 3 Cosmetic Treatments to Refresh Your Eyes
Your eyes tell a story. When the areas around your eyes change because of aging, you might come across as more tired or moody. Address these appearance changes with our custom eye-renewing treatments.

Your eyes, lids, and brows are among the first features people notice. These features also contribute to your expression, allowing others to pick up on your feelings. 

Although your eyes communicate nonverbally, age-related changes to the features around them can obscure your true mood and demeanor. For example, most people perceive droopy eyelids to indicate tiredness. In reality, you may be fully alert despite your sagging lids.

As a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, John P. Freeman, MD, DDS, FACS, is an expert in facial harmony. Using the latest techniques in cosmetic surgery and aesthetic treatments, he can alter your least-favorable features to restore a more youthful appearance, starting with your eyes. 

Dr. Freeman invites you to visit his private practice in Katy, Texas, for a consultation to discover how cosmetic treatments can make your eyes a focal point. 

Ready to refresh your eyes with anti-aging procedures? Consider these three:

1. Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that tightens your eyelid skin so it doesn’t droop. It can also remove fat and excess skin from under the eyes so you don’t look tired. You can opt for upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or both, based on your needs and preferences. 

Blepharoplasty might be your best option if you have:

  • Sagging upper lids
  • Sagging lower lids
  • Droopy eye bags
  • Irritation in the folds of the skin around your eyes
  • A chronically tired or worried facial expression

Dr. Freeman places incisions strategically for minimal scarring. 

Blepharoplasty is one of the most popular facial cosmetic surgeries. However, for many people who get the surgery, blepharoplasty also restores a wider field of vision. That improves your ability to read, drive, work, and enjoy a higher quality of life. 

2. Brow lift

A brow lift is another option if you’re unhappy with how your eyes look. Creases along your brow make you look angry. A brow lift is your best option if your brow is low, wrinkled, or sagging.

Brow lifts sometimes have functional benefits. Your drooping brow might obstruct your upper vision. Fortunately, a brow lift restores it. Many people opt for both a brow lift and blepharoplasty for more comprehensive cosmetic and functional benefits. 

Dr. Freeman specializes in three brow lift techniques: coronal brow lift, endoscopic brow lift, and temporal brow lift. During your initial consultation, he examines your brow skin and decides which technique will offer the best benefits based on your needs.  

3. Skin resurfacing

Do you have crow’s feet or other tiny wrinkles around your eyes? Unfortunately, brow lifts and blepharoplasty don’t treat them. However, laser resurfacing, microneedling with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), and other skin treatments can soften crow’s feet. 

Dr. Freeman helps you review your options. 

When combined with other eye-refreshing procedures like brow lifts and blepharoplasty, skin-rejuvenating or resurfacing treatments refresh your appearance and draw attention to your eyes.
