Ageing and tired eyes need special care. How to get their sparkle back?
As there are mimic muscles around your eyes and the skin on your lids is very thin, those “windows to your soul” are one of the first parts of the face that will show signs of ageing. The more candles on your birthday cake, the deeper the wrinkles around your eyes that were once negligible get. While your grandmas could do nothing but settle with that, the dermatology and plastic surgery nowadays offer several solutions.
Whether we squint because of the sun, laugh or frown, the mimic muscles around our eyes are still active. That’s why this part is so prone to the creation of wrinkles. The once surface signs get deeper and deeper. But even those can be smoothed using today’s technology.
The first refreshment to your tired skin can be filling your wrinkles with hyaluronic acid. It is a completely natural substance for your body the production of which decreases with years. Using a hyperbole, it can be said that this procedure can be done during your lunch break. The application of hyaluronic acid takes only 20 – 30 minutes and besides a slight reddening it will not limit you in your everyday activities. The effect of the treatment is visible in 3 to 6 months and then it can be repeated.
But hyaluronic acid is not the only natural substance that can be used for filling the wrinkles. Another option is one’s own fat. Lipofilling is a plastic-surgical method that not only reduces wrinkles but can also shape the face, e. g. the cheeks.. “The fat is applied using thin cannulas which helps to fill the wrinkles without any visible scars,” says MUDr. Ján Pilka from plastic and aesthetic surgery clinic Aesthevita. The subcutaneous fat for the face modelling is sucked out from the previously determined body part, most often from the abdomen.
In Aesthevita, a unique method Pure Graft is used for the transfer of the subcutaneous fat which is extraordinarily gentle during the transfer and purification so the fat does not get depreciated. Because fat is a natural substance for the body and we use more mimics in our face, a part of the applied amount of fat gets gradually absorbed. Therefore, it is desirable to repeat this one-hour long procedure after 3 to 6 months.
When stronger weapons join the fight
If the facial skin is loose too much, the wrinkles are very noticeable and deep, it is the right time to move on to a more effective solution. Facelift is a combination of several methods in one procedure. A perfect mix suitable for the specific client is set by a plastic surgeon during a pre-surgery consultation. He/she assesses the quality of the skin and both the patient and the surgeon discuss the desired and realistic outcome of the surgery.
Facelift is a complex solution and the aim of the surgeon is a visible result and a naturally looking tightened facial skin at the same time. You can choose among the application of your own fat,the eyelid surgery, the endoscopic forehead and brow lift and even the necklift.
Namely eyelid surgery is nowadays one of the most frequently performed procedures. Even men got to like it. Some of them also have sagging lids and it limits their vision and complicates lives. To get youthful bright eyes again, a great procedure is especially the mentioned endoscopic forehead and brow lift. It can be performed during a facelift or separately. It will smooth the wrinkles on your forehead and lift both the sagging forehead and eyelids. Your face can return a few years back in time. And they say the time machine doesn’t exist.
