Enjoy Botox cosmetic injections with Portland, OR area physician
If you have dynamic wrinkles on the upper portion of the face, such as forehead folds, glabellar lines, or crow’s feet, the team at Thrive understands how this can contribute to an aging appearance. Portland, OR, men and women considering options for treatment might incorrectly believe that cosmetic plastic surgeries such as facelifts are their only solution for turning back the hands of time. Fortunately, there is a less invasive alternative available with dermatologists called Botox cosmetic injections.
What is Botox?
While many patients have heard of Botox, many are unfamiliar with this injection and how it works. Botox is just one of many cosmetic injections available at most dermatology offices as an anti-aging solution. Botox is formulated with botulinum toxin type A, which is a medication that can inhibit muscle contractions. It has been found that by injecting Botox into the muscles of the face, it can smooth wrinkles and folds for many months. This allows the patient to achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing surgical interventions.
Why choose Botox?
Botox has several advantages which patients visiting Thrive should consider. Dr. Adam Maddox finds the most common benefits include:
- Results that are noticeable within a few days
- Results that last several months before reinjection is needed
- FDA approval for cosmetic and medical use
- Effective treatment of crow’s feet, forehead folds, and glabellar lines
- Non-surgical treatment for aging skin
- Affordable for long-term use
What can I expect from my Botox appointment?
Botox is administered right in our office with our trained providers where it is needed to achieve the best results. Patients can undergo an evaluation with Dr. Adam Maddox to determine if Botox is the right cosmetic injectable for their needs. Then, injections are done within a few minutes. Patients are given aftercare instructions and can typically return right back to their normal day with minimal interruption. Patients might experience redness and itching at the injection sites, but this is often short term and resolves on its own.
Will the results look natural?
Many patients are uneasy about the idea of Botox, as they have a fear that the results will be unnatural looking, or cause them to have a “frozen” or surprised look all the time. This is not the case. When done correctly, the results of Botox cosmetic injections look completely natural and allow patients to still look like themselves—only more youthful! Our providers are experienced in providing just the right amount of Botox into the necessary areas to achieve the results patients desire. We cannot reverse Botox, but we can utilize less until we get the right look.
How much does Botox cost?
The cost of Botox varies from patient to patient as it is priced by the vial. Depending on how many areas a patient is having treated will determine the final cost of the procedure. Botox injections are always much more affordable than more extensive procedures such as plastic surgery, making it a popular choice for patients showing the early signs of aging.
