Crow’s feet, lines between the eyebrows, and furrowed foreheads can be concerns for both men and women who are troubled about the signs of aging. Thankfully, instead of undergoing invasive plastic surgery procedures, patients in the Portland, Oregon area can visit Thrive to learn about injectable services that can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. One popular option for many patients is Botox Cosmetic®.
Botox Cosmetic® is made of botulinum toxin type A, which is used to reduce muscle contractions. The muscles in which Botox Cosmetic® is administered experience the inability to tighten as they once did, which in turn reduces the lines that form in these specific areas. Botox Cosmetic® is injected into areas such as around the eyes and the forehead to smooth lines and improve the overall texture of the skin.
Botox Cosmetic® works differently from dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvéderm Ultra XC®. Botox Cosmetic® works by addressing the underlying muscle, while dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and are injected to add volume directly to the lines, wrinkles, and folds of the face. However, the two can be used together for amazing results. Botox Cosmetic® can be used on the upper third of the face, while fillers can be used to address fine lines and wrinkles that appear elsewhere, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds. This provides patients with a beautiful, amazing results for a full “liquid face lift.”
Dr. Maddox of Thrive is excited to offer Botox Cosmetic® and dermal fillers to assist patients in rejuvenating their appearance and fighting the signs of aging. Botox Cosmetic® injections are affordable, safe, and can provide a noticeable change in just a few days after the initial injections. Results can last a few months, and patients are encouraged to visit Thrive for continued injections to maintain the results.
