Is that a smile, a grimace or a mocking grin? Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, we are getting used to wearing a protective face mask. Suddenly, our eyes have become THE facial feature people first notice. Now is the time to enhance the true beauty of our eyes and give them a big lift…a liquid eye lift!
Why The Skin Around Your Eyes Tends to Age Fast
Your eyes aren’t just two of your most beautiful facial features…they’re incredibly delicate parts of your face! It’s no secret that the skin around our eyes is often one of the first areas on the face to show signs of aging. This is because the skin around our eyes is considerably thinner than the skin on our face, and becomes even thinner as we age.
In addition, the skin in this area contains fewer oil and sweat glands, which makes it even more susceptible to the effects of aging. While fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area are completely normal, they’re also one of the most common aging concerns.
As we age, the skin under our eyes loses volume, causing hollowing and making fat pockets more pronounced.
How Dermal Fillers Can Reduce Dark Circles Around Your Eyes
Do you have dark circles around your eyes?
Everyone has a natural valley that sits atop the rim of bone that encircles the eye. This valley is a natural, normal contour. However, some people have deeper valleys than others. Genetics, sun exposure, dehydration, allergies and lack of sleep are all causes of those pesky dark circles.
By targeting the tear trough or orbital hollowing areas, we can treat volume loss and dark circles under the eyes with Juverderm® dermal fillers such as Voluma® and Volbella®. The end result is restful-looking eyes. Another bonus is there’s minimal downtime, and results last for about one year!
How to Combat Wrinkles Around Your Eyes
Another non-invasive, anti-aging treatment to give your eyes a big lift is Botox®. If constant eyebrow furrowing has resulted in an angry crease or pesky lines and wrinkles are showing up around your delicate eye area, Botox may be your solution.
The terms ‘crow’s feet’ or ‘laugh lines’ refer to the whisky lines and wrinkles around the outer corners of the eyes. Typically caused by repetitive muscle contractions such as squinting and laughing, they can create an aged or tired look.
Also called the ‘11s’, glabellar lines are the vertical lines that form between the eyebrows typically as a result of frowning. These lines can make you appear tired, worried or grumpy. With Botox injections, we can relax strategically selected muscles in the upper face, reducing wrinkles and lines all while still being able to create facial expressions. The effects of Botox typically lasts between 3-6 months for most patients.
How to Protect the Skin Around Your Eyes Every Day
Another ‘liquid eye-lift’ necessity is using an eye cream with medical-grade anti-aging ingredients that help visibly reduce fine lines and eye wrinkles, while accelerating your skin’s own cell renewal process. UV rays are the number one cause of wrinkles, so whether wearing a mask or not, it is imperative to apply a SPF 50+ sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
Ask us about our La Bella Vita Medispa eye cream and sunscreen…our signature skincare line is very popular with our patients since it is medical grade (like the competitors) without the high price tags!
Get Your Eyes to Pop with Longer Eyelashes
Lastly, if you want to grow longer, fuller and darker eyelashes, ask us about Latisse®. This is an easy-to-apply prescription treatment for enhancing eyelashes.
We are also selling handmade, fabric face masks of various fabric designs to go along with YOUR BEAUTIFUL EYES!
