Tackle Signs of Aging Eyes

allysonShould I be using eye cream?

The answer is YES.  The skin around the eyes is delicate and thin and one of the first areas to show signs of aging.  Eye creams with antioxidants and growth factors can help keep the skin around the eyes hydrated, treat signs of aging, and make your entire complexion appear more youthful. Neocutis Lumière Eye Cream  is a favorite in our Medical Spa as it targets fine lines and dark circles using growth factors to repair fine lines, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and caffeine to treat puffiness/dark circles.  Not only can it be used under the eye, it is also indicated for the eyelids.  Of course prevention of damage is always key, so sunscreen and sunglasses are important as well.  Tackle these premature signs of aging by prevention and treatment for your best result.

“Got dark circles?” This article in the April 2015 issue of InStyle magazine recommends adding a cream with caffeine to your eye-illuminating plan for an added boost. Lumière Bio-Restorative Eye Cream (with caffeine) is just the trick for reducing the appearance of under eye darkness!

Younger Looking Eyes…

This past year I have begun combining 3 different modalities to help rejuvenate the upper and lower eyelids and the areas around them. The results have been quite good. The procedure is relatively quick and the recovery is well tolerated.

Two of the treatments, upper lid blepharoplasty and lower lid CO-2 laser resurfacing, are traditional more “old school” options while the third, filler to the upper cheek area, represents on the newer and fastest growing areas of cosmetic medicine.

The upper lid Blepharoplasty removes the excess skin and fat of the upper lid. Patients frequently complain that this skin makes them look older and more tired than they feel. Removing it opens up the upper lid and relieves that heaviness many patients complain of.

The CO 2 laser is a resurfacing laser the I use to treat the lower lids. The laser applies heat to the lower lid skin which causes it to tighten and resurface itself. The end result is a smoother tighter lower lid with significantly fewer fine lines and a much less of crepe texture.

The final component employes the fillers which have become immensely popular and wide spread. Examples are Restylane® and Juvederm®. The fillers are placed either in the tear trough, at the lower lid / cheek junction, in the upper cheek itself to re-volumize this area or in all of the above and give a smoother and more youthful appearance.

This combination of time proven and safe treatments has yielded very nice results. If you are interested please contact us at CorbettCosmetic.com or via E mail at Misty@corbettcosmeticsurgery.com
