Bellevue, WA area patients who are faced with the signs of aging, including wrinkles and folds, are encouraged to take the time to learn about the options available to them. Dr. Fredric Stern of The Stern Center for Aesthetic Surgery welcomes new and existing patients into the office to learn about solutions including Botox injections.
How does Botox work?
Botox is a special treatment that requires a doctor to administer medication directly into the muscles of the face. This, in turn, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face that can contribute to an aging appearance. Botox is formulated with botulinum toxin type A, which is safe and effective for addressing muscle contractions. In fact, it is used in many other areas of medicine to treat problems such as overactive bladder and chronic tension headaches and migraines. Botox is completely safe, and has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic and medical use.
Who is a candidate for Botox injections?
Botox injections can be used for adult men and women to address unwanted wrinkles and folds on the facial area. This includes areas such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead folds
- Wrinkles between the eyebrows
Determining candidacy starts with a consultation visit and initial examination with Dr. Fredric Stern. During this visit, the doctor will evaluate the patient’s facial imperfections and speak to the patient about their medical history. Patients may have areas that would respond better to other injectables such as dermal fillers or collagen stimulators. By assessing the patient’s appearance and speaking to them about what they would like to achieve with cosmetic treatments, we can make appropriate recommendations. We may even suggest combining traditional dermal fillers with Botox injections for a complete transformation.
