Fillers & Botox Encino
At Eyesthetica of Encino, we offer non-surgical options for rejuvenating the face. Facial fillers and botox injectables minimize wrinkles and improve deflation surrounding the eyes and face. Botox works to block acetylcholine release, a signal for facial muscles to contract. Muscles then relax, smoothening the adjacent wrinkled skin. Doctors in Encino also use Juvederm, Restylane and other fillers to restore youthful volume and smooth wrinkles around the eyes.
Dr. Samimi teaches the finer aspects of botox and filler therapy to USC residents at multiple hands on workshops throughout the year.
Why choose an oculoplastic surgeon for your Botox and Facial Fillers?
Botox was developed by Pediatric Ophthalmologist Allen Scott. It was first used for the treatment of strabismus, or misaligned eyes. It became more useful for the treatment of facial movement disorders such as Blepharospam and Hemifacial Spasm. It was noted in these patients that the treated areas had less wrinkles which led to the use of this medicine for cosmetic purposes. Botox has been used by ophthalmologists and oculoplastic surgeons longer than any other specialty. At Eyesthetica, we have extensive experience in treating both facial disorders and cosmetic uses of Botox and other neurotoxins.
Hyaluronic Acid fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Belotero are the most common substances that we use for filling wrinkles and adding volume to the face. These products also have a history related to ophthalmology. These products are related to and born out of the use of viscoelastic products used in cataract surgery such as Healon. The newer fillers are cross linked Hyaluronic Acid products that last longer in the body and have a thicker consistency to better fill lines and wrinkles. Eye plastic surgeons have extensive experience with these products. At Eyesthetica, we offer these products for lines around the mouth and eyes and for increasing volume in the face and cheeks.
