It is universally accepted that as we age, we lose volume from the fat pockets of our face. skin becomes laxed and wrinkled. The hollowing or depressions are mostly evident under the eye, mid-cheek, temples and in the areas where folds are formed such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines and prejowl areas. Restoration of volume in these areas has a rejuvenating effect on the face. Skin laxity can also be caused by several heritable connective tissue disorders. In the ageing skin, acquired skin laxity seems to be a result of the combination of intrinsic and extrinsic processes. A major extrinsic factor is an ultraviolet radiation (UVR), which can be potentiated by smoking. No one likes to see a black half moon (dark circle) under the eyes. Everyone suffers from the problem of dark circles at some point in time. However, some people suffer from it every now and then. There are many misconceptions about dark circles; one of it is that dark circles appear due to stress and disappear after stress reduces. Dark circles actually appear due to leak in capillaries. More and more people are turning to cosmetic doctors for rejuvenation techniques, to help their face reflect the way they feel inside. BOTOX® (Botulinum) treatment, fillers, skin tightening and lifting and dark circle reduction, are some of the rejuvenation techniques.
Botulinum Toxin is a protein derived from the toxin secreted by Botulinum bacteria. It is popularly used for reducing and removing the wrinkles or fine lines of the face. It acts by paralyzing the superficial muscles under the skin, which are responsible for the wrinkles. When the muscle does not contract, wrinkles do not appear and skin does not thin. Thus Botulinum Toxin not only works therapeutically to treat early signs of ageing but also helps in prevention.
Fillers as the name suggests, are injectables that replace volume, where volume is lost. Fillers can be synthetic or natural. A natural filler is our own body fat. A synthetic filler is a Hyaluronic acid.
Monopolar radiofrequency is one of the modes in which radiofrequency can be used in medicine and cosmetics to treat skin laxity.
Chemical peels and laser are some of the treatment options available for dark eye circles.
