s) for several hours after your injections. You will also want to wait 24 hours before resuming high-intensity physical activities.

Botox® Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Botox® Treatment Work?
K
L

When injected, Botox® works to temporarily block nerve signals to the muscles, reducing their activity. With the muscles held in a state of relaxation, the overlying skin can also relax, so the skin regains a smoother, more youthful appearance. Sherisse takes exceptional care to determine the optimal dosage and injection sites to achieve aesthetic improvements while still allowing for natural-looking facial expressions.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Botox®?
K
L
Botox® is a safe, suitable option for patients of many ages, skin tones, and skin types. Candidates must be in good health and must not be allergic to any ingredients in the Botox® formulation. Sherisse will conduct a comprehensive review of your health history and examine the proposed treatment sites in order to determine if Botox® is the best approach for your needs.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?

The timeline for your Botox® results will depend on the type of treatment you received. During your consultation, Sherisse will advise you of a realistic timeframe for accomplishing your specific aesthetic goals with Botox®.

It usually takes about two weeks to see the full effect of a Botox® treatment for wrinkle reduction, but many patients notice initial improvements within a week of their injections.

Results for masseter Botox® for jawline slimming may not begin to appear for two to three weeks, and it may be four to six weeks before the full impact of your treatment is revealed. This is because a longer period of inactivity is often necessary before the muscle begins to noticeably lose some of its mass.

How Long Does Botox® Last?
K
L
Botox® is intended to provide temporary enhancement, so its effects will wear off over time. On average, results last three to four months. Maintenance treatments can be scheduled at regular intervals, as needed, so you can enjoy your rejuvenated look, long-term.
What Is the Cost of Botox® for Facial Enhancement?
K
L
Every patient is unique, so Sherisse tailors every Botox® treatment she performs to the distinct needs, anatomy, and goals of the individual. The price of a Botox® treatment reflects the number of units required, overall complexity of the treatment, and other considerations. Your customized treatment plan, along with the associated cost information, will be reviewed with you during your consultation.
