Eye Enhancement Tips

Your eyes are one of the key focal points of your entire facial structure. Having big, plump, vibrant eyes just makes you seem more alluring and attractive. Even if you have nice eyes, their attractiveness can be impeded if you have loose, sagging skin on or surrounding the eyelids. You can take steps at home to make your eyes “pop” without cosmetic surgery. Your Redwood City experts at GLOW Surgical Arts, Dr. Paul Gorman and Dr. Renee Marshall, offer the following tips that can help enhance your eyes.

Get a quality concealer: If you have dark circles under your eyes, this can reduce the visible size of your eyes. The darker these circles might be, the smaller your eyes will appear. Some people may have these dark circles develop when they do not get enough sleep at night. For others, such dark circles can develop as a result of heredity. Your best defense against these dark circles is to invest in a high-quality concealing agent. Look for a shade that is just slightly warmer than your natural skin tone.

Get in your curls: Your eyelash curls, that is. One of the easiest at-home methods to make your eyes appear larger and more vibrant is to take a little bit of time and curl your eyelashes. Adding this small task to your daily routine will make a big difference.

Pencil precision: Few are born with a naturally appealing eye shape, but getting that classic almond-shaped eye is fairly easy; just put that eyeliner to work. It may take a little practice if you are not used to using it, but it can create that desired almond shape. Be sure to thicken the lines on the outer edge of the eyes and avoid making the middle area too wide.

How your cosmetic surgeon can help enhance your eye

People often choose to get professional help to achieve the look they want. Here are some of the ways that your expert Redwood City cosmetic surgeons at GLOW Surgical Arts can augment the appearance of your eyes.

Neuromodulators: Botox can be used to help with a variety of issues—including crow's feet, also known as wrinkles around the eyes. These folds can shrink the appearance of your eyes, as can frown lines between the eyebrows as well as forehead wrinkles. A Botox treatment can be administered in a matter of minutes, producing results that will last for usually three months. This eliminates wrinkles, smooths skin and makes your eyes appear younger and larger.

Eyelid surgery: Looking for a permanent solution to your dissatisfaction with the aesthetics of your eyes? Your Redwood City cosmetic surgeons at GLOW Surgical Arts can perform this procedure, which eliminates the appearance of bags under the eyes, as well as loose skin around the eyes. We also can perform an eye lift. Technically known as a blepharoplasty, this procedure removes any excess skin and deposits of fat that may have accumulated around the eyes as you age. The result will leave smooth skin around the eyes, and make your eyes look significantly bigger. Your cosmetic surgeon will work with you, explaining the pros and cons of each procedure. Together, you will decide which procedure is right for you.
