The services Dr. MacDonald offers his vast patient population include:
Whether you want your doctor to perform the procedure because of aesthetic or medical purposes, blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, will improve your vision by eliminating baggy skin on your upper and lower eyelids. Your doctor will recommend eyelid surgery if:
- You have sagging skin covering your upper eyelids’ natural folds
- The area under your eyes has deep grooves
- Your upper and lower eyelids are heavy, making your eyes appear tired
- There is excess skin hanging from your upper eyelids, covering your eyelashes
- You have dark circles around your eyes
During treatment, your doctor will perform the procedure on either of your eyelids or both. Your doctor will decide the amount of skin to remove depending on your preoperative evaluation factors. After the procedure, your doctor will recommend special ointments to cater to the dryness you are likely to feel after the surgery.
Botox injections are famous for their ability to enhance the appearance of facial muscles. By paralyzing the muscles on the treatment area, Botox injections prevent wrinkle formation. Apart from facial wrinkles, your doctor will recommend the injection when you have crow’s feet, frown lines, and lazy eyes.
Though there is minimal discomfort during the procedure, you may wish to discuss with your care provider the various numbing options to help you relax. After numbing the treatment area, your doctor will use a small needle to inject specific amounts of Botox into the muscles beneath your skin. The number of shots your doctor will recommend depends on several factors, including your wrinkles’ depth and the treatment area’s size. After the specialist is through with the procedure, he will advise you not to massage or rub the treatment area for at least 24 hours to prevent the toxin from spreading to other places.
Laser resurfacing therapy prompts your doctor to use thermal energy to improve your skin’s appearance and give you a youthful glow. Your care provider can either perform the procedure with an ablative laser or a non-ablative laser. During an ablative laser treatment, the laser removes your outer skin layer and heats your underlying skin to stimulate new collagen growth.
Non-ablative laser stimulates collagen growth without wounding your epidermis. Laser treatments enhance the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face and improve your skin complexion, giving your face a plump new look. Though laser treatments are very effective, the treatment does not treat sagging skin.
