If you live in Lake Oswego, then you can consider yourself lucky. With 600 acres of parks and open spaces to enjoy, and one of the best libraries in the world, it is a gem of a suburb near Portland. With so much to do and enjoy, and the excitement of the city nearby, it’s easy to feel young and invigorated while living here.

However, just because you feel young, that doesn’t mean your skin is cooperating. Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent aging, but you can get help to slow down the signs of it. That’s where Bridgeport Laser & Wellness comes in. We can help to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scarring, and other issues that start showing up as you get older. It can be scary and frustrating to watch yourself get older, but you can find a fountain of youth. Come to our Tualatin medspa to use botox for fixing wrinkles. Botox treatments help to fill in the spots on your face where hollows, lines, and wrinkles are starting to show.

What is Botox? 

Botox is a procedure that involves injecting botulinum under the surface of your skin. Botulinum is a toxin, but it is not dangerous in the small doses that you would get from a Botox treatment. It works by numbing the signals between your brain and the muscles of the skin. Wrinkles are often caused by the movement of facial muscles over time, and the skin getting tight. The relaxation will help to smooth wrinkles and lines, and keep your skin looking more flexible and vibrant. Loosening the muscles will also help to prevent wrinkles from developing in the future. Some of the best benefits of Botox include;

  • Adding volume to thinning lips
  • Smoothing out facial wrinkles
  • Filling in hollowed cheeks
  • Keeping wrinkles from forming in the future

What Side Effects Are There With Botox? 

While Botox is minimally invasive, the potential side effects are not severe. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site. However, many patients do not get these symptoms. Since the injection goes just under the skin, the needle is very small, so there is no wound to care for. This is in contrast with surgery, which may involve a long recovery and healing time. With Botox, if you have irritation or redness, you can apply an ice pack and be back to normal activities immediately.

Who is a Good Candidate for Botox?

Most people are good candidates for Botox as long as they are in good physical health and do not smoke. However, it is a decision that you should not make without consulting with a doctor.
