How are Wrinkles Around the Eye Treated Differently Than Other Facial Wrinkles?

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

Any time you have work done near your eyes, you need a medical team who understands the exceptionally delicate nature of that area. After all, skin is usually thinner and more fragile around the eyes, and the risks associated with any type of eye-area procedure increase substantially.

Therefore, wrinkles around the eyes should be treated with unparalleled precision, especially when you choose a treatment like Thermage.®

At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, our medical director is Dr. Nasrin Mani, a Board Certified Ophthalmologist. That’s right. You can have the best of both worlds: a highly skilled and awarded practitioner for non-invasive cosmetic work and an eye doctor with 18+ years of experience in eye medicine.

In addition to Thermage work, treating wrinkles around the eyes is also a bit different than other parts of the face when using injectables.

Unlike many static wrinkles that result simply from aging and sun damage, wrinkles around the eye are often dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated muscle movement.

Therefore, you would treat, in many cases, eye-area wrinkles not with dermal fillers, but with wrinkle relaxers. Wrinkle relaxers include BOTOX®and Dysport,®both of which “paralyze” the muscle near the wrinkle.
