The Top Six Treatments for Youthful Eyes
Eyes are the windows to the soul. The lines and creases around the eyes show our history. Every smile, laugh, and frown leaves its mark on our face. Yet, the thin skin around the eyes bears the brunt of our past. Thankfully, there are ways to counteract history and smooth away time. Here are our top six nonsurgical eye rejuvenation treatments for youthful eyes.
Botox and Dysport
Crow’s feet and frown lines are no match for Botox and Dysport. Both temporarily relax the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It is highly effective and lasts three to four months. Injectables such as Botox and Dysport can take years off your face by merely addressing lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Dermal fillers, such as Restylane are comprised of hyaluronic acid. Naturally produced by the body and responsible for giving skin its fullness and elasticity, dermal fillers add volume back into the face, smoothing wrinkles and restoring the fullness of youth.
Offered in a variety of strengths to meet the diverse needs and goals of our patients, chemical peels reduce the appearance of crow’s feet by removing old skin and replacing it with smoother, healthier, and less wrinkled skin. Safe for all skin types, chemical peels can even help reduce the appearance of acne scars, sun damage, and pre-cancerous growths.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser treatments can improve the tone and texture of the skin around the eyes. Aerolase uses 650-microsecond laser energy to target water in the dermis to stimulate collagen production, reducing fine lines and tightening skin. eMatrix Sublative and BTL Exilis Ultra are two other wonderful options for using radiofrequency energy to address a variety of skin conditions, including crow’s feet, bags under the eyes, and dark circles. Sublative laser rejuvenation uses radiofrequency and heat to stimulate the production of new collagen while leaving the top layers of the skin intact. Exilis Ultra combines radiofrequency and ultrasound to target and tighten the skin around the eyes with no downtime.
Restore vibrancy and stimulate collagen production with microneedling. This treatment uses a handheld device with microneedles to gently penetrate the skin in a targeted area. The body works to repair the microscopic punctures by increasing blood flow and boosting collagen and elastin production, which improves the structure and texture of the skin.
One of the very best things you can do to improve the quality and appearance of your skin is to add retinol to your skincare regimen. Loved for its collagen-producing and rejuvenating power, retinol stimulates the production of new blood vessels in the skin, which improves skin’s tone and texture.
