Patients in the Beaverton area experience the hidden benefits of Botox from the doctors at Thrive in Portland

Botox from Beaverton Doctors

Botox has been the “Go-to” anti-aging solution for years, helping millions of men and women reduce the signs of aging. While your initial excitement about Botox treatment may revolve around cosmetic improvements such as the reduction in crow’s feet or lifted brows, you may be happily surprised to learn that this treatment has additional benefits beyond the basics.


A correlation between frowning and feelings of happiness was discovered in a study conducted at Hannover Medical School in Germany. Six weeks after getting Botox injections, patients with treatment-resistant depression showed a significant improvement of 47.1 percent, whereas placebo patients improved by only 9.2 percent.

Another use of Botox is to reduce the pull of muscles around the mouth that lead to downturned corners.


Many people hold tension in their forehead. Over time, the constant tightness caused by stress can lead to chronic discomfort. In some cases, headache pain may stem from facial tension. Sometimes, tightness is described as more of a nuisance. Because Botox works on relaxing tightened muscles, a nice benefit of treatment is the reduction of facial tension.

Excessive sweating

It is estimated that up to 3 percent of the American population sweat more than normal. Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can be an embarrassing problem. The effectiveness of Botox on over-productive sweat glands was discovered several years ago. This discovery has helped millions feel more comfortable in their own skin. Botox injections can block the stimulation of sweat glands for several months.


Many people have discovered that they can manage their aging process better through early intervention. By minimizing the strength and frequency of muscle contractions before dynamic lines become permanent, Botox injections can be a wonderful option for younger patients who want a more proactive approach.

If you live in the Beaverton or Portland area and want to know more about Botox, the doctors at Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center can assist you. Schedule your visit with us today.
