Eye-Related Cosmetic Treatments That Take Years Off Your Life
The key to better eye appearance, is to restore moisture and help tighten the skin. Because the skin around the eyes is so delicate, the loss of elasticity and hyaluronic acid (the body’s natural hydrator) associated with getting older, is often first noticed this area. Wearing a daily moisturizer with at least 30 SPF for UV protection is a good way to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, use of topical products can provide the intense moisturizing needed to make skin firmer. Choose an eye cream with retinol to decrease the appearance of wrinkles.
Cosmetic fillers are another beneficial, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. Dermal fillers such as Restylane or Restylane Silk actually restore volume to the under eye area. These fillers improve sagging and create a smooth, youthful skin surface.
Eyelashes also thin as we age. The topical medication Latisse is a wonderful option to improve the length and thickness of eyelashes.
