The team at Advanced Eyecare of Orange County wants to help you look your best while also protecting your eye health and vision. They offer a variety of treatments, including:
Botox has been approved for cosmetic purposes since 2002. It’s an injectable neurotoxin that temporarily freezes the tiny muscles that pull your skin into folds when you smile or frown. It reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles around your eyes, between your eyebrows, and on your forehead.
Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid to restore volume to your skin and lips. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in your skin and provides the plump and smooth appearance associated with youth.
Latisse is a topical treatment that stimulates new eyelash growth. Latisse can make your natural lashes look longer, fuller, and darker. You apply Latisse at home, but it’s only available with a prescription from a doctor such as Dr. Doan.
Botox and other fillers and treatments offer noninvasive solutions to common concerns about signs of aging, including wrinkles, skin volume loss, and thinning eyelashes. The procedures are quick and convenient, and when delivered by professionals like the team at Advanced Eyecare of Orange County, they provide natural, youthful-looking results.
Botox and filler treatments only take 15-40 minutes, depending on the number of injections you need. Treatments begin with a member of the team at Advanced Eyecare of Orange County studying your face to identify the best places for the injections. They also clean your skin and provide a topical numbing agent if you’re sensitive to pain or nervous about needles.
Botox injections are usually quick, and you should see results after 24-48 hours. Your skin needs time to relax after your facial muscles stop moving.
Your provider needs a little more time for Juvéderm injections. They need to monitor their progress as they go, adding a little filler at a time and massaging it into place to ensure that you end up with a natural look. Juvéderm provides an immediate difference in your appearance.
