Unfortunately, the natural aging process can cause the skin around your eyes to sag and appear shallow, making you appear years older than you really are.
If you’re ready to take years off of your eyes without any surgery, then check out three non-invasive treatments that will give your eyes a youthful look.
1. Banish Dark Circles with Eye Fillers
If your eyes do not look as vibrant or youthful as they used to be, try facial fillers. Eye fillers are designed to restore lost volume around the eye area and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles for tighter, plumper skin.
There are several popular types of eye fillers currently on the market, such as Juvederm Volbella. This eye filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that can also be found naturally in your skin.
Injecting HA fillers under eyes can help diminish the look of dark circles resulting in a refreshed appearance. Because of Juvederm Volbella’s soft consistency, it works effectively to remove dark circles underneath the eyes as it molds very well with the surrounding tissues.
After the procedure, you will see the results instantly which can last up to 12 months. The common side effects are redness, bruising and swelling of the treated area. Other side effect may include the Tyndall effect, or a bluish discoloration if the fillers are not injected properly in the skin. But in the hands of a skilled and experienced aesthetic doctor, this can be avoided.
Remember to consult only a certified and experienced aesthetic doctor in Singapore who has a long track record of providing good and natural results.
2. Smooth Fine Lines and Wrinkles with Botulinum Toxin (or more commonly known as Botox)
Smiling makes a person look so happy and joyful. However, being full of expression may cause fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes to appear. Repetitive facial muscle movements such as smiling or laughing are few of the main causes of wrinkles around the eyes.
If you are bothered by having crow’s feet or the lines in the corner of your eyes, a Botox treatment can help you to smoothen them out. Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world because of its safety and effectiveness to remove wrinkles without surgery.
The injection works by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Once injected, the overlying skin relaxes which reduces the appearance of creases in the skin. The treatment is very tolerable and feels like tiny ant bites.
The full results of Botox can be seen after two weeks and can last up to three to four months. A Botox injection can be used for more than just the eye area. Many women and even men rave about its effects on smile lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
But if you’re still hesitant to have Botox because of the fear of having an unnaturally frozen look, rest assured that this is very dependent on the amount of Botox injected and the aesthetic doctor who injects it.
Find a conservative Botox doctor in Singapore who is willing to start with a low dosage making sure that you will have a natural result. And if ever you will need more units, it is always easier to top up.
3. Lift the Brows Naturally with Ultherapy
It’s not just about the area directly around the eyes, but also other areas of the face which can improve the overall look of the eyes. If your eyebrows are lowering down, you may notice that your eyes do not appear as large or awake as they once were.
Ultherapy is a FDA-cleared treatment to achieve a natural brow lift without surgery. Ultherapy uses the body’s regenerative properties to gradually lift skin on the eyebrows while softening lines and wrinkles.
The ultrasound treatment works by emitting focused ultrasound energy in the deeper layer of the skin which stimulates new collagen production elevating the brows giving you a more refreshed look. You can see the full results at least three months and can last for up to a year.
With the latest software upgrade, the Ultherapy treatment is more tolerable to patients. The new protocol includes lower energy but with more treatment lines. Latest research has shown that the number of transducer lines are very important in delivering the desired results.
If you want eyes that will maintain their youthfulness for months or years to come, consider a treatment intervention like eye fillers, Botox, and Ultherapy which can take years off your eyes without surgery or a painful recovery.
