Renew, Refresh and Revitalize your Facial Appearance with the Aesthetic Services Available with Dr. Lisa Martén.

As we age, our facial skin changes and make us look older than we would like. Even when we are well rested, we may look tired. Skin elasticity diminishes for many reasons including exposure to the sun, genetics, and just plain aging. Even expensive lotions may not restore the tight skin you are seeking. Quick office procedures such as Dermal Fillers and BOTOX Cosmetic have become very popular as they diminish the signs of aging by filling in wrinkles and reducing the appearance of crows feet, lines between the eyebrows and lines on your forehead. These treatments are done in our spa suite and usually take about 20 minutes, with no down time. These are great options to renew a youthful and refreshed appearance.

Blepharoplasty is a popular and very successful procedure that removes the excess skin and allows eyes to appear more open, and provide a more youthful appearance. We encourage you to schedule a consultation at South Texas Eye Institute to learn more about these services. Financing options are also available for these cosmetic treatments through CareCredit.

Routine and Comprehensive Eye Examinations

To maintain good vision and to keep your eyes healthy, it is important to have routine eye exams. For those with stable vision and without any eye disease, having routine eye exams every two years is important. At this exam your eyes will be dilated so the doctor can see into your retina. Your vision will be checked and you will be screened for eye diseases or disorders. If further testing is required a more comprehensive exam and possible testing will be scheduled.

If you experience any changes in your vision between regularly scheduled visits you should schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Early detection of problems and treatment of problems can be the key to preventing loss of vision.
