Here is what our customers had to say about botox on Groupon:
“I visited Dr. Hu on a Friday when his front desk staff was off, but was warned in advance so there was no confusion. Dr. Hu came to the front desk soon after I got there and took me right back for a botox treatment. He was pleasant and informative, and the whole visit was complete in short order. He mentioned that he honors the Groupon price for repeat visits. I was very satisfied with the experience..”-Vicki H.
“Hands down, my best experience getting fillers. I’ve had fillers in the past and Bekheit took the time to properly assess my lips to see where I needed the volume and where I did not. He was so gentle, I have practically no bruising and very minor swelling. He also booked my sister and mom and the same time and they were also very happy with their results. We will definitely be coming back..”-Karen V.
“Awesome experience. First time getting Botox. I sense an addiction coming on! The doctor explained my options and how many units of Botox it would take for the three areas where it can be used. I selected what I wanted, he applied it (you feel a tiny needle pinch but it’s super quick) and that was it! In and out. The lady in the reception area is beautiful, kind and helpful. Sweet assistant also!.”-Karime A.
“I went to Med Spa for the first time and I must say it was a lovely experience! The place is really cute and homey, I went in for Botox. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by Denise whom is the nicest sweetest person I have ever encountered at a any front desk. Then I was treated by Beata, she was equally as nice and made me feel very comfortable. I will be back!.”-Cynthia M.
“Anu RN is delightful and talented. I love my new lips. Get the Groupon. They say they will match the price but they truly don’t. I should of purchased total of 50 units at the Groupon price and juvederm syringes at Groupon price but she said she would match the price. I ended up paying $14.99 per unit and $499 per Juvederm syringe. So get the Groupon! And even better if Groupon has an added sale..”-Georgina e.
“I was super happy with my experience. The office is clean and beautiful. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Cole is definitely great at his profession. It was important to me to see a Board Certified Dermatologist. I was new to Botox and very nervous so I only did the 20 units (basically one location on your face). The injections were quick and painless. I had such a great experience that I will definitely be going back for an additional area..”-Erica V.

Botox® Cosmetic is an excellent way for a patient interested in improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to do so without having to experience extended downtime or discomfort. This product has given countless people the anti-aging results they desire. Why not let it help you, too? North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics offers Botox® to residents in Seattle, Everett and neighboring communities.
Smooth Wrinkles and Fine Lines with Botox® Cosmetic at North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics!
Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most popular injectable treatments available today with over 10 million vials sold in the United States alone since 2002. This product is FDA approved to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet.
How Does Botox® Work?
Many wrinkles are the result of repeated muscle contractions, caused when people make facial expressions like smiling, squinting, laughing, and speaking. Botox® Cosmetic is formulated with botulinum toxin. When injected into the muscles of the face, it temporarily reduces their activity, smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles they cause. Because this muscle relaxation only lasts for three or four months, patients have to undergo periodic injections to maintain their results.
Botox® Case 1
Is Botox® Safe?
Botox® Cosmetic is the most extensively studied aesthetic treatment available today. It has been the subject of over 400 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals. Because it has been so thoroughly studied, patients interested in Botox® Cosmetic can take comfort knowing they’re receiving an injectable that is both safe and effective. This product has also been approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries and has been used for the past 17 years to safely treat a broad range of medical conditions.
What Can Botox® be Used to Treat?
Botox® Cosmetic can be used to correct nearly any wrinkle caused by facial movement. This includes:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Chin dimpling
What Can I Expect from Botox®?
Each Botox® Cosmetic injection usually takes less than 10 minutes to complete. If a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area before beginning injections, the entire duration of each session usually lasts about 30 minutes. Because of our topical numbing cream and the fine needles we use for injection, any discomfort felt is usually brief and easily managed.
Following injections, some patients may experience rashes, itching, neck or back pain, bruising, swelling, or muscle stiffness. Fortunately, these side effects usually fade within a few days of receiving treatment.
What is Botox®?
Wrinkles and lines on the face are caused by the repeated muscular contractions involved in frowning, squinting, smiling and other types of facial expressions. Botox® Cosmetic is an agent that relaxes these muscles, thereby smoothing out the overlying lines and wrinkles.
What is the difference between Botox® and other brands like Dysport® ?
Botox® and Dysport® are all commercial formulations that are produced by different companies and all are approved by the FDA for moderate-to-severe frown lines. Each product is slightly different as far as the chemical make-up and packaging, but all three have the same active ingredient.
How long does it last?
The effects of Botox® usually last three to four months. After several treatments, the effects of Botox® Cosmetic may begin to last longer.
When will I see results from a Botox® treatment?
Within days you may see a marked improvement in the injected areas. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to four months.
Where can Botox® be used?
