Laser Skin Resurfacing around the Eyes

As we get older, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and youthful appearance – especially the skin around our eyes.  Excessive exposure to sunlight and other factors such as nutrition, genetics, alcohol consumption and smoking can accelerate the ageing process.  Laser skin resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, is a very safe and effective technique used to improve the appearance of your skin by reducing the amount and severity of facial and eyelid wrinkles, while also correcting minor skin flaws.

How does Botox work?
Botox is derived from the Botulinum Toxin Type A, which, when injected into a muscle in very small amounts, is able to paralyze that muscle for a certain period of time. Creases and wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle contractions when we perform day-to-day actions such as smiling or frowning. Botox actually blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscle, so the injected muscle can’t contract.

Beyond aesthetics, Botox is also proving effective […]
