The skin around your eyes is delicate and is often one of the first areas on your face to show the signs of aging. Cosmetic neuromodulation and fillers are injectables that can temporarily improve the appearance of the eye area.
Cosmetic botulinum toxin products like Botox® and Xeomin® treat dynamic wrinkles, also called fine lines. Dynamic wrinkles develop because of muscle movements.
The most common areas for dynamic wrinkles are the crow’s feet around the eyes, the frown lines between the brows, and forehead lines. Botox stops the signals between facial nerves and muscles, smoothing wrinkles for up to four months.
Cosmetic dermal fillers add volume to where you need it, like the tear troughs under your eyes.
Under the eyes, dermal fillers correct the sunken look. Above the eyes, dermal fillers can provide structure and lift for sagging skin.
Some cosmetic fillers add volume, while others stimulate your body to make new collagen for long-lasting results. Dermal fillers can last up to 24 months, depending on the type. Then, they break down harmlessly over time.
Botox and dermal fillers are only short-term solutions. They don’t negate the need for surgery or help you to delay it, so if you’re looking for long-lasting results, cosmetic eye surgery could be the ideal solution.
Dr. Habib offers cosmetic blepharoplasty and brow lifts at Northeast Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which Dr. Habib removes extra skin and fat under your eyes (under-eye bags), above your eyes (sagging upper lids), or both. If your eyelids droop, making you look tired, a blepharoplasty procedure may be the right choice to give you a more youthful and rested appearance.
A brow lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which Dr. Habib elevates the brows to reestablish their previous place on your face before gravity takes its toll. If your brows sink lower than they once did, making you look angry, a brow lift could be right for you. Generally, a brow lift offers a smoother forehead and restored brow arches.
If you have under eye bags or sagging skin along with sinking brows, you might qualify for a combination of the two cosmetic surgeries.
