Relax away wrinkles with Dysport, Xeomin, or Botox Cosmetic in Kirkland WA
Dr. Mark Tseng is well known as a skilled plastic surgeon, but he also offers a variety of premier nonsurgical aesthetic treatments at his Auburn and Kirkland, WA offices. One of the most requested is Botox Cosmetic, which is popular for its ability to temporarily smooth away crow’s feet. Dr. Tseng also offers Dysport and Xeomin, which are similar formulas with similar uses.
How wrinkle relaxers work?
Technically, there are two types of Botox. The formulas are the same, but indications and dosage are different. Botox is for sweating, migraines, and other medical uses, while Botox Cosmetic is for wrinkles and fine lines. Further confusing the issue, there are multiple brands with very similar (though not identical) formulas that are used for cosmetic applications. In keeping with our commitment to quality, we offer Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin, all of which are excellent products. Subtle differences might make one a better choice for a specific patient, which Dr. Tseng will discuss during your consultation.
These products work on a very specific type of wrinkle, which is caused by muscle rigidity.
- Common facial expressions involve the same tiny muscles, which are used many times a day. Over the years, those muscles become hypercontracted, causing lines and wrinkles in overlying skin.
- Botox and similar formulas are not direct muscle relaxers. Instead, the regulate the nerve signals that cause those muscles to relax.
- The action of these medications is localized, so it is injected exactly where it is needed. For example, an injection of Botox in your forehead will smooth frown lines but will not spread to other areas of your face.
About the procedure
During your pre-treatment evaluation we will determine which muscles are responsible for fine lines and wrinkles. Tiny amounts of Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, or Xeomin is injected directly into those muscles. Most commonly, injection sites are around the eyes, between the brows, and on the forehead.
Anesthesia is not required, as the injections are quite gentle, although we do offer topical numbing if you wish. The procedure is completed in minutes, with no downtime. The results are not instant but develop gradually within a few days to a week. Treatment can be repeated as needed (usually every six weeks) to maintain results.
Before today gets away from me in these very chaotic times I thought I’d let you know that I am truly thankful that Graham had suggested that I meet with you before making any plans for surgery on my hands.
I greatly appreciate the care you’ve given me, the extraordinary skills you have and the sincere concern you show for me as a person not just “an appointment” on your busy calendar. Again, I am so thankful that Graham directed me to you!
Thanks for all you do and the personal concern you show!
Dr. Tseng is absolutely amazing. He helped me when I was badly burned in a firework accident a few years back. Half of my face was burned off and I had 3rd and 2nd degree burns on my hand, my wrist, and up my arm and my neck. If it wasn’t for him I don’t think things would have turned out as well as they did. I barely have any scars now which is shocking considering what damage was done initially. He was an excellent provider, has seriously remarkable skills and I would highly recommend him to anyone that I care about.
Thanks again Dr. Tseng!!

I wouldn’t let anyone else do my surgery, only Dr Tseng.
I suffered from carpel tunnel syndrome and tendinitis in my right hand. Meeting and working with Dr. Tseng has been the best experience ever. He is patient, kind, pays attention to detail, explains the process to you thoroughly and in a language that you understand. If you’re looking for a medical professional and has an excellent bedside manner and that does quality work this is who you want to get connected with. Although I am two weeks post-op, I can say that this is the best experience I’ve ever had .
I had a pinched nerve, with problems with my insurance. The lady at the front desk and this doctor went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of as fast as possible to save the feeling in my fingers and hand. Surgery went great, Its been about 8/9 months and I have probably regained 95% of my feeling. I never write reviews. But this doctor and his very nice front desk lady are amazing.
The best at what he does. Friendly, includes you everything that has to be done. Answer’s all your questions. Dr Mark is the best
