Much like feet leave prints on soft ground, smiles and frowns leave trails on faces, mapping out the fastest routes from noses to treasures hidden under muttonchops. Erase traces with today's Groupon: for $84, you get 12 units of Botox at Seattle Medical Aesthetics (a $168 value). The 12 units can effectively treat moderate to severe wrinkles in one area; however, some patients may require more.
Licensed doctors Susan Petcoff and Lynne Haspedis undo the signs of aging with medical-grade, protein-based Botox treatments. Botox offers a nonsurgical means for banishing expression lines insistent on crashing your face's party. The simple, in-office procedure involves a few tiny injections of a purified botulism toxin, paralyzing muscular frowniness and temporarily reducing the appearance of wrinkles and brow squiggles. Unlike the results garnered from cryogenically freezing your face, Botox results are easy to acquire and don't impact your ability to be alive. Additionally, the FDA-approved treatment requires minimal downtime, enabling taut face-tarps to quickly resume protecting the delicate circuitry of brain computers.
Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
Seattle Medical Aesthetics
At the helm of Seattle Medical Aesthetics are Drs. Susan Petcoff and Lynne Haspedis, who have both been practicing medicine in Seattle since 1988. Both board-certified physicians also come from backgrounds in obstetrics and gynecology, making them particularly qualified to address the concerns of women who flock to the center for anti-aging treatments. Skin-smoothing injections of Botox and Juvéderm are a center specialty, as are prescription-grade chemical peels and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments that do everything from correcting uneven pigmentation and restricting hair growth to helping skin reminisce about its disco-dancing days. Licensed aesthetician Darla Green is also on hand to recommend products by SkinCeuticals, ViDerm, and Glytone, and to share tips she learned while working as a makeup artist for film and TV.
