Botox & Facial Fillers
Botox helps soften lines and creates a refreshed appearance by relaxing muscle movement. As we age, we begin to develop more wrinkles and creases around the eyes, forehead and mouth. This is often the result of a breakdown in collagen and elastin fibers beneath the facial surface. Squinting, frowning, smiling, exposure to sun and smoking contribute to creation of these lines. Botox has become one of the most popular and effective treatments to reduce lines, prevent new ones and give patients a more youthful appearance. It is carefully injected directly into the muscles of the targeted area, such as the forehead, between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and around the eyes (crows feet), in an outpatient procedure that takes just a few minutes. Results are visible within four days and the effects typically last three to four months. Dr. Zwick, our oculoplastic surgeon and award-winning “Top Doc,” carefully evaluates each individual’s appearance and performs all injections.
Facial fillers may be injected into different areas of the face to increase volume, soften lines and provide a more youthful appearance. Injectable fillers, such as Juvéderm®, Restylane® and Perlane®, are clear gels comprised of hyaluronic acid – a natural component found in the skin. As we age, this compound’s distribution and function changes, resulting in deeper facial lines and a decrease in the volume of the face. Facial fillers may be injected into areas such as the lips, marionette lines at the ends of the mouth, nasolabial folds (lines from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth), and smoker’s lines around the mouth. A facial filler appointment usually takes 45 minutes, including consultation, topical numbing cream and injection. Effects can be seen immediately and can last up to a year.
Latisse is a prescription product to help grow longer, thicker, darker eyelashes. This product was developed to treat hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) and is often used for patients whose lashes are thinning or becoming shorter over time.
