Botox Cosmetic in Bend, Oregon
Smooth out the Sands of Time
Every time you squint in the direction of the bright sun or laugh hard enough to crinkle your eyes at a funny joke you're wearing wrinkles into your skin. No one can stop making facial expressions. Besides, who would want to? But not everyone wants plastic surgery either. Now there is a nonsurgical alternative to smoothing out unwanted lines and creases. Botox is an FDA-approved method to smooth and eliminate forehead lines, frown lines, crow's feet, and creases across the neck.
BOTOX© Procedures in Bend, Oregon is a therapeutic neurotoxin that has been used in ophthalmology for over 10 years and in wrinkle therapy for over 6 years. Because Botox is administered in extremely small doses it does not affect the nerve, so there is no numbness as often associated with surgery and the muscles related to other expressions are usually unaffected.
Do not take any medications containing aspirin or ibuprofen during the two weeks preceding therapy. These medications increase risk of bruising or bleeding at injection sites.
- The treatment series requires no anesthesia. Injections are administered to localized areas where wrinkles have formed.
- Periodic touch-up injections are usually required to maintain maximum correction. Correction generally lasts three to five months. After several treatments, the effects can last longer, usually six to eight months.
Botox® requires no downtime. Stop in at your lunch break and return to work immediately after. You may experience slight reddening, bruising, and tenderness around injection sites. This is perfectly normal and should subside within a few days.
Side effects are temporary and localized to the area of injection. Localized pain, tenderness, and/or bruising associated with injection usually pass within the first week. Adjacent muscles may also be weakened because of spreading of the toxin. Patients who are pregnant or suffer from neuromuscular disorders or cardiovascular disease may not be good candidates for Botox injection therapy. Possible respiratory and cardiovascular complications have been reported in patients with these conditions.
