Does your facial appearance leave you looking tired when you are wide awake? You are not alone!

As we age, the texture, elasticity and contours of our faces change. For some, this leaves us having deeper hollows under our eyes, wrinkles around our mouths, and extra skin on our eyelids. These are all natural symptoms of aging. While some may age more gracefully, some of us, due to heredity or sun exposure will show signs of aging younger.

There are many treatment options available in Great Neck, New York and Long Island at Fifth Avenue EyeCare & Rosenthal Eye Surgery! Eyelid surgery in New York is a common procedure that can reduce the puffiness of your eyes. There are also quick in office procedures such as BOTOX Cosmetic and dermal fillers that can reduce those scowl lines between your eyes and facial wrinkles.
