Signs of aging may be more visible on the face than anywhere else on the body. To combat them, and help you regain your youthful appearance, we offer some of the safest, most effective facial rejuvenation procedures available. SoCal Eye doctors learned and perfected their cosmetic techniques from leading surgeons in the field. Let us turn back the clock and improve the look, feel, texture, and tone of your face! Many of these innovative procedures can be performed right in our office, have little or no downtime, and provide amazing results.
Chemical peels are a deep exfoliation of the skin that improves the tone and texture of your skin. With little to no down time, you can easily restore a luminous appearance with radiant skin. Most patients see results within 7 days of having the peel. Chemical peels are completed in our Los Alamitos and Long Beach offices
Chemical Peels are designed to help minimize:
- fine lines
- sun damage
- acne scars
- skin discoloration

BOTOX® is one of the safest, most popular procedures available. It is FDA approved and has been used for over a decade in wrinkle therapy. A few drops of BOTOX® are injected by a tiny needle into the muscle that creates the wrinkle, blocking nerve impulses from reaching that area. As a result, the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes, and the wrinkles gradually soften and (often) disappear. Normal facial expressions are not affected—you will simply look refreshed and well-rested. Recovery time is minimal; most patients continue their daily routine immediately after the procedure. The best candidates for BOTOX® are men and women who are physically healthy, realistic in their expectations, and age 30 or older.
Fillers, such as RESTYLANE® and PERLANE®, are another antidote to aging. By replenishing lost facial volume, fillers provide a natural beauty lift. These products can:
- Create fuller, younger-looking lips
- Restore volume to your skin to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds
- Diminish the visibility of scars
- Last, on average, anywhere from three to six months
What happens to the fullness of our skin as we age?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that provides fullness and elasticity. As this substance diminishes with time, the skin loses its volume, creating wrinkles and folds. Replenishing hyaluronic acid with Restylane® and Perlane® can revitalize the face and create a youthful look.
You have the power to influence your appearance
Restylane® and Perlane® provide rejuvenating cosmetic beauty treatments for a natural, younger-looking you. Restylane® is the world’s best-selling dermal filler. It is well tolerated, nonsurgical, and long lasting (up to six months).
Restylane® or Perlane®. What’s the difference?
Restylane® and Perlane® are both composed of hyaluronic acid. Perlane® has larger gel particles and is intended to be injected deeper within the skin. The denser formulation of Perlane® allows for added lift and fill, and is designed for more pronounced facial folds and wrinkles.
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Do your eyes look tired, puffy, or droopy—even after a good night’s sleep? Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can remove excess droopy skin from upper lids and bags from lower lids. The surgery will help you will look refreshed and years younger. This procedure is virtually painless, and recovery time is minimal. Plus, for your convenience, we can treat these conditions easily and effectively in our comfortable outpatient surgery center.
Upper Lid Blepharoplasty is the medical name for a procedure that removes excess skin from the eyelids. In addition to improving the facial appearance, upper lid blepharoplasty can also improve eyesight in cases where overhanging eyelids interfere with vision. The procedure is performed by making an incision along the crease of the upper eyelid. Excess fatty tissue and sagging muscle are moved and the drooping skin is trimmed. The incision is hidden in the natural crease line. The eyelids and skin around the lids will be bruised and swollen for a short time following the procedure. Most people are able to return to their normal routine about a week after the surgery.
“Incisionless” Lower Lid Blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes excess fat from the lower eyelid without making any skin incision. With this “no incision” technique, there is no scar on the exposed lower lid, and healing is typically very quick. Anyone with “bags” or puffy lower lids may be a candidate for this procedure.
We also provide Asian Eyelid Surgery. This procedure is designed to create a more pronounced upper eyelid. With minimal recovery time and no visible scars, the result is exceptional.
With great results and continual medical advances, cosmetic procedures are more popular than ever. Fortunately, these safe, non-invasive techniques have also become more affordable—especially with our easy financing plans.
