Southern Eye Center offers a line of cosmetic and corrective procedures and products performed by the Pine Belt’s only fellowship-trained Oculoplastic surgeon.
BOTOX® is a naturally derived protein that relaxes the muscles that wrinkle the skin. It is used to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles located around the eyes and forehead giving you a more youthful appearance. It is also used for treating blepharospasms, a medical condition in which muscles surrounding the eye involuntarily contract and has recently been approved for treatment of chronic migraines. BOTOX® treatments are performed in the office and take only a few minutes with results lasting up to 4 months.
For the deep crevices of the face, Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus is the treatment of choice. Juvéderm™ is an injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration with Lidocaine, a numbing agent. Juvederm™ is used to treat deep wrinkles that run alongside the nose and mouth. It may also be used to enhance the lips and reduce fine lines around the mouth. Results are immediate and typically last about 9 months.
