Keeping your eyes in sparkling shape can often feel like a losing battle. Between sun damage, lack of sleep and the inevitability of ageing, your eyes are susceptible to all sorts of cosmetic issues.
- One common complaint is puffy eye bags. As we age and our skin thins, any built-up of fluid beneath the skin’s surface will be obvious and unattractive.
- On the flip side, ageing also leads to less collagen production in the skin, leaving some people with deep hollows below their eyes. Coupled with thin skin, this is what causes those dark under eye circles.
- Because our eyes are so expressive, it’s difficult to prevent smile lines around the eyes, also known as “crow’s feet”. Deep frown lines between the eyebrow and nose bridge are also quite common.
- And lastly, many of our clients come in to Nitai due to sagging around the eyes.
Thankfully, we offer treatments that target all of these issues:
Let’s start by not only treating your issues, but preventing them in the first place. Anti-wrinkle injections work in two ways. They shallow out existing wrinkles around your eyes, smoothing out both crow’s feet and deep frown lines. They also stop the formation of wrinkles. The purified protein injected into the muscles around your eyes impairs the movement of those muscles, thus keeping you from scrunching up the delicate skin around your eyes. Anti-wrinkle injections are incredibly effective, so it might surprise you that this treatment takes just minutes. There is absolutely no down-time, and within two weeks you will see a dramatic improvement in the wrinkles around your eyes. Schedule a no-obligation consultation with our doctor to learn more about this treatment and decide if it’s right for you.
For people suffering from bluish-purple under-eye circles or from hollowness beneath the eye, dermal fillers are a great option. Dermal fillers are injected in the area below the eye, which plumps the skin to give you a glowing, youthful look. It not only fills in that hollow space to give you a smooth surface extending from your cheek, it also covers up the dark veins showing through thinning skin that result in those dark under-eye circles. This is the kind of treatment that will surely have people thinking you just returned from holiday—there is no downtime, and the effect is subtle and natural. That doesn’t mean it’s minimal, though; you will be amazed at the rejuvenating effect dermal fillers have when used around your eyes!
Platelet Rich Plasma for Tear Troughs
Here’s a treatment option that you might not know much about. Platelet Rich Plasma is used in a way very similar to dermal fillers. This procedure targets the tear trough area, but uses platelet extracted from your own blood sample. When the concentrated plasma is injected back into the tear troughs, it stimulates your body’s production of structural proteins and elastic, fibrous glycoprotein. This procedure literally turns back the clock on your under-eye area. If you are interested in finding out if you are a good candidate for this treatment option, schedule a consultation with our doctor today.
If sagging has you down, a brow lift might be your best option. Used for reshaping and restoring, a brow lift will result in a tighter, smoother, younger looking eye area. It also helps to open up the eyes, giving you that coveted doe-eyed effect. Brow lifts can be achieved in a variety of ways, including using dermal fillers and/or anti-wrinkle injections in a targeted and specific manner. Even if you aren’t fighting the effects of gravity, a brow lift can dramatically impact the look of your whole face, giving you the sexy, arched-brow appearance of today’s hottest starlets.
