For the most pronounced skin problems in the eye area, they resort to surgical blepharoplasty.
To correct mild and moderate changes, injection and hardware exposure methods are used.
Mesotherapy, as well as photorejuvenation, laser lifting and thread reinforcement are most often performed.
Thanks to this effect, it is possible to eliminate the effect of the menacing eyelid, smooth wrinkles and eliminate puffiness. After blepharoplasty, a visible rejuvenating result is noted. However, despite the high efficiency, such a manipulation is a serious cosmetic procedure, and therefore has many limitations to its implementation.
The area around the eyes is quite sensitive. When choosing one or another method of rejuvenation, it is necessary to evaluate all possible risks.

Blepharoplasty can be either lower or upper eyelid. In the first case, an incision is made along the bottom of the eye, a few millimeters from the lash line. The second involves incising the skin along the upper eyelid.
Eye lifting without surgery is suitable as a prevention against premature skin aging. It is prescribed for problems such as:

These are cosmetic procedures performed using various devices. A thermal effect is exerted on the skin, as a result of which natural regeneration processes are started at the cellular level, blood circulation improves, wrinkles and collagen fibers begin to shrink.
A laser beam acts on the skin of the eyelids, after which microscopic lesions remain that stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.
Laser peeling is performed in two ways. This is fractional or radio-optical thermolysis. The method is not traumatic and safe.
It is performed when exposed to a pulsed low-frequency current. It is also considered non-traumatic but not as effective compared to other similar techniques.
It is based on the use of high intensity luminous fluxes.
This is a complex effect based on electromagnetic pulses. It helps restore the production of its own collagen fibers, making the skin more elastic and firm.
An RF lifting session around the eyes can be compared to plastic surgery in terms of efficiency. However, the main advantage of such manipulation is that the lifting effect is obtained due to the healing processes of the skin.
