We use our eyes as a powerful means of communication and expression of emotion every single day. Years of laughing, crying, frowning, and showing other emotions affect the appearance of the eyes and eventually they start to show the signs of aging. Fine lines or “Crow’s Feet” begin to make an appearance around the corners of the eyes as early as the mid to late 20’s and from there, the under eyes may begin to appear darker, puffier or more hollow than in your younger years, making you look tired and older than what you really feel. When eye creams and other beauty regimens are no longer effective at preventing these under-eye issues, fortunately there are two quick and easy treatments to reverse the hands of time and restore youthful, energetic eyes.
A Simple Crow’s Feet Fix
The lines around the corners of the eyes that begin to form in our mid to late 20’s are commonly known as “Crow’s Feet”. They develop from years of laughing, smiling and squinting. Botox, which is a botulism toxin, can be injected into the problem areas around the eyes to eliminate the appearance of these pesky lines.
When we smile, laugh and cry, the muscles around the eyes work to create these expressions, which result in fine lines and creases. The muscle relaxant, which is injected in the problematic areas, works to prevent the muscles from contracting, leaving the eyes with a smooth and youthful appearance while we make facial expressions. Botox treatment is an in-office procedure that takes only several minutes to complete. Full effect will be seen in as little as 3-5 days but two weeks to see the full effect. Results may last up to four to six months.
Dark Circles and Tear Through Deformities
The dark, puffy bags and hollows that eventually form in the under eyes known as “tear troughs” can make us look tired and have a dramatic effect on how tired/aged we look. Both puffy bags and tear trough hollows form as a result of either fat loss or fat movement in the naturally occurring fat pockets under the eyes. Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm contain a naturally occurring substance in our body called Hyaluronic Acid which is injected into the hollows or depressions to smooth and even out areas under eyes. These fillers can also improve the appearance of dark circles that often accompany the bags and hollows. Tear trough filler treatment is also an in-office procedure which can be done in minutes and even on a lunch break. You will leave the office with instantly rejuvenated eyes lasting up to 18 months.
We live in a day and age where we have access to affordable and amazing cosmetic treatments that will restored a more youthful and rested appearance. When considering any facial cosmetic procedure, make sure to always find a qualified, highly trained and experience facial plastic surgeon. If you’re looking to eliminate the fine lines around the eyes or to get rid of unattractive dark bags, a combination of Botox and Juvederm will do the trick to get you looking and feeling youthful once again!
