BOTOX® & Facial Fillers
Our Aesthetic Services
Drs. Wyse and Pearlman administer BOTOX® Cosmetic and Facial Fillers in the office. Both doctors particularly enjoy this aspect of the practice. They will take the time to talk to you about your areas of concern and how best to provide a more youthful yet very natural appearance. As ophthalmologists, they feel that their knowledge of facial anatomy and extensive surgical experience are major assets in performing these treatments.
The use of BOTOX® for cosmetic purposes was discovered by chance by an ophthalmologist who was treating eyelid spasms. She noticed the softening of lines and wrinkles in the treated areas. BOTOX® is now widely used for facial rejuvenation. Lines in the forehead area, around the eyes, “bunny lines” at the side of the nose, frown lines between the brows, the chin crease, and fine lines along the upper and lower lip border are some of the areas that can be treated in our office. Over time even deeper lines tend to fade. Effects start after just a few days and last 3 to 4 months. Administration of Botox® takes just a few minutes, with minimal discomfort (a slight sting). There is no down-time.
We use a variety of facial fillers including Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Voluma® XC, Juvéderm Volbella® XC, and Juvederm Vollure™ XC.These products consist of hyaluronic acid which is a natural occurring substance in the skin. Hyaluronic acid delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. With age, the facial tissues experience volume loss. Restoring this volume with fillers helps restore a youthful appearance. Because the fillers contain a local anesthetic, and we use additional topical or local anesthetic, there is minimal discomfort with filler injections. There may occasionally be mild, temporary bruising that can be covered with concealer, but otherwise there is no down time. Depending upon the type of filler used, results last 6 months to up to 2 years.
