Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Treatments
To help our Fairfield eye care patients accentuate their natural beauty and combat nagging sign of facial aging, we offer a range of non-surgical treatments, including:
Botox Cosmetic is a facial injectable that is used to soften moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, lip lines and neckband creases for up to six months. Botox is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, a low-dose toxin that disrupts the release of a certain chemical in the face that triggers muscle contractions resulting in facial wrinkles.
Botox is administered via an injection directly into the wrinkle-causing muscles. The procedure is generally completed within 15 to 30 minutes. An ice pack or topical anesthetic is used for maximum patient comfort.
Botox does not require any downtime. Mild swelling at the injection site is common and subsides quickly. Botox results are fully obvious within one week and can last anywhere from three to six months.
Unlike Botox, which disrupts the contraction of wrinkle-causing muscles, facial fillers are administered to restore facial volume and fill in depressions, including wrinkles and lines. Depending on your unique aesthetic desires, a facial filler may be the perfect solution to reduce signs of aging without the need for surgery or downtime.
Our oculofacial surgeon administers a range of advanced facial fillers, including Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Captique and Perlane. After a thorough consultation, he will help you decide which facial filler is best for you.
Facial fillers are administered via injection under a local anesthetic. The treatment time is usually less than 30 minutes, after which patients may return to their daily routine without the need for an extensive recovery. Mild bruising and swelling at the injection site is normal and subsides quickly. The aesthetic results are generally visible right away and, depending on the type of filler you receive, may last anywhere from six to 12 months.
