Botox injections - Botox is a protein that is poisonous if ingested; however, injecting Botox in small amounts into the muscles of the forehead and around the eyes helps smooth wrinkles. Botox relaxes kinetic wrinkles, i.e. those caused by muscles responsible for facial expressions (frown, smile, surprise, etc.). Depending on the extent and depth of wrinkles, women normally require 30-50 units in one session, while men, whose muscles are stronger, require 50-80 units to relax wrinkles of forehead, frown lines and "crow's feet". Sessions may be repeated every 3-6 months.
Fillers - Very often kinetic wrinkles become deep and "static" with age. In that case Botox is not enough. Deep furrows, such as nasolabial folds or deep forehead lines, can be smoothed further by injection of filling agents that include Collagen, Restylane, Juvederm Ultra, Voluma, or Belotero, into the dermis of the skin. Sessions may be repeated every 3 months to 1 year, depending on the compound and depth of the wrinkle.
Lasers - There are many skin conditions of the face that an ophthalmologist can treat.
- Intense Pulse Light (IPL) skin rejuvenation treatment
Sun and age spot treatment - IPL technology employs photo-thermal energy delivered by the IPL hand piece to target the melanin pigment responsible for the color of sun and age spots. Heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates skin cells to generate new collagen, fades pigmented spots and makes skin look fresh and young. Treatments usually take 30-60 minutes and require virtually no down time. Two to five treatments, one month apart are usually required to achieve the best results.
Rosacea - IPL hand piece with a different beam frequency can target dilated vessels of the cheeks, nose and forehead that is characteristic for the skin condition Rosacea. Many unwanted vessels pale right away, but again the best results usually are achieved after 2-3 sessions. A once a year maintenance session is strongly recommended.
