Eye Lid Lift–Blepharoplasty
You laugh, you cry, you wrinkle! The facial lines and wrinkles that appear at 40 and 50 actually begin decades earlier from natural facial expressions. Dr. Kirk A. Churukian utilizes injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic at his office in the Los Gatos, San Jose area to reduce these lines. Our Los Gatos BOTOX® injections work by relaxing the overactive facial muscles responsible for causing the lines and creases in the upper portion of the face. This natural purified protein has been used millions of times to treat millions of people and is the second most common cosmetic procedure in the U.S. By dramatically improving the appearance of your lines, you’ll look more relaxed and refreshed. Widely tested over two decades, BOTOX® has one of the most proven safety profiles in the pharmaceutical industry. BOTOX® Cosmetic should be replenished quarterly to maintain its cosmetic results.
Since its FDA-approval, the therapeutic use of BOTOX® Cosmetic has brought welcomed relief to patients suffering from certain life-altering conditions. Our Los Gastos BOTOX® injectables were first used as a corrective treatment for strabismus (“crossed eyes”), nystagmus (twitching of the eye), and blepharospasm (involuntary blinking of the eyelid). The indications for BOTOX Cosmetic currently include treating hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). BOTOX® injections can also be used to ameliorate banding of the platysma muscles of the neck, which leads to a condition commonly known as “turkey neck.” Some patients who have undergone BOTOX® therapy for cosmetic indications have also reported improvement in their migraine headache symptoms!
