Cosmetic Botox® doctors in Portland describe neuromodulators
Dr. Adam Maddox in Portland is the primary doctor at Thrive and works with a team of professionals to provide ways to fight the signs of aging. While many patients feel as though plastic surgery is their only option, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Instead, Dr. Adam Maddox explains to patients the benefits of cosmetic treatments with injectables such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators. A popular neuromodulator that is used in our practice is Botox® Cosmetic.
Botox® Cosmetic is used to reduce the contractions of muscles in which it is injected. This treatment is best for reducing wrinkles and folds that are formed due to muscle contractions. These dynamic wrinkles can be reduced dramatically by not allowing these muscles to move, thus resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Botox® Cosmetic is commonly used in areas on the upper third of the face where muscles play a big part in the development of wrinkles and folds. It is best used on forehead folds, the wrinkles between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet (the fine lines that develop around the eyes).
An appointment for Botox® Cosmetic is fast and simple. Patients will speak with Dr. Adam Maddox about placement of the injections, which are administered carefully with a steady, trained hand. Dr. Adam Maddox will educate patients on what to expect before, during, and after their appointment. While Botox® Cosmetic does not have any specific after-care instructions or long-term healing concerns; it may leave patients with redness, tenderness, and swelling at the injection site for a day after the appointment.
Dr. Adam Maddox encourages patients who are interested in learning more about neuromodulators such as Botox® Cosmetic to contact his practice and schedule a consultation appointment. This is the perfect time for patients ask any questions they may have about neuromodulators and dermal fillers, as well as find out if they are an appropriate candidate for treatment. Patients can also ask about using dermal fillers in conjunction with neuromodulators for more dramatic results.
