A list of quick fixes for a girl on the go
With work, graduate school, and planning a wedding, I’ve been exhausted. But with all of the events coming up (engagement pictures, wedding showers, and graduation) I can’t afford to look as worn out as I feel. Here are four ways to pep up your tired eyes without sacrificing too much of your busy day.
- Clarisonic Opal: This little eye device utilizes ultra-sonic technology to get your favorite product much deeper into your skin. It only takes 30 seconds on each eye for a noticable decrease in under-eye issues including dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness.
- Medical Grade Product: Some of our favorites at the office are the Obagi’s ELASTIderm Eye Cream or Gel, SkinMedica’s Illuminating Eye, Night Eye Repair, or Uplifting Eye Serum. Each of these targets your eye concerns differently, so speak with a staff member to determine which product is right for you. And yes, all of these can be used with the Clarisonic Opal for best results.
- Botox or Dysport: If you’re looking for a very quick, maintenance-free fix, try a little Botox or Dysport underneath and around the eyes. This will help smooth out fine lines that make darker circles more apparent and will prevent those lines from getting worse. This treatment only takes about 15 minutes.
- Dermal Filler: Like Botox or Dysport, Dermal Filler around the eyes is a quick 15 minute appointment and can last up to one year. It primarily effects the appearance of shadowing caused by the collagen loss many people experience underneath their eyes (called tear trough). Dr. Clinton will inject a hyaluronic acid filler (such as Juvederm or Restylane) underneath the eye area to get rid of that hollowness that makes us look so worn out. The process is like adding air to a shriveled balloon and the result is a smooth, young, and refreshed appearance.
If you’re interested in trying any of these quick-fixes, contact our office to set up appointment with Allyson or Dr. Clinton. They can go over each option and help you determine what will work best for your individual concerns. 614-799-5100
