You know the feeling you get when you look in the mirror and see bags under your eyes despite having had a good night’s rest? How about when you look angry and irritated even when it’s actually been quite a good day? If you’d like to freshen up your face but don’t want to undergo the risks of surgery, consider non-surgical eye rejuvenation options as a valid choice for restoring your face to its youthful beauty.
Top Non-Surgical Eye Rejuvenation Options for Your Biggest Eye-Aging Gripes
Many people turn to cosmetic surgery to receive an eye lift. One of the most common surgical procedures is blepharoplasty, where a small incision is made above the eyebrow to remove any excessively saggy skin. Even
though the process is relatively simple, there are still possible complications. These include asymmetrical scars, difficulty closing the eyes to sleep and sagging lower eyelids. Non-surgical eye rejuvenation eliminates the risks surgery normally entails.
Botox for Crow’s Feet and Vertical Brow Lines
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for crow’s feet and vertical brow lines in the United States. Over time, the creases caused by smiling, frowning and squinting can leave a permanent mark. Botox (and similar botulinum toxins, such as Dysport) treatments work by reducing muscle contractions in the treated areas. It has also been used successfully in the treatment of wrinkles between the eyebrows.
Restylane for Under Eye Bags and Dark Circles
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler that is FDA approved for the correction of smile lines and cheek augmentation. The natural fat in the face tends to decrease as we age, leading to an increase in wrinkles and lines. Restylane has been used around the world to create fuller lips and to add volume to cheeks. With long-lasting results, Restylane is great for those who wish to achieve a lower eye lift without surgery to correct under eye bags and dark circles under the eyes.
Restylane is designed to work like the hyaluronic acid that your body manufactures on its own. Hyaluronic acid is found in the skin and is responsible for delivering nutrients that keep the skin soft and hydrated. Restylane is often combined with Botox treatment for improved results. The best part? Patients only experience minimal swelling and bruising that typically resolve after one week.
Botox Brow Lift
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, smooths and lifts the brow area to help patients look more alert and youthful. While a brow lift can be performed as a solo surgical procedure, it can also be done non-surgically as a Botox brow lift. If you are struggling with self-confidence due to your appearance, you may benefit from a Botox brow lift.
