Out of all your facial features, your eyes are often the most telling when it comes to your age, and how you’ve been feeling. Factors such as illness, stress, and fatigue can make your eyes look tired and weary, while excess sun exposure can make wrinkles and fine lines more pronounced. In some cases, even genetics play a role in under-eye bags and circles.
Choosing the right cosmetic treatment to rejuvenate your eyes can be an overwhelming feat; after all, there are several beauty and skin care products on the market that promise to erase wrinkles and eliminate circles and bags. However, many of these treatments aren’t as effective at making your eyes look youthful as intended.
Fortunately, Monarch Plastic Surgery specializes in cosmetic facial and skin rejuvenation procedures that can help turn back the clock! Schedule your complimentary consultation to learn more, and read on for our recommendations on top cosmetic eye treatments that can help minimize the appearance of bags, circles, and wrinkles.
Bags are commonly associated with the aging process and are often genetic. As you age, the muscles and tissue around your eyes can weaken, causing fat tissue to move and sag into the section below your eyes. Your best option for treating under-eye bags is eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), which is when a cosmetic surgeon removes fat and excess skin from around your eyes to make your eyes look more youthful.
Additionally, skin care treatments such as A.G.E. Eye Complex by SkinCeuticals and ELASTIderm Eye Treatment by Obagi contain active ingredients that can help reduce the appearance of bags, and keep your eyes looking young for years to come.
Dark under-eye circles can develop for any one of several reasons, depending on the individual. For instance, under-eye circles can be genetic, or caused by fatigue or excess sun exposure. In some cases, those with bags can also have circles, due to the shadows being created by bags.
Just like with under-eye bags, blepharoplasty and skin care products for the eyes can help minimize circles, but dermal fillers are also highly effective at treating circles. Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that can enhance and restore your facial features by promoting collagen production. These treatments can “fill in” the hollows and depressions below your eyes to reduce the darkness, and improve the appearance of your entire face for a more youthful look.
Addressing fine lines and wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes become more visible as you age due to factors such as repetitive activity, sun exposure, and loss of collagen and elasticity. One of the most effective ways to prevent fine lines and wrinkles from becoming more pronounced is to limit the time you spend in direct sunlight, and wear sunscreen at all times.
Several cosmetic treatments can help erase and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including Botox®, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, profractional laser treatment, BBL SkinTyte, SkinPen®, and more.
The best way to find out which treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon and/or licensed aesthetician. During your appointment, your surgeon or aesthetician will talk to you about your appearance and goals, and create a customized treatment plan that works best for you!
