Eye Rejuvenation

As you age the skin surrounding your eyes undergoes noticeable changes. It becomes thinner and more wrinkled, and texture and pigmentation alter. Additionally, sagging of the skin in this area is common. These changes collectively contribute to an appearance that can look tired, as if one is sleep-deprived or exhausted.

The area from the bottom of the eye to the cheek is smooth in youth. With age, your fat pads around the eye begin to lose volume and settle into the eye sockets, giving the eyes a sunken look. Your lower lids loosen, bags develop under your  eyes, and tear troughs deepen. Weakened eye muscles allow the eyelids to droop.

Dark circles under the eye make you appear tired and add years to your appearance. The blood vessels under thinning skin become more obvious and cause discoloration and dark circles.

Thinning translucent skin is the result of lost collagen and elastin, and lax undereye muscles reveal fat pads that bulge under the eyes, causing bags.

Aging eyes, fine lines, wrinkles on the skin around the eyes, crow’s feet, sagging eyelids, and frown lines between the eyes can make you look older than your actual age.

Dermal Fillers

  • Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel that can be injected into the periorbital space under the eyes to temporarily fill undereye hollows, instantly reversing signs of aging. The effect is a soft and natural lift and brightening of undereye discolorations. Results are instant, and effects last 6-12 months.
  • Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel. Belotero can be placed very close to the surface for the treatment of ultra-fine lines to treat the fixed smile lines around the eyes. The effect of Belotero lasts 3-6 months.
  • RHA® (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) dermal fillers are designed for facial movements and expressions and represent the latest hyaluronic acid (HA) technology advancement. RHA 2 is a highly resilient, stretchy formula ideal for moderate wrinkles, such as thoughs surrounding the eyes.
  • Redensity® is a new dermal filler made to hydrate, rejuvenate, and provide radiance using a unique formula of REDENSITY® 1, amix of highly concentrated high molecular weight HA and other essential skin nutrients. 


BOTOX® is a neuromodulator, a substance than affects the communication between the nerves and muscles, isinjected to relax the muscles that create dynamic wrinkles that form with expression. It is commonly used to smooth the forehead, the area between the eyes (angry 11s), and around the eyes (crow’s feet) by temporarily paralyzing the muscle movements that cause the wrinkles to form. The results are softened wrinkles and lines and a subtle lift of the eyebrows, which lifts the upper eyelids.

BOTOX® can be used to create a brow lift, which can smooth out wrinkles on upper eyelids. In the hands of a skilled injector like board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michelle Pennie effects are visible within 5-7 days and last about 4-6 months.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses radiofrequency energy delivered through tiny needles to promote collagen and elastin production for firmer, more youthful skin. RF microneedling can treat the delicate skin around your eyes, including the eyelids and crow’s feet, to smooth, tighten, and treat thin transparent skin and dark circles. It is quick and convenient with no downtime but may require several treatments to achieve desired results.

CUTERA Excel®V +

Cutera Excel® V + laser a is a skin revitalizing and resurfacing treatment for pigmented and vascular lesions. It can treat red and blue blood vessels under and around the eye. The laser delivers pulses of light energy absorbed by abnormal blood vessels on the skin, which heat the blood vessels, causing the vein walls to collapse. After treatment, there may be some bruising and swelling, but often, results are immediately visible. Over time, the body absorbs the damaged blood vessels, and blood flow is redirected to deeper veins. Maintenance treatments may be necessary. It is safe and effective for all skin types and tones.

Tetra CO2 Laser with CoolPeel

The Tetra CO2 laser is a modern, advanced type of carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. It functions as an ablative laser, meaning it removes the outer layers of the skin, leading to skin rejuvenation. The Tetra CO2 laser represents a significant advancement in laser technology, offering effective and customizable skin treatments with the potential for reduced recovery time compared to traditional CO2 lasers.

Eye rejuvenation can restore radiant, youthful freshness to your whole appearance.
