Botox Injections in Portland, Oregon
Want to get rid of those stress wrinkles and crow’s feet? Botox® treatments are just the thing, particularly for moderate to severe forehead lines and wrinkles.
One of the most reliable wrinkle treatments in the market, Botox® is FDA-approved to treat dynamic lines, namely those that move with facial expression. Treatment areas are usually above and between the eyebrows, forehead, and crows feet. Botox® treatments are for patients between the ages of 18 to 65 years.
Botox® will soften, but may not completely remove fixed lines. It is injected into selected muscle groups to minimize facial wrinkles. Full results from Botox can be seen up to ten days after treatment and generally last up to four months, although results vary on an individual basis.
Botox for BO
Did you know that Botox can also be used to fight body odor? It can be injected into sweat glands to reduce sweating and odor. Botox is a common treatment for patients with hyperhidrosis or abnormally excessive sweating. While it is not a permanent treatment, the injections last a few months so it can alleviate BO and sweaty armpits for some time.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers For Folds
Dermal fillers are FDA-approved and used for the cosmetic treatment of fine facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in every living cell.
These fillers contain synthetic gel forms of hyaluronic acid derived from non-animal sources and are highly compatible with the body. When the gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity with normal aging. Hyaluronic acid also brings water to the surface of the skin to keep it looking fresh and supple. The gel is injected into the skin through a fine-gauge needle at the site of unwanted lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can last up to 18-24 months or longer. Additional treatments may be required to achieve desired results, and visible outcomes will vary per patient.
