We all want to look our best, and in the last decade, we have seen a significant increase in the number of people seeking cosmetic services to enhance their appearance. With our eyes being our most distinguishing feature, we want to make the most of them! Thankfully, a range of cosmetic services now exists that can help to rejuvenate our eyes and the area around them to keep them fresh, young, and wrinkle-free:
Brown pigment spots that develop on the face are often referred to as age spots and result from sun exposure. Repeated exposure to UV rays causes melanin, a compound responsible for skin pigmentation and protection, to clump together to form an area of hyperpigmentation. While age spots aren’t any cause for medical concern, many people feel that they look unsightly. Luckily, several treatments exist to remove them, including topical creams, laser therapy, and chemical peels.
If you are suffering from areas of uneven pigmentation, we strongly recommend that you make an appointment with a qualified dermatologist who will recommend the best course of treatment for you based on your specific needs.
As we age, the skin around our eyes loses much of its elasticity, making it very common to develop sagging eyelids. This effect is often much more extensive in smokers and in those who have had excessive sun exposure.
Eyelid reduction surgery, known as blepharoplasty, is a very common aesthetic procedure that can give the face a much more youthful appearance and involves the removal of the excess skin and fatty tissue and the tightening of the relaxed muscles. It can be applied to your upper eyelids (known as upper blepharoplasty), lower eyelids (lower blepharoplasty), or both.
If eyelid reduction is something that interests you, then ask your optometrist if they can suggest a professional and experienced cosmetic surgeon who will be able to answer your questions and assess whether you are a viable candidate for surgery.
Your eyebrows are an important facial feature that provides structure to your face. Their close proximity to your eyes means that they are also one of the first things people notice about you. Unfortunately, despite plucking, threading, or waxing to get them a perfect shape, many of us find that we are left with stubborn unwanted hair that sits between our brows to create the infamous ‘monobrow’ ... and let’s face it, the monobrow is never going to be in style!
Both men and women experience this embarrassing cosmetic fail, but you no longer have to! Laser hair removal is a quick, simple, and relatively painless procedure that can completely remove the hair between your eyebrows.
Banish that monobrow for good and ask around for a personal recommendation for an excellent cosmetic laser hair removal business. There is probably one closer than you think!
