There are several different ways to approach treating wrinkles around the eyes; the best choice depends on the source of the damage to your skin. Most signs of facial aging are caused by the fact that your body stops producing enough of the collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other components needed to maintain a stable skin structure. Fillers act in place of these structure elements, while restructuring gels help restart your body's natural production. If the wrinkles are caused by underlying muscle contractions, toxins can also be used to numb and smooth the area.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a filler that is specially designed to work on fine, etched-in lines. This makes it a perfect choice for handling the soft crow's feet that can appear around your eyes. BELOTERO® works quickly and feels natural. The results of BELOTERO® last for six months; after this time, you'll need to get another injection.
BOTOX® is a toxin that is used to numb the muscles directly underneath your skin. By preventing extreme facial contortions, toxins can reduce and even prevent excessive wrinkling. BOTOX® has been around for decades and is an industry-standard product with well-understood effects. This makes it one of the safest and most reliable choices for a toxin, especially if you plan to use it near your eyes.
Dysport® is a toxin that has been carefully designed to work on the area around the brows. This can make it a good choice for certain wrinkles and folds adjacent to the eyes. Dysport® is highly effective at treating deep furrows, but it is not nearly as successful at erasing finer, etched-in lines. Because toxins should be used sparingly around the eyes, you should expect your specialist to recommend Dysport® when they need to correct an outstanding feature that is bothering you.
Restylane® is a filler that also acts as a restructuring gel. Restylane® is made from hyaluronic acid. Over time, this acid breaks down and is absorbed by your skin. Restylane® products are available to treat wrinkles across the face. This treatment is fast-acting and surprisingly natural.
