Younger Looking Eyes for a More Beautiful You
Younger looking eyes are what everyone wants. The winter months often give us more time than we would want to fixate on how we’re aging. Perhaps you’re noticing the wrinkles that are starting to form around your mouth or maybe even that your face has begun to lose the volume that it once had when you were in your 20s. One of the most common areas that our patients begin to notice the true test of time is their eyes.
“The eyes really are a key to a person’s youthful appearance, beauty and vitality,” says Dr. Ali Adibfar, the medical director at one of Toronto’s best medical spas. “There are many factors that impact how the area around your eye ages. This includes the facial structure, genetics, sun damage and the types of skin care products used.”
We all age differently. It’s what makes us unique. And while we wall want younger looking eyes, fine lines, wrinkles, discolouration, sagging skin, drooping eyelids and “tired” under-eye baggage are not part of anyone’s “aging gracefully” plan. You may be looking in the mirror and wondering how this has happened. These common side effects of aging can make us feel old, tired and less than beautiful.
“While wrinkles, lines and drooping eyelids can have a significant impact on a person’s beauty and confidence, there are ways to eliminate these telltale signs of aging,” explains Dr. Adibfar, a leading Toronto plastic surgeon.
Regardless of your age or what stage of the eye aging process you’re in, let’s explore the ways you can make your eyes look beautiful, youthful and bright.
1. The beginning
What you’re seeing: You’re just beginning to see the evidence of aging around your eyes.
Elimination difficulty: Simple
What you can do for younger looking eyes: While it may be taking a toll on your emotions, don’t fret. There is a simple fix if you’re just starting to see the evidence of aging around your eyes. “We recommend investing in a high-quality eye cream,” says Dr. Adibfar. “But it’s important to select the right one and we can help ensure you’re making the right investment.”
You’ll need to select a product that encourages your skin to naturally produce hyaluronic acid. This can help minimize dark circles, reduce puffiness and prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming. “There are many skin and eye products out there that promise amazing results. But they aren’t all created equal,” said Dr. Adibfar, a top plastic surgeon in Toronto. “Speaking with your trusted, board-certified plastic surgeon is the first step you need to take. They’ll help you select a product that is best suited to deliver great results in the safest manner.”
What you’re seeing: More lines, wrinkles and loss of volume.
Elimination difficulty: Simple to moderate
What you can do for younger looking eyes: While you might be saying to yourself; “what is going on? I look 15 years older than I actually am!“, there are fairly simple treatments that can redefine your beauty and shave years off your appearance. “There are many non-invasive plastic surgery treatments available to you that can deliver incredible results,” explains Dr. Adibfar. “From carefully placed Botox and fillers to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags to chemical peels, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and laser rejuvenation to tighten the areas around your eyes, we offer highly effective procedures that can meet your specific needs.”
These non-invasive procedures deliver incredible results with minimal downtime. While you may be looking in the mirror thinking you’ll never get those youthful looking eyes back; think again. Speak with a trusted, Toronto plastic surgeon about which non-invasive procedures are available to you. Our team spends a considerable amount of time during the consultative phase to review each patient’s body, needs and expected results. From there we can select the perfect plastic surgery procedure to address the specific aging effects around the eyes.
3. A little more advanced
What you’re seeing: You’re noticing sagging eyelids, hooded upper eyelids, deeper lines, hallowed eyes and dark circles.
Elimination difficulty: Moderate
What you can do for younger looking eyes: Do you look in the mirror and think it’s time to throw in the towel? Are you at a point where you’re ready to say time has won? Do you feel like there’s nothing else you can do to regain those youthful eyes that made you feel energized and beautiful? Well, we’re here to tell you there’s still hope.
“Men and women who are experiencing drooping eyelids, deep lines and sagging brow lines may feel like it’s too late,” says Dr. Ali Adibfar. “However, there are several plastic surgery procedures that can reverse these signs of aging and give you back your youthful appearance.”
Depending on your specific needs and expectations, we may recommend a facelift, eyelid surgery or brow lift procedure. These procedures may also be combined with fillers and Botox to create a beautifully natural and youthful appearance. Our team of plastic surgery specialists will take the time to identify the best procedure for your body.
