Botox relaxes the 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.
Our experienced injector will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain facial muscles. Your Botox treatment will take no more than a half-hour, so you can get back to your daily routine without missing a beat.
During your initial consultation, we will set up a meeting with our nurse practitioner injector, 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.
