Aesthetics by Katzen
Two of the most popular aesthetic eye procedures involve eyelid surgery known as blepharoplasty and the use of dermal fillers such as BOTOX®.
Treating Droopy Eyelids with Blepharoplasty
As we age it is very common for skin on and around your face and eyes to start sagging or dropping. Because the skin muscles in the eyelid areas are much more thin than the other facial skin it is understandable why eyelid skin may start to droop. Of course cigarette smoking and overexposure to the sun's UV radiation will worsen this condition. As your eye muscles weaken the skin around the eyelids will start to form bags and will begin sagging. Many people do not like this because it makes them look old and tired. If you are seeking a Baltimore eyelid surgery specialist in blepharoplasty please feel free to contact us directly. Come learn how Dr. Emily MacQuaid can improve your sagging or droopy eyelids
Botox in Baltimore
You may have heard of Botox®? This is a procedure to eliminate wrinkles and facial grooves. You may be a candidate for Botox® if you have lines or deep grooves along your forehead between your eyebrows, or around the corners of your eyes (crow's feet) that bother you. Feel free to talk with any of our office staff and patients to get an idea of just how effective this treatment can be.
Botox injections are a temporary solution for reducing the appearance of lines and can last anywhere from 3-5 months. You may return to normal activities immediately following your appointment. It usually takes 3-4 days to see the effects of Botox. Botox can also be used to treat overactive sweat glands in the armpits as well as help in the treatment of Migraine headaches. On an occasional patient, Botox is used in the mouth area to decease the appearance of vertical lip lines. See our Baltimore BOTOX® specialist to learn how this injection can reduce your wrinkles and improve your life.
