Do you remember where you were when you first noticed your crow’s feet? Perhaps you were glancing in the mirror after a shower or examining photos of yourself from a recent vacation. No one likes to see those little wrinkles around the corner of the eye, but fortunately, there are ways to prevent or reduce their appearance.

Less Salt, More Starch

The Huffington Post recently spoke with an anti-aging expert who had a few tips on how to make tired-looking, wrinkly eyes appear more vibrant and youthful. Salt can play a major factor in your peepers’ appearance and too much of it causes the skin to inflame and the thin, sensitive skin around the eyes to easily become puffy. If you do happen to have a very salty meal, he suggests drinking eight to 12 glasses of water the following day to rejuvenate your skin.

Forget the old cucumber trick – starchy potatoes might be better. The doctor says that cuke slices are great to reduce puffiness and redness around the eyes, but for those of us who are more worried about dark circles in this region, pieces of potato might be better. Chill the potatoes and rest them on your eyes for five minutes or so, and you’ll likely see a change for the better.

Revamping Your Beauty Regimen

There may be a few cosmetic tricks you can use to help make your eyes appear brighter. According to the news source, unkempt eyebrows can have a big impact on how your eyes appear. Our eyebrows change as we grow older, often becoming thinner, messier or grayer. Many spas and salons offer “eyebrow makeovers,” and you might be surprised at the results.

There’s another sector of the beauty world that can help with eye woes – cosmetic medicine. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, there are a number of aesthetic procedures that can make improvements around the eyes. Botox or dermal fillerscan help treat fine lines around the eyes, while an eye lift or face lift can offer more permanent results.

Skin procedures like chemical peels or microdermabrasion can also enhance the quality of your facial skin. To determine what solution may be best for you, book a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
