Blepharoplasty | Latiesse® | BOTOX® | Juvéderm™ | Microdermabrasion
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure on the eyelids that can significantly improve the appearance of the upper or lower eyelid. Incisions are made either above the upper eyelid, below the lower eyelid or both, to allow for the surgeon to redistribute or remove fat deposits, tighten muscles and remove excess skin layers. These incisions are made in very deliberate areas so as to be concealed by the natural folds of the eyelids, and as a result the incisions are barely noticeable or not noticeable at all. The results of the procedure are immediately noticeable, and recovery after the procedure rarely involves more than some slight swelling and bruising, dry eyes and minor discomfort.

As a cosmetic procedure, there are as few well-known and proven techniques as BOTOX®. BOTOX is essentially a relaxer. When it is injected near a muscle group, it blocks certain electrical signals that cause the muscles to contract. As a result, the muscle relaxes and wrinkles in the skin smoothen out. This is especially effective for muscle groups around the eyes that cause “crow’s feet”, as well as between the eyes and on the forehead. BOTOX is simple, safe, fast and effective, especially when administered by a medical professional. No sedation or anesthetic is required so you can resume your normal daily activities immediately after treatment, and results for BOTOX injections usually last for several months.

Juvéderm™ is a smooth gel that is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. By carefully injecting Juvéderm underneath the skin, your skin can be completely rejuvenated, ultimately adding volume and reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. It offers patients a safe and effective treatment with little to no down-time. Juvéderm is less invasive than other fillers and provides patients with dramatic improvement almost immediately following treatment. Results can last up to six months.

Microdermabrasion is especially for those with less than perfect skin. People with skin that has been damaged by the sun, age spots, acne or has a rough texture may benefit from microdermabrasion. The treatment removes the uppermost layer of skin and removes dead skin cells to reveal a healthier appearance. The exfoliation helps to revitalize the skin and encourage blood flow. We will consult with you on the treatment plan we feel will achieve your desired results. Ask us about our microdermabrasion system if you’re interested in improving the overall appearance of your skin.
Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Patients may experience a slight warming sensation as the microdermabrasion crystals exfoliate the skin. The length and number of treatments solely depends on each individual’s condition.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that offers no downtime following treatment. As the new layer of skins appears it will be more sensitive and requires more protection from the sun. Use moisturizing creams to keep your skin hydrated and to help prevent any possible irritation.
Side effects are very rare and will not occur if properly performed by a qualified dermatologist. Temporary side effects may include, mild redness, swelling, minor discomfort and bruising. More serious side effects can include, scarring, changes in pigmentation and persistent redness.
