Face masks are now the norm in many public spaces, and although it can take a while to get used to the “new normal” way of life, there’s no reason why you can’t look your most stylish in spite of the change. Since the areas of skin that are exposed the most are around the eyes, an increasing number of patients are turning to cosmetic treatments for these specific features. At The Spa @ Western Dermatology Consultants, we offer a wide range of options, including BOTOX® from our Albuquerque-based injectors. You can combine this and other options with your daily skin routine to look your best while wearing face coverings.
Our primary focus for makeup or skin care during this pandemic will be the eyes, along with the cheeks and upper areas of the facial skin that are visible while the other half of the face remains hidden. Cosmetic treatments will also cut down on the time you spend on your beauty routine, meaning that you can ditch the heavy makeup that often contributes to mask-related acne and other skin issues.
Get Brighter, More Youthful Eyes
The skin around the eyes is very thin, and because the muscles around the eye area move a lot whenever you blink or during other facial expressions, it can get stretched and form wrinkles. BOTOX® will soften the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines between the eyebrows by relaxing the muscles that pull the skin. Fillers like Juvederm® add more volume in the under-eye area to correct dark circles and hollows. TempSure™ radiofrequency treatments tighten skin to reduce bags under eyes.
You can also highlight your eyes by giving more attention to your eyebrows and using bolder eyeliners, mascara, and eyeshadow to really make the eyes pop while shifting the focus away from any wrinkles.
Maintain Beautiful Skin
Concerned about wrinkles, sun damage, or dry, blotchy, and dull skin? BOTOX® diminishes horizontal lines on the forehead, and other treatments—such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and fractional skin resurfacing—help to improve the overall skin quality by making your tone and texture more even. These methods exfoliate the surface to remove the damaged outer layer while encouraging collagen production.
