Natural, but definitely a noticeable difference in our Assistant Manager, Rachel’s transformation. Photos are taken 4 years apart: left side is her untouched face, and right side is an accumulation of Voluma to her cheekbone to gently lift and contour, Restylane for under eye hollows, Juvederm to gently plump her lips, and a touch of Botox to her midbrow, forehead, crows feet and brow lift, and Latisse for her lengthy lashes. There may be a few more little injections here and there we forgot about but we’re loving her final result!

The skin around the eye is delicate and tends to show age earlier than other areas of the face. The appearance of crow’s feet or hollows under the eyes can make someone look tired or unhappy when they are not. Fortunately dermal fillers candor BotoxDysport can be used to help rejuvenate the eye area.

Here are a few before and after eye rejuvenation treatments performed at our San Jose MedSpa.

Restylane Treatment for Eyes

Before and After Restylane Treatment for Under EyeShe didn’t really need anything done, but the little “hollows” under her eyes were starting to bother her. Restylane was used with a microcannula to minimize bruising and swelling after the procedure, and done with only one injection point per side. “After” photo shows her results 2 weeks after procedure.
