As the passage of time, we see certain common changes that we can treat to dramatically improve the appearance, if not diminish entirely. Common complaints are heavy eyes, hooded eyelids, tired looking eyes, dark circles beneath the eyes and crows feet. We also hear complaints of the lack of volume and hollowing of the eyes. These changes occur due to the thinning of the overlying skin and soft tissue over the bony orbital rim and atrophy of the adjacent tissues and thinning of the skin occurs, leading to increased visibility of this deep attachment between the skin and orbital rim- the so called tear trough area.
Tear Trough and lack of volume/dark hollows
Placing Dermal Fillers in this hollowing can smooth the area, decrease the appearance of the dark circles and rejuvenate the area. Dermal fillers can be injected safely into the hollow and then massaging the area is a very popular and effective way of dealing with this common complaint.
The position and shape of the eyebrows are critical in defining the face. Ideally the female eyebrow is ‘gull wing’ shaped and is sited above the bony rim of the eye socket. The highest point of the eyebrow curve is two thirds from the middle edge. Male eyebrows are lower and straighter. The shape and position of eyebrows is determined by one muscle: the frontalis pulling upwards and four sets of muscles pulling the eyebrows down.
Careful use of Micro Botox ®, can adjust this balance to lift and enhance eyebrow shape and position. This may be supplemented with a Dermal Filler treatment to help support the eyebrow.
Using Botox® to lift the eyebrows can really help to open the eye area by relaxing the muscles pulling the eyes downwards and help lighten the look of hooded eyelids.
