If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the skin and lashes around them are the curtains. Like your smile, your eyes reveal a lot about you. The problem is, sometimes, they lie. You may feel energetic and happy, but your eyes say otherwise. According to studies related to cosmetic treatments, men and women whose eyes are hooded, surrounded by lines, or framed by frown lines are perceived as being not only older but also less friendly. If you want your eyes to reflect who you really are, you may need to take a good, hard look at the signs of aging you need to address.
We love working with the clients who visit for anti-aging treatments. In many cases, eyelid rejuvenation is much easier than one imagines. Here, we offer up a few tips on how to make your eyes stand out for all the right reasons.
If you have visited us in La Mesa or Murrieta, you know that Botox is one of our signature treatments for refreshing the eyes. Dr. Emery’s training and experience combine to make this injectable treatment both comfortable and effective. The slight amount of purified botulinum toxin that is injected to the superficial muscle beneath the skin can ease lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet, and much more.
Perhaps one of the most common uses of Botox today is to lift the sagging brow. Patients have seen just how efficient this treatment is for reducing frown lines, or erasing them altogether. Now, they are testing what Botox can do to open up the eyes, too; and they are loving what they see! The Botox brow lift, as it’s called, takes only a few minutes in our comfortable Murrieta or La Mesa office. Results appear gradually over about 7 days, and they can last from 3 to 6 months.
Usually, when we talk about making the eyes stand out, it is injectables that get all the attention. Accentuating the eyes also involves the lashes, though. Latisse goes above and beyond what your mascara can do by encouraging growth from the follicle that dictates thickness, color, and length. When Latisse is added to your daily routine, you may even say buy-bye falsies!
