Kiss Tired Eyes Goodnight

Addressing tired eyes is one of the most common requests I get from patients. After all, the skin around our eyes is most vulnerable to signs of ageing. Delicate and six times thinner than facial skin, the eye contour area makes it easy for traces of ageing to present itself, manifesting as tired eyes, dark circles, puffiness, crow’s feet, wrinkles, or droopy eyelids.

Want to restore youthfulness to your eye area? Here are some of my recommended treatments.

1. BOTOX BROW LIFT

BEST FOR: DROOPY
BROWS AND EYELIDS

When skin in the eye area ages, collagen and elastin levels dip. This in turn makes the upper face look tired and droopy. By strategically injecting Botox in the muscles near the brow bone, we can relax these muscles that pull the brows downwards. This allows the upward-pulling forehead muscles to work with less opposition, creating an energised eye contour area with beautiful brow arches that indirectly lift upper eyelids.

What I really like about this treatment is that it also smooths out crow’s feet and frown lines such as the unwanted ’11’ between brows, creating an overall more youthful look.

Results last 4 months.

2. EYES BY THERMAGE

BEST FOR: DROOPY EYELIDS, EYE WRINKLES, EYEBAGS

If you’re looking for something less invasive, this celebrity favourite face-lifting treatment works like an iron for your skin. Using a special eye tip, Thermage transmits radiofrequency energy to heat the collagen-rich layer of the skin, tightening and lifting the upper and lower eyelids. The stimulation of collagen production works in tandem to reduce heaviness in the upper eyelids, improve crow’s feet, and soften the appearance of eyebags.

3. TEAR TROUGHS AND UPPER
CHEEK FILLERS

BEST FOR: EYEBAGS,
DARK EYE CIRCLES,
TEAR TROUGH DEFORMITIES

When it comes to reducing eye bags and tear trough deformity, I recommend using Juvederm dermal fillers with VYCROSS technology like Volbella or Voluma. The cross-linked hyaluronic acid provides a natural lift that blends the transition between the lower eyelid and upper cheeks. This erases a shadow effect, reducing the appearance of dark circles and refreshing a tired appearance.

Results last 12-18 months.

4. EYE BRIGHTENING MICROINJECTIONS

BEST FOR: DARK EYE CIRCLES,
EYE WRINKLES

Undereye circles can appear darker due to genetic pigmentation or darkening caused by dilated blood vessels. For such cases, skin boosters like Teosyal Redensity 1 can brighten and lighten your eye contour area with Glutathione, amino acids, antioxidants and vitamins.

Skin healers like Rejuran-I, on the other hand, help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Developed specifically for the undereye area, this highly regarded anti-ageing treatment repairs damaged skin and facilitates collagen growth with the help of DNA fragments from salmon germ cells.

For microinjections, I recommend a treatment every 3-4 weeks for the first 3 sessions and a maintenance treatment every 4-6 months after.
