How to Make Your Eyes Your Best Feature
Posted on August 30, 2021 by Dr. Carlos Chacon - Face Procedures
Studies have found that both men and women consider the eyes to be the most attractive part of a person’s face. It is therefore no surprise that so many patients come to Divino Plastic Surgery looking for procedures and treatments that enhance their eyes. In many cases, the way to make your eyes a more prominent, alluring feature is to address the imperfections like excess skin and wrinkles immediately surrounding the eyes. Here are some of the best ways to help make your eyes pop:
Lower Eyelid Surgery
It is common to develop dark circles or bags under your eyes, both of which make you look more tired. When you feel extremely well rested and still have those circles, it’s understandable to feel betrayed by your eyes and just wish you could show a more active, alert face to the world. Lower blepharoplasty is a surgery that specifically addresses the skin beneath your eyes. By repositioning fat to fill in the sunken areas, your eyes will start to stand out again.
When aging skin gets too heavy on your forehead, drooping skin can push down on your eyebrows, causing them to lose their youthful arch and making you look perpetually angry. That same sagging skin can also get heavy enough to push down on your upper eyelids, making them droop and look less attractive as well. Brow lift is an effective way to get rid of that excess skin along the forehead and fix the positioning of your eyebrows and eyelids for a rejuvenated, happier-looking appearance overall.
Crow’s feet are those infamous lines that form around the outer corners of your eyes as you get older. When these lines become more pronounced, they can pull the focus away from your eyes. The most effective way to minimize the appearance of those lines is with Botox. Carefully placed Botox injections will relax the muscles around your eyes so they do not contract. As time passes, your skin will smooth out because the muscles’ movements are no longer creating the lines. While you will need to get more injections every several months to maintain the results, you may consider that worthwhile to highlight your eyes and remove signs of aging from your face.
Who doesn’t love long, luscious lashes? If you weren’t blessed with naturally dark, thick eye lashes, you are likely to benefit from Latisse, an FDA-approved serum that is proven successful to both increase the number of hairs on your eye and lengthen them. After a few months of using Latisse, you should see a legitimate transformation in your eyelashes.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
The skin around your eyes is more sensitive than on most other parts of the body, so not all skin treatments are suitable for this region. Fortunately, laser skin resurfacing is gentle enough to treat the fine lines as well as damage caused by sun and aging. The treatment uses a laser to remove the top layers of skin to reveal healthier, younger-looking skin beneath.
