Our eyes say so much about ourselves and the way we feel. It is important that they send out a true reflection of our emotions. This is one of the primary ways we communicate with others. We want our eyes to look happy, welcoming and relaxed.
Unfortunately, sometimes unintentionally, the eye area can convey negative emotions such as anger or stress with a frown. They can look tired or older than their years with dark circles or tear troughs, a lowered brow or crow’s feet lines. Sometimes, the surrounding skin looks crepey and loses its lustre.
These are issues we can address with a variety of treatment possibilities. In most cases, there is minimal or no downtime. We all want to look our best, but, more importantly, we don’t want to put out an appearance of negativity.
So, what can we do?
This can make a huge impact when it comes to getting rid of the frown, lifting the brow and opening the eyes as well as reducing some of the ageing lines. This is such a safe and simple treatment with no downtime and within 1-2 weeks, all these problems are looking so much better.
There are a few concerns around the eye area that can be addressed using dermal fillers. New products and techniques allow us to treat problems giving soft and natural results.
Nobody wants to be asked repeatedly if they are tired. Dark under eye circles can give this appearance and in many cases can be improved using dermal fillers.
Hollowing in the temple area can be quite ageing. Dermal filler placed here can soften this appearance and help restore a more youthful facial shape.
As we get older, the outside edges of the brow start to turn down and this can also make us appear tired or sad. Filler can help lift the brow and improve the contour of the forehead.
A thorough facial assessment is the key to working out a personalised treatment plan.
The delicate skin around the eyes can be treated with a skin tightening device using radio frequency energy. This can improve the appearance of the skin, is painless and has no downtime.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP is a treatment that uses your body’s own growth factors to stimulate collagen. Blood is taken and prepared to extract the plasma that is rich in platelets and therefore growth factors. This is then injected into the delicate skin around the eyes to stimulate collagen and reduce crepiness. This is one of the few procedures where we can treat the eyelid skin right to the lash line. This treatment does have a few days of downtime with some swelling and possible bruising. Three treatments are best about 6 weeks apart.
We all need to look after the delicate eye area. Be careful with all products you use here and get some advice about the best skin care for you from a professional. At Shine, we offer a complimentary skin or facial assessment. Please take advantage of this and make the most of your valuable assets.
