As we get older, one of the first places we notice visible signs of aging is around our eyes. The delicate skin around the eyes is extremely thin and becomes even thinner as you age, with the most common changes including dark circles, ‘crow’s feet,’ and bags or swelling under or around the eyes.
Thankfully, there are now countless treatments available – surgical and non-surgical – to combat the signs of aging around the eyes. Below are a few of the treatments we offer and what each address so you can choose the procedure that’s right for you.
Youthful Reflection’s Surgical Eyelid Lift Options
Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
An upper eyelid blepharoplasty removes sagging skin, muscle, and protruding fat from the upper eyelids, restoring a natural, more youthful appearance to the eyes and can improve vision in cases with visual field obstruction. Upper blepharoplasty typically takes approximately 30 minutes and heals within 1-2 weeks with the incision hidden in the natural eyelid crease.
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
A lower eyelid blepharoplasty removes redundant skin, muscle, and protruding fat from the lower eyelids, restoring a natural, more youthful appearance to the eyes. Lower blepharoplasty typically takes 45 minutes and heals within 1-2 weeks with the incision on the outside of the eyelid, just below the lash line.
Youthful Reflection’s Non-Surgical Options
Youthful Reflections RENEW Procedure
The RENEW procedure includes Platelet Rich Plasma (or PRP) and microneedling as a regenerative therapy. The PRP procedure uses the patient’s own blood to help rejuvenate the areas injected to activate and induce the production of collagen and regeneration of new capillaries, adding volume to your skin and stimulating cells to reproduce.
Microneedling then creates tiny channels in the skin to stimulate healing for visibly tighter skin with improved skin texture and tone, and a clear reduction in pore size, fine lines and wrinkles for results that typically last 18-24 months.
Youthful Reflection Liquid Lift
The Youthful Reflections Liquid Lift is a procedure that includes a combination of Botox, dermal fillers, microneedling and PRP injections. The fillers provide instant volume with PRP injected above the filler. This multi-injection approach enhances the skin tone and texture while prolonging the longevity of the dermal filler for 3-6 months longer than when used alone for results that typically last 18-24 months.