Botox® can be used for frown lines, the upper forehead, around the eyes for crow’s feet and for manipulating the shape and height of the brow and corners of the mouth.
How long will the treatment take?
After an initial consultation with the dermatologist, the treatment itself will only take about five minutes, depending on the size and number of areas to be treated. We can give you a topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort associated with the injections, which needs to be applied 30 minutes prior to your appointment.
Does it hurt?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. We use the smallest needles available for the injections. Prior to injecting, the provider may choose to numb the area with a cold pack, ice or a topical numbing cream.
What are possible side effects?
Possible side effects are usually mild. These may include some redness, tenderness and bruising in the areas treated. Make-up can be used to cover any temporary discoloration. A droopy eyelid may also occur, but is very rare and can be resolved using a special eye drop.
What is the recovery time after treatment?
The treatment requires no downtime. Most people can return to their normal daily routines right away. We recommend that you do not schedule a Botox® appointment within two weeks of any special events, such as weddings, vacations or photography.
Is there anything I should avoid?
For 14 days prior to your appointment, we recommend that you do not use any blood-thinning medications, including aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen and naproxen. This will help reduce your chances of bruising after treatment. Please do NOT stop any blood-thinning medications that have been prescribed to you by a doctor.
For the first 24 hours after treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, the consumption of alcoholic beverages, and the use of blood-thinning medications (unless recommended by your doctor). You should also avoid manipulating or sleeping on the treated area, as well as extended exposure to the sun, heat or freezing temperatures.
If you are interested in Botox®, please contact us to schedule an appointment. Financing may be available to cover the costs of your procedure. Our offices are conveniently located in Smokey Point, Mill Creek, Anacortes, Monroe, South Everett, and Everett.

I Don’t Regret Botox. But I Wish I Knew These 7 Facts First
I always said I wouldn’t get Botox. The procedure seemed vain and invasive — and seriously? Deadly botulism toxin injected in your face?
Though cosmetic Botox has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration since 2002, it can sound pretty extreme. But anti-Botox opinions are easy to tout when you’re the 22-year-old owner of baby-smooth skin.
Rounding the bend on the second half of my 30s, I’ve gradually changed my tune. I’m currently on my first round of cosmetic Botox.
It’s not that I don’t want to age, or appear the age I am. I’ve actually enjoyed many things about the physical process of getting older. I don’t suffer from debilitating menstrual cramps anymore, I don’t break out with embarrassing Mount Vesuvius–level zits, and I even kind of dig the strands of silver coming in at my temples.
But lately, every time I’d see a picture of myself, I couldn’t help noticing the “elevens” entrenched between my brows. This tiny picket fence indented on my face made me look angry — a lot angrier than I actually feel most of the time. I didn’t love the idea that I might come across as frustrated or irritated when I’m really not.
Knowing that a few shots of Botox could help with this issue, I decided it might be worth a try.
I use makeup every day to enhance my appearance. Is there really such a difference between that and the temporary aesthetic boost of Botox?
And now that I’ve done it, I’ve been pleased overall with my experience. However, there are things I was definitely in the dark about prior to my first appointment.
If you’re contemplating Botox, here are some things to consider:
1. Botox doesn’t actually erase wrinkles
Since Botox is, of course, a treatment for wrinkles and fine lines, I initially figured a few injections would pull these unwanted imperfections right off my face.
But as it turns out, for most patients, Botox is more preventative than restorative. Its active ingredient “freezes” facial muscles to keep you from contracting them in ways that deepen lines and wrinkles.
“Any line that is present at rest, whether it is an etched in frown line, or a deep wrinkle, is not going to disappear with Botox. Botox is not an iron,” says medical, cosmetic, and surgical dermatologist Dr. Estee Williams, MD.
Therefore, the earlier you get Botox, the more preventative its effects — hence the trend of getting Botox as early as your 20s.
2. It’s temporary (more temporary than I thought)
With my limited knowledge of Botox, I assumed its miraculous effects would last indefinitely. But this simply isn’t true.
“The average duration for Botox for glabella , forehead, and lateral crows’ feet is approximately three to four months,” says Dr. Williams. And there are certain factors that may make Botox fade faster.
“Patients who exercise a lot or who are very expressive may feel that the Botox lasts closer to three months,” she says.
3. It does hurt (for a little while, at least)
Not unlike my approach to my first childbirth, I arrived at my Botox appointment with a dim notion that it might be painful, and a needle would probably be involved.
But theoretical pain and real-life, needle-to-the-head pain are two very different things.
While experiences vary, I found the multiple injections to be significantly more intense than the “mosquito bite” pinprick I expected. Despite the ice pack applied to my head, I felt pain for at least half an hour after my injections.
