Eyelid Surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic, Juvederm, and Latisse for eyelashes

In addition to comprehensive ophthalmology procedures, Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates offers eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, and other treatments to give a youthful appearance to your eyes. Patients come to us not only to achieve improved vision, but also to improve the appearance to the face.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

The area around the eyes is often the first part of the face to show signs of aging. The lower lids become puffy and then sag and the upper lids become droopy. Besides making the face look older, the drooping of the upper eyelid can make a person look tired or angry. In some cases, the upper lid droops low enough to interfere with the field of vision. Our practice offers blepharoplasty, the general term applied to eyelid surgery used to correct problems of both the upper and lower lid area and to restore a more youthful, refreshed look to the face.

To treat puffiness and sagging of the lower lid, the surgeon will make an incision just under the lashes and remove fat and excess skin, leaving the area firmer and smoother. The treatment for the upper lid is to make an incision in the crease of the lid and remove excess skin, pulling the lid up to a more youthful position. For those with extreme droopiness, blepharoplasty may also lift the eyelid out of the field of vision.

Some patients who have had previous eye surgery are not good candidates for blepharoplasty. The eyelid surgery professionals at practice will be happy to review your history and make a recommendation.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

botox-btn imageFor a quick, easy solution to the fine lines and wrinkles that are the early signs of aging around and above the eyes, Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates offers BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Stress or squinting can cause the muscles of the face to gather and wrinkle facial skin, causing crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and other facial flaws. This becomes more prominent as people age and the skin loosens. In the early stages, many of our patients choose BOTOX® Cosmetic as an alternative to more complicated procedures.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a modified protein substance injected under the skin to block the nerve signals that cause facial muscles to tighten. When the muscles relax their grip on the skin, it smooths out and restores a youthful, relaxed appearance. The effects can last for up to three or four months and the treatment can be repeated as often as desired.

If you’re bothered by the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, but don’t feel you’re ready for plastic surgery, you may be a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Juvederm® XC

For patients who want to correct certain types of facial lines (particularly the “parenthesis” around the mouth) or even want lip augmentation, Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates offers Juvederm® XC. Juvederm® XC is a gel-type filler, which can alleviate facial lines and plump up the lips for up to a year without needing remedial treatment.

Latisse® for Eye Lashes

thumb02 image Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates offer Latisse®, the first FDA approved prescription to treat hypotricosis and make eyelashes grow longer, thicker and darker. It was approved in December of 2008, but is a version of a glaucoma drug called bimatoprost that has been used since 2001. It was noted soon after the first patients used this medication that they developed longer darker eyelashes over time. The true mechanism of the hair growth is still being investigated, but it is believed Latisse® lengthens the hair growth (anagen) phase and causes more hairs to grow.

Latisse® is applied by dabbing it on the upper lash line each night with sterile applicators. The drug spreads to your lower lash line automatically as you blink. The medication should never be applied to the bottom lashes directly and it is recommended that you wash your face, remove any makeup and take out any contact lens prior to application.

When all study participants stop using Latisse®, their eyelashes gradually return to their former state. To see if Latisse® is right for you, feel free to talk to our physicians at Wolstan & Goldberg Eye Associates.
