As we reach our late 30s, 40s and beyond, we begin to witness the subtle or not so subtle signs of aging. Frown lines get deeper, crow's feet appear around the outside corner of the eyes, and our eyes start to show our biological age.
If you've been considering getting BOTOX® injections, thinking that they will help smooth out your wrinkles and make you look younger, there's something else that we'd like to mention.
A large percentage of our patients are women, many of whom are in their 40s and 50s and eager to reverse the signs of aging. They come to our office thinking it's time to begin BOTOX injections.
They point to the frown lines in between their eyebrows and say that they want to say goodbye to them, neglecting to mention the fact that their eyes make them look tired.
While smoothing out frown lines is a worthy goal, there is something else that can make a difference as well. You see, most women in their late 40s and early 50s show the symptoms of aging in their lower eyelid.
Many of them are aware of eyelid surgery, but they do not know that there are nonsurgical treatments that can treat the signs of aging in their eyes.
The noninvasive treatments for aging in the lower eyelid have advanced in recent years. Today's modern procedures include the use of injectable fillers that add volume to a hollow lower lid and reduces the appearance of dark circles.
Are your eyes aging you?
If you're thinking about getting BOTOX injections, our question is, "How do your eyes look?"
We understand that BOTOX may benefit you for sure, but if your eyes look tired no matter how much sleep you get, or if they simply don't look as healthy as they once did, then you may also want to consider using fillers to address the signs of aging in the eyes.
When patients are showing the signs of aging through hollow, tired or unhealthy-looking eyes, this noninvasive treatment for eyelids can yield dramatic results in just one visit with our Oxnard plastic surgeon.
