Why choose Botox®?
If you’re struggling with harsh or stern features in your face, Botox® is a fabulous solution. Botox® softens “dynamic lines” that develop over time by repetitive muscles movement in the face. Patients who choose Botox have seen dramatic and natural results on prominent horizontal forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, softening a wide outer jaw, addressing peau d’orange (orange peel skin) on the chin and softening a gummy smile. Botox® can also help elevate a low brow without surgery and is one of the main components of the popular “Non-Surgical Facelift.”
When Botox® is used to treat the lips, it can soften smoker’s lines and make the lips appear fuller. Botox® can also help turn the corners of the mouth upward correcting the down-turned mouth that is common with aging. Another great application for Botox® is to soften neck bands in the lower face without surgery.
Not only does Botox® cause muscles to relax and lines to fade, but it is one of the most important modern discoveries for the treatment of facial aging. Patients who maintain their Botox® treatments significantly change the way their face ages over time. We are now seeing patients in their late 20’s and early 30’s incorporating Botox® injections as part of their aesthetic maintenance regimen. Some patients may also realize a more complete result by enhancing Botox® treatments with a dermal filler.
Another application for use of Botox® is Hyperhydrosis or excessive sweating. This is an uncomfortable and embarrassing condition for many people that can also be effectively treated. The most common areas treated for excessive sweating include underarms, forehead and palms of hands.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a safe, purified protein that blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles so the injected muscle can no longer contract (tighten). Used in small amounts, Botox® is injected directly into specific areas causing controlled relaxation of the muscles to create a softer, warmer, younger look. It has been used aesthetically and therapeutically in more than 75 countries for over 20 years to treat a variety of medical conditions.
How we are different.
We perform thousands of Botox® treatments each year. Instead of rushing patients through the process which can be uncomfortable, we take our time to offer very comfortable injections with no down-time. A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment site prior to injection. While waiting for the numbing agent to take effect, patients are invited to listen to relaxing music, sip tasty herbal teas, and enjoy views of the Broadway Bridge and Willamette River. These and other methods of distraction make our Botox® treatments the most comfortable injection in Portland.
Our beautiful, dramatic and natural-looking results differentiate us from other injection centers, as well. We guarantee your outcome because we are committed to your aesthetic results and well-being. After treatment, we encourage patients to return for a follow up visit at 14-21 days to assess outcomes. If needed, we can make adjustments to enhance results, at no additional fee when patients return for a follow-up appointment in the proper time frame.
Patients who also use the BensiSkin™ clinical skincare line also report they are easily able to maintain a rejuvenated, youthful appearance by protecting their skin and following a healthy lifestyle.
