Aesthetic Treatments for Facial Rejuvenation

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 Schein Ernst Mishra Eye we not only provide advanced eye care to help enhance, protect and preserve your vision; we also offer procedures and treatments for facial rejuvenation:

  • Eyelid Surgery
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic

By taking special care to protect the delicate tissues around your eyes, our experienced doctors can provide safe and effective rejuvenation.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a very popular and effective technique used to improve the appearance and function of your eyelids. Just like other areas of your body, your eyelid skin can lose elasticity as you grow older. This can cause sagging of the upper eyelids and bags under the eyes. Not only can this make you look older and tired, drooping eyelids can also interfere with your vision.

How Eyelid Surgery Works

At Schein Ernst Mishra Eye we perform eyelid surgery in Harrisburg as an outpatient procedure.

  • Local anesthetic is administered
  • Incisions are made in the natural creases of the upper eyelids and/or the inside lower eyelid
  • Excess fat, skin and muscle is removed
  • The incisions are closed with small stitches that dissolve naturally

Because the incisions are made in the natural creases, scarring is usually minimal. To achieve the most natural-looking results, it is important to have eyelid surgery performed by a board certified eyelid surgery doctor that has extensive training and experience with this delicate procedure. Our eyelid surgery doctors have a strong track record of successful procedures and can share their experience and results with you. 

Eyelid Surgery Recovery

It is common for the eye areas to have mild bruising and swelling for a week or two after surgery. Your eyes might also be sensitive to light and be prone to tearing. These are typically temporary side effects that can be minimized by following your doctor’s instructions for applying lubricating ointments, cold compresses, medications, etc. 

Possible Complications of Eyelid Surgery

Your doctor should explain all of the potential complications that may occur with eyelid surgery, including:

  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Dry eyes
  • Temporary lid lag
  • Blurry vision
  • Pain
  • Vision loss
  • Revision surgery

Eyelid surgery is a great method of facial rejuvenation and vision enhancement – if it is done correctly. If you are unhappy with the appearance or function of your eyes, contact us today to discuss your individual situation and find out if eyelid surgery might help you enhance your life. 

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 Harrisburg 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. At Schein Ernst Mishra Eye our ophthalmologist are licensed to provide BOTOX Cosmetic injections and have extensive training in protecting the delicate tissues surrounding the eyes.

BOTOX Cosmetic Benefits

If you are planning to have a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment before a special event, such as a reunion or wedding, schedule a BOTOX Cosmetic consultation with our doctors well in advance to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment and allow plenty of time for the treatment to take effect.
