The eyes are known as the window to our soul, so many people want their eyes to look as youthful, alert, and welcoming as possible. As we age, the delicate skin around our eyes can sag and wrinkle, causing us to look tired. If you wish to rejuvenate your eyes without undergoing invasive surgery, BOYD offers a selection of non-invasive treatments that work to stimulate collagen around the eyes for a more youthful appearance.
Pellevé Skin Treatment
The Pellevé Skin Treatment combines radiofrequency energy with a facial to smooth and tighten the skin around your eyes. There are no needles, injections, or downtime involved, making this a popular choice for those on the go. Radiofrequency waves penetrate and heat the deep layers of the skin, causing collagen to contract while simultaneously stimulating new collagen production. Over the course of six months, patients should see their skin becoming smoother and tighter. Treatments once a month are recommended for optimal results.
Venus Freeze combines magnetic pulses and radiofrequency to tighten the under-eye area. Working to reduce fat pockets and contour sagging areas, this treatment feels like a warm massage, and triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastic fibers for youthful-looking skin. There is no anesthesia required, and treatment is virtually painless. Most patients can return to their daily routine immediately. Approximately six to eight treatments spaced a week apart are recommended for optimal results. You may then continue treatment as little as every 4 weeks to every 12 weeks maximum for upkeep.
Using ultrasound energy waves, Ultherapy penetrates the skin’s deepest layers, tightening sagging skin around the eyes while stimulating collagen production. Over a three-month period, the deepest layers of your skin will build new collagen, resulting in an overall tightening of the treatment area. Each treatment takes between 30 to 60 minutes. Following treatment, patients are free to go about their daily tasks as soon as they feel comfortable. It is recommended that patients receive treatments every six months to a year to maintain results.
Alternative Injectable Treatments
For patients who are experiencing under eye hollows, combining a non-invasive skin tightening treatment along with an injectable filler will completely transform your eyes for a more youthful appearance. Juvederm or Restylane® is a great option for the eye area. These fillers can add volume under the skin for immediate results and improvement. Botox® can also treat unwanted crow’s feet around the eyes for a smoother appearance. The skill of the injector is the most important thing when choosing an injectable treatment under the eyes. This is an extremely sensitive area and treatment must be safely administered by a skilled injector in order to maximize your anti-aging treatment with minimal discomfort or bruising. Dr. Boyd is an expert and extremely skilled in treating the sensitive eye and tear trough area.
