December is the time of year that families and friends get together before the start of the New Year, so what better reason to make sure you’re prepared for those dreaded holiday pictures? Whether you are located in Long Beach or Los Alamitos, there is no better feeling than starting the Holiday season, and the New Year, looking young again. Our SoCal Eye doctors have perfected our cosmetic center, offering a wide variety of services to fit the need of every patient and making you “picture-ready” for the Holidays.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is the removal of excess skin around the eyes. There are different procedures preformed, depending on the patient’s needs. Upper blepharoplasty removes excess skin around the eye and lower blepharoplasty removes the excess fat under the eye. Another eyelid procedure is Ptosis, which consists of fixing a stretched tendon around the upper eyelid. Here at SoCal Eye, we can get rid of those droopy eyes, giving you ability to look younger just in time for Christmas and the New Year.
Chemical peels are an innovative and an easy way to revitalize dull dead skin cells that naturally become harder to remove as we age. The process of a chemical peel is simple and only takes up to 10 minutes. The peel is introduced to the face and then after a short period, moisturizer is than added to the skin. After approximately 3-7 days, the exfoliated layer of skin will “peel” off, revealing a new layer of skin underneath that is brighter, smoother, and less wrinkled.
BOTOX is a popular procedure on the market today With little to no recovery time, it allows you to walk right out the door right after the procedure. BOTOX liquid acts as a nerve-blocking agent and once inside the skin, will weaken the signals from the muscles attached to the affected areas that cause wrinkles and fine lines. With this quick and painless procedure, your fine lines and wrinkles can dissolve giving you the youthful look for the New Year.
Fillers are another great option for anyone who wants a younger, more vibrant look. Fillers are a gel like substance that is injected into the skin, giving the patients a fuller, more youthful look. At SoCal Eye, we offer the use of both Restylane and Perlane, covering any needs that a patient might have. For example, if a deeper injection for those hard stubborn lines or wrinkles is needed, we use Perlane. Overall, fillers are a great gift to treat yourself with, adding volume back into your skin.
Let SoCal Eye help you look your best this holiday season by giving you the gift of rejuvenation!
