Eye Wrinkles, Eye Bags, and Sagging Skin.
We hear it all the time: “Where did these eye wrinkles come from? They weren’t here yesterday!” Once you see them, it is all you can see. You wake up one day to find that your skin is sagging above and below your eyes. No wonder your coworker asked if you were tired!
We live in a visual society, and one of the first things people notice about you is your eyes. Your eyelids are one of the first places to show age. We age at the same rate, but it is more apparent with the skin around the eyes because the skin there is thin. Genetics dictate the age that crow’s feet, under eye wrinkles, and sagging appear. Other factors can also weigh in such as sun damage and stress. And who doesn’t have stress in their life? We all want fewer wrinkles and tighter skin.
But you want a natural look, and you don’t want anybody to know you had anything done – and no surgery. Did you know that it’s possible to look better in time for that big event next week?
The aging process doesn’t stop, and you can’t turn back the clock, but you can slow down the process and look the best for your age.
What if I told you there are two steps you could take to dramatically improve the wrinkles and sagging around your eyes in just one week?
Step 1: Active FXTM – Laser Resurfacing
At the Institute for Laser and Aesthetic Medicine we get the best results for fine lines and tightening skin around the eye with Active FXTM in our experience of thousands of procedures. Active FXTM improves the texture, tone and tightness of the delicate skin around the eye. Active FXTM is a fractional CO2 laser procedure performed in a single 7-minute treatment with minimal patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles and scars, as well as remove brown spots and other irregularities. It also stimulates the formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time.
Active FXTM Fractional Laser Treatment
With fractional laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster than older methods and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. With facial resurfacing, the skin goes through an initial healing period, which includes redness that typically lasts three and a half days. At this point, most patients return to normal activities and makeup may be applied.
Our patients often see dramatic results in just one week.
Step 2: Cosmetic Injectables
So what about those crow’s feet and frown lines between the eyes?
Hearing the words Botox, Dysport or Xeomin scares up a picture of a frozen face with no expression. Nobody really wants that! Not only does it look bad – everybody will know you had something done. Dr. DeBias says that “most patients want to maintain use of their muscle tone so they still have movement, resulting in a very natural and relaxed look.” Simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet and forehead creases is ideal. Most patients find that after just one cosmetic injectable treatment, crow’s feet and frown lines are smoother and less apparent.
At that big event, everyone will be telling you that you look great – and you do!
Every patient is different. Come in for a consultation to determine whether Active FXTM Fractional Laser Treatment or cosmetic injectables will be right for you.
