Botox® in Portland
Learn About the Injectable for Vancouver, Salem, and All of Oregon
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, as well as education on its distinct properties and benefits, are available to Oregon patients seeking a more youthful look that does not require surgery. This popular cosmetic treatment is known for its ability to quickly and effectively rejuvenate a person’s appearance by temporarily eliminating forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. These dynamic wrinkles, which can be treated with BOTOX® at Portland’s Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery, have repetitive muscle movements as their underlying cause and can remain visible even with the skin at rest.
A medication made of a safe, low-dose amount of the purified protein called botulinum toxin, BOTOX® causes temporary paralysis of the contracted muscle. Results usually take five to 14 days to reach full effect, and the effects last an average of three to four months.

Your BOTOX® Procedure
Injections take only a few minutes and are done using an ultrathin needle. There is some mild discomfort from the needle, but we will ice the area for added comfort pre-treatment. A topical anesthetic is rarely necessary.

Recovering from BOTOX®
BOTOX® requires no recovery period, although you may experience some mild bruising or tenderness at the injection sites. Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours. The results will gradually show over the next two weeks and in most cases will last three to four months. Patients who want to maintain their results can return for follow-up treatments.
What Does BOTOX® Cost in Portland?
There are some details about BOTOX®, cost included, that are best discussed at your consultation. This is because every patient is different, each with a starting point and cosmetic goals that require a customized amount of BOTOX®. Cost is determined by the number of injections necessary to achieve the desired correction.
What Treatments Complement BOTOX® at the Waldorf Center?
Since BOTOX® Cosmetic is most frequently applied to two specific areas of the face and works to smooth out wrinkles, patients often ask for complementary treatments to address symptoms of facial volume loss.
Dermal fillers work by providing the benefits of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and collagen, serving to fill in wrinkles and lines around the mouth. One product in particular, Juvéderm Voluma®, restores volume to the cheek area to reduce the severity of hollows and provide a temporary lift to raise sagging tissue.
Also, though the unique properties of BOTOX® make it an effective choice for treating wrinkles, it does not address pigmentation or texture problems. Laser resurfacing can even out discolorations and similar irregularities, as well as smooth out rough patches.
These options can be combined in various ways to provide a customized treatment plan designed to give you a refreshed look that appears natural and balanced.
If you want longer-lasting results, consider a brow lift or eyelid surgery to refresh the upper portion of the face.
