As businesses in our area are slowly re-opening, the most popular request is for guests to wear a mask on their premises. Staying safe is crucial to our community, but maintaining your self-care routines should not be placed on the back burner during this time, either. Wearing masks daily has protected our immune systems, but slowly has taken a toll on our skin in more areas than one. Let’s focus on the positives and how we can enhance the parts of our face that can be seen above the mask. It’s all about your eyes and brows these days! Caring for these important features on our faces is the key to connecting with individuals right now, as our smiles and other facial expressions are masked for our protection. They say that our eyes are the windows to our souls, and with that being the primarily visible portion of our faces, you want to consider a new way to make them look their best.
Have you ever considered using Botox?
Botox is a neuromodulator, which is essentially a muscle relaxant. Botox and other neuromodulators are injected into areas that are prone to wrinkles to help alleviate them. Some areas popular for injections include the sides of your eyes, commonly referred to as “Crow’s Feet,” in between your eyebrows (aka “the frown”), and those pesky forehead lines. The treatment is relatively painless when appropriately injected, and the results will last for several months. Another common use for this medication is a brow lift. This is the perfect way to draw attention to your eyes as they will appear more open, delivering a beautiful and youthful result. Consult with your provider about having Botox injected in these areas to focus on enhancing your visible features when wearing a mask.
What about dermal filler?
A lot of people are familiar with using dermal fillers for popular areas such as our lips. However, did you know that you can use filler under the eyes? Many of us have noticed deeper and darker circles under our eyes from the stress provoked from the pandemic. It’s natural to lose sleep over the changes we are all experiencing, or perhaps you’ve always used makeup to conceal this area.
There is another solution to consider; it is possible to fill in under the eyes with dermal filler. Filling in the dark or hollow areas under the eyes switches the focus back to your eyes, allowing you to look more rested and restore the youthfulness we are all chasing. In most settings, you are numbed before the injections, and there is minimal downtime associated with the procedure. Ask your provider if you are a candidate for under eye filler!
There are several treatment pathways to consider when assessing beauty above the mask. To help you get started, we are hosting a Botox giveaway! Whether this is your first encounter with Botox, or if you’re looking to get back into your Botox routine, anyone is welcome to enter!
