Why residents of the Portland OR area are getting Botox & dermal fillers

Botox & Dermal Fillers For Residents In Portland OR Area

Botox Cosmetic is the most widely-known and popular brand of neuromodulators. A neuromodulator is a natural protein which is injected just beneath the skin with a very fine needle at precise points on the face.

Repeated contraction of facial muscles contributes to wrinkles and vertical furrows. Botox interrupts signals from the nerves that trigger those contractions. This smoothes the skin quickly, and retrains muscles into a more relaxed state over time. It is FDA-approved for “elevens,” those moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. But in the hands of a skilled, experienced clinician, it can also be used effectively in other facial areas, such as to address crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.

Dermal fillers are biocompatible compounds that add volume, and in some cases, stimulate natural production of collagen. Fillers come in various formulations, from silky smooth gels to thicker consistency with calcium microspheres. They are injected into hollows (such as at the temples) that form from age or illness. They ease “marionettes,” wrinkles and creases from the nose to corners of mouth, and augment lips.

With the oversight of a Board-certified physician, fillers are part of a safe, non-surgical anti-aging program, with the correct product used in each problem area.

So, what’s causing Portland’s fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and deep creases? In a large part, it is our demanding lifestyles. Stress, concentration, and aging eyesight contribute to forehead furrows. Lack of sleep, sun exposure, poor hydration, nutrition, and smoking contribute to overall facial aging. And the simple passing of time leads to loss of natural volume, thinner skin, and sags.

The men and women of Portland OR and surrounding areas are discovering the benefits of Botox and dermal fillers. They’ve realized that a more youthful appearance improves self-confidence and leads to success in a business setting and in social situations. Injectables are minimally invasive and require little or no downtime. The results are temporary (lasting from several months to a few years), so injectables don’t come with the commitment of surgical rejuvenation.

Dr. Adam Maddox and his aesthetic team at Thrive design rejuvenation programs customized to the unique goals and lifestyle of each patient. They put medical expertise, advanced training, and pure artistry behind every procedure.

Call Thrive today to learn more about how these amazing treatments are changing the faces of Portland OR – safely and beautifully.
