Painless New Ways to Get Beautiful Skin in Portland

Beautiful Skin with Exilis from doctor in Portland

“Gain without pain” and “lunchtime facelifts” are becoming the new mantra for restoring taut, youthful, beautiful skin quickly and effectively. The American Academy of Plastic Surgery notes that non-surgical procedures are outpacing surgeries for patients seeking firmer features. Between 2011 and 2012, Botox injections spiked 24 percent, to become the number one facial cosmetic procedure, while laser resurfacing treatments jumped 25 percent to move to the number three spot behind rhinoplasty.

At Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center, Dr. Adam Maddox specializes in Botox, dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing and firming, as well as traditional plastic surgery. In addition, Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center offers medical grade skin care products. Dr. Maddox has personally seen the increase in patients looking for non-surgical options to attain beautiful skin, particularly with a younger subset of patients in their 20s and 30s who view these genres of treatments as viable ways to stave off more invasive plastic surgery until significantly later in life.

Perhaps the biggest advantage to non-surgical cosmetic procedures is that they can be performed without requiring patients to take a break from their everyday lives. Most can be scheduled over lunch hours, after work, or on Saturday, and thanks to advances in scientific technology, do not entail days of red, swollen skin and incisions that need healing while limiting your ability to exercise, work, and care for your family.

Coupled with the efficiency is effectiveness. Dermal fillers, Botox injections, microdermabrasion, and laser skin resurfacing have dramatic results that are often visible only after just a few days.

For many patients, their first foray into non-surgical cosmetic procedures begins in their teens or early 20s as they begin their careers and want to put their best face forward. The aftereffects of severe acne or other unsightly facial scars can be minimized with microdermabrasion or chemical peels, or laser resurfacing for deeper blemishes. Many patients are so satisfied with the instant smoothing of their skin they continue regular preventive maintenance touchup treatments.

Moving into their 30s, the first signs of early aging begin to appear along the eyes as crow’s feet and laugh lines around the mouth. Under eye dark circles become more pronounced as our skin’s volume thins. This is the prime time to start Botox injections to soften wrinkles. Restylane or Juvederm dermal fillers are excellent methods of plumping sagging under eye hollows and actually diminishing under eye darkness, and they can be used for plumping the lip and chin areas to give a more sculpted, youthful appearance.

Chemical peels, more intense than microdermabrasion, can continue to ward off facial skin dullness and refresh the skin with a new layer of skin cells.

Most attractive about these non-surgical procedures is their price. Financial options and flexible payment plans are available at Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center to give you convenient minimum monthly payments with no upfront costs or pre-payment penalties.
