Are Your Eyes Telling Your Age?

Atlanta GA Cosmetic DermatologistsYour eyes are often one of the first features people notice, and they are also one of the first to show signs of aging. Eyes are surrounded by tender, sensitive skin that is especially prone to show how old you are. Patients often seek help for crow’s feet, drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes, which can all make you appear tired and older than you really are.

Visiting your dermatologist for eye and skin rejuvenation is a great place to start. You do not have to undergo invasive procedures such as blepharoplasty (eye lid surgery) to gain a more youthful look. There are plenty of options that can help you ward off the signs of aging, ranging from topical creams you can apply at night to filler injections and laser therapy from your dermatologist.

Here are some common eye concerns and what causes them:

Dark Circles

There are many causes of dark circles, including heredity, allergies/congestion, loss of bone (creates shadow), hyperpigmentation, and loss of collagen (more translucent skin).

Hallowness/Puffiness

Fat pads that used to support your eye tend to migrate downward. This happens because the thin membrane that holds the fat pad weakens with age and the bone surrounding the eye begins to diminish, leading to bigger eye hollows.

Wrinkling and sagging

There are several contributing factors here. Injectable fillers or even laser therapy can restore components such as lost volume and elasticity that may be causing your crow’s feet or sagging areas around the eyes. Botox and Dysport can be used for smoothing out wrinkles around the eye as well as offering a brow lift.

While aging takes its toil on many areas of the face, patients find that addressing the signs of aging around the eyes can make a drastic difference. Talk to a professional from Olansky Dermatology Associates to determine which skin rejuvenation or aesthetic service can address your specific concerns best.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
