What do your eyes say about you? Are they bright and clear, giving you a refreshed, youthful appearance? In some cases, your eyes may do quite the opposite. Instead of rejuvenating your look, they may make you seem perpetually weary or older than you feel. When time takes its toll on your “windows to your soul,” it may be a chance to consider a cosmetic procedure to reverse the damage and refresh your eyes and your appearance. The Center for Facial and Body Rejuvenation has both surgical and non-surgical methods for reviving tired eyes.
For the most dramatic improvement to tired eyes, consider eyelid surgery. This outpatient procedure can be performed on the upper or lower lids, or both eyelids at the same time. During eyelid surgery, our plastic surgeons remove excess skin and tissue from the lids to create a smoother frame for the eyes. By reversing drooping and puffiness, we can effectively refresh the eyes and rejuvenate the entire appearance.
Local anesthesia can usually be used for eyelid surgery, and you should be back home within a few hours after your procedure. You may have some dryness and discomfort for a few days, but we will give you medication to alleviate those side effects. Most patients resume their daily schedule within one to two weeks, with a brighter, revived appearance. Incisions for this surgery are placed inside the lid or in the natural creases of the skin, so there are no concerns about noticeable scars afterward.
If you don’t need all the correction surgery provides, there are less invasive solutions that turn back the clock without incisions and a lengthy recovery time. Injectable dermal fillers are an excellent way to smooth away fine lines and restore youthful volume around the eyes, reversing signs of aging and invigorating your appearance. These formulations work in the underlying dermal structure to provide the support the skin has lost, producing a naturally rejuvenated look from the inside out.
At the Center for Facial & Body Rejuvenation, we offer Restylane® or Volbella for most of our eye treatments. These smooth formulations work well in the delicate eye area, reducing fine lines and restoring subtle volume without looking overdone. The injections are over in just a few minutes, and you can return to work and other activities immediately following treatment.
Professional Skin Care
Professional skin care products are a must to keep your eyes looking and feeling their best, whether you use them alone or to support one of our office procedures. Medical-grade products are superior to what you can find at your local grocery or drug store. These high-quality formulations contain the best active ingredients on the market today, in concentrations much higher than you will see in those grocery or drug store brands.
If you are looking for products to help you heal after eyelid surgery, we have options for that as well. Any member of our team will be happy to discuss those choices with you to help you find the best care for your needs.
Waking up tired eyes can have a profound impact on your appearance overall. To find out which of these treatment options is right for you, contact the Center for Facial & Body Rejuvenation today at 408-255-3223.
