More often than not, our eyes have the power to communicate more than the words we speak. We gently rub the curtain of sleep away from their corners, ready to see the day. We squint as the low Autumn sun makes a break for the clouds, and we furrow as we face frustration. Our eyebrows raise as we’re surprised by an old friend, and our eyes turn in happiness as we smile. Sometimes, they give away what we try so hard to disguise, and reveal our emotional secrets. They’re the objects of glances when our acquaintances greet us, and they’re the constant jewels our loved ones search when they get even half a chance. Whether they’re sparkling and bright with joy, or suffering their own downpours in sadness, our eyes say more about who we are to the world around us than any other part of our body.
After years of emotion – the delight, the frustrations, the pride and the heartbreak – it seems hard to believe eyes that have seen such an array of life’s rainbow could ever look so dull, tired and aged.
To reverse the signs of aging, you might be considering drastic invasive treatments to regain some of your confidence and youth. If targeted moisturisers and topical serums are superfluous in your battle against fine lines, pigmented dark circles and puffy undereyes, injectable Botox treatments aren’t your only option. In fact, you might find that the benefits of laser eye rejuvenation outweigh the limited positives of Botox entirely.
Whereas Botox is an invasive injectable treatment, lasers are non-invasive. Botox treats wrinkles and fine lines by inputting Botulinum toxin into your muscles, to prevent their natural movement. Botox temporarily relaxes targeted muscles underneath skin that is prone to ‘dynamic’ wrinkles (wrinkles that occur due to repetitive movement of the muscle below). Although results from Botox appear relatively quickly, the effects last only between three and six months.
On the other hand, lasers are extremely versatile for skin treatments. To treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lasers stimulate your skin cells and trigger your natural healing processes to produce collagen to plump the skin, giving a tightening effect around problem areas. However, lasers don’t stop at correcting fine lines and the look of ‘crows feet’. They can be used to treat other signs of aging across the face, from enlarged pores; scars; brown spots; and the repairing of sun damage, leaving your whole look far more youthful and toned. The effects of laser treatments may not be immediately visible, but occur gradually as your natural healing processes take control, and the results last for up to two years.
Since your eyes are a very sensitive area, we can understand your apprehension to undergo any kind of cosmetic treatment around the area. While the thought of laser treatment around the eye may be a little uncomfortable, Botox has its own dangers so close to the optic nerves. Incidents have been reported of eyebrows and eyelids drooping in front of the eye, obstructing the client’s vision. More concerning, the depth Botox reaches is not always precisely monitored, and it has been reported to paralyse the optic nerves causing lasting damage to eyesight and movement, if incorrectly placed.
With laser treatment, the process itself is extremely safe. We go above and beyond to prevent damage to the area surrounding the eye, and the eye itself. The eyes are securely covered with metal shields, that are specifically chosen depending on the treatment we are giving to provide optimum comfort and protection. Since lasers work directly on layers of the skin, they do not input any harmful or otherwise invasive substances, only promoting your body’s natural production of positive, rejuvenating cells.
By opting for laser eye rejuvenation rather than Botox treatments, you’re choosing a less invasive, more natural reversing of time, rather than temporarily relaxing those fine lines. Rather than working against your body and preventing the movement of your muscles, get in touch to prompt your natural age recovery.
