Maximize your eyes

Are there any cosmetic treatments out there that would maximize my eyes?

How to make your eyes look younger and more beautiful.

Have you ever noticed a baby’s eyes? They are large, sparkling, pools of color, with lashes longer than you have ever seen. Just about every one of us can say, “Yes, my eyes were like that! What happened?” Unfortunately, the aging process changes how we look; our eyes appear smaller, the lashes break and eyebrows lighten, blue circles develop under the eyes and wrinkles start to form.

Gravity, stress of everyday life, environment, genes, all contribute to how we look as we get older. As we age the support system in our face becomes more fragile; our collagen breaks down so our bone structure is more readily evident. The eye sockets become larger and, therefore, the eyes become recessed and leave the impression that our eyes are getting smaller. With the enlargement of the eye socket the hollows around the eyes becomes more evident. 

There are make up tricks that can hide these minor imperfections, however, there comes a time when these superficial adjustments are not enough. Mascara no longer lengthens, eyebrow pencil fades, and coverage of the wrinkles only looks artificial and draws attention to those deepening lines. Also, the concealer; that you would not leave home without, only congeals in the valleys under your eyes.

There are many longer-term, non-surgical treatments that will enhance the eye to retrieve that youthful appearance. However, before having treatment it would be wise to investigate your chosen physician carefully. Beneath the skin, around the eye is a map work of arteries and nerves; to have these treatments, without the risk of eye damage, be sure to seek out a physician that specializes in cosmetic enhancements, has long term experience and, you have seen his work.

I suggest the following treatments to alleviate the aging eye:

  • BotulinumtoxinA (Botox, Xeomin) for the fine lines outside the corners of the eyes (crowfeet) helps smooth this area and prevent the deepening of the fine lines.  Injected proficiently, this treatment is also great for lifting drooping brows.
  • Latisse for the lengthening of the eye lashes and thickening of the eyebrows. So far, proven to be the best treatment for loss of hair in these areas.
  • Redensity II, a semi-crosslinked Hyaluronic Acid with amino acids, antioxydants and vitamins and minerals to treat the delicate under eye area – a safe and effective, specially formulated treatment for the reduction of eye circles, and hollows. Once this filler is injected the eye appears larger as the hollows under the eyes lessen and disappear.

All these treatments are non-surgical, non-invasive, and not painful and all can be done in one appointment in less than thirty minutes. So, what are you waiting for? Join the thousands of happy woman that have already discovered how to maximize their eyes.
