Botox is the gold standard for eliminating dynamic facial wrinkles ever since it earned FDA approval in 2002. Since then, nearly 11 million vials of Botox have been sold in the United States alone. At The Workman Center for Plastic Surgery, we inject Botox into your skin for a visible anti-aging effect that lasts up to four months.
Our Botox treatment delivers a natural, youthful look that earns compliments, yet no one will be the wiser. Clinical studies show up to 90% of test subjects that received Botox injections for wrinkles reported high levels of satisfaction. Study participants also reported improved self-image and said that Botox made them look five years younger on average.
In just one convenient treatment, Botox effectively combats aging skin. It is an ideal solution for 11 lines between the brows (frown lines), crow’s feet around the eyes, and forehead lines. Botox relaxes your facial muscles by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle, therefore smoothing wrinkles.
Just one Botox treatment in Portland and Vancouver can help erase years of worry lines and facial wrinkles while preventing new ones from forming in your face. As we age, the skin on our faces, especially around our eyes, can look loose and thin. This makes you look older and tired and adds to the appearance of wrinkles.
In our Vancouver, Washington practice, Dr. Workman's staff offers treatments of Botox, an injectable that smooths wrinkles on your face, including crow's feet. Utilizing a purified protein known as Botulinum toxin type A, Botox relaxes your underlying facial muscles and prevents your skin from being tugged, pulled, and folded by repeated facial expressions. With every squint, frown, and smile, new lines and wrinkles are formed in your skin. Botox is a quick, non-surgical treatment that helps to prevent this from happening. We plan the injection sites based on your specific needs. If you have any questions about your treatment, we will be happy to answer them during your consultation.
Everyone develops forehead wrinkles at some point. Your forehead and brows are among the most active zones of your face. A lifetime of making facial expressions, such as raising your eyebrows in delight, surprise, or anger, causes lines to become etched in your forehead over time.
Vertical lines that form between your eyebrows are known as frown lines. They are also called “11s” since they resemble the number eleven.
This fine web of wrinkles form on the outermost corners of your eyes with age. Crow’s feet are most noticeable when smiling or squinting your eyes.
The name sounds adorable, however, bunny lines are anything but cute. These small, wrinkled bunches of skin form on the sides of your upper nose and are most prominent when smiling.
Botox relaxes a tense chin and square jawline for a softer, smoother chin contour.
If you are not due for a neck lift yet, Botox can relax your neck’s platysma muscle to smooth neck wrinkles.
Just days after your Botox treatment, you will notice the lines begin to soften. It takes approximately ten to 14 days to see the final Botox results. Medical studies have shown that patients treated with Botox said the treatment made them look approximately five years younger on average. Results from your treatment can last for up to four months. You may return for touch-up treatments to enjoy an ongoing, youthful appearance while fighting off the signs of aging.
Yes, absolutely. Botox pairs beautifully with other facial rejuvenation procedures that are available at our practice. While the treatment works well on its own to erase dynamic wrinkles, not all types of wrinkles are suitable for Botox injections.
For example, you may have smile lines around your mouth that may be better treated with dermal fillers. We can safely combine dermal fillers and Botox to correct various facial aging concerns at once. In the hands of our expert facial injectors, the results look completely natural. Botox also enhances the effects of surgical facial rejuvenation. By treating some parts of the face with surgery and others with cosmetic injectables, you can achieve a youthful and well-rested look from every angle.
Your Botox treatment will take no more than a half-hour, so you can get back to your daily routine without missing a beat. After discussing your facial aging concerns with our experienced Botox provider, a treatment plan is developed just for you. We will determine the optimal number of Botox units to make your wrinkles less obvious. The procedure is quick and relatively painless.
During your initial consultation, we will set up a meeting with one of our nurse injectors, who will answer any questions you may have regarding the procedure. Top Portland plastic surgeon Dr. Workman and his staff want to be aware of your expectations for treatment and if you have any allergies or conditions that would not make you a good candidate for Botox. Remember, your safety is always our number one priority so it is important to disclose your information.
Our injector will listen carefully to what you're looking to achieve with your Botox treatment and provide you with ideal results. We treat each of our patients uniquely to preserve their individual qualities and avoid any negative side effects. Our experienced injectors will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain facial muscles. Botox is a highly customized treatment. The ideal number of Botox units is determined based on your individual facial anatomy. Our goal is to deliver a result that looks smoothed yet entirely natural, not frozen in time.

Botox is a cosmetic drug that is made from botulinum toxin type A. The active ingredient is derived from a bacteria known as Clostridium botulinum. While this toxin is linked to botulism (an infection related to consuming improperly canned or preserved foods), Botox is considered to be low-risk when it is injected into the skin.
Botox is FDA approved for this purpose and has undergone clinical trials to prove its safety and efficacy. In fact, before its first introduction in 1973, small doses of Botox have been used with a safe therapeutic index for a myriad of applications, such as neuromuscular, glandular, and pain syndromes. Only a small amount of Botox is needed for wrinkle correction. With that said, all minimally invasive cosmetic procedures come with a degree of risk. Risks are disclosed prior to undergoing your treatment at The Workman Center for Plastic Surgery.
Botox is considered an affordable procedure considering the incredible benefits it provides. Your Botox cost will be determined with consideration to what you want to accomplish and the extent of treatment required. At The Workman Center for Plastic Surgery, we are committed to working with our patients to help them find financing options for their cosmetic procedure needs.
