Spotlight on Eyes

author: last updated:  

The eyes are one of the most important features of the face - bright and sparkly eyes make us look healthier, while hooded eyes and dark circles can make us look gloomy even when we’re not.

It’s no wonder that there are a range of different treatments targeted at making your eyes shine, so that’s where we’re directing our spotlight this month.

Please note, you should always be aware that the eye area is very delicate, so make sure you talk to an expert (like our doctors) to get the best care.

Crow’s Feet

One of the inevitable signs of ageing, crow’s feet are one of the most common complaints when it comes to the eye area. Tackling those fine lines makes a massive difference to the appearance of the eyes.

Botox is often the first, and most simple, step when it comes to making your eyes look more youthful - freezing the muscles that contract and cause the wrinkles to appear. Always visit a highly trained practitioner, so that you end up with a fresher, brighter look and avoid any frozen expressions.

If your lines are deeper or more pronounced, then dermal fillers can be an effective option to tackle the crow’s feet and wrinkles. Fillers plump up the underlying tissue around the eyes, leaving the skin smooth and youthful.

Stimulating collagen production is another way to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet - treatments like Dermaroller and Pixel Laser Resurfacing can be really effective in this area, but again, you need to make sure you visit a qualified practitioner who will protect your delicate under-eye skin.

Dropped Brows or Hooded Eyes

For some people, ageing results in the upper eyelid drooping down slightly, leaving a hooded appearance that can leave you looking dour, tired, or unhappy. Luckily there is a way to help correct this without painful eyelid surgery - a Botox Brow Lift.

Because the brows and lids are close together, lifting the browline naturally lifts the upper eye area, leaving your eyes looking younger and more open, making a subtle but dramatic change to your appearance. Plus, if you like to wear eyeshadow, it’ll be easier to apply and more visible once it’s on!

Dark Circles and Eye Bags

Dark circles and eye bags can make you look exhausted, and when they’re there all the time (rather than just after a late night), it can be quite upsetting - especially if people are always asking if you’re tired.

If either of these issues is getting you down, or making you look older and tireder than you actually are, there is a treatment that can help.

Tear Trough Treatment can help to counteract dark circles and eye bags and leave you looking brighter, fresher and younger. Dermal fillers are used to lift the tear troughs - semi-circular depressions under each eye that occur as we age - removing the drooped and baggy appearance, and lightening the dark circles caused by shadows.

If your eyes aren’t looking as bright, fresh, young or sparkly as you’d like, don’t let them get you down, find a treatment that will give you the look you’ll love.
