Gravity is not our friend when it comes to aging! Years of its constant pull leads to stretching of tissues throughout our bodies. Our eyelids are not immune to its effects either. Over time we build up excess eyelid tissue that can be unsightly and even reduce our visual field. At Las Vegas Eye institute we offer Blepharoplasty (a procedure to help remove excessive eyelid skin.)
Botox is a protein derived from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. It was interestingly first used clinically by the ophthalmologist Alan Scott in the treatment of strabismus (crossed eyes.) At the Las Vegas Eye Institute we use it cosmetically to substantially reduce wrinkles of the upper facial region. Dr. Swanic has been utilizing this treatment for years on patients and even his own family members with excellent results! Contact us today to schedule an evaluation.
Botox can also be utilized in the treatment of blepharospasm (an unconscious forceful squeezing of the facial eyelid muscles.) Dr. Swanic also has substantial experience in this realm and administers these treatments with Botox as well.
