Botox

Botox

Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest. BOTOX/DYSPORT works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form between the brows (results may vary).

You may feel that the moderate to severe glabellar lines “Frown lines” between your brows make you look tired or unapproachable, or you experience “Crow’s-feet” – the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes or “Forehead furrows” – the horizontal lines that form when you raise your eyebrows or you may have other reasons for being curious about BOTOX. Ask us about BOTOX/DYSPORT to find out if it is right for you. Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia.

With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time (results may vary), there are many reasons why BOTOX Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of women and their doctors. Approximately 11.8 million BOTOX Cosmetic procedures have been administered in the United States since 2002. BOTOX is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA.

Patients surveyed were satisfied with the results of their BOTOX Cosmetic experience (your results may vary).

My name is Lisa (Davenport) Walker, I graduated from WSU-ICNE and have been a RN-BSN for 28 years. I worked my first 13 years in NICU before transitioning to aesthetics. I’ve worked in the aesthetic field of nursing for 15 years and I’m still loving it. In addition to treating my own clients, I’ve been a trainer for Cutera Laser, Galderma (the supplier of Restylane and Dysport) and as an independent contractor. I’ve trained doctors, ARNPs, RNs and LPNs all over the country, including Washington, Oregon, Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado, and in Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton Canada.

I often come across new patients who have been completely satisfied with a provider they’d been seeing, but due to inconvenience of location, hours, or any number of reasons they’ve ended up seeing me. It is not only exciting to hear they loved who I’ve trained, but to see a look of relief when I tell them my relation to their prior provider. I believe in quality over quantity, and strive to achieve not only what the patient asks for but a result better than they thought possible. Every face is a new challenge and there is no, “paint by number approach” that suits everyone.

When not working I love hanging out with my husband and our combined five kids. Three of which are currently in college, two who have graduated and are out in the work force. I love all sports and especially love cheering on the WSU cougar football team!

    FAQs

    Botox is a purified protein that has the ability to relax muscles into which it is injected. This relaxation may be partial or complete, depending on the amount of Botox used and on the relative strength of the muscle into which it is injected. The relaxation produced by Botox is temporary and will gradually fade as the treated muscle will gradually 'wake up' over time.
    There are two different types of wrinkles on the face: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are present even with complete stillness and lack of expression on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear or become significantly more apparent with facial expression. Botox is ideal for treatment of dynamic wrinkles of the face and is used to relax those facial muscles whose excessive action causes wrinkling of the skin. For example, the deep lines between the eyebrows (frown lines) are the most popular treatment sites.

    Other areas which can be improved with Botox are the crow's feet and the horizontal forehead lines. Depending on the doctors' skill and experience, neckbands, certain lip lines, smile lines along the side of the nose, and droopy corners of the mouth may also be improved with Botox.
    Any person who wishes to look more rested and relaxed, and to minimize the aging process around the eyes and forehead region with little/no down time is an appropriate candidate for Botox injections. There is no minimum or maximum age for Botox treatments for an adult. Botox is not recommended for women who are pregnant or are nursing.
    Botox is an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, also know as excessive sweating effecting the under arms or the palms and has been used for that purpose in our facility for over a decade.
    Botox is a brand name for botulinum toxin produced by the company Allergan. There are a number of other companies that make their own brand of botulinum toxin. These include products such as Dysport, Myobloc, and Xeomin.
    Typically no anesthetic is needed for Botox injections. A small amount of Botox is administered using a very fine needle. Most patients experience very minimal discomfort. Anesthetic creams and special cooling devices are available to increase your comfort.
    Although Botox injections are typically used around the eyes, there are multiple other areas where Botox injections can be successfully used. Our expert team of injectors use Botox injections in the following areas:

    1. Forehead lines
    2. Frown lines - between the eyebrows
    3. Crows feet - outer corner of eyes
    4. Droopy corners of mouth
    5. Lip lines - smokers line
    6. Neck bands
    7. Wide muscular jaws
    8. Excessive underarm sweating
    9. Excessive hand sweating
    Botox injections produce a subtle relaxation which gives the face a 'rested' look. The results are very natural and you will still be able to make facial expressions.
    One of the greatest combination treatments involves the simultaneous use of Botox and Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. With this combo treatment, an "instant face lift" may be achieved by using Botox in the brow and forehead region, and Juvederm or Restylane around the cheeks, mouth, lips, and smile lines.
