Dr. Andrew Campbell is nationally known for providing his patients with customized BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments
BOTOX® is a great choice for anyone who would like dramatic results, but does not want to undergo a surgical procedure. BOTOX® is a safe and popular treatment, but you also want to make sure that it’s being used properly to obtain the best and longest lasting results. It is for this reason Dr. Campbell recommends having a licensed and trained medical professional injector when considering this therapy. Dr. Campbell peforms BOTOX® Cosmetic injections at Quintessa Medical Spa to help reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
What is Botox®
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, or botulinum toxin, is a natural, purified protein approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). BOTOX® is injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles in the face, temporarily relaxing them. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments leave the overlying skin smooth and unwrinkled, while untreated facial muscles are unaffected, allowing normal facial expressions.
How is Botox® Used
BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used at our Quintessa Medical Spa to treat “frown lines” that appear between the eyes and eyebrows, “crow’s feet” surrounding the eyes, forehead wrinkles, and thick bands in the neck. BOTOX® Cosmetic is also successful in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes. It can even be used to treat a “gummy” smile or help lift the corner of a down turned mouth.
Personal Botox® Consultation
During treatment, Dr. Campell and the staff at Quintessa Medical Spa will use extremely small needles and various customized injection techniques to provide an essentially painless experience. There is virtually no recovery time with BOTOX® Cosmetic, and our patients from Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Sheboygan and other parts of Wisconsin notice that their wrinkles begin to fade one to three days after treatment.
Results from Botox®
Results can last from three to six months. However, additional BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are recommended every three to six months to maintain the improved appearance. For maximum skin rejuvenation, Dr. Campbell often recommends BOTOX® Cosmetic be combined with soft tissue fillers, microdermabrasion, microlaser peels and other skin resurfacing treatments that are available at Quintessa Medical Spa.
Combination Therapy: BOTOX® Cosmetic and Facial Fillers
Using BOTOX® Cosmetic and soft-tissue fillers together can have a more dramatic effect than using either treatment alone. At Quintessa Medical Spa, our trained staff can determine if this approach is the best solution to your specific concerns.
Combination therapy can be a great choice for improving the following conditions:
- Very deep lines on the face and neck
- Deep frown lines between the brows
- Forehead creases diminish
- Pronounced crow’s feet next to the eyes
- “Smoker’s lines” disappear
- Flat, sunken cheeks can become fuller, more youthful
- Create smoother and more contoured smile lines
- Remove wrinkles at the corner of the mouth, and vertical lip lines
- Correct acne scars and facial defects
- Fill dark hollows under the eyes
- Enhance lip definition and volume
- Improve lowset brows with a chemical browlift
- Marionette lines below the corner of the lips can be filled
- Improve muscle bands under the chin
- Correct asymmetrical facial features
Because both BOTOX® Cosmetic and facial fillers are administered through small injections, the combination therapy can be done quickly with little discomfort. Depending on the type of filler used, the effects of combination therapy can last up to two years. To find out if combination therapy is right for you, contact Quintessa Medical Spa today.
