Fillers may just be the perfect solution for minor imperfections – they are quick and easy, effective, long-lasting, and you don’t have to deal with the hassle and downtime that can come with other types of treatments. Read on for some information on how fillers can help that all-important area of the face – the eyes!
What Can Fillers Do for You?
Those “minor imperfections” seem to be magnified when they are around an important area, such as the eyes. Your eyes are the first thing people notice, and wrinkles, puffiness, and that hollowness under the eyes can all make you look tired and older than you are.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin (which are very much alike) are injected into the skin, although they are known as “neuromodulators,” not fillers. They work by relaxing “static” wrinkles, those wrinkles that are always present on your face, and are used on the upper third of the face. They can greatly reduce the appearance of those “11s” between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and even those lines on the forehead. In some cases, BOTOX Cosmetic can even be used to help correct asymmetric or droopy eyelids.
Dermal fillers, such as RADIESSE, can also help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and they can also help to add volume to the area under the eyes. As we age we lose volume in this area, which creates the appearance of eyebags. It also makes it look as if there are permanent dark shadows under the eyes. Fillers can plump up this area to give the eyes a brighter, more alert look.
You can even discuss with your doctor using both BOTOX Cosmetic and a dermal filler to help you achieve the results you want.
Minor imperfections in the eye area can make a big difference to how you look and how you feel about yourself, because how the eyes look can make such a difference to your overall appearance. However, these imperfections are easy enough to take care of, thanks to a filler or neuromodulator from Jeffrey C. Dawes, MD, FRCSC Plastic and Dermatologic Surgery in Calgary.
