Battle Eye Wrinkles With These Procedures

Battle Eye Wrinkles With These Procedures

Wrinkles around the eyes are usually one of the earliest indicators that the aging process has begun. The development of these frustrating fine lines is also a result of smoking, prolonged sun exposure, genetics and other lifestyle factors. Whatever the cause, these tiny wrinkles and fine lines can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance and make you look older. You may be tempted to temporarily cover them with makeup or over-the-counter eye creams. But if you’re tired of temporary fixes, you can find more permanent solutions for eye wrinkles at Innovations Medical.

Botox. Botox is one of the best ways to treat wrinkles around the eyes because it weakens the muscles of the face that contribute to the development of wrinkles from moving. Weakening the muscles helps to make the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes disappear. Many people see the results of their Botox procedure very quickly. Botox lasts between three and six months for most people.

Fraxel Laser. Fraxel laser therapy is also an excellent option to erase lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Fraxel laser works by stimulating new skin growth. The new skin pushes out old skin and accelerates the production of collagen. This increased production of collagen has a skin tightening effect which smooths out wrinkles. Fraxel laser therapy has little to no downtime and is perfect for targeting specific areas of the face and body. Results of Fraxel laser therapy last about two to four years.

Fall Into Flawless Skin

Fall Into Flawless Skin

Temperatures are dropping in North Texas, which means fall is slowly making its way across the state. All of Dallas-Fort Worth is getting ready for pumpkin spice everything, Cowboys football and the State Fair. Fall is also a perfect time for a chemical peel or other skin treatment from Innovations Medical Center.

Fall is an excellent time for skin rejuvenation for a few reasons. First and foremost, you probably caught a few rays this summer and may have forgotten sunscreen once or twice. As a result, you may have signs of sun damage, like sunspots and freckles. A skin rejuvenation procedure like Fraxel Laser can reverse these signs, leaving your skin tone even this season.

Timing your treatments in the fall also makes sense because the sun's rays are not as strong during the latter part of the year. You also have a longer period to recover before the UV levels get to full strength again in the spring. This longer recovery time is beneficial for you because skin-rejuvenating treatments like chemical peels and many lasers slough off the outermost layers of the skin, leaving new skin that is tender and photosensitive.

Menopause Wreaking Havoc on Your Skin?

Menopause Wreaking Havoc on Your Skin?

Menopause means a lot of changes for most women. It means changes in the menstrual cycle, body temperature, weight, and hair. Many women also see changes in the appearance and quality of their skin, too. All of these changes are brought on by fluctuating and declining hormones, but when it comes to differences in skin quality, depleted estrogen is the root cause.


When estrogen declines, testosterone becomes dominant. When this occurs, the body produces more sebum; an oily, waxy substance that is made in the sebaceous glands, which are responsible for lubricated the skin and hair. This overproduction gives the skin an oily appearance, and in many women causes blemishes and acne. According to the American Association of Dermatology, 54 percent of menopausal women struggle with the onset of acne during middle age. Acne causes many women to feel self-conscious, and some individuals even avoid social situations or relationships because of the condition of their skin.

Increased facial hair is another consequence of testosterone dominance. During menopause, many women experience thicker, darker facial hair that develops around the chin area and along the jaw line. Increased facial hair often evokes feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness, and is a source of frustration for many women.
