Facial Aging & Areas of Concern

Your eyes and the areas around your forehead are the most important aspects of your appearance and often are the first areas to show signs of facial aging. Further, these areas can communicate your mood, demeanor and energy level to others. As we age, it is common for the soft fatty tissue beneath the eyebrows to shrink, allowing the eyebrows to become droopy. This is often accompanied by the skin and soft tissue around your upper and lower eyelids stretching and further creating drooping or sagging of the eyelids. For some people this is made even more undesirable by orbital fat protruding through the lower eyelid resulting in “puffy bags” or dark circles on the lower eyelids. Others find that tissue volume around the eyes decreases to give the appearance of “hollowness.” These facial aging changes can occur as early as your twenties to early thirties and can become quite obvious in your forties, fifties and sixties.

If your eyes and forehead project the signs of aging due to overhanging skin and puffiness, dark circles under your eyes, crow’s feet, lines and wrinkles around your eyes or forehead, you may appear tired, older, less energetic and even sad or angry. This can be a problem in social or business settings. Conversely, if your eyes are more open and relatively free of creases and folds, you will probably seem more rested and youthful. If your forehead shows signs of worry and stress, this too can make you appear fatigued. For these reasons, men and women of all ages, lifestyles and social groups, as well as those wishing to look ready, willing and able to perform well in the business setting, are interested in both surgical and non-surgical treatments for all types of facial changes.
