botox

At Deschutes Dermatology in Bend, Oregon we offer Botox treatments for
patients with noticeable signs of facial aging, like wrinkles and fine
lines, who want to rejuvenate the appearance of their face. Botox offers a
a quick and simple way to reduce the appearance of these
aesthetic issues without the
need for incisions or surgery.

What is Botox?

Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that can be injected into the
facial muscles to improve the look of crow’s feet around the eyes, forehead
lines, frown lines and smile lines around the mouth, smoker’s lines around
the lips, chin wrinkles, and furrows between the eyebrows. Botox can also be
used to slightly lift the brow and enhance the jawline as well as reduce
lines around the neck. Another use for Botox is in the treatment of
excessive underarm sweating, also known as axillary hyperhidrosis. We recommend that you schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our providers for more information if you think you might benefit from this procedure in Bend.
Botox has also been used to help treat those who suffer from chronic
migraines. Botox Cosmetic by Allergan is a trade name for the toxin that
Clostridium botulinum bacteria produce. It is used in controlled and diluted
amounts and has proven to be a safe and powerful treatment for wrinkles.

How safe is Botox?

Botox is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments
approved for cosmetic use in over 75 countries. Botox has a record of
experience that is known and trusted by doctors worldwide. Likewise, the
safety and efficacy of Botox have been evaluated in clinical trials as well
as over 400 peer-reviewed articles in both medical and scientific journals.
Botox has been FDA-approved extensively tested and used safely for treating
facial lines for decades.

How long do results last?

This varies slightly among patients, but you can expect results to last
approximately three to four months. After that, the action of Botox begins
to wear off. Some patients can move the muscles gradually for a month or two
before seeing signs of wrinkles returning. Receiving ongoing treatments to
maintain the reduction of wrinkles is both acceptable and common practice.

What should I expect with my treatment?

You may experience temporary redness and swelling at the injection site
which generally lasts no more than a few hours. You may also experience
bruising at or around the treated area. Bruises happen infrequently, are
generally quite small, and can be easily covered with makeup. You will
notice the difference in the muscle’s ability to move before you see the
actual lines in the skin soften and become less visible. The reduction of
lines should be visible within the first few weeks.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

Although Botox is safe, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure.
Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant shouldn’t receive Botox injections.
People with neurological conditions should refrain from Botox as well. Botox
isn’t the right injectable for every patient and every wrinkle. Different
types of wrinkles require different injectables or fillers. Please schedule
a full consultation with our office in Bend to decide whether Botox is the best
option for you.

How Much Do Botox Treatments Cost?

The cost of each Botox treatment varies depending on the number of areas being
treated and the number of Botox vials needed to properly treat the aesthetic
flaws in the area and provide the patient with their desired results.
The price of the procedure can be determined during the consultation process.
For example, if you are looking for Botox treatment in Bend, Oregon, the
consultation process with a local practitioner can help you determine the
cost of the treatment in that particular area.