I was also unprepared for the sound the syringe made as it plugged its contents into my skin: like crunching boots on snow or the signature crack of bending a glow stick. (Not a sound you normally want applied to your head.) Thankfully, however, this disturbing auditory aspect lasted just a few seconds.
4. There are certain things you can’t do afterward
I wasn’t planning to run a marathon on the Thursday afternoon after my dermatologist appointment, but I do wish I’d known that certain activities are not recommended immediately after Botox.
My doctor instructed that, for the next six hours, I was not to exercise, lie down, or take Ibuprofen (or any other blood-thinning medications), which could increase bruising at the injection sites.
Dr. Williams confirms these guidelines, and adds, “Immediately after your Botox injections, keep your head level and do not bend your head forward for two hours. No heavy exercise until the next day.”
5. It’s not just for celebrities
Judging from the flat foreheads of most Hollywood A-listers, Botox is a given among celebrities. While weighing the decision whether to get it myself, I tried casually bringing it up in conversation in my own social circle.
In doing so, I was surprised to learn how many of my friends and acquaintances had already had it. Apparently (at least in my age and financial bracket) it’s really not that uncommon.
Though Botox injections are certainly costly, they’re nowhere near the pricing realm of plastic surgery or even injectable fillers like Juvederm or Restylane.
At around $10 to $15 per unit, you can expect to pay between $200 and $300 for the 8 to 20 units of an average forehead treatment. I paid $260 for the injections to my forehead and between my brows. Expensive, yes, but not Oscars-red-carpet expensive.
6. Getting Botox is not a moral failing
Because of my previously held opinions about Botox, a part of me felt that to try it would mean selling out on my principles. Plus, as a deeply religious person, I’ve always subscribed to the belief that vanity is a sin.
But I’ve come to believe that the desire to look attractive (or at least not look angry) is natural and good. If I could prevent myself from frowning on my own power, I would do so! It doesn’t bother me to use a little medical help to get there.
7. Feeling ‘frozen’ can actually feel good
If there’s one thing everyone seems to fear about Botox, it’s looking like an expressionless robot. Isn’t it freaky not to be able to move certain parts of your face?
In my experience, no.
The inability to knit my brows together when my husband makes a snarky comment or my kids grind couscous into the carpet has actually been a kind of relief.
The faces we make carry emotional weight. You’ve probably heard that simply smiling more can make you feel happier — and it turns out that not frowning can have the same effect.
A 2009 study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that when people had Botox that prevented frowning, they had reduced negative mood.
These days, when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I see I look happier than I used to. If I look this way to myself, I imagine I look this way my family and friends, too. That’s enough for me to say I’m happy with Botox.

“You look like you have a question. What’s on your mind?”
After years of being asked this same question in meetings, I realized my face wore a continual look of confusion and/or despair. Why? A wrinkle/ravine between my eyes the size of the Quechee Gorge, that’s why.
I had never considered myself vain, but I was becoming obsessed with the ravine. Was it too much to ask to look like someone who hadn’t just heard that she had a terrible disease?
I imagined myself in meetings where nobody asked me what was wrong. In my dreams, nobody thought I had a cat in hospice or a brother lost at sea.
Finally, I made a decision: I was going to get me some Botox.
I wasn’t willing to spend much money, though. If you’re getting Botox for the first time, where should you get it on a budget? Groupon! Discount sales by people who need business? Perfect. Discount poison.
I got a great deal.
I brought my coupon to the office building, which was unmarked except for the number on the door. The ravine on my forehead deepened in concern as I surveyed the “office.” I entered a room where there was no secretary, just an open space with a Sloppy Man giving injections to another wrinkly woman right in front of me.
Sloppy Man lifted his chin at me. “You got a Groupon?”
“Umm, yes,” I responded, waving my paper in the air.
“Have a seat. I’ll be with you in a second.”
The other wrinkly woman left. I handed the Sloppy Man my coupon. He pulled out three vials of salad dressing/poison/water/who-knows-what and a needle. “You ready?”
“Yes,” I squeaked, gritting my teeth.
He brandished the needle with a flourish and, without any further explanation, began stabbing me about the eyes. Water/Botox/salad dressing leaked out and ran down my face.
I was sure I now had rabies or a lesser evil, maybe some salad dressing-borne illness. As I sat in his chair, I raised my (still-wrinkly) brow heavenward and asked to be forgiven for my vanity. The Sloppy Man blotted my face with a scratchy towel and sent me on my way.
I dashed to my car and promptly called my friend (who blessedly also happens to be a psychologist).
…I backed into a telephone pole as I screeched out of the parking lot.
Remarkably, I did not end up with a needle-born illness, nor did I get whiplash from the crash. God bless us all.
However, I did not get rid of my forehead ravine. Turns out, placebos don’t actually work with wrinkles. My ravine got worse after the accident and the conditions under which it occurred.
