At SightMD, we believe that your ocular health is of utmost importance. We also know that a youthful appearance and sense of self-confidence is a significant part of your overall wellbeing. For this reason, we offer a variety of cosmetic enhancements, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and laser skin resurfacing. We often perform these treatments in conjunction with other procedures, such as blepharoplasty. We also provide BOTOX® Medical to treat neuromuscular conditions like blepharospasm and facial spasms.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and BOTOX® Medical
BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to reduce the appearance of the deep creases between the eyebrows (the 11’s), crow’s feet, and other fine lines around the eyes. Your doctor will inject a very small dose of BOTOX® Cosmetic into the treatment area. The medication blocks nerve impulses that cause certain muscle contractions that create creases and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic results will typically last three months to a year. The treatment itself involves little or no discomfort, and requires no downtime.
We also offer BOTOX® Medical to treat neuromuscular conditions including blepharospasm (uncontrollable eye twitching or blinking) and hemifacial spasms (uncontrollable twitching on one side of the face). In the same way that BOTOX® Cosmetic can relax muscles to achieve cosmetic enhancement, BOTOX® Medical helps muscles to relax in order to reduce facial spasms.
Dermal Fillers and Laser Skin Resurfacing
Dermal fillers can greatly enhance your appearance and help you to look significantly younger. These treatments boost volume in your face, filling in deep lines and wrinkles, particularly around your lips and nasolabial folds. At SightMD, we offer several types of dermal fillers, including:
- JUVÉDERM®: This hyaluronic acid-based treatment boosts facial volume and helps your tissues to absorb and hold water. JUVÉDERM® is especially helpful in treating the nasolabial folds and fine lines around the mouth.
- Radiesse®: This filler contains calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which adds facial volume. It also helps to stimulate collagen production, giving the skin renewed elasticity. Results can last a year or more. As with JUVÉDERM®, we typically use this filler to treat the area around the mouth and augment deflation of the cheeks.
- Restylane®: Like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® is HA-based, but it is entirely synthetic. Restylane® can add volume to the lips, soften crows feet, and rejuvenate sunken areas of the face that have lost volume because of the natural aging process.
- Belotero Balance®: This recently developed HA-based gel can be used to treat very fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
Laser skin peels are also an option if you want to achieve a rejuvenated appearance. We use a CO2 laser to remove the top layers of damaged skin, spurring collagen production and the development of smoother, more youthful skin. We also offer Obagi® chemical peels, which can achieve similar results using a topical solution. Laser and chemical peels can reduce or eliminate fine lines around the mouth and nose, acne scars, sun damage, liver spots, freckles, birthmarks, and more.
