Cosmetic Procedures

CosmeticproceduresBOTOX®

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.

Blepharoplasty

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.
