Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

Look Younger with BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dermal Fillers

With the variety of aesthetics procedures available today, you have many great options for rejuvenating facial skin that has changed due to sun exposure, aging and lifestyle choices. As collagen and skin elasticity diminishes over time, you may begin to notice:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Wrinkles
  • Tired appearance
  • Sagging eyelid skin

At Pendleton Eye Center we not only provide advanced eye care to help enhance, protect and preserve your vision; we also offer aesthetic procedures for facial rejuvenation.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

If moderate-to-severe lines have begun to form between your eyebrows, on your forehead or around your eyes, our BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in Oceanside, California, may be right for you. Millions of men and women have turned to BOTOX Cosmetic to achieve a smoother and younger-looking appearance.

How BOTOX Cosmetic Works

Repeated muscle contractions in the face are one of the underlying causes of facial lines. During a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, small amounts of purified botulinum toxin medication are injected into targeted muscles of the face. The medication allows the facial muscles to relax by blocking nerve impulses. As a result, facial lines are softened and your appearance is rejuvenated.

The treatment lasts approximately 10 minutes; the injections are often described as a pinching sensation.

It is important to choose an experienced doctor who is trained in BOTOX Cosmetic injections so you achieve a natural-looking appearance. Dr. Jean-Paul Abboud is licensed to provide BOTOX Cosmetic injections and has extensive training in protecting the delicate tissues surrounding the eyes.

Areas Treated with BOTOX Cosmetic

BOTOX Cosmetic Benefits

Possible Side Effects of BOTOX Cosmetic

Some patients experience slight after-effects in the injected area, such as:

  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Infection

It is also possible to have an allergic reaction to BOTOX Cosmetic. Inform our providers about any medical condition you have prior to treatment. Being up front about your health will minimize the risk of complications.

Dermal Fillers

Why do younger people look so young? It’s often because their faces are still full of healthy amounts of fat, collagen and hyaluronic acid. Collagen is a connective tissue that gives strength, elasticity and protection to the skin. Hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant and moisturizer for the skin.

As a natural part of aging, collagen starts breaking down and the amount of hyaluronic acid lessens. As a result of reduced moisture, strength and elasticity, our once plump, smooth skin starts to show signs of wrinkles, lines, sagging and volume loss. Mix this natural occurrence with certain lifestyle choices such as sun exposure or smoking and those signs of aging will be magnified.

The good news is that dermal filler injections may help restore some of the youthful plumpness to your appearance and give your self-confidence a boost. We offer a variety of dermal filler treatments in Oceanside, California, to meet the different needs of our patients.

How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers are injected under the skin in specific areas of the face. To minimize discomfort, a numbing cream or local anesthesia may be administered. Treatments are done right in our office. In most cases there is little to no downtime; most patients can return to work or other activities immediately with few restrictions.

Common Dermal Filler Treatment Areas

  • Lines around the mouth
  • Laugh lines
  • Chins
  • Sagging cheeks/volume loss
  • Lips
  • Lower eyelid grooves
  • Forehead

Dermal Filler Results

The results of dermal filler injections will vary based on your own unique skin, which type of dermal filler is used and how you care for your skin after treatment. Results can last from 6-18 months or longer; injections usually must be repeated to maintain the results.
