Nonsurgical Technique Can Take Years Off the Appearance of Aging Eyes

Volumizing the Brow with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

New York, NY (Vocus) August 17, 2009 -- As one ages, the characteristics of the eyes change in generally predictable ways: the skin thins and becomes less elastic, brows may descend, the upper lid may recede or enlarge, and the bones around the eyes appear more prominent.

"Although the upper lid can be improved with injections, the area we treat is the brow. In some cases, filling in the brow expands the lid skin sufficiently to smooth wrinkles."

According to Dr. Lambros, adding volume in the brow area can make the eye appear longer and fuller with less upper lid showing, all characteristics of a youthful eye. However, as in all cosmetic procedures, there is no "one size fits all" approach. "These are true aesthetic choices that must be decided through the patient's consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon," advises Dr. Lambros.
