Eyes And Under Eyes Sherman Oaks
Our faces naturally lose volume as we age often causing dark hollow areas such as those underneath the eyes. Adding volume back where it has been lost brightens up the under eye appearance and restores a youthful-looking vibrancy to the face. It is crucial that anyone seeking dermal filler treatment for dark under eye circles goes to an experienced injector. The skin under the eyes is very thin and an expert injector can ensure natural looking results with increased safety.
Inner Eye Crinkling
This is an area that we don’t usually see because we don’t take photos with our eyes squinting or closed. However, with repetitive movement, these lines do etch into the skin and should be prevented. With small units of botox, the squint muscles can be relaxed to give a smoother transition from eyelid to nasal region
Botox injections are one of the most common types of outpatient procedures for crow’s feet. These facial wrinkles are the fan-like formations that develop near the outside corners of your eyes. Botox can relax the muscles in this area to decrease the crinkling of the skin.
Under Eye Lines
These lines are produced by three forces: pinching from the crows feet muscle, pinching from the inner eye muscle, and the pushing up of the cheeks when we smile. While we cannot reduce the movement of the cheeks, relaxing the pinching muscles can help decrease the undereye lines.
Under Eye Hollowing
Fillers in this area can decrease the tired and angry look. It decreases the shadows that are present when the cheek fat pads diminish or move down and leave an indentation. This appearance is exaggerated under harsh light from above, which is common at night events.
Eye Size and Shape
Eye Size Shrinking
Another change on the face with age is a shrinking eye size. Botox can be used around the eyes to open it back up!
Downward Slanting of Eyes
Due to multiple factors (bone restructuring, loss of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, muscle atrophy, and fat atrophy), the outside of our eyes slowly shift as we get older. While we can use makeup (eyeshadow and eyeliners) to lift the outer corner of the eyes, fillers and Botox can also be used to enhance the re-lifting of the eyes. Our injectors can devise a plan unique to your face to accomplish this goal non-invasively. View our eyes and under eyes before and after photos here.
