Eye Bag Surgery
This is also known as Blepharoplasty (surgical repair or reconstruction of an eye lid) but is commonly addressed as ‘Eye Bag’ Surgery or ‘Under eye’ surgery. This surgery restores the smooth contours that makes skin youthful and energetic when you were younger. Dermal fillers like Restylane (injectable fillers used to treat facial wrinkles), Restylane Silk (fillers used to plump lips or area near the mouth) or Voluma (fillers used to restore skin near cheeks) are other treatment options which work for the eye bags. In this non-surgical treatment, the fillers are used to smoothen the transition from the hill of the under-eye bag to the valley of hollow upper cheeks.

Upper Eyelid Surgery
As a woman ages, her eyes can get droopy and puffy. They may find it difficult to apply makeup eventually. This surgery is also known as ‘eyelift surgery’. This can correct the problems and maintain the beautiful contours which will give the person a chiseled look as before. With the help of fillers, the Cosmetologist or a skin specialist does the magic around the eyes by giving the person a refreshed feeling and a healthy skin around eyes.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is the most effective treatment for specific texture (feel or appearance) problems and many deep wrinkles which women experience when they start aging. During the procedure, the laser removes the superficial layers of skin damaged due to sun exposure. This allows the skin to produce new, healthier and attractive skin with improved texture and elasticity. Such treatment takes about an hour. The results often looks dramatic, but it is important to realize that this type of treatment takes about two weeks to heal and can take a month or more for the skin to return completely to normal, depending on the skin type of the person concerned.

Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are used to smoothen the lines around your eyes, fade wrinkles on your face, and also helps in making lips plumper, and gives youthful appearance which is very important for woman today. It is an injectable gel (consistency) substance called hyaluronic acid, which is a “water-loving” molecule found in the human body naturally. Dermal Filler is used for softening the skin around the nose and mouth. It are also used in lifting eyebrows and eye lids. These fillers gives nose a beautiful shape and profile etc.

Botox is used to cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily parlaying muscles. Botox Cosmetic is a safe and easy way to smooth the lines and wrinkles on your face without surgery. With the help of Botox, crow’s feet, frown lines and lines across your forehead can disappear or lessen with a quick treatment. Botox can be used to help in other amazing ways, including raising eyebrows, lifting the corners of mouth and getting rid of bands in neck etc. Botox works by temporarily reducing the signals sent by specific muscles. As the muscle don’t receive a message to contract, they stay relaxed. Hence, they cause wrinkles to fade away.
