BOTOX® Cosmetic in Vineland, NJ
The Eye Institute of South Jersey, PC, not only provides exceptional eye care; we help our patients enhance their appearance and improve their self-image. BOTOX Cosmetic injections are a popular treatment option to help reduce the appearance of moderate-to-severe lines between the eyebrows or around your eyes (crow’s feet).
A board certified ophthalmologist, Dr. David R. Pernelli, MD, is specially trained to administer BOTOX Cosmetic in the exact locations and amounts to soften muscle contractions while protecting the delicate tissues surrounding your eyes giving you a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
How BOTOX Cosmetic Works
Repeated muscle contractions in the face (squinting, frowning, etc.) can cause lines to form on your face. Injections of BOTOX Cosmetic works under the skin targeting the muscles that cause crow’s feet and frown lines to develop resulting in a smoother, more relaxed and rejuvenated appearance. Made from purified botulinum toxin medication, BOTOX Cosmetic has been used by millions of people and is considered a safe treatment when performed by a licensed healthcare professional.
What to Expect with BOTOX Cosmetic
Dr. Pernelli performs BOTOX Cosmetic injections in our South Jersey office. Depending on your aesthetic goals, he may need to administer several injections of the medication. Most patients do not describe this process as painful and treatment areas are numbed prior to treatment.
The entire treatment process typically takes less than 30 minutes – just 10 minutes for some patients! You can return to work or your regular activities immediately after the treatment. Results will become noticeable within 24-48 hours and your rejuvenated look should last 3-4 months. As the medication wears off, you may need to return for future treatments to maintain your look.

Kybella® in Vineland, NJ
At the Eye Institute of South Jersey, PC, we want to help you put your very best, most confident face forward. That’s why Dr. David R. Pernelli, MD, offers Kybella, the only FDA-approved treatment used in adults to destroy fat cells under the chin to improve profile appearance.
Having a double chin (submental fullness) is often genetic and can make you unhappy and self-conscious. Stop hiding behind scarves and high neck tops and find out if Kybella is right for you.
How Kybella Works
Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid (deoxycholic acid is naturally found in our bodies and acts to break down dietary fat). Specifically-placed, Kybella injections into the fat under the chin destroys fat cells leaving healthy cells intact. As the cells die, they are no longer able to accumulate fat resulting in a tighter, more contoured chin area.
What to Expect with Kybella
Depending on your aesthetic goals, Kybella may provide the results you desire in several treatments or in just a single treatment. The entire treatment process typically takes less than 30 minutes and is performed by Dr. Pernelli in our South Jersey office.
The best news is that once the fat cells are gone, they will not return. Your new chin profile should remain constant if you live a healthy lifestyle.
During your consultation Dr. Pernelli will assess your appearance and medical history to ensure that this will be a safe treatment for you. You will be informed about any potential side effects of Kybella during your consultation and you should expect temporary bruising and swelling in the neck area after the procedure.

LATISSE® in Vineland, NJ
Long, thick eyelashes can create a brighter and even younger-looking appearance to your face. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with perfect eyelashes and lashes can begin to thin over time due to aging or habitual rubbing of the eyes. Luckily, LATISSE is the only FDA approved prescription treatment for hypotrichosis, an inadequate amount of eyelashes, and is available through the Eye Institute of South Jersey, PC. Not available at the pharmacy or at the makeup counter of retail stores, board certified ophthalmologist, Dr. David R.
