Botox

Botox

Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical “neuromodulator” treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Lines and wrinkles appear on the face as a result of muscle movement, sun exposure, and aging. For example, constant frowning can cause lines on the forehead and between brows to become deeper and more defined. But with one 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—within days there’s a noticeable improvement. The injections to the contracting muscles temporarily cause the muscle tissue to relax. The relaxation of those muscles causes wrinkles to miraculously disappear and can last up to 4 months.

Another popular use for Botox in Milwaukee is the prevention of hyperhidrosis – sweating under the arms. When severe underarm sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants haven’t worked, you may be a candidate for Botox in Milwaukee.

More than 6.3 million procedures were performed in 2013 alone—a 3% increase over 2012.  Not just models and movie stars, but people from all types of professions have tried it.  In fact, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) ranked Botox® Cosmetic as the most popular aesthetic procedure in the United States for multiple years in a row (surgical and nonsurgical combined).

Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa is a Botox® Diamond Level Provider

Allergan, the maker of Botox, awards Diamond Level Provider status to a select group of physicians who use their products.  In order to become a Platinum-Plus Provider, a physician must perform a certain number of Botox injections.  Diamond level is the highest levels of recognition given by Allergan.

Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa has been a Botox Platinum Plus or Diamond Level provider for years.  This means that we have accumulated a great deal of experience using this product.  Because so many men and women have chosen us for treatment, we have been able to refine and perfect our injection techniques.
