Whether due to fatigue, genetics or the natural aging process, under-eye bags and a tired appearance are one of the most common cosmetic concerns.
Many patients turn to cosmetic surgery in the quest to restore youthfulness, but the medical aesthetics industry offers several non-surgical eye rejuvenation options that can restore the face.
Top Non-Surgical Eye Rejuvenation Options
Thanks to the popularity of anti-aging procedures, there are several aesthetics treatments for eye bags, hollows or eye wrinkles. As a medical professional, you will learn several of these treatments when you enroll in a Botox and dermal fillers course.
- Botox for crow’s feet and brow lines. Wrinkle relaxer injections like Botox (and similar botulinum toxins, such as Dysport) reduce fine lines and wrinkles that appear when you squint or smile. Botox reduces muscle contractions in the face that lead to visible wrinkles due to facial expressions. Decreasing muscle movement in the upper third of the face can have a drastic effect on the eye area by preventing visible wrinkles when the face is at rest. Botox has also successfully treated wrinkles between the eyebrows.
- Dermal fillers for dark circles and under eye bags. As we age, the natural fat in the face decreases and leads to an increase in lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid-based injectable fillers can correct smile lines and add volume to cheeks. It’s an excellent option for clients who wish to achieve a lower eye lift without surgery. The injectable can be used to correct under eye bags and dark circles under the eyes.
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for the under eye. PRP treatments can be used to address under eye hollows. It is a regenerative treatment, meaning the PRP injection leads to the stimulation of collagen and elastin, regenerating healthy skin tissue for natural results. The results from a PRP injection treatment can be seen within three to four months.
