BOTOX ® – Tukwila, WA

Reduce Signs of Aging

 You’ve likely contorted your face to show that you’re happy, sad, scared, angry, disgusted, or surprised. In fact, according to researchers at Ohio State University, humans can make 21 different facial expressions to show their range of emotions. Each time you make one of these expressions, the muscles underneath your skin tense and bunch up, causing the elastin under your face to begin breaking down, which creates wrinkles and fine lines that make you appear older. Other factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and genetics can make wrinkles appear as well. Fortunately, Dr. Timmerman is a trained cosmetic dentist and offers BOTOX treatment to help restore your youthful glow and allow you to feel more confident in your appearance.

What is it Like Getting BOTOX?

BOTOX injections utilize diluted botulinum toxin to freeze muscles in your face, helping them to relax and release wrinkles and fine lines. It’s used in small doses to ease facial lines caused by frowning or aging. Typically, patients begin to notice results within five days that last between three and six months.

When you first visit Dr. Timmerman for BOTOX injections, he’ll discuss your goals with you to determine what muscles to inject the treatment into. Each one takes approximately five to 10 minutes to administer, so depending on how many injections you’d like, appointments can last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour.
