Open Your Eyes to Cosmetic Care
Eyelid surgery and other forms of cosmetic eye care, whether or not they are medically necessary, can change your outlook, your appearance and, in some instances, improve your vision and make you look years younger. If you have droopy, puffy or sagging eyelids, reddened patches around your eyes, abnormal eyelash growth, or other skin problems, our procedures can restore a normal appearance and drastically reduce the common effects of aging.
Silicon Valley Eye Physicians offers oculoplastics, or cosmetic care, as part of our comprehensive eye care at both of our modern Santa Clara and Sunnyvale, CA, locations, bringing you the best of aesthetic services in addition to medical eye care.
Choosing a Cosmetic or Surgical Procedure
We at Silicon Valley realize that opting for any surgical procedure brings a certain amount of anxiety. So, we like to think that surgical options are just another choice along the continuum of healthy eye care that we provide.
Caring for your eyes involves more than just seeing as well as possible. Our physicians and opticians are dedicated not only to improving your outlook, but to caring for the health of your eyes throughout your lifetime. We perform regular exams, prescribe corrective lenses, improve your sight with LASIK procedures and cataract surgery, treat diseases of the eye, monitor for conditions that can affect your sight, like glaucoma and macular degeneration, and perform cosmetic procedures for those who are interested. We are the first to affirm that the way you look has an effect on the way you feel.
Our thoroughly trained professional specialists will help you decide what is best for your particular needs and desires:
- Ptosis Repair
- Eyelid Lesion Removal
- Abnormal Eyelash Growth
- Blepharospasm Treatment
- Cosmetic Procedures
Eyelid problems may stem from aging, heredity or a multitude of other factors including allergies, medication, fluid retention or problems with disease or contact lenses, our physicians will fully explain the procedures, talk about recovery, and discuss available options. Many of our patients take the opportunity to combine eyelid surgery with other options to restore more youthful appearance.
These can include filler treatments such as Radiesse dermal filler, which offers both immediate and long-lasting improvement for facial wrinkles and folds, hyaluronic acids and gels that can enhance lips and also fill in superficial wrinkles, and anti-aging therapy that transforms cell function from below the surface. The Obagi® system helps restore younger-looking skin by minimizing signs of natural aging, including dark spots, rough patches, redness and loss of skin elasticity.
Two prescription treatments: LATISSE®, which helps to grow thicker, darker, fuller eyelashes, and Dysport®, an injection that minimizes the moderate to severe lines caused by muscle contraction, are popular for both men and women. These lines commonly occur between the eyes, along the brows and on the forehead, and can result in an "angry" look. The effect of the injection is temporary, but the resulting relaxed appearance typically lasts for about four months.
