Everyone wants a refreshed youthful look, and it starts with the eyes. Unfortunately, the skin around the eyes is one of the first areas where we see aging. So taking care of this delicate area is of utmost importance. This week’s blog will focus on everything eyes: preventative, maintenance, and rejuvenating procedures.
It all starts with a great eye cream. Whether you are 15 or 55, everyone can benefit from an eye cream as part of their daily skincare routine. Moisturizers are important for the skin around the eyes, which contains no oil glands. No oil glands= no moisture= a more noticeable appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. Our newest eye cream, SkinCeuticals A.G.E. eye complex is a hit among our patients. This innovative eye cream enhances radiance, improves dark circles and puffiness, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Adding this to your skin care regimen will give your eyes radiance and improved texture.
A popular eye treatment at the medical spa is Pellevé. Our medical estheticians recommend this treatment for patients who are seeking improvement of the eye without surgery. Pellevé is an innovative technology that stimulates collagen production to tighten skin and reduce facial wrinkles without surgery. It is FDA-approved for the non-invasive cosmetic correction of mild to moderate facial wrinkles for certain skin types.
Pellevé is not a laser; it is a radiofrequency device. This non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatment precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radio wave technology without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. Our patients can see results in just one treatment, but a series of three provides optimal results.
For those patients seeking treatment for more aggressive eye wrinkling, there is a surgical option. Blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove excess skin from the eyelid or loose skin around the eye area. Dr. Rudderman performs eyelid Surgery on men and women of all ages and stages in life. Eyelid surgery is one of the most popular surgeries done today because it can take 5, 10, 15 years off an aging face and keep you looking younger for as many years.
If surgery is not an option, stay tuned for Allergan’s newest injectable, Volbella®. More details coming this fall.
