What Skin Care Services are Offered?
As we age, the delicate areas of our face often start to exhibit the first signs of aging as our skin loses elasticity. This often occurs due to sun damage, lifestyle, and genetics; making excess skin in undesirable areas. In addition to excess skin, fat pockets on the face can become more visible and appear as dark circles or “bags” under the eyes. Fortunately, there are surgical and non-surgical options to rejuvenate the eyelids and upper face.
Eyelid rejuvenation approach has evolved over the years. Preservation of fullness and fat versus skin, muscle, and fatty tissue removal around the eyelids is essential to young-looking eyes. Dr. Kulak’s artist’s touch and extensive training allow her to fabricate individual, customized treatment plans specifically for each patient’s aesthetic goals.
Facial Treatments Offered
- Botox and Fillers. One of the most popular cosmetic treatments to treat lines and facial wrinkles, Botox is commonly used to treat forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Botox is a safe and effective treatment using careful and selective placement. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane can be placed under the eye to improve hollowing or dark circles as well. Tear trough filler has become highly requested; however, it is a more complex procedure that requires a high level of skill.
- Laser skin resurfacing. A non-surgical option that is often the treatment of choice for patients with wrinkled skin, laser skin resurfacing may be the least invasive treatment option for many patients. Sun damage can cause our skin to feel thin like paper or crepe, and as we grow older our skin can naturally become looser. CO2 lasers can resurface the skin and improve unwanted textural irregularities, remove unwanted pigment and spots, all while stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin over the next 6-8 weeks.
- Eyelid lift. When there is a significant degree of droopy eyelid or skin laxity, blepharoplasty or brow lift may be the treatment of choice. Both lower and upper eyelids can be addressed to improve the appearance of bulging fat, bags, and dark circles that often give a tired or aged appearance.
