Portland, OR faces look refreshed with Botox treatment for eyebrows

Botox Treatment for Eyebrows in Portland OR area

Has someone recently asked you, “What’s wrong?” when you were cheerful and felt fine? Does your reflection in the mirror look stern, angry, or tired? It could be due to dynamic wrinkles weighing down your forehead. In the hands of an expert injector, Botox treatment for eyebrows smooths the forehead, restoring an alert, invigorated look. Dr. Adam Maddox and his team at Thrive have years of experience administering hundreds of Botox cosmetic treatments for men and women in the Portland, OR area.

The Botox “brow lift”

A traditional forehead lift involves surgical removal of excess sagging skin and repositioning the underlying muscles and tissues. The procedure effectively reduces forehead wrinkles, but it carries the risks of surgery and requires several weeks of recovery time.

A dramatic, surgical level of change cannot be achieved with injectable neuromodulators such as Botox alone. However, a Botox brow lift effectively treats the forehead, without surgery.

Botox injections:

  • Elevate the eyebrows, “opening up” the eyes
  • Soften horizontal furrows on the forehead
  • Reduce depth and visibility of “elevens” – vertical lines between the brows

Frowning and squinting are examples of facial expressions created by muscle contractions. As these expressions are repeated many times each day, they pull skin into creases. Fine lines become etched into skin, and deep dynamic wrinkles form.

Botox is a purified protein that is produced in a medical laboratory to high clinical standards for safety and efficacy. The product is injected into skin, where it changes the dynamics of nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. Precision treatment calms these underlying muscles, avoiding the specific movements that cause forehead wrinkles while allowing other normal facial expressions.

Brow lift treatment focuses on points between the brows that pull them together and at the outer ends of brows that draw forehead skin downward. Treatment restores the natural lift in facial muscles and allows skin to recover from embedded creasing.

There is essentially no downtime after receiving Botox injections. Most patients return to work or other activities. There could be minor redness, itching, or bruising at injection sites, but it typically resolves quickly. As physiological changes take place in the treatment area, you see noticeable improvement within about a week. The duration of your results depends on the severity of your wrinkles, skin type, and facial animation habits, but generally, Botox lasts several months. Your bright-eyed look can be maintained with periodic re-treatment. Over time, as treated muscles learn to relax, they atrophy slightly, which is beneficial. You may need fewer injections and less Botox to keep your forehead smooth. 

What to expect from Botox treatment for eyebrows at Thrive in Portland, Or

An elegant Botox champagne brunch or whimsical girls’ night Botox party might sound fun, but neuromodulators are real medicine. They are legally available only with a physician’s prescription, and should be administered by a doctor or by a qualified injector under the close supervision of a doctor.

The Thrive team takes your welfare and appearance seriously. While we take extra steps to ensure a pleasant experience, Botox is administered in a sterile, clinical setting using fresh, genuine product. An eyebrow session takes only about half an hour. Our skilled and experienced injectors use extremely fine needles, precisely placing the neuromodulator in the right locations for optimal results with minimal discomfort.

An aesthetic appreciation for the differences between male and female faces is as important as technical expertise. Men have thicker skin and different frown triggers on the face. At Thrive, women can count on soft, feminine wrinkle reduction, and men can expect a natural (not frozen) outcome.

Botox: A versatile treatment option

Botox received FDA approval for cosmetic use in 2002 for treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows. Since that time, it has been approved for treatment of crow’s feet at the corners of eyes and moderate to severe forehead lines. In addition, experienced injectors have great success using Botox for lip lines radiating from the mouth, bunny lines on the nose, gummy smiles, downturned corners of the mouth, and other flaws related to muscle contraction.

For many men and women, Botox treatment is all the facial rejuvenation they desire. Others choose to make Botox part of a comprehensive nonsurgical rejuvenation strategy, perhaps combined with injectable dermal fillers, light and laser skin tightening therapies, or advanced resurfacing techniques. It is safe to have Botox injections after cosmetic surgery, and may even prolong the benefits.

There is also a growing trend of “prejuvenation” – beginning treatment with neuromodulators and dermal fillers at ages 20 to 40 to keep dynamic wrinkles from developing.

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


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,


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,


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.


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,


Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.


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.
