More than any other facial feature, your eyes play an important role in the expression of your emotions, and early signs of aging. When your eyes are bright and alert, you appear energized, well rested, and in control. “Bags” or puffiness under your eyes, drooping upper eyelids, wrinkles, or scowling eyebrows make you look older, angrier or more tired than you feel. Increasing age, sun damage, smoking and heredity can all contribute to fine wrinkles in the skin surrounding the eyes.
Aging around the eyes is gradual and exhibits a cumulative effect. Men and women wish to keep “the windows to their souls” looking refreshed with minimally invasive techniques. The periorbital area ages due to volume loss, loss of skin elasticity, and muscle hyperactivity.
Aging eyes can be restored to their youthful past by combining three proven treatments:
filling volume loss with Restylane® or Juvéderm™
relaxing muscle hyperactivity with Botox®
smoothing out wrinkles with fractionated laser resurfacing.
Dermatologist Victoria A. Cirillo-Hyland, MD explains to her patients that Restylane® or Juvéderm™ fills the deep grooves beneath the eyes. Next, Botox® is used to relax the “crow’s feet” muscles and to create a brow lift. The finishing touches are provided by fractionated Carbon Dioxide or Erbium laser resurfacing. This fractionated laser resurfacing leaves bridges of healthy tissue intact between the treated areas. According to Dr. Cirillo-Hyland, “This technology accelerates the healing process, and results in significantly less downtime. The new layer of skin is smoother and tighter, giving a more youthful appearance to your eyes.”
