Eye rejuvenation, also known as non-surgical eyelift, is a procedure wherein minimally invasive techniques and injectables are used to restore the youthful appearance of your eyes. As we grow older, the loss of collagen and elastin makes our facial skin sag and droop downwards, which, in turn, also leads to wrinkles and facial creases. Furthermore, our eyelids may also droop, become disproportional, or develop deep wrinkles that make us look tired or upset. For these reasons, we offer eye rejuvenation in Ashburn & Leesburg, VA.
Eye Rejuvenation with PDO Threads (Mono Threads)
PDO threads are the most effective technique to reverse the signs of aging around the eyes and eyebrows. This procedure is performed using polydioxanone, a biocompatible and biodegradable thread generally used as a surgical suture. The cosmetic doctor carefully inserts smooth PDO threads underneath the skin tissues around the eyes to provide an instant lift. The PDO threads suspend the skin tissues, thereby smoothing the wrinkles and fine lines.
PDO threads also activate your body’s collagen production capabilities. Over time, your body will start producing new collagen fibers around the treatment site, making the region look smoother and voluminous. The PDO threads get absorbed by your body after a few months, but the new collagen fibers continue reversing the signs of aging. Collagen production smoothens facial wrinkles and adds volume under the eyes (under-eye bags), making you look younger. This is an effective treatment we use for eye rejuvenation in Ashburn & Leesburg.
At Prejuvenation Aesthetics, we perform the PDO thread procedure with mono threads, i.e., smooth threads without barbs. We insert numerous mono threads into the skin around the eyes to encourage skin tightening and collagen production. The number of threads depends on your specific goals and concerns. Mono threads are suitable for eye rejuvenation because they tighten the skin without producing significant lift, ensuring natural, anti-aging results.
Eye Rejuvenation with Neuromodulators (Botox)
A neuromodulator, such as Botox or Dysport, is injected around the eyes and eyelids to suppress the dynamic wrinkles and treat drooping eyelids. When injected into targeted facial tissues, a neuromodulator smoothens the crow’s feet around the eyes and the frown lines between the eyebrows. If you’re experiencing drooping eyelids, the cosmetic doctor will also inject it into the muscles dragging your eyelids down, thereby giving you a non-surgical brow lift.
Neuromodulators are cosmetic injectables composed of a neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin protein blocks the transmission of signals from nerve endings to the targeted muscles. When injected into the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles and drooping eyelids, it makes the muscles relax, thereby smoothing the surrounding regions. The results from neuromodulators last for 3 to 4 months, following which you need maintenance treatments.
Eye Rejuvenation with PRP Injections
PRP injections, short for platelet-rich plasma injections, are performed using components derived from your blood. The cosmetic provider draws a small sample of your blood from your arm. The blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasmas, which are then drawn into a syringe. The PRP is carefully injected under the eyes using ultrafine needles to correct excessive puffiness or under-eye hollows.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a part of the human blood with a high concentration of growth factors. The growth factors, in turn, are responsible for your body’s natural healing and growth capabilities, such as healing wounds and injuries. When delivered under the eyes, PRP injections encourage the formation of new blood vessels and skin cells, making your under-eye region look smooth, soft, and youthful. This is another very popular treatment in our eye rejuvenation in Ashburn & Leesburg.
