Our doctors and staff pride themselves on offering the most up-to-date cosmetic and reconstructive procedures with the goal of achieving optimal results. Whether or not to undergo an oculoplastics procedure, whether surgical or non-surgical, is a very personal decision. Our team is here to help you make an informed decision when it comes to your appearance and eyelid function.
At OCLI, Drs. Garibaldi and Wong are board certified ophthalmologists who are fellowship trained in oculoplastic surgery. They are uniquely qualified to treat many conditions that affect the appearance of your eyelids and face.
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that is performed to help improve the appearance of the eyelids or address vision concerns. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower lids. Eyelid surgery is often performed to improve the appearance of bags under the eyes, as well as to fix drooping upper eyelids that may be impairing vision or causing cosmetic concern. After recovery from blepharoplasty, most patients feel that their eyes have been rejuvenated.
Brow lifts are often performed to reduce wrinkles, reduce frown lines, and to raise eyebrows which may be sagging because of age. The goal of the procedure may be to improve vision or to improve the appearance of low set brows. When performing a brow lift, many patients opt to have other procedures performed such as blepharoplasty or ptosis repair. There are several different ways to address drooping brows – a consultation with Drs. Garibaldi and Wong can help determine which approach is best for you.
For those that are looking improve the appearance of the eyelid-cheek junction, a mid-face lift may be the answer. Mid-face lifts, or cheek lifts, are best for patients who want to reduce signs of aging like sagging in the cheeks. Traditional face lifts may not properly treat the cheeks or eyelids. Mid-face lifts can have more long-lasting effects than injectables like fillers. At OCLI, Dr. Wong performs mid-face lifts and provide a consultation to determine whether this procedure will help to achieve your cosmetic goals.
Non-surgical cosmetic procedures
At Aesthetics by OCLI, Drs. Garibaldi and Wong are trained in the use of numerous types of fillers that are designed to add volume to restore a more youthful appearance and addressed unwanted wrinkles. A consultation will determine which filler will best address your individual cosmetic needs. At OCLI you will always receive your fillers from a physician – it is the injector, not the injection, that helps to provide the best outcome.
Wrinkles caused by dynamic movement of muscles around the eyes, face and neck can be softened by the use of neurotoxins. Though the most commonly used neurotoxin is Botox, Drs. Garibaldi and Wong will provide a consult and determine which product is best for you.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is more commonly known as a laser peel. Laser skin resurfacing uses extreme precision and control, allowing our surgeons to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, and scars. Minor flaws in the skin like acne scars, sun damaged skin, and fine lines can be subtly addressed with the use of laser skin resurfacing techniques.
Laser hair removal
Tired of shaving, waxing, or plucking away unwanted hair? At Aesthetics by OCLI, our aesthetician Annie Martine offers laser hair removal as an effective way of getting rid of unwanted hair for several months at a time. When hair does grow back after laser hair removal, many patients find that after 2-6 treatments, their hair is finer, and lighter than before. Laser hair removal can be used on most parts of the body, including the back, chest, bikini line, upper lip and chin, neck, and shoulders.
Laser body treatments (spider veins, stretchmarks, surgical scars)
Laser body treatments are a great way to get rid of unsightly problems like spider veins, stretch marks, and surgical scars. The body you have is yours forever, so it’s important that yours looks as great as you feel! Ms. Martinez uses heated lasers to address the parts of your body that need work, and usually takes less than an hour to complete a treatment.
Facial treatments (wrinkles, sun damage, rosacea, scarring)
Adult skin problems are not a forever problem if they are treated properly by a skilled aesthetician like Annie Martinez. The use of a photosensitizer Levulan Kerastick, and application of a blue light, can be helpful for patients that suffer from the symptoms of rosacea, sun damage, and wrinkles. These conditions can often be seen as unsightly, with many patients looking to get rid of them. Though there are no permanent cures, sun damage and rosacea can often be treated and controlled.
When worrying about aging, many people focus on the face, but forget that other parts of the body, such as the hands, show age as well. Hand rejuvenation can be achieved in a variety of different ways. A consultation with Aesthetics by OCLI can determine which modalities are best for you.
