The eyes are the windows to the soul, and arguably the most expressive part of the face. This expression can lead to the formation of lines and wrinkles, which can become a bugbear for even the most confident of people. Around the eyes, there are a few areas that can start to show signs of age early; the tear trough, the bridge, and the outer corners, which can all be amenable to eye treatment with dermal fillers.
Understanding Eye Treatment
As tissue structure and muscles degenerate through the natural maturation process, the support they provide the eyelids reduces. Skin sags, and fat can migrate the area below your eyes, leading to the puffy appearance of eye bags. An accumulation of fluid can also create this undesirable swollen look.
The ‘scrunched’ look of the skin on the nose can be caused by repetitive facial expressions, and can occasionally be a side effect of having Botox in other areas as nasal muscles overcompensate for reduced movement in the forehead.
Also known as laugh lines or character lines, these wrinkles develop with time and facial expressions. Caused or worsened by factors like sun exposure, smoking, and pollution, which reduce collagen and elastin production, skin sags and loses its ability to ‘bounce back’ from facial expressions.
Masters Of Injectables
Our doctors are highly experienced injectors, with around 50 years experience between them, and have perfected the art of subtly enhancing the balance of the face. This includes improving the appearance of the eye area using eye treatment. The key factor in understanding injectables and how they can help is knowing the difference between Botox and dermal fillers; Botox is a brand name for Botulinum Toxin Type A that temporarily paralyses muscles so the skin above them appears smoother, and dermal fillers add or reintroduce volume into specific areas. We use the brands Botox and Juvederm as clinically effective solutions to a plethora of conditions. Utilising injectables to revolumise, or otherwise treat, specific areas of the face is second nature to our doctors, whose work is unparalleled.
