Botox Cosmetic Injections at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Portland OR Area

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.

miraDry® TREATMENT

FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Say goodbye to armpit hair and underarm sweating. Mirror Smooth (miraDry??) will save your day.

miraDry® TREATMENT FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

You shave it. You wax it, you laser it. Heck, you might even dye it pink. Talking about armpit hair. Now some people are saying you can microwave it away once and for all. We’re revealing a new treatment right now and our procedure room. Take it away, Doctor Ashton.

Hi guys So, I’m back here with doctor sheila Nazarian, board certified plastic surgeon and our patient Aaron. You’re going to be demonstrating this new microwave procedure to hit axillary hair, but before we get to that, tell, tell me why this hair bothered you, Aaron? Because I mean, you’re blonde, you wouldn’t mind.

I’m a personal trainer. I spend 95% of my day in a tank top in the gym or in a bikini and shaving every day is such a pain. No one likes to do it. I tried laser hair removal. It doesn’t work. If you have blonde hair and darker skin. So, I heard about mirror smooth So, thought I’d give it a try.

And you said it’s your game, okay, So, doctor Nazarian,

Yeah,

Go ahead and lie back Aaron. So, as you start working tell us a little bit about this technology. Who’s a good candidate for it and how? Does it work?

Well, the beauty of this technology is that everyone is a good candidate. Any skin colour, any hair colour? I’ve actually had the procedure performed on myself, didn’t get any hyperpigmentation from it.

So, you numbed Aaron up before we started, right?

Arron’s been numbed already. We’ve placed a temporary tattoo which basically gives us little tick marks. It’s really paint by numbers at that point and we use the microwave technology of mirror smooth to remove not only 70% of her hair with one treatment, but also the sweat and odour glands are also eliminated. So, it’s basically a little suction and some you know heat is applied, but because she’s numb there’s no pain.

You feel anything?
Fine, just a little pull,

Yeah.

And So, how many treatments typically does it take to really get a good effect?

So, 80% of people really only need one treatment. You’re going to get an 82% reduction in the sweat and odour glands and a 70% reduction in the hair growth. Which, if you’ve ever had laser hair, you know you need multiple treatments in order to get anywhere close to 70%.

So, what’s the cost range for something like this?

This that’s a great question. So, the first treatment is around 2000 dollars, but it’s, but if you think about how many laser hair removal treatments to do. I mean, it really is a great benefit and also laser hair doesn’t remove the sweat and odour glands.

Nice, well, 2000 dollars, meaning that you could throw away all your razors for the rest of your life.
Exactly

Right,

Never have to worry about sweating in your armpits again and being musty.

No more deodorant and think of all the money you spend on deodorant over a lifetime.

That’s true.

And it takes how long to do both pitch?

We usually schedule people for an hour at a time?
An hour!

So, can you imagine an hour and you’re done.
Oh my gosh,

Yeah,

Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.

Amazing.

The one done idea is very appealing.

Exactly, yeah.

Thanks for sharing that with us and thanks for showing us your armpits,

Thanks for having me

You’re welcome.
