To help turn back the hands of time and get on a maintenance program to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, Bensimon Center in Portland, OR is proud to offer BOTOX to local men and women. This nonsurgical procedure provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a big enhancement to dynamic lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. The lines soften and may dissapear as the face relaxes. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the underlying facial muscles to soften your appearance. BOTOX is most commonly placed by our seasoned nurse practitioner who has been extensively trained by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bensimon. BOTOX is typically administered between the brows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead.

"Dr Bensimon is simply the best in Portland. I had my Rhinoplasty almost 1 year ago. I had bad deviation and overall crooked shape to my nose as well as a large "hump". Photo is before and after my surgery at 11 months. The staff is all very kind and professional. The facility is clean and modern."- M.D. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
"I had a closed rhinoplasty with Dr. Bensimon and I could not be happier! He did an amazing job with the surgery, I LOVE the results, and it was literally painless from start to finish. I had a lot of anxiety before the procedure but the nurse helped me feel at ease. Recovery was so easy! I wish I had done this years sooner, I could not recommend Dr. Bensimon and his office enough! :)"- K.H. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2019
"The whole staff there is amazing and I couldn't recommend a better place to go for any type of filler, or services for your body. I've been seeing Andrea for about eight years; she's kind , extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled at what she does. I would never go to anyone else for skin treatments & injections. Dr Bensimon is also wonderful! He's so gentle and kind; I always leave there knowing he has provided me with all the information I need to make the vest decisions for my body & treatments I want . I could not recommend a better place , or a better group of staff to work with than Dr Bensimon & Andrea!"- A.S. / Yelp / Sep 16, 2019
BOTOX is ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines on their face nonsurgically. BOTOX is also used as a preventive treatment, even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you make facial expressions. It is a great, nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended. Furthermore, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may opt for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is more long term. Bensimon Center offers facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgeries as great options.
BOTOX injections are performed as an outpatient procedure directly at Bensimon Center. If it is your first time to visit us in Portland, OR for BOTOX, we commonly perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make a few facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to determine where the injections are best placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you can resume your usual activities You will be asked not to touch or rub your treated areas for four hours after injection. The treated areas of the face may be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for a few days, but you will not experience any long-lasting or serious side effects. In most cases, it often takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your Aesthetic Injector about how often to schedule ongoing appointments at Bensimon Center to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BOTOX cost?
Your cost for a BOTOX treatment will depend on how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, we will create your personal treatment plan so we can estimate your costs. BOTOX can produce impressive results when performed by a skilled injector, but it can also be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it's better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. To save money, ask about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program so you can earn points for BOTOX treatments and other Allergan products, like Juvéderm.
How long will my results last?
The results from BOTOX can last up to four months. Most patients schedule an appointment every season to refresh their results, but you may want to come back sooner. If you are getting BOTOX while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule appointments further apart. After listening to your goals and creating your treatment plan, we will be better able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm and Restylane) are both popular cosmetic treatments that decrease wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX relaxes overused facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corner's of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Wrinkle fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease the appearance of wrinkles on the surface. Depending on your goals, we may recommend BOTOX, injectable fillers, or a combination of both for a "liquid facelift."
Is BOTOX safe?
When administered properly, BOTOX rarely causes any complications. With that said, it is still very important to find someone who has experience in handling this medication, like our seasoned injector. Too much of the product can cause an undesirable outcome. A skilled injector will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the facial muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. As one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today, BOTOX is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition to cosmetic uses, BOTOX is also used to treat medical conditions, such as facial spasms, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
