Eye Institute in Las Vegas Adds Thermage and JUVEDERM

Already offering eyelid surgery and BOTOX, doctors at the Las Vegas locations of Westfield Eye Center perform a number of cosmetic treatments in addition to refractive procedures such as LASIK, as well as medical and surgical services for the eye.

    LAS VEGAS, NV, July 15, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Westfield Eye Center (, a Las Vegas LASIK and eye specialty center, is now adding new services to their menu, which already includes cosmetic procedures (such as BOTOX Cosmetic and eyelid surgery), as well as refractive surgical procedures (such as LASIK). They have added cosmetic services such as JUVEDERM Injectable Gel and Thermage, innovative and non-surgical treatments allowing patients to achieve natural-looking facial rejuvenation with little to no downtime.

"I am excited to add JUVEDERM and Thermage to our menu of cosmetic services at Westfield Eye Center," says Kenneth C. Westfield, M.D. "To add these facial rejuvenation procedures to our practice enhances what sets us apart - that we provide comprehensive eye care, addressing both vision correction and cosmetic concerns. Although we have an excellent reputation for performing laser eye surgery in Las Vegas, more people are recognizing that we can also help them accomplish their aesthetic goals with other treatments and services."

Westfield Eye Center has been offering cosmetic eyelid surgery and BOTOX Cosmetic in Las Vegas for some time now, providing existing vision correction patients and those new to their practice with cosmetic enhancement. However, JUVEDERM Injectable Gel and Thermage provide an even greater range of options.

"JUVEDERM is an injectable gel that provides natural-looking facial rejuvenation by essentially 'filling in' wrinkles," explains Leslie M. Sims, M.D. of Westfield Eye Center. "Treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes, and many patients come to my office at lunchtime and need to get back to work or get on with their day - most of the time, that can be accomplished. The procedure can also be combined with BOTOX to obtain more comprehensive skin rejuvenation."

Thermage is a non-surgical skin tightening system that utilizes innovative technology. It, like JUVEDERM, requires minimal (little to no) downtime and most treatments can be performed in about an hour. It's possible to resume normal activities right after a Thermage treatment, although there might be a slight redness to the skin.

"It's with procedures like these that we've established our practice as offering services for our busy, on-the-go patients for both vision correction and cosmetic enhancement treatments," explains Dr. Sims. "Our patients know they can trust us to improve how they see, so they're thrilled to discover that we can also help them improve how they look."

"Both of the newest additions to our menu of services are innovative, non surgical, and minimally invasive," says Dr. Westfield. "Our on-the-go patients can come to the office, receive their treatments and be on their way. There's a lot of excitement around the idea that patients are now able to receive facial aesthetic procedures and eye care from a group of highly qualified and trained physicians and surgeons."
