Best Anti-Aging Procedures for the Eyes & Brows

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and moisture, creating more wrinkles. Many patients find the areas around their eyes particularly prone to fine lines, especially if they?ve spent time peering at screens or out in the sun without protection. If you?ve suffered from years of too little sleep, you may also have developed dark spots under your eyes.

Luckily, there are several anti-aging procedures for the eyes and brows that can help you keep your face wrinkle-free and glowing with youth. At Phi Surgery, we are happy to help you find the best treatments for your skin type and dermatological issues. We offer surgical and non-surgical treatments, including fillers and facelifts. 

What Causes Wrinkles and Dark Circles?

Our skin produces collagen, which helps keep it  elastic. As we age, the amount of collagen we produce decreases. Every year after the age of 20, your skin will produce 1% less collagen , meaning your skin thins and becomes less stretchy, resulting in wrinkles. Exposure to UV rays and environmental pollutants can additionally cause your skin to age. 

Dark circles, a common sign of aging, appear as the skin thins and your fat layer disappears. As the fat layer thins, your blood vessels become more visible, creating the impression of dark patches. These dark bags can also show up after several days of sleep deprivation. 

At-home treatments to help prevent wrinkles and dark circles include taking vitamin C, getting enough sleep, and always wearing sunscreen, even if it?s cloudy out. However, if you have already developed some signs of aging, you may want to consider both our non-surgical and surgical treatments.

Non-Surgical Anti-Aging Treatments

Phi Surgery has a wide range of non-surgical treatments to help slow down and reverse the aging process. One of the more well-known treatments, Botox, is an excellent way to remove wrinkles and can also lift your brows. It keeps your face wrinkle-free for four to six months and you?ll see results several days after the treatment. However, Botox will only affect non-static wrinkles, which appear when your skin moves.

If you want to remove static wrinkles, you may want to consider fillers. We use several types of fillers, including Belotero, Juvederm, Revanesse, and Restylane to smooth out the skin where your wrinkles or crow?s feet are found. In some cases, we can use your own fat, which significantly reduces the possibility of a reaction to the filler. 

Fillers can also give you some more volume in your cheeks, which instantly gives you a youthful, rejuvenated look. We can also use them to lighten dark circles under your eyes by thickening the fat layer. You?ll see results instantly and they?ll last up to nine months. 

If you want to target your eyelids, we recommend Accutite. Using radio technology, we melt subcutaneous fat and tighten the skin around your eyes, decreasing lines, and eliminating droopy eyelids. 

Surgical Anti-Aging Treatments

There are also many surgical treatments that can give you a glowing appearance, ranging from simple procedures to more complicated surgeries. 

  • Facelift

Many people think of a facelift as something for the entire face, but we als o offer targeted procedures. Dr. Gladevitch is board-certified and experienced in this delicate surgery.

Your facelift options include the brow area, the midface, and the lower face and neck areas. Any combination of the areas can be targeted during the facelift procedure, depending on your skin and facial structure. 

If your brows have fallen due to aging, the brow lift can lift them back up to give your face a makeover. This can also help decrease the number of wrinkles around your eyes and forehead.  A midface lift focuses on plumping up your cheeks by replacing the fat layer. 

A facelift procedure takes about four hours while you?re under sedation. You?ll need around two weeks to recover and you?ll see the final results in three months. Unlike fillers, the results of a facelift can last for years. Although you will continue to age, it will slow down the process and reduce future wrinkles? frequency and depth.

  • Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that can be performed on both your upper and lower lids. As you age, your eyelids can become droopy. The muscle that controls your upper lid may loosen, resulting in a condition called ptosis . This condition can also interfere with your vision if pronounced.

The upper lid blepharoplasty procedure is simple and often doesn?t require sedation. You?ll recover in about three weeks? time. 

As we age, sometimes fat pools in the lower lid, causing an unattractive bulge. The lower lid can also loosen, showing more of the whites of your eyes. Lower lid blepharoplasty fixes this by correcting the muscle. This procedure will likely require sedation but still only entails about three weeks of recovery time. 

Both lid surgeries can be combined with a facelift procedure for a complete facial makeover.

  • Other Procedures

At Phi Surgery, we also offer rhinoplasty , liposuction, breast reduction or augmentation, and many other treatments to help you be the best you. We believe that everyone?s outside should reflect their internal beauty and we want to help make that possible.
