Patients in Portland ask, “Why should I seek an anti-aging specialist for Botox”?
It is important to feel great about the way you look. It improves your self-confidence and can help you be more successful in both your personal and professional life. As we age, lines and wrinkles begin to appear on the face. For many, this can begin as early as their 30s. Patients in Portland now have an answer to stubborn frown lines and crow’s feet. With Botox treatments from an anti-aging specialist like Dr. Maddox at Thrive, you can have radiant, rejuvenated skin.
Dynamic wrinkles are a product of years of repeated muscle contractions like smiling, laughing, and frowning. When you are younger, these wrinkles are not visible as you relax your face. When you get older, your muscles are no longer able to relax and wrinkles are visible.
Botox is a safe and proven way to eliminate the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. It works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles in your face. This allows the muscles to relax and creates a smooth and soft appearance. Results from Botox are immediately noticeable, but it can take up to two weeks for the full results to appear.
Botox is temporary, with results usually lasting for four months. Maintenance injections can be scheduled to prolong your youthful appearance.
Botox can correct:
- Wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Fine lines
Botox treatments typically require about 20 minutes and involve no downtime, allowing you to get back to your daily activities immediately. Side effects are minor and may include swelling and bruising near the injection site.
When seeking Botox treatments, it is important to find an anti-aging specialist expertly trained and skilled in proper injection techniques. Dr. Maddox and his team have the expertise necessary to deliver natural and beautiful results. Many patients opt for dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane in addition to Botox to complete a full facial makeover. Dr. Maddox can help determine if you are a candidate for both treatments.
