The doctors and staff at Southwest Eye Care and Laser are passionate not only about helping you maintain clear vision, but also helping you feel confident about being seen. In addition to our comprehensive range of vision care services, we also offer several non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments at our Bakersfield, CA, practice, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, and laser skin treatments. These popular procedures can greatly reduce visible wrinkles, help to restore youthful volume, and dramatically improve the appearance of blemishes such as discoloration. To learn more about how we can enhance your appearance and help you experience boosted self-confidence, contact our practice today.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are virtually painless, and the results can last as long as six months.
For many patients, the face is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Fortunately, our simple injectable treatments can help you achieve a more youthful look during a single brief appointment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular and effective injectable skin rejuvenation treatments available. During treatment, we will carefully place BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to block specific nerve impulses, helping to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic is especially effective at softening crows feet and the “11s,” the two parallel lines that can develop between the eyebrows over time. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are virtually painless, and the results can last as long as six months.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra replaces lost skin volume with hyaluronic acid, a primary component of the collagen that gives skin its elasticity. Patients often choose JUVÉDERM® to reduce “smile lines,” or the creases that can develop between the outer edges of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. These injections can also be used to boost the volume of the lips, fill the tear troughs below the eyes, or reduce the appearance of scars. The results of a JUVÉDERM® Ultra treatment are immediate and can last six months or longer.
We use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser technology to treat red or brown discolorations on the skin, such as ocular rosacea or hyperpigmentation. This procedure can also be used treat small vessel telangiectasis, which are more commonly known as spider veins. During an IPL treatment, we will use laser-generated thermal energy to help stimulate collagen production, which can simultaneously improve the appearance and texture of the skin. When you visit our practice for a consultation, we can evaluate your skin and take note of your goals to determine if IPL treatment is right for you.
In addition to injectables and IPL treatments, Southwest Eye Care and Laser also proudly offers Teoxane® skin care products. These rejuvenating serums help to rebuild the matrix of collagen in the skin for a more healthy, youthful appearance. Many patients use Teoxane® skin care products as an excellent complement to any of our cosmetic procedures, helping them to achieve natural-looking rejuvenation.
While helping you maintain ocular health is our primary focus, we also understand the importance of confidence and self-esteem. To learn more about our non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments, reach out and schedule a consultation today.
