Have Your Eyelids Been Looking Tired?
All the past years of squinting into the hot Tulsa sun can leave your eyes looking aged or tired. On top of gravity’s inevitable pull, the combined effects of sun damage and constant squinting could cause common problems such as loosened eyelid skin, puffy bags, and crow’s feet or frown lines. To help rejuvenate your eyes for all the upcoming summer events and photo ops, Dr. Cuzalina can help personalize your eyelid enhancement with both surgical and non-surgical options.
Eyelid Refresh 1: Put an end to sagging eyelids and puffiness.
One of the most common problems men and women both experience with their eyes as they get older is sagging or drooping of the upper eyelids and puffiness beneath the eyes caused by excess skin or fat. Not only does this dramatically age your appearance or cause you to look drowsy even after a good nights’ sleep, but some may even experience some vision blockage due to the drooping skin. If you find yourself looking older or tired in that latest photo, a personalized blepharoplasty procedure with Dr. Cuzalina may be the way to refresh your eyes.
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that can be performed for the upper and/or lower eyelids. By reducing excess skin or fat, Dr. Cuzalina can help minimize sagging of the eyelids and reduce lower eyelid puffiness. This popular facial cosmetic surgery can help take years off your appearance so you can smile bright with a lively look this summer.
Eyelid Refresh 2: Smooth away crow’s feet and frown lines.
The constant squinting because of the bright sun does no good for your skin. These repeated muscle contractions will eventually begin to form lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes, and frown lines between the eyebrows. One effective way to help prevent this problem is to wear your sunglasses! Not only will you look good and stylish, but the added protection helps keep the damaging UV rays out of your eyes and prevents squinting to hold the lines and wrinkles at bay.
If the crow’s feet or frown lines have already set in, Dr. Cuzalina recommends Botox® injections for his Tulsa patients. This non-surgical injectable treatment continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country. Using botulinum toxin, Botox helps to relax the underlying facial muscles to smooth the skin’s surface and prevent the formation of new dynamic wrinkles. Best of all, Botox does all of this with little to no downtime so you can continue to enjoy doing the things you love.
