Botox for Migraines
The FDA has approved Botox injections as a preventative treatment option for chronic migraine headaches in adults. “Chronic” refers to having 15 or more headaches a month that last at least 4 hours each. Injections are typically needed every 12 weeks to control migraines. Our team has been specially trained to safely and effectively inject Botox for this medical condition.
As we age, the delicate skin on our eyelids becomes prone to sagging. This can make you look older, tired or sad as well as obstruct your field of vision. Eyelid surgery can actually be performed right in our Westlake Eye Specialist offices in just 30 minutes…due to the expertise and advanced skills of our surgeons. In addition to tightening the eyelid skin, this procedure can reduce excess eyelid fat and bags under the eyes. The result is a rejuvenated appearance and better overall vision for some.
Droopy eyelids can also be a genetic trait or present at birth (congenital ptosis).
Eyelid reconstruction may be necessary after a traumatic injury, disease or tumor removal affects the appearance or function of your eyelids. It is absolutely critical that the physician you choose for this type of complicated and delicate surgery is well-trained and experienced in restoring a natural and operational eyelid. Every eyelid reconstruction case is completely unique and will require a detailed exam to determine the extent of the injury and what type of reconstruction is necessary to protect the eye and improve the person’s self-confidence.
