Do dark circles, hollow spaces, bags, or fine lines around your eyes make you look tired? You aren't alone. Eye area issues are common problems that send people to medical spas. From fillers to Botox, if you want to freshen your face and brighten your eyes, take a look at the top treatments to explore.
Dermal Fillers Can Help Hollow Areas
As the name implies, fillers fill in spaces. This treatment is an easy way to plump your skin and add volume to your face. While you might think of fillers as a way to get that perfect puffy celeb-style pout, this injectable can do much more. Under-the-eye use of a filler can reduce the look of dark circles caused by indented or depressed tissue. But it can't change or eliminate circles caused by pigmentation. A filler can also reduce the appearance of some fine lines and give you a more youthful appearance.
Laser Skin Treatments Can Tighten the Eye Area
Laser treatments are another option to freshen your face and brighten the eye area. This procedure can tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles or fine lines around the eyes. While this isn't a permanent treatment, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) notes that the results of laser skin resurfacing can last for several years. Even though you won't need to go back to the medical spa for repeat treatments every few weeks or months, you may need a refresh as your skin continues to age and change.
Botox Can Smooth Fine Eye Lines
Has squinting left you with fine lines around your eyes? Pair these with dark circles or baggy skin and these eye lines can make you look tired. Botox is a popular injectable that can reduce the look of fine lines for months at a time. The injectable stops the nerve signal to the muscles of the face. This allows the muscles, and the skin over them, to smooth. As the skin smoothes, wrinkles and fine lines appear to fade away.
Combination Care Can Freshen Your Face
Do you need to choose one cosmetic treatment for your eye area? No, you can choose a combination of procedures or pair medical spa procedures with other options. If you have a few different eye-related concerns, talk to your cosmetic provider about different treatments to combine. This could include dermal fillers and Botox injections or laser skin resurfacing and another procedure.
You can also combine medical spa services with at-home prescription and over-the-counter treatments or non-medical options (such as a hydrating facial). Talk to your provider about the best choices for your needs. While at-home and non-medical services won't provide long-lasting benefits, they can complement a minimally-invasive procedure.
Contact a local medical spa to learn more about services, such as Botox injections.
