What is Botox®?

Botox is perhaps the most popular and well-known cosmetic treatment in Seattle. Scientifically, Botox is called a neuromodulator. A neuromodulator is a substance that affects the brain’s messaging system. Botox prevents your brain from sending neural signals to the muscle that causes the facial wrinkle. This blocks the target muscle from receiving that brain signal, which, in turn, prevents that specific muscle from moving–ultimately stopping the overlying skin from contracting over the muscle. This prevents the formation of that particular wrinkle or fold, keeping your skin smooth and taut.

Does Botox® Freeze the Face?

A popular misconception of Botox is that it will freeze your entire face. This is totally false. In fact, one of the major advantages of Botox is how specific this treatment is–it will only work on the injected muscle without affecting surrounding muscles.

Botox is incredibly popular in Seattle for treating wrinkles that cause facial expressions, such as:

  • Forehead lines
  • Glabellar lines (“11” lines in between your eyes)
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Wrinkles caused by facial emotions, such as raising your eyebrows, squinting, smiling, frowning, or pursing your lips.
