Dermal Filler and Botox Treatment
Eye-bag and wrinkle problem is a very common problem among men and women. Dermal filler and botox injection is available at London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf, Dubai and in Harley Street London by our twin plastic surgeons Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel
I have bags under my eyes and no amount of eye cream seems to help. What can I do?
There are two options in this case. The first would depend on the surgeon’s assessment on the type of eye-bag. One non-permanent solution non-invasive solution may be possible to get a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, which is contained also within our bodies, to ‘fill’ under the eye-bag to blend in the protrusion to make the eye bag more subtle. In more severe cases, a one-hour surgical procedure is performed under sedation to remove the fat from the eye-bag that is the cause of the protrusion. The incisions are made in the eye line margin and are subtle, and the scars are not noticeable after a few weeks as the skin around the eye usually heals very well.
What would you suggest to reduce frown and smile lines, while still looking natural?
It is important to understand that there are two types of lines: dynamic and static lines; dynamic lines are caused by facial movements such as frowning and smiling; whilst static lines would include nasiolabial folds which are the lines that run from the corner of your mouth to the corner of your nose that become deeper with age due to the natural ageing process. When dealing with dynamic lines, the most efficient and natural-looking solution would be botilinum toxin type-A, more commonly known as botox. The botox weakens these strong facial movements, and if your plastic surgeon is extremely skilled he will be able to inject the right amount to still allow some movement whilst controlling the dynamic expressions, and this is an art that is very much under-estimated these days.
