When it comes to the signs of aging, the eyes have it. The delicate skin surrounding our eyes develops wrinkles that we may be able to shrug off as “laugh lines,” but the skin can also sag, causing droopy eyes or bags under the eyes that belie or call more attention to our age than we would like.
Happily, while there are effective procedures like blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) that are among the top surgical procedures requested by patients.
In a market that is expected to grow by $11.24 billion by the year 2024, according to a new research report, demand for procedures like blepharoplasty is even increasing among a younger population base.
Dr. Mikel Lo is one of the few fellowship-trained ophthalmic plastic surgeons, or oculoplastic surgeons, in the country, having trained in both cosmetic surgery and ophthalmology. He has years of experience in both blepharoplasty and blepharoptosis.
And, About Faces has several solutions that don’t require surgery and that show quick results.
Non-Surgical and Minimally Invasive Solutions
About Faces Cosmetics also performs non-surgical treatments to improve the appearance of the eyes:
- Fat augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure which transfers a small amount of the body’s fat to areas of the face that have lost volume. Fat augmentation is commonly used in a number of areas because the injection of one’s own fat creates a natural look. Swelling and bruising may last for up to 2 weeks. The results of fat augmentation often last for years.
- Other injections: Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® are used around the eyelid area to reduce the appearance of wrinkles between the eyebrows or under the lower eyelid—where crow’s feet crop up. It’s an office procedure with no down time. Dr. Lo is an expert at shaping the brows and eyelids.
- Eyelash growth: Latisse® was originally used to treat glaucoma, but it was found to stimulate eyelash growth. It takes about six to 12 weeks, usually, to notice longer lashes. Best of all, it’s a procedure done in the privacy of your own home and has no down time.
- Eyelash/eyebrow tinting: Many patients love getting their lashes and brows tinted. Our aesthetician will help you choose your color, if you don’t already have one in mind. Your lashes and eyebrows will be tinted skillfully and artistically.
The first step is having a consultation to see what needs to be done. Not everyone needs both upper and lower lids done.
