Refresh Your Eyes for SpringFriday, March 15, 2019
We are entering the time of year in which we witness the physical renewal of the natural world. In the spring, everything is fresh and new and vibrant. If, when you look in the mirror, you see someone who looks tired, sad, or angry, you may feel out of sorts. Tired-looking eyes are a major problem. You can’t hide them and when a good night’s sleep doesn’t do the trick, the appearance of bags, dark circles, and other eyelid-related problems become all-but-impossible to ignore. Here, we suggest a few ways to add some freshness to your face through eyelid rejuvenation.
Identifying the Problem is Just the First Step
It takes about a split-second to identify the problem that may be making your eyes look tired. Without hesitation, you may recognize that it’s hefty undereye bags that are dragging your appearance down. Or, it may be that the tissue just above your lash line has disappeared beneath the sagging skin of the upper eyelid. Maybe your concern is that your face looks angry due to a perpetual frown, or that the outer edges of your eyebrows has become droopy and sad. Making note of the concern is one thing, the next question is “how bad is it?”
The eyes are one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging. Observing the severity of the problem allows you to recognize the true value of the various treatments you may consider. For example, if the tissue on your upper eyelid is hiding the lower part of the lid, a little Botox may not be sufficient for noticeable rejuvenation.
Treatments for Younger-Looking Eyes
The choice to treat aging eyes is very personal. We view our job as the role of informant. When you visit our Denver office, you can expect a thorough evaluation of your skin and discussion regarding your desired outcome. Using the details obtained, we can then provide the information you need on each potential treatment. To restore a youthful appearance to the eyes, patients consider:
- This injectable wrinkle-reducer can soften crow’s feet and gently lift the brow or eliminate frown lines. Results last about 3 months.
- Dermal fillers. Undereye bags can be beautifully disguised for up to 12 months with injections into the uppermost part of the cheek.
- Surgical eyelid rejuvenation offers the longest lasting results because there is no drug to wear off. The effects of blepharoplasty on the upper or lower eyelid are only changed with age.
