Many people are bothered by signs of aging around the eyes, including excess skin, loose skin, sunken eyes, under eye lines, under eye bags, and under eye circles. In the past, these problems have been treated with surgery but many people nowadays don’t want to go under the knife. Fortunately, there are now many non-invasive methods available to help restore and rejuvenate the eyes.
Kool-tox℠ – our exclusive technique for Botox®, Xeomin®, or Dysport®
Dr. Ort pioneered the non-invasive Kool-tox℠ method of botulinum toxin treatment. Kool-toxSM treatment around the eyes can help to elevate the brow, reduce crow’s feet lines, and open up the eye in a pleasing way. This treatment is quick, safe, almost painless, and produces natural results. If you’ve ever had Botox® injections done in Lone Tree, Highlands Ranch, Castle Rock, Denver, or elsewhere, we invite you to experience the Kool-tox℠ difference!
Under Eye Fillers and Cannulas
Dr. Ort specializes in under eye filler injections to help hide under eye bags, circles, hollows, and shadows in Lone Tree and Denver. His goal with under eye filler treatment is a great result with minimal downtime. His typical fillers in this area are Restylane® or Belotero®. Filler injections in this area often last a year or more!
Dr. Ort usually prefers to inject the under eye area with a cannula instead of a sharp needle. Unlike a needle, a cannula is blunt and does not easily pierce blood vessels. This greatly reduces the risk of swelling and bruising and makes the overall treatment safer. Compared to using a needle, a cannula requires more training, experience, and patience on the part of the injector, but the potential benefits to patients are undeniable. There is a difference when it comes to dermal filler injections in Lone Tree and Denver!
Resurfacing of the skin is another great option for eye renewal and eye lift. For people with mild lines and loose skin, microneedling with SkinPen® can help stimulate new collagen production and smoothing of the skin. Laser treatment with our non-ablative fractional laser (similar to Fraxel®) is another great option with almost no downtime. For those with more advanced wrinkles or excess skin, laser resurfacing with fractional CO2 laser can provide more dramatic tightening and lifting of the skin around the eyes. A few days of healing can turn back the clock and reverse years of sun damage and aging.
Don’t forget the importance of good skincare to protect, enhance, and restore the skin around the eyes. Sun protection is essential. We recommend a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher and prefer physical sunscreens containing zinc oxide. We also encourage our patients to wear hats, protective clothing, and sunglasses. Our exclusive nV® SkinCare line can help to revitalize the skin and reverse signs of sun damage. With antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E, ferulic acid, and green tea, nV® SkinCare will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation and restore the skin’s radiance.
