Eye Rejuvenation - What Your Eyes Say About You
Eye rejuvenation is important because your eyes are the window to your soul. They reveal a lot about your emotional well being and your general state of health. When your eyes are bright and alert you appear energized and when your eyes are red and puffy you appear fatigued. Early signs of aging are first observed around the eyes with the emergence of wrinkles around the eyes commonly referred to as crow's feet. In addition to aging, continuous fatigue causes your eyes to form "bags" under the lower eyelids. Many people also suffer from excess skin on the upper eyelids which hampers their peripheral vision causing difficulties with activities such as driving or reading.
What Eye rejuvenation can do for you.
Eye rejuvenation is a broad term that is used to refer to a number of procedures that can be performed to improve the appearance of your eyes. Eye rejuvenation can get rid of crow's feet, fat under the lower eye lids as well as improve the general appearance of your eyes giving you a more youthful and bright appearance. The procedures used in eye rejuvenation include:
• Botox® injections – Botox® is the trade name for a chemical compound known as botulinum. It was approved for cosmetic use by the US Food & Drug administration (FDA) in April 2002. Botox® injections work by blocking the nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Wrinkles are caused by muscle contractions as one grows older.
• Blepharoplasty - This is just a fancy medical term for eyelid surgery. The purpose of the surgery restore a youthful look by recreating the contour of the eyelids with regard to the eyebrows and cheeks.
• Thermage collagen Stimulation and Skin Tightening - Thermage is a cosmetic procedure that uses radio frequency energy to heat the underlying layers of the skin triggering a healing process whereby skin collagen is stimulated. The stimulated collagen grows and the result is tighter, firmer, youthful looking skin.
So to restore that youthful look, you may want to consider eye rejuvenation.
