Wrinkles around eyes begin to develop on our face as we age and for those who live in Tampa, FL, these signs of aging may appear prematurely due to sun damage. More than any other area of cosmetic concern, lines and wrinkles around eyes are the foremost reason women seek out a plastic surgeon for the first time.
Causes and Solutions to Wrinkles Around Eyes
Starting in the late twenties, a woman’s skin starts to change. The skin starts to lose its ability to heal and moisturize itself gradually, so by the time a woman reaches her thirties lines around the eyes have started to show. As time goes on, the wrinkles and lines get deeper and more noticeable. Although the process is undesirable, this is simply just another natural part of aging. Most people want to avoid them, but are actually engaging in behaviors that accelerate the development of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin around the eyes is especially susceptible to deeper lines and wrinkles as the dermis in this area is thinner and more sensitive.
One of the most common accelerations of wrinkles around the eyes is squinting while we are outside- the second reason is sun exposure. Wearing sunglasses that block UV rays can remedy both of these problems. Other reasons include chronic dehydration, lack of exercise, and poor diet. While you can take steps to slow down the appearance of these lines, lotions are other topical solutions can’t reverse the damage once it is done. “I find that it is wrinkles around the eyes that bring people to my office for the first time. This is usually the first area to show facial aging and yet it is a relatively easy area to improve with the use of injectable products.” says Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa.
Differences in Injectables for Wrinkles Around Eyes
Injectable products have become increasingly popular as they are both highly effective and versatile. There are two main types of injectables- those which freeze the weakened facial muscles, and those which fill in lines. Many times a combination of the two are used in what is known as a non-surgical facelift. Even though the procedure is quick and easy, it is extremely important to seek out a board-certified practitioner working in an accredited medical facility before receiving any treatment. Bad results are almost always due to having too much product injected into the face or having Botox or dermal fillers injected into the wrong place. This is more likely to happen if you get injections outside of a doctor’s office or in a non-accredited facility such as a hair salon or at a “Botox party”.
According to Dr. Dominic of Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, “injectables are highly effective for reducing facial wrinkles but there is an art to administering the products in order to get the best and most natural results.” Elite Facial Plastic Surgery uses only the top quality products and the board-certified medical specialists are all well- trained in how to inject dermal fillers.
