Patients who are experiencing signs of aging such as dynamic wrinkles, creases, and facial lines can begin to feel self-conscious. However, BOTOX is a wrinkle relaxer that can be injected into the facial skin to help reduce and smooth out deep lines in areas such as the forehead and nasolabial folds. BOTOX is composed of botulinum toxin type A, which allows the muscles beneath the facial skin to temporarily stop contracting and the wrinkles to be resolved. Our facial plastic surgeons, Dr. Mark A. Petroff and Dr. Brian Scott, recommend BOTOX to all of their patients who are seeking a more youthful, younger-looking expression. Patients interested in receiving BOTOX can schedule a consultation at Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa in Lake Oswego, OR to learn more about their treatment options.
During the initial consultation, your doctor will ask about the patient's concerns and their goals to help them decide if BOTOX is the best treatment. Ideal candidates will have:
- Deep lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions
- Facial asymmetry, particularly around the eyebrows
- Wrinkles that make them look sad, tired, or mad
- Are not ready or do not want a facelift

What to Expect
A BOTOX treatment is usually performed on the same day as your consultation in about 15 – 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure. Our plastic surgeons or an esthetician will clean the treatment sites before the BOTOX is injected into the facial muscles with a thin needle. Most patients feel mild to no discomfort during the procedure, but local anesthesia or numbing cream can be used if the patient prefers. Patients will be able to leave immediately after their BOTOX treatment, but they should avoid lying down, touching the injection sites, and exercise for at least 24 hours. There may be temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the first 1 – 2 days.
While some results will be seen immediately after the treatment, patients will see the full results of BOTOX in 3 – 4 days as the dynamic wrinkles begin to soften and smooth. BOTOX treatments usually last 3 – 6 months, so patients are encouraged to schedule their next appointment after their treatment to prevent the results from fading. The plastic surgeon may also suggest a follow-up appointment several weeks after the initial treatment to check the patient’s progress and add more BOTOX, if needed.
