Eye Rejuvenation

For a brighter, more youthful look

Eye rejuvenation incorporates advanced, sophisticated treatments that demand a high level of specialised skill and expertise to be effective. As we use our eyes for all kinds of expressions, wrinkles and lines form over time. The ageing process can also lead to hollows, bags and shadows all leading to a tired, aged appearance.

Our comprehensive approach to eye rejuvenation assesses all elements of ageing rather than simply targeting lines and wrinkles. There are various reasons for under-eye ageing, such as loosening of the skin, protrusion of under-eye fat pads, weakening of soft tissue structures around the eyes, bone loss and a tear trough deformity. Dr Nicole will discuss the most appropriate course of treatment based on the underlying problem, and this can incorporate anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers for tear trough deformities, micro-needling, chemical peels, skin care products and/or device-based procedures.

Dr Nicole is committed to achieving natural-looking results and giving honest opinions on treatments that are apporpriate for your look.

Eye-opening results

Eyes are your most important feature and say so much about you, so we understand how important it is to devise the ideal treatment plan. Dr Nicole will take the time to carry out an extensive eye assessment to determine your concerns and the causes behind them. Medical disorders, allergies and lifestyle factors can contribute to concerns around the eye area, so all these facotrs will be taken into account at consultation.

We can restore a more youthful look and boost confidence by targeting the following:

Crow’s feet – these fine lines and wrinkles (also known as laughter lines) deepen as we grow older and may become visible even when the face is relaxed. Anti-wrinkle injections can soften these lines.

Drooping, ageing brow area – as we grow older, eyebrows can often flatten and drift downwards losing their youthful arch. Dr Nicole uses anti-wrinkle injections to lift and define the brow while maintaining eyebrow movement.

Thin, wrinkled skin – this common problem can be targeted with effective specialist skin care products, micro-needling and chemical peels.

Tear troughs, eye bags and shadows – the under-eye area is often neglected in cosmetic treatments as it requires advanced, highly-skilled techniques. Dr Nicole will devise an individualised treatment plan for you based on your needs following your assessment, but the following are some important points in relation to eye rejuvenation:

  • Tear troughs are created over time as ligaments, fat and skin deflate and move downwards below the eye. Dr Nicole will define the extent of the hollowness to determine the amount of filler needed for natural-looking results. Taking into account medical factors such as underactive thyroid conditions and allergies is extremely important as clients with these conditions tend to experience more swelling after dermal filler treatments
  • Dark circles and hyperpigmentation can be caused by a number of factors. These include high levels of natural pigmentation, sun damage, hormonal changes and allergic reactions. Dr Nicole will advise on which treatment options are most appropriate to achieve the desired results. It is important to note that while dermal fillers are highly effective at improving shadowing and may improve dark circles, they cannot change pigmentation in the skin.

Dr Nicole will devise an individual treatment plan during your consultation. The consultation provides the opportunity to assess your skin, listen to your needs and talk through the various treatment options in detail. You will have the chance to ask questions and voice any concerns – we will always provide professional, honest and comprehensive answers.

The importance of aftercare

Whatever your concerns and issues, all eye rejuvenation treatments are followed by careful, consistent aftercare. You can prolong the effects of your treatment by enhancing your skin care regime. Dr Nicole will talk through this during your consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Eye Rejuvenation at Dr Nicole Dermatology
    • Which products are used to treat crow’s feet and create eyebrow lift?

      Both of these concerns/areas are treated with anti-wrinkle injections. Anti-wrinkle injections is prepared from botulinum into a purified form. It relaxes facial muscles and reduces muscle contraction by temporarily blocking their nerve impulses. Dr Nicole uses highly-targeted injections to create natural-looking results in the specific areas around the eyes.

    • Is the treatment pain free?

      Discomfort is usually minor, but this can vary from person to person and depends on the area treated. Dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic to reduce pain and we can also apply a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) to improve your comfort.

    • How long does the treatment take?

      This can vary from one person to the next as individual metabolism affects the length of results. For crow’s feet and eyebrow lifts, results usually last from 3 to 4 months. Generally speaking, the fillers we use last around 12 months for eye bags and tear troughs.

    • What results can I expect?

      Dermal fillers usually give immediate results following the procedure, while anti-wrinkle injections can take up to 14 days to reach its full effect. Chemical peels and skin care products may take a few weeks to months to see the final results. Overall, the results will depend on your individual requirements and will be discussed fully during the consultation. We always aim to use these treatments to enhance your natural features, giving natural-looking results.

    • How long do the results last?

      This can vary from one person to the next as individual metabolism affects the length of results. For crow’s feet and eyebrow lifts, results usually last from 3 to 4 months. Generally speaking, the fillers we use last around 12 months for eye bags and tear troughs.

    • What about aftercare?

      We are committed to providing the very best aftercare for great results. We will go through everything in detail before your treatment. Any swelling, redness or minor bruising will usually subside soon after the treatment.

      For filler-based treatments, avoid sun beds, saunas, steam rooms and extreme temperatures until any redness or swelling subsides. It is also important not to wear make-up for a minimum of 2 hours after your treatment. For anti-wrinkle injections-based treatments, do not rub the treated areas for the first 2 hours. You will need to avoid sunbeds, saunas, steam rooms, extreme temperatures and alcohol for 48 hours post-treatment. Detailed information on aftercare will be given at the consultation.

    • Are dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections safe?

      Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are relatively safe treatments and millions of procedures have been carried out. Complications are uncommon and serious reactions are very rare. It is important to ensure that treatment is done by a fully-qualified professional with an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and experience to minimise the risk of complications. A full discussion of the potential risks will be carried out at consultation, before any procedure is undertaken.

    • Which products are used to treat the under-eye area?

      Eye bags, hollows and shadows are usually treated with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (which is naturally present in our skin) in a smooth gel. We use a specific hyaluronic acid filler for the delicate under-eye area that is most appropriate for this purpose. The filler is expertly injected to replace lost volume, diminish eye bags and smoothen lines and wrinkles.

      Dark circles, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles under the eyes can be treated with chemical peels and specialist skin care products. Detailed discussion on the type of products suitable for your skin type will be carried out at your consultation.
