We typically communicate with our eyes. Without saying a word, sometimes a simple glance at someone will convey expressions of calm, surprise, fatigue, anger or uncertainty. ??This nonverbal expression is relayed by the position of the eyebrows and general appearance of the eyes.
Genetic predisposition and changes associated with aging may create an appearance that falsely represents an individual’s true emotional state. Fortunately there are various treatment options to change any undesirable, unconscious expressions.
Options may include injectables such as Botox®and / or filler materials (i.e. Juvederm®or Restylane® which require minimal “downtime” that achieve subtle yet significant reduction in the appearance of aging lines and folds.
Chemical peels, micro-needling or laser treatments are effective in diminishing fine lines and wrinkling around the eyes, resulting in smoother skin texture and more even pigment appearance.
Surgical alternatives include limited incision brow lift, upper eyelid lift, and lower eyelid lift. These procedures obviously require a bit more recovery but impart significantly longer benefit and rejuvenation.??So how in the world can someone know what is best for them as each one of us ages differently and the options are so varied?
That’s where the experience and expertise of a specialist formally trained in cosmetic plastic surgery is most valuable, not only in the technical aspects of executing the desired procedure but in recommending the best treatment option in the first place.
