Studies have shown that a person’s eyes capture our attention first. Unfortunately, because the eye area is expressive and eyelid skin is thin, it’s the first area to show aging. No need to fret, though. We’ve consulted board-certified ophthalmologist and oculoplastic and reconstructive specialist Dr. Pooja Mally of OPAL Aesthetics for tips and treatments to help turn back the clock.
Advanced skincare—notably chemical peels, microneedling and facial lasers—are a great place to start. The broadband light (BBL) laser and HALO laser offered at OPAL Aesthetics enhance your complexion by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production. Based on your underlying skin damage and desired downtime, the team at OPAL Aesthetics can recommend a plan that will help you achieve your goals.
Want to bump your results up a notch? Cosmetic injectables like Botox provide another option for rejuvenating the ocular region. Injecting neurotoxins that relax the muscles can counter the development of line and wrinkle formation around the eyes. Coupled with a minimally invasive endoscopic brow lift, you can restore a more youthful appearance.
No matter the treatment selected to fit your needs, you can rest assured the highly trained ocular facial plastic surgeons and aestheticians at OPAL Aesthetics will deliver flawless, beautifully natural results.

Avoid the sun
Apply a moisturizer with at least 30 SPF, and wear a hat and sunglasses if you plan to be outside for a prolonged period of time.
Opt for a healthy lifestyle
Avoid smoking, optimize your hydration intake, make smart food choices and get a good night’s rest.
