A treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smooths the deep, persistent frown lines between your brows that develop over time. One ten-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—relaxes the muscles that cause these frown lines between your brows to form and keep them relaxed up to 4 months. Botox® has been widely tested and has been approved by the FDA. We also use Botox® to relax forehead lines and crow’s feet. A brow-lift can also be achieved with injections of Botox® at the outer brow.
The results are natural appearing and apparent within days. Unlike surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. For many, lines are virtually “erased.”
Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat spider veins of the legs. Using a syringe with a tiny needle, Dr. Howington injects a small amount of a solution directly into the spider veins causing injury inside the unwanted vessels. Following the injections, patients wear compression stockings in order to compress the treated veins. The blood becomes trapped in the injected veins. The body then gradually absorbs the trapped blood, and the vein disappears over a 3–4 week period. 2–3 treatment sessions are often required to achieve a 90% or better clearing of the spider veins. The treatments are very safe and effective.
