Vancouver area professional describes Botox
Botox® has been a commonly referred procedure for patients who are interested in rejuvenating their look and addressing wrinkles and folds on the face. However, many patients do not understand exactly what Botox® is or how it works.
Botox® is best for patients who have dynamic wrinkles and folds that are developed due to contractions of specific muscles. This includes muscles on the upper third of the face that, when tightened, will create folds that can have a negative impact on the texture and appearance of the skin. Injecting Botox® in these areas can relax the muscles and therefore provide a more youthful appearance. It is best for glabellar lines, forehead folds, and crow’s feet.
Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive in the Vancouver area provides Botox® injections. These injections are made of a medication known as botulinum toxin type A. This has been used for decades for many medical conditions, including that of chronic migraines, overactive bladder, and hyperhidrosis. It is completely safe, FDA approved, and effective at improving the texture and youthfulness of the skin.
Most patients are appropriate candidates for Botox® injections. We recommend that patients visit our practice in the Portland community to learn about the ways in which Botox® can enhance their appearance. Many are excited to learn that Botox® can be used in conjunction with other cosmetic services such as dermal fillers, laser rejuvenation, and chemical peels. When combining cosmetic treatments, patients enjoy optimum results.
Botox® is done during a fast, simple appointment. The treatment is done in just a few minutes, and patients will be able to see the results within a few days. The side effects that may occur are minor and short-term, and include redness and itching at the injection site. Many patients are not bothered by these and know that they will subside within a day or two.
