Have the hustle and bustle of the holidays left you feeling and looking fatigued? The cosmetic eye surgeons at Eyesthetica can help. Our eyelid experts specialize in procedures to rejuvenate the eye area and restore a youthful expression to the face. During a personal consultation, we can examine your areas of concern and recommend the best approach to address your needs. Your plan of treatment may include a non-surgical procedure, a surgical procedure or both.
Surgical Rejuvenation Options
Surgical repair of the eyelids (known as blepharoplasty) is designed for individuals that are bothered by:
- drooping upper eyelids
- puffy, baggy lower eyelids
- wrinkles or excess skin around the eyelids
- all of the above
By removing excess skin, fat and tissue and tightening the skin, the eyelid surgeon enhances the contours of the eyelids. Improving the appearance of the eyelids helps the entire face look more youthful, expressive and attractive.
If the eyelids have maintained a youthful look, but are hooded by droopy eyebrows, brow lift surgery can help. Brow lift elevates the upper portion of the face, including the forehead and brow line, to open up the eyes. Brow lift can also smooth creases across the forehead and lines in between the eyes.
Non-Surgical Rejuvenation Options
Non-surgical treatment options yield noticeable anti-aging results without the downtime of surgery.
The popular cosmetic injectable Botox is targeted to dynamic wrinkles, which form when the muscles around the eyes contract. When injected into specific muscles, the product softens or eliminates the overlying wrinkle. Results last about three months, and treatment should be repeated to maintain the effects.
Another way to rejuvenate the eye and forehead area is through laser skin resurfacing. Pulses of light are directed into the skin to remove the damaged outer layers and stimulate the production of collagen for firmer, smoother skin. This noticeably reduces prominent lines and wrinkles.
In some cases, a set of thicker, lusher eyelashes can boost the attractiveness of the eyes. A topical product called Latisse has shown great success in thickening and lengthening the eyelashes. The FDA-approved treatment is available via prescription from our doctors.
