Portland area anti-aging specialist describes Juvéderm XC vs. Botox

Are you interested in aging gracefully? Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive Portland provides his patients with a wide selection of injectables made specifically for treating areas of fine lines and wrinkles that are causing concern. Folds may appear on the face and result in a more aging face, including the forehead, around the mouth and nose, and surrounding the eyes (crow’s feet). When patients are seeking a solution to these imperfections, they are often introduced to a variety of injectables that can help reduce the depth and overall appearance of these lines.

There is no one injectable that is most appropriate for every patient. Dr. Adam Maddox offers neuromodulators and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for his patients to improve their appearance and turn back the hands of time. They provide different results and patients should discuss with their doctor the one best for their specific needs and desires. Many patients are curious to know the difference between Juvéderm XC vs. Botox. 

Juvéderm XC

Juvéderm XC is a relatively new filler that has been FDA-approved for the use of reducing fine lines and wrinkles such as the smile lines, marionette lines, and vertical lines around the nose and mouth. This filler is injected directly into the lines for immediate results in smoothing away the unwanted imperfections on the face.

Botox

Botox is a neuromodulator and instead of being injected directly into fine lines and wrinkles to add volume and reduce depth, Botox is injected into the muscles of the face to reduce the lines and wrinkles that form from contractions. Botox is best used on areas around the upper third of the face including crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and forehead folds. Results are not instantaneous but appear over time as the skin becomes smoother.

Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive in the area of Portland, Oregon is excited to offer patients a variety of methods of reducing the signs of aging and turning back the hands of time in a non-invasive manner. Many patients who have mild to moderate signs of aging are not appropriate candidates for treatments such as facial plastic surgery and can hold off on these treatments by using injectables to slow the signs of aging and reduce the depth and appearance of troublesome lines and wrinkles on the face.

miraDry® TREATMENT

FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

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

miraDry® TREATMENT FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

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,

Yeah,

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,

Yeah.

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.
Exactly

Right,

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,

Yeah,

Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.

Amazing.

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.