Before I had my car fixed, I answered dozens of questions about what had happened. “I, ummmm, backed into a telephone pole.” Dumb, yes. But less shameful than telling the whole story. How could I tell people that I had backed into a telephone pole while talking on the phone because I thought I was going to die because I bought black-market Botox?
But then karma really wanted to get back at me for being so vain in the first place.
I brought my car to be fixed. The mechanic nodded at the dents. “Wow, you really did some damage. How’d you do it?”
One week later, I was still hitching rides from friends and family and sending my kids off to activities with anyone who’d take them. Ten days after the original drop off, I went to get my car. It was shiny and dent-free. I would no longer have to tell people that I had run into a telephone pole.
But the car wouldn’t start.
“Hmmm,” the mechanic said. “Looks like I drained the battery.” Three jumps later, the car started.
The mechanic handed me an invoice for $2,000. The furrow in my brow deepened.
A year later, I would like to say that I’m a wiser person who understands Botox could never bring me true happiness…but I’d be lying. Instead, I catch myself wondering, what if I got it from a real doctor instead?
In the meantime, people are still asking me what’s wrong.
I’m still smiling and saying, “Nothing. Nothing’s wrong.” While considering my next move.
How Much Does Botox Cost? (and Other First-Time Questions)
What Should I Do to Get Ready?
Make sure you meet with the surgeon or dermatologist ahead of time to go over all the details about the procedure.
It’s important to know how many units they are going to inject as well as how much they charge per unit. This way, you’ll know how much to pay and how long the procedure will take.
There is not much preparation needed for a Botox procedure. This isn’t an invasive surgical procedure – it’s more like getting a shot than going under the knife.
What Does Recovery Look Like?
Recovery time after Botox is minimal. Some people may not need any time to recover. Others might experience some bruising or redness in the treatment area, but those effects should go away before long.
You can go about your day as normal after the treatment, but it’s better to wait for at least four hours before lying down. Otherwise, the Botox could potentially migrate to other areas of your face where you don’t want it.
Also, avoid intense workouts, or anything that will have you bending down and straining, for at least a few hours (up to a full day) after treatment. Don’t rub your face hard, or book a facial massage for a few days after your procedure.
As long as you avoid activities that could move the Botox around your face, you can do just about anything.
Is Botox Worth It?
There are more than one million first-time Botox users each year. The ongoing popularity of this treatment is proof that the Botox cost is worth it.

How Does BOTOX® Work?
A life worth of laughing, smiling, and other facial expressions create dynamic wrinkles that accumulate around the eyes, mouth, brow, and forehead. BOTOX,® and similar neurotoxins like Dysport, are clinically proven to dramatically diminish these expression lines that crease the face with signs of aging. BOTOX® is FDA cleared formulas containing Botulinum Toxin A, which safely suspends a muscle’s ability to contract.

How do Dermal Fillers Work
Dermal Fillers use natural, gel-like substances such as hyaluronic acid and poly-L-lactic acid to safely fill in fine lines and wrinkles, plump up regions that are sunken in due to age related volume loss, and fill in depressions, such as acne scars. The volumizing substances with Dermal Fillers can also be used to contour areas of the lower face to restore youthful proportion and symmetry.*²
Fillers are not permanent. The formulas are derived from naturally occurring substances which eventually break down and are safely absorbed by the body.
What is Hyaluronic Acid? Hyaluronic Acid is a biologically occurring molecule found in your skin. It is hailed for its ability to maintain moisture. It is responsible for helping the skin stay hydrated, supple, and plump.
Main Cosmetic Benefits of Dermal Fillers*
Restoring Volume: Many Facial fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane have a formula consisting of Hyaluronic acid. This natural substance effectively plumps up regions that are sunken in due to volume loss. Facial Fillers are especially effective at restoring volume around the cheeks and the midface area. For example, Facial fillers can diminish under eye bags by restoring volume loss in the upper cheek region.
Improving the appearance of Acne Scars: Dermal Fillers improve the appearance of acne scars by filling in the depressions caused by boxcar or rolling acne scars. Filling in the depressions smoothes out the appearance of the acne scar and reduces shadowing often left behind with acne scarring. Dermal Fillers are often used in conjunction with other professional acne scar treatments to provide optimal results.
Filling in fine lines and wrinkles: Dermal fillers offer amazing anti-aging results by filling in the fine lines and wrinkles that crease the face as we age. Dermal fillers are especially effective at smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles that accumulate around the nose and mouth, such as nasolabial folds, commonly known as laugh lines.
Adding Facial Symmetry and Youthful Contour: Dermal fillers are often used as lip injections, dramatically plumping up and volumizing lips with attractive contour. Dermal fillers can also be used to add volume along the jawline to restore symmetry, an attractive benefit for men who want strong, square jaws.
