Plastic Surgery & Cosmetic Services
Spokane Eye Clinic offers select cosmetic treatments by Dr. Nicholas Ranson, a Board-certified Ophthalmologist with fellowship training in oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery. He specializes in repairing eye sockets, eyelids and tear ducts. He has also received specialty training in Botox® Cosmetic injections, which temporarily reduce or eliminate certain facial wrinkles.
Botox is often injected close to the eye. Having a trained eye doctor who specializes in treating the sensitive areas around the eyes administer the injection can decrease the risk of side effects. The process is simple and relatively painless. Prescription medication is injected into muscles to smooth facial wrinkles, including frown lines and creases between the eyes and on the forehead. Results from Botox can be seen within a few days, and results typically last up to four months.
In addition to offering Botox, the Spokane Eye Clinic offers Latisse®, a prescription medication that helps eyelashes grow longer, fuller and darker as well as dermal fillers, Restylane®, and Juvéderm®.
