Toronto Plastic Surgeons Use These Two Techniques to Wake Up Tired Eyes
It is said that “your eyes are the window to your soul”, as they can reveal what you are thinking and feeling.
Although this famous Shakespearean phrase has become a bit of a cliché over the years, it is true that your eyes communicate a great deal about you to those around you. In addition to reflecting your emotions, your eyes often show signs of fatigue and are one of the first areas of the face to age. Luckily, whether you suffer from puffiness, under-eye hollows, or visible dark circles, Toronto plastic surgeons now offer 2 effective techniques to wake up tired eyes, helping patients to refresh and rejuvenate their appearance.
Refreshing Your Appearence
Rejuvenate Your Under-eye Area with Injectables
Although a number of cosmetic companies offer quick-fix products such as pads and creams to refresh the under eye area, these solutions are temporary and do not deliver dramatic results. Unfortunately, many individuals are plagued with dark circles, which are characterized by a hollowing in the under-eye area and often make individuals appear tired or older than their age.
This genetic condition, caused by a reduction in fat and bone under the eyes, can be treated by your Toronto plastic surgeon with an injectable filler such as Juvéderm Volbella or Restylane. Since these fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, they are ideal for the delicate under eye area, as they effectively add volume without leading to the development of bumps beneath the skin. Although your eyes reveal a great deal about you, they no longer need to expose your age thanks to this innovative solution for tired eyes.
Rejuvenate Your Under-eye Area with Surgery
Although Toronto dermal filler is a long-lasting solution for the under eye area, it requires maintenance treatments to preserve the results. Patients who are interested in a more permanent outcome may be good candidates for blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. This procedure is designed to combat common signs of aging in both the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty is completely customized to suit each patient’s individual needs, can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or a combination of the two for more dramatic results.
With age, many individuals find that their upper eyelids become heavier and begin to sag. As a result, they often appear tired even when they are well rested. If a patient’s upper eyelids are particularly heavy, their vision may also be impeded, negatively impacting their quality of life.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty works to correct droopiness or hooding of the upper eyelids. It makes patients appear more awake while also restoring their vision and comfort. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty, on the other hand, targets under-eye bags, creases, and puffiness. It effectively smoothes the skin below the eyes and counteracts visible signs of aging, which helps patients appear more refreshed and youthful.
