Lines around the eyes give a variety of emotional expressions, most of which convey a negative impression.
These lines, known as “Crow's Feet”, are the result of normal but excessive muscle action of the underlying sphincter muscle of the eye and produce wrinkles that radiate outward in a 'sunray' effect. Elimination or softening of these lines is a frequently requested procedure. Botox alone is a great treatment for young patients given its prophylactic effects. While this request is simple, in the older population, adequately treating crow's feet often requires combining Botox with a rejuvenating treatment such as Laser Genesis and/or Carboxytherapy to obtain optimal results. With most rejuvenating treatments, a good long-term result is only possible if the underlying muscle action is controlled with Botox & Dysport.
Since the eyelids and the surrounding skin is quite thin, it is an area that is particularly responsive to Laser Genesis™ resurfacing which uses a light to moderate depth laser with no downtime. The crow's feet area is pre-treated with Botox followed by Laser Genesis™ Rejuvenation two weeks later.
Botox/ Dysport combined with Carboxytherapy treatments around the eye area performed two weeks later is also producing great long term eye rejuvenating results. Eight out of ten patients get a noticeable improvement in skin laxity around the eyes after the first two treatments.
However, for patients that are apprehensive about the effects of Botox®, there are new technologies such as Carboxytherapy. With Carboxytherapy the prospects of a more open expression in the eye and brow area are now possible and ageing around the eye area such as crow's feet, dark circles, eye bags and crêpey skin can be improved on, especially if Carboxytherapy treatments are initiated early on in the ageing process.
At Body Renewal, we offer traditional topical home therapies such as AHA s, PHAs, Retinol and Home Needling Devices, to improve eye wrinkles. Once the signs of ageing appear around the eyes and this occurs in the late twenties, it is time to initiate the most powerful corrective treatments and topical therapies available such as growth factors (found in Dermaheal by Lamelle and TNS Essential Serum and TNS Recovery Complex by Skin Medica) to improve collagen content and production, thereby improving the wrinkles. These highly active growth factor products, are intended to be used in conjunction with a robust in-office programme such as Laser Genesis for peri-orbital rejuvenation. Used in conjunction this is the most effective non-surgical home weapon available.
In office treatments provide the quickest and most effective route to brightening up a prematurely aged skin with eye wrinkles and a dull complexion. At Skin and Body Renewal we offer cutting edge technologies such as transdermal mesotherapy treatments, Medical Needling, Pearl™ and Pearl Fractional laser rejuvenation, Titan, Laser Genesis™ and Carboxytherapy to instantly freshen up the eye area. As each patient's case is different we will tailor a treatment program specifically for you and your circumstances especially budget. A highly professional team led by a medical doctor assesses every patient and an appropriate combination treatment together with long term maintenance program is recommended.
Body Renewal Tip
Unfortunately a stunning "Hollywood" face and skin has not been handed out by nature - it has to be bought and this usually comes at an expensive price. At Body Renewal we have recognized this problem and have come up with a solution to make it more affordable for the average person. As best results are seen with between 2 to 6 treatments every client is provided with a fully customised yearlong solution dependent on budget and expectations. The treatments have prolonged effects and can be administered monthly, or over a period of time until the desired result is achieved. The effect of each treatment is accumulative with best results down the line.
