What are Cosmetic Procedures?
Cosmetic procedures are designed to alter one’s physical appearance to achieve a desired result or look.
Why are Cosmetic Procedures Performed?
Most people undergo cosmetic procedures to improve their self-esteem. By altering their appearance to suit their tastes, people believe they will feel more confident. However, the dramatic changes could also have a negative impact if done for the wrong reasons. Before undergoing your cosmetic procedures, please consider your motivations.

At Eye Excellence, we perform the following cosmetic procedures:
Botox®, also called botulinum toxin type A, is a dermal filler that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes. It is injected into the skin and temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles and folds. Botox® is a non-surgical option that produces results in 5 to 7 days that leave your skin looking smoother and more radiant.
Latisse® is an FDA-approved prescription solution that causes your eyelashes to grow longer and thicker. In as little as four weeks, you can begin to see a change, maximum change can take up to 16 weeks.
Commonly known as an eye lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is designed to reduce bagginess in the lower eyelid and excise extra skin from the upper lid. This procedure can improve sight in those with sagging upper eyelids; however, it is mostly commonly done for cosmetic reasons.
Alone, an eye lift cannot reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, dark circles or other facial imperfections. It is often performed in combination with other procedures, such as forehead lifts, filler injections or laser resurfacing.
