Cosmetic Procedures & Treatments Cape Coral
Over time, age and our intense Florida sun can do some damage. If you’ve looked in the mirror lately and you feel as if you don’t look as youthful as you did, a cosmetic procedure may help. Cape Coral residents, are you looking for cosmetic procedures & treatments nearby? Look no further than Elmquist Eye Group and our comprehensive ophthalmologist Dr. Yasaira Rodriguez for non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
Now, you might be wondering, “Why do I need an ophthalmologist for cosmetic treatments?” Certainly, dermatologists and plastic surgeons can provide these treatments, but many ophthalmologists across the United States provide this treatment. Not only is Dr. Rodriguez a cataract and glaucoma eye surgeon, she is also passionate about facial aesthetic treatments.
What is a dermal filler?
Dr. Rodriguez uses dermal fillers to provide cheek, chin and general facial augmentation. These fillers can soften nasolabial folds and crow’s feet around the eyes. Dermal fillers are FDA approved for cosmetic use in adults over age 21, and are known by other names such as wrinkle fillers or soft tissue fillers. The FDA has approved dermal fillers for use in several areas of the face, including cheeks, chin and lips.
Worldwide, JUVÉDERM® is most widely used as a dermal filler. Dr. Rodriguez uses specially formulated JUVÉDERM® products, such as JUVÉDERM® Voluma and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus for specific areas of the face. Her results typically last for one year. The fillers are absorbed by the body over time, and treatment needs to be repeated.
Choosing the right doctor
When seeking cosmetic treatment, it is extremely important to have the right doctor. Here are a few questions you can ask:
- How many years of experience do you have with dermal fillers?
- How often do you treat patients for cosmetic procedures?
- Can I see before and after pictures of your patients so I have a better idea of what the treatment results are?
- How many injections will I need and how long will my results last?
- What dermal filler is best for me and are there any side effects I should be concerned about?
- What part of my medical history is important for the doctor to know?
