Top 10 Med Spa Eye Treatments
Your eyes are the first feature people notice about you. Bright, beautiful, eyes with luscious lashes can make you look attractive, energetic and youthful. But tired, sunken, wrinkled eyes, invisible lashes, or bags beneath the eyes can add years to your appearance and make you un approachable.
Fortunately, AMAE Med Spa in Oakland County offers several med spa treatments that can reverse wrinkles around the eyes, minimize dark circles, eliminate eye bags, and enhance lashes. In this two-part article, our skincare experts share ten med spa treatments and products that can brighten your eyes – so you that look always look amazing!
#1. Eyelash Tinting
Eyelash tinting is treatment that applies a semi-permanent, waterproof dye to the upper and lower eyelashes. The rich, dark dye makes pale eyelashes lashes appear not only darker, but also longer and fuller. The end result is a bolder, wide-eyed look – with very little to no upkeep.
#2. Eyelash Lift
An eyelash lift uses a tiny curling iron and a safe but powerful lifting and setting “perm” solution to curl your own eyelashes upward from the base up to the tip, so that full length of the lash is visible. An eyelash lift only takes about 45 minutes and results will generally last four to six weeks.
#3. LATISSE Eyelash Growth Serum
At AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI we also offer prescription LATISSE, a topical medication that is FDA approved to help women and men grow thicker, longer, fuller eyelashes. In clinical tests it almost 80% of LATISSE® users experienced a significant increase in the length, fullness, and darkness of their eyelashes after 16 weeks. Patients reported that eyelashes were 18% darker, 25% longer, and an astounding 106% fuller!
#3. Chemical Peels for Fine Lines & Crow’s Feet
We also offer a wide variety of chemical peels, that come in a variety of strengths and formulations, to reduce wrinkles and lines around the eyes. Glycolic acid facial peels are a “medium-grade” form of chemical peel, that peel away the top layer of dead and damaged skin – which softens fine lines and gives around the eyes more smooth and “plumped” appearance. Retinol peels are even stronger – and can improve skin smoothness, elasticity, luminosity and texture, and dramatically minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and elsewhere.
#4. Botox for Lines Between & Around the Eyes
Botox injections are the world’s most popular and effective method of getting rid of lines around and between the eyes. Botox works by relaxing the muscle contractions that are responsible for wrinkles, lines and creases in the forehead and around the eyes. Full results develop in just a couple days – and last for up to 4 months.
#5. Medical Grade Skincare for Beautiful Eyes
Daily skincare is the foundation of smooth, bright skin around the eyes. AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI offers a wide selection of medical grade skin care products formulated specifically for the eyes by Alastin and Zo Skin Health by Obagi. We offer skincare products that are high in hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and retinol – which encourage cell regeneration and collagen production, to repair wrinkles and keep skin plump and supple.
#6. Morheus8 Microneedling for Fine Eye Lines
During Morpheus8 microneedling a special medical grade device is used to puncture extremely tiny holes into the skin, while delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the lower layers of skin. These microscopic “wounds” stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, and produce newer, younger skin and stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate the face and eye area.
#7. Juvéderm® Volbella XC for Undereye Circles
Under-eye circles are a troublesome aesthetic concern for many people, and one of the most frequently requested treatment areas among patients at AMAE Med Spa in Oakland County. Unfortunately topic creams and serums and under-eye concealers rarely do much to reduce darkness below the eyes. But just this year Allergan Aesthetics announced that the FDA has approved the use of Juvéderm® Volbella XC (in adults over the age of 21) for improvement of dark circles in the “infraorbital hollows” under the eyes.
#8. Profound Radiofrequency Microneedling
We also offer Profound radiofrequency microneedling – the latest and most advanced skin resurfacing and tightening treatment. State-of-the-art Profound is so effective at reversing the signs of aging that it is often called a “non-surgical face lift.” Profound Combines two of the most powerful skin regeneration technologies – microneedling and radiofrequency energy – to tone and tighten skin around the eyes.
#9. Fraxel Laser for Fine Lines around the Eyes
Fraxel laser treatments are another extremely effective skin resurfacing treatment – for smoother, brighter, tighter skin around the eyes. Fraxel lasers use heat energy to create mild trauma within the skin cells, that stimulates the production of new collagen. Fraxel laser is a safer and gentler alternative to previous “ablative” laser resurfacing techniques, which vaporized the skin surface. Fraxel laser skin resurfacing preserves the integrity of most of the skin surface – resulting in far less discomfort as well as eliminating downtime.
#10. ThermiSmooth for Fine Lines around the Eyes
ThermiSmooth, is another non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that tightens skin, reduces wrinkles and restores a youthful appearance. ThermiSmooth works by applying radio-frequency heat to the face. This stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen beneath the skin, which plumps and tightens the face, and smooths out fine lines around the eyes.
