If you find yourself wearing a mask to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, now may be the perfect time to do something about the appearance of your eyes. The eye area is getting more attention these days, and popular eye rejuvenation procedures are growing even more popular. Read on to learn about some surgical and non-surgical ways to make your eyes look their best.
One of the best ways to achieve a more rested, refreshed appearance is addressing the eyes. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a popular cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat and dropping skin of the upper eyelids. This surgery also removes puffy bags under the eyes while tightening loose lower eyelid skin. One of the biggest reasons this is a popular procedure is that the resulting scars are minimal as the surgical incisions are made at the natural crease in the upper eyelid and at or behind the lower lash line of the lower lid.
If you’re not ready to go under the knife to improve the appearance of your tired-looking eyes, laser blepharoplasty can tighten the lower and upper eyelid skin. This laser treatment can be done in minutes under local anesthesia or mild sedation.
If dark circles, eye bags and hollowness in the upper cheeks are a concern, a mid-face lift may be just what you need. This procedure consists of lifting the upper cheek to blend with the lower eyelid, removing dark circles and the deflated look of the eyelid.
Botos is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment around, as it smooths lines and wrinkles in the upper one-third of the face caused by facial expressions such as frowning or squinting. Botox injections address horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes. Treatment takes minutes, results appear in 3-5 days, and results last anywhere from 3 to 5 months.
Make your eyes pop even more by growing longer, fuller and darker eyelashes. Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription for the treatment of inadequate or not enough lashes. Latisse is a 16-week treatment with initial results seen after about four weeks. Just one swipe of the topical solution along the lashline each night, Latisse works gradually to provide remarkable results over time.
