Ive been noticing that my eyes seemed to have really aged in the last few weeks, does aging take place this rapidly or is it something else?
Although the eyes can show the signs and symptoms of certain systemic diseases, the complaint of looking aged makes systemic illness less likely here. This time of year in the Northeast the summer starts to catch up with us. Our skin can be dry and sun damaged. Our summer diets often contain more salt which can lead to puffy eyes upon waking in the morning.
Injectables such as Botox and Dysport can lessen the crow’s feet and relax the muscles around the eyes. Fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse can be used to camouflage the lower eyelid/cheek junction giving a more youthful appearance. Blepharoplasty is the medical term for eyelift, where the bulging fat around the eyes is removed or repositioned and the excess skin is tightened. Many skin texture concerns can be addressed with lasers and chemical peels.
A lifestyle composed of a healthy diet, good skin regimen, rest and sun avoidance will allow these results to last longer.
Restylane under eyes
Restylane is a patented injectable medication that dermatologists and plastic surgeons use to replenish wrinkles and skin folds. Restylane has been approved by the FDA since 2003. These injections can soften wrinkles in the corners of the eyes, as well as fill the tear trough area – the dark circles where bags under the eyes are produced.
The treatment is very simple; we only apply an anesthetic ointment for a few minutes to make it totally painless.
The right amount of Restylane is used to get visible results without noticing where the filling is, so it infiltrates just above the bone.
Once the treatment is finished, the area is cooled with cold and professional cosmetics that improve the recovery.
Restylane treatment works wonders for dark circles. When filling the area, the skin becomes thicker and the soft tissues and bone are less transparent; a huge improvement to sunken, dark eyes. In addition, by elevating the surface of the skin due to the filler, the surrounding area looks brighter and less tired.
