With the passage of time, our eyes look sad or even permanently disapproving. The eyelids lower and the end of the eyebrow is not at the same point as always, and dark circles under the eyes are not the result of insufficient sleep. And it is in our eyes that the signs of aging are first visible and with which we reach a presence of sadness that does not affect our mood. Before any treatment, it is always essential to know the facial musculature and its functions to achieve an aesthetic and harmonious result.
In cases in which the patient has an expression of anger caused by excessive contraction of the muscles over the head of the eyebrow and the back of the nose, Dr. Dr. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. S. Santana applies the most common treatment in these cases: botulinum toxin. Sometimes this is alternated with hyaluronic acid filler when wrinkles are very marked or deep. To alleviate fatigue and sagging of the various structures in this area we can apply resorbable fillers such as hyaluronic acid. This component is found naturally in our body and is combined with botulinum toxin.
Cases in which the eyelids take on a sad appearance are caused by a decay of the skin tissue that accumulates on the eyelid. In this case a deep study of the different anatomical structures that form the eyelids is performed. In this way, the patient has a more exclusive and natural result and a personalized treatment to the maximum. The idea is to observe if the patient is going to be a candidate for the technique, since we combine upper eyelid filler with hyaluronic acid or the use of PDO (polydeoxanone) threads combined with botulinum toxin.
Another sign of aging is the drooping of the tail of the eyebrow. At Clínica Santana they use hyaluronic acid to replace the volume lost in these areas, just above the eyebrow on the temporal ridge (temple) and in the eye contour. This technique is combined with botulinum toxin to loosen the arch of the eyebrow and prevent this area from descending. The PDO threads placed are used to repair the high eyebrow.
For the diffusion of dark circles there are different options to treat it. After a thorough study of the anatomical area, the patient’s real problem is observed. If the disadvantage is the coloration of the same, we use a combination of specific peelings for the area together with a special mesotherapy to fix the coloration of the same and together with collagen. In this way we obtain an illumination effect of the eyes by reducing pigmentation.
On the other hand, if the problem to be treated is deep dark circles under the eyes, then Dr. Santana provides deep hyaluronic acid specific for dark circles under the eyes. Thanks to its low hygroscopic power, it prevents the appearance of unwanted effects.
