There's no reason to live with unsightly crow’s feet or tight, pinched lines between the brows or across the forehead. BOTOX®, a purified form of the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum, can be injected into the skin to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. BOTOX® works by temporarily weakening the underlying facial muscles in the target area to smooth out wrinkles and return a more youthful appearance to the face. During the procedure, minute amounts of BOTOX® are injected into the muscles surrounding facial lines with a fine needle. Typically, these small facial muscles will begin to relax approximately three to five days following treatment, with full results reached in approximately two weeks. The effects from BOTOX® treatments can last as long as six months and may be repeated as desired. If you would like to learn more about BOTOX®, please contact Silicon Valley Eye Physicians today.
Collagen is a fibrous protein that gives skin its elasticity. Collagen injections have been used for decades to replenish the skin's suppleness and help maintain its youthful appearance. Collagen is a safe, nonsurgical treatment that can smooth out facial lines, wrinkles, and scars. The effects of collagen injections can last between six months and two years and can be repeated as necessary. To find out whether you are a good candidate for collagen injections, please contact our practice today.

Cosmetic eyelid procedures are chosen by patients for numerous reasons. Frequently, droopy or puffy eyelids can make people appear tired or years older than they really are. An eyelid procedure can restore the skin around the eyes to its natural, youthful appearance and drastically reduce the signs of aging.
