Banish Dark Circles with Manhattan Facial Plastic Surgery
The eye area is usually the first casualty of aging. Particularly thin and delicate, the skin around our eyes is easily damaged by UV rays and free radicals.
It doesn’t take long for skin structure in the eye area to start breaking down and begin showing signs of aging. Dark circles, crow’s feet and bags under the eyes are not uncommon among women and men in their 20s and 30s. Dark circles and baggy eyes can make you look old and tired even when you’re still young and energetic. And it gets worse with age! Fortunately, whether you’re in your 20s or several decades past that, there are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can quickly repair eye damage with virtually no down time. A session or two with an expert Manhattan facial plastic surgeon can banish signs of aging around your eyes and restore your appearance to one of youthful vigor.
Dark circles under the eyes are typically caused by the development of hollows under the eye from fat loss or the thinning of the skin that occurs as we age, shadows from baggy lower eyelids due to weight gain or the loss of skin elasticity caused by aging, or skin discoloration due to sun exposure or natural aging. Because of the delicacy and complexity of this area of the face and proximity to the eye itself, cosmetic treatments should only be performed by an experienced New York plastic surgeon with an expertise in facial plastic surgery.
- Hollows under the eye can be successfully treated with injectable skin fillers such as Restylane that gently plump up the skin in the tear trough directly under the eyelid.
- Baggy lower lids can be reduced by liposuction often in combination with eyelid surgery to remove excess fat and skin.
- Skin discoloration can be addressed with chemical peels and other non-invasive treatments.
