How Eye Rejuvenation Can Take Years off Your Face with Ease

Typically, most people start noticing the early signs of aging around the eyes as early as their 20s or 30s. These signs can make you look older, or they can make you look tired, angry, or sad.

With eye rejuvenation at Marmur Medical, our experts help enhance your appearance with quick results that we hope you will love.

What is Eye Rejuvenation?

The skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate than anywhere else on your face. At least ten muscles of the eye area create movement of the skin which, over time, can lead to fine lines. The natural aging process, sun exposure, and muscle movement can cause skin to thin even further due to collagen loss, meaning your eyes may be one of the first areas to show signs of premature aging, including:

  • Drooping, sagging eyelids
  • Crow’s feet
  • Tired, saggy-looking eyes
  • Facial hollowing
  • Dark undereye circles
  • Under Eye bags

Along with collagen loss, other things that make eyes age faster include:

  • Seasonal allergies
  • Rubbing the eyes when tired
  • Tugging on the skin with makeup brushes or exfoliants
  • Using harsh makeup removers and wipes
  • Dry eyelids
  • Latisse and other eyelash enhancers (darken skin)
  • Sun damage
  • Medications

Minimally invasive eye rejuvenation is a simple procedure that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, enhances skin tone and texture, and accelerates the skin’s natural healing response. With minimal downtime, you’ll experience excellent results following your eye rejuvenation.

Eye Rejuvenation Procedures

The procedures required to effectively rejuvenate the eye area depend on your concerns and the degree of aging you’re experiencing. When you marry these in-office procedures with our award winning photodynamic, anti-aging MMSkincare system using the MMSphere LED light, you will see your TruSkin age decrease by years!

Dr. Marmur may begin your eye rejuvenation procedure with Fraxel® or Sciton laser skin resurfacing. With a minimal recovery time, safe and effective Fraxel® and Sciton provide excellent results because we customize your treatment depending on your aesthetic goals.  For less downtime than 3-7 days, ask us about Clear + Brilliant Touch or microneedling and PRP. We often follow these laser procedures immediately with a chemical peel plus the home MMSkincare system for best performance.

Thermage is the only tissue tightening device FDA cleared for non-laser eyelid skin tightening. In one hour, this procedure can tighten the laxity around the eyelids with zero downtime and almost zero swelling or redness. We place plastic eye protection shields over your eyes beneath your eyelids, like contact lenses, otherwise it is a very straightforward procedure. Dr. Marmur recommends this to be done yearly with treatment of your face, jawline, and neck. Both men and women love this procedure.

To enhance the results of your eyelid rejuvenation, Dr. Marmur might also recommend injectable treatments like neuromodulators (Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) and facial fillers. Be sure to ask us about the new filler options using the cannula technique.

Neuromodulators work by reducing the muscle contractions that squint, furrow, squeeze, or pull your eyebrows down. With no downtime, neuromodulators smooth wrinkles like crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and brow furrows making you look, and feel, more relaxed, pleasant, and rested.

Hyaluronic acid fillers help restore the undereye area by addressing volume loss and minimizing the dark undereye circles that can lead to prominent tear troughs. Dr. Marmur and her team specialize in using fillers and PRP beneath and around the eyes, even in the eyebrow, to shape and restore beautiful eyes.

Together, these different modalities can tighten and smooth under eye skin and promote new collagen production:
