Laser Vision Specialists serving Toms River, Brick, Barnegat & Manalapan Township, New Jersey

These days, it seems like dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectables are available everywhere. However, to get good results and avoid any possible complications, it’s crucial to find someone who is qualified to administer these injections. Below are four reasons why you should consider getting cosmetic injections from an ophthalmologist at Susskind & Almallah Eye Associates.

1. Ophthalmologists Are Incredibly Familiar With the Delicate Eye Area

Woman after BOTOX and fillers at Susskind & Almallah Eye Associates To safely perform their jobs and care for the visual needs of their patients, our ophthalmologists are required to know everything there is to know about your eyes and the surrounding area. When administering injectable products anywhere, especially near the eyes, it is crucial to find someone who knows what is going on beneath the surface.

There are areas that should and should not be injected. Our ophthalmologists can easily avoid problematic zones like the main artery beneath your eye. They know the precise location that your injectable treatments should be placed to ensure safe, beautiful results.

2. Eye Doctors Invented BOTOX® Cosmetic!

In the 1980s, ophthalmologists were injecting patients with botulinum toxin — the same ingredient in modern BOTOX® — to address problems such as crossed eyes and uncontrollable eye spasms. In fact, BOTOX® works by blocking signals that travel from your nerves to your muscles.

It was through these ophthalmologist-administered injections that people began to realize that botulinum toxin could fade lines and wrinkles, too! When the muscle in the treatment area stops contracting, the signs of aging fade from the surface of your skin.

3. Ophthalmologists Understand Facial Aesthetics and Cosmetic Rejuvenation

You may be wondering, “How much do eye doctors know about cosmetic treatments?” Well, the answer might surprise you.

Our ophthalmologists are incredibly familiar with facial aesthetics and cosmetic rejuvenation. They know how to select the right injectable treatment to achieve your unique goals. They even perform cosmetic blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, to restore a patient’s youthful appearance. 

We offer the following injectable products at our practice:

  • BOTOX®
  • Sculptra® Aesthetic
  • Restylane® Silk

4. Ophthalmologists Are Highly-Skilled and Educated Medical Professionals

You trust our ophthalmologists with your eye care needs because they are skilled and educated. They have been through years of schooling and specialized training. They have completed internships and residencies.

During that time, our ophthalmologists learned valuable medical skills. Those same skills allow them to offer cosmetic injectables to patients safely.

For example, they know how to thoroughly evaluate a patient’s candidacy before providing a service. And they understand the importance of explaining the potential benefits and risks before a treatment. When you come in for cosmetic injections, you can trust our ophthalmologists to provide a safe and professional experience.
