Things that make eyes age faster include seasonal allergies, eye rubbing when you feel tired, tugging on the skin with makeup brushes or exfoliants, using harsh makeup removers and wipes, dry eyelids, the use of Latisse and other eyelash enhancers can darken the skin, sun damage, certain medications, and more!
In performing minimally invasive eyelid rejuvenation, Dr. Marmur may use fractional laser skin resurfacing to improve your complexion’s tone and texture and accelerate your skin’s natural healing response. Safe, simple in-office treatments with the Fraxel® laser provide excellent results with minimal recovery time or activity restrictions. At Marmur Medical, we can customize the depth of your Fraxel treatment depending on what you are hoping to address.
Another choice for non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation is radiofrequency energy with Thermage®. Thermage provides gentle heating to tighten existing collagen and generate new collagen production, making lax skin appear taut and youthful. Thermage eye treatment aims to reduce wrinkles in the upper eyelids and eye bag area and create a more alert, well-rested appearance.
Based on your concerns and the degree of eyelid aging you’re experiencing, Dr. Marmur might also recommend adding a combination of injectable products such as neuromodulators (Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) and facial fillers to your minimally invasive eyelid rejuvenation. Neuromodulators prevent the muscle contractions that pull your eyebrows down. They can help smooth wrinkles like crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and brow furrows and could give your eyes an elevated arch. When injected into the area below the eyes, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm can minimize the dark undereye circles that can occur due to volume loss, leading to prominent tear troughs.
