Poems have been written about them, songs have been sung about them, and some say they are the window to the soul. One thing is for sure; our eyes are one of our most prominent features, and the skin that surrounds them gets wrinkles as we get older.
Years of expressing our emotions, hours of staring at computer screens, countless tubes of mascara – they all age our eyes slowly over time. Luckily, there are ways of getting our youthful bright eyes back!
A brow lift, also referred to as forehead lift, can have dramatic yet natural looking effects, taking years off the appearance of your upper face.
A brow lift tightens the soft tissue of the forehead which minimizes the horizontal lines that appear over time, as well as those frown lines that develop in between the eyebrows. There are several different methods to perform a great eyebrow lift, all with varying incision lengths and locations. A customized plan is developed based on your face shape and bone structure to give your face the best natural looking lift. An eyebrow lift is a great option that boasts a more bright-eyed appearance and long lasting results.
An eyelid lift, or eyelid surgery (also known as an upper blepharoplasty) is another youth restoring procedure that has been growing increasingly popular over the last few years. Many people are frustrated with their upper eyelids due to an excess of skin that hangs down and interrupts the eye’s natural contour. During eyelid surgery, tiny incisions are made in the natural crease of your eye and excess tissue is removed to create a more youthful appearance. Sometimes the area below the eyes is also treated with CO2 laser skin resurfacing to smooth and tighten the skin there as well. This procedure makes tired, aged eyes look smooth and lively once again, and only requires around 10 to 14 days of recovery time.
Many clients get an eyelid lift in combination with a brow lift for the most dramatic yet natural effects. The blend of these two procedures results in the ultimate upper face lift transformation, giving you a bright, youthful, energetic appearance. Not only will you look younger on the outside, you’ll feel younger on the inside too!
