Botox® Treatment to Reduce the Signs of Aging
Varicose Vein Laser Center & Med Spa now offers Botox® Cosmetic treatments as minimally invasive alternatives to extensive surgical procedures. Botox® treatments do not come with the risk that comes along with performing surgical maneuvers. Dr. Billingy is well aware of such risks as a board-certified gynecological surgeon who has 20 years of experience in women’s healthcare.
Although an accomplished surgeon, Dr. Billingy has done extensive research in non-surgical minimally invasive procedures. We offer such procedures at Varicose Vein Laser Center & Med Spa.
What is Botox®?
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein injected into the skin which relaxes muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox Cosmetic has many purposes beyond cosmetic. Botox is also used to treat certain medical conditions, like excessive sweating. Of course, Botox is used primarily among patients to reduce wrinkles on the face and neck.
Is Botox® painful?
Botox Cosmetic injections are virtually painless. We use a smaller needle than those used for alternative injectable dermal fillers. The procedure can be performed in minutes, and no anesthetic is necessary. Some bruising, temporary redness or headaches can occur in some patients.
Are You a Candidate for Botox®?
Botox® Cosmetic can benefit both men and women. Those who seek to enhance their appearance by reducing wrinkles stand to benefit from this minimally invasive procedure. The right candidates for Botox® are in good physical health. Women who are pregnant or nursing and those who live with neuromuscular disorder should not use Botox®. During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss your options and determine realistic ambitions. Together, we’ll work to achieve the best possible results.
