At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Eau Claire, Wisconsin-based surgeon Dr. Ember Ewings offers BOTOX (botulinum toxin) as a muscle-freezing solution to slow down signs of aging. These aging signs often manifest as fine lines between the eyes, forehead, cheeks, and lips. They develop over time due to facial expressions and are noticeable even when neutral. BOTOX injections are an ideal solution for fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging, namely furrow lines.
BOTOX® and DYSPORT®
BOTOX Cosmetic and DYSPORT are injectable cosmetic treatments that we use to treat dynamic facial wrinkling. Different from dermal fillers like hyaluronic acid, it is a toxin extracted from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, and is a safe and effective way to reduce facial wrinkling without surgery or any other skin care product. Fine needle injections target the facial muscle movement that contracts to cause dynamic wrinkles.
These muscles stop contracting when treated, consequently reducing the wrinkles of the skin above the muscle. After that, the effect may last 3-6 months, at which time the muscle from the injection site regains movement and wrinkles will reappear*. We administrate BOTOX and DYSPORT Cosmetic at the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Eau Claire and is a 5-minute procedure.
Hyperhidrosis: (Excessive Sweating) Treatment Options
Description of Condition: thousands of people in America suffer from excessive sweating. Although sweating is a necessary and normal body function that helps to maintain a consistent body temperature, persons with hyperhidrosis sweat excessively 24/7 with no relevance to maintaining their normal body temperature range or in a response to emotional stress or excessive physical activity. The condition appears due to the overactivity of the sweat glands which commonly affect the underarms, hands, feet, and face.
Progression: in persons with this condition, excessive underarm sweating usually starts in their late teens, while palm and sole of foot sweating often begins around ages 13 to 15. This condition can generally stain clothing, reduce self-esteem and with advancing age, place a strain on social and business interactions.
Treatment: some individuals can control sweating or make it more bearable with over the counter antiperspirants but in many individuals, with the more advanced form of this condition, this treatment option may not meet their expectations. Other common treatment options are:
- Prescription strength Antiperspirants containing Aluminum Chloride
- Anticholinergic Medications : Benadryl
- Broad Band Light Lasers: Sciton 1064
- Botox, Dysport
In our experience of approximately 200 cases, we have found that the use of Botox or Dysport to treat axillary hyperhidrosis has evidently caused a significant reduction in their condition and in most instances their results have lasted for 8 to 12 months. Because of these results we will be extending our hyperhidrosis botox treatment plan to the treatment of the hands and feet.

Botox and Dermal Filler injections exist to help smooth out the crow’s feet, frown lines, and wrinkles which occur during aging by limiting facial muscle contractions. In the same way, we use FDA approved Dermal fillers used to raise a depressed scar, enhance lips, and replace soft tissue loss. Results are accomplished by injection of the filler beneath the scar or introducing the appropriate volume to smooth the wrinkle.
