At Krueger Aesthetics, Dr. Ronald Krueger and his team of professionals in Mukilteo, Washington, work alongside patients to assist them in reaching their cosmetic goals for the face and body. This includes concerns regarding the development of fine lines and wrinkles that form due to increased skin laxity. If you are interested in smoothing away skin imperfections in a more conservative manner than surgery, you may be the perfect candidate for certain cosmetic injectables such as Botox.
Dermal fillers are another option for patients seeking injectable treatments for their facial appearance, but Botox works differently than these hyaluronic acid gels. Instead of adding volume to the wrinkles, Botox is injected into the facial muscles that tighten and form wrinkles with time. Botox is a neuromodulator, or neurotoxin used not only for more well-known esthetic purposes but also for treating certain medical concerns such as chronic migraines or overactive bladder.
Absolutely! In fact, Botox wrinkle injections are best for dynamic wrinkles of the face that are caused by muscle tension, making it best for forehead wrinkles, glabellar lines (the “elevens” between the eyebrows), and the formation of crow’s feet caused by the upper cheek muscles. When Botox is injected into these specific areas, it allows the muscles to relax and smoothen wrinkles throughout the upper third of the face in both men and women.
Many patients who visit Krueger Aesthetics looking to have Botox injections performed are often those seeking a more conservative way to combat the unwanted signs of aging. While plastic surgery procedures such as a forehead lift, brow lift, or facelift can definitely improve the appearance of one’s facial skin by tightening it, it is an invasive procedure that requires extensive downtime–and cost. Instead, using Botox or other cosmetic injectables available with Dr. Ronald Krueger is the best way to start treating the signs of aging in a nonsurgical manner. It often delays the need for plastic surgery for many of our patients, especially those in their 30s and 40s.
When you consult with the team at Krueger Aesthetics of Mukilteo, Washington, we evaluate you to determine if you could benefit from this or other cosmetic injectables. Botox is best for dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle tension, while other injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers, may be best for nasolabial folds or wrinkles around the lips. Discussing your goals with Dr. Ronald Krueger and his team is the first step in determining candidacy for this or other treatments readily available at our office.
We are open to new and returning patients, ready to turn back the hands of time!
