EYE & FACE REJUVENATION
The eye has long been at the centre of how we perceive beauty and is often the first place to show signs of ageing. From dark circles to eye bags, from puffy skin to accentuated tear troughs, the variety of eye-related issues Dr Manoharan sees is vast. With the skin in the area being relatively thin and delicate, this has implications on the way these conditions are treated for improved appearance.
In the same vein, interest in facial rejuvenation has increased as technological advancements and practitioner specialisations in non-surgical treatments have been made.
Understandably, Dr Manoharan sees plenty of patients looking for facial and eye rejuvenation for a more youthful look. With every patient looking for different results, and every face being different, Dr Manoharan must take a tailored approach to every treatment plan.
In pursuit of a healthy glow and well-rested look, dark circles can be the enemy. The darkness can make the eye contour area appear ‘hollowed’. Genetics will play an important role, in addition to diet, sleeping habits, and other lifestyle factors.
Many patients are seeking the dewy, healthy look that we see in the eye contour of younger people. Eye bags are a common complaint of patients, one with many different causes and appearances.
Every day you use your eyes and brows to form facial expressions, to communicate non-verbally. This is one of the reasons why, as we age, fine lines and wrinkles form. The area has little subcutaneous fatty tissue to fill out areas with skin crinkles.
The tear trough is the ‘ridge’ beginning for the inner eye corner, extending downward and outward following the lower lash line. The appearance of a person’s tear troughs depends on their genetics, age and other lifestyle factors. As we age, the under-eye area can lose volume and the skin can become thin, resulting in a ‘hollowed’ effect.
