Why Your Eyes Show Your Age (or Youth) the Most

female eyes

Per the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s journal, Ophthalmology, people make judgements of others’ age based almost solely on their eyes and the skin around them. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, and it seems that people can tell just how old your soul might be just by looking at them.

The Unique Study

Researcher Huy Tu Nguyen, MD, who works with the Harvard Department of Ophthalmology, along with his colleagues, studied 47 younger adults who were asked to look at and analyze the faces of older adults on a computer screen. These individuals were fitted with special eye-tracking cameras that allowed the researchers to better understand the parts of the faces the individuals looked at the longest.

Why Knowing Who Your Plastic Surgeon did His or Her Fellowship Under is Important

Fellow

The team at Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics knows that choosing a facial plastic surgeon or FFS surgeon can be a daunting task. After all, everyone claims to be the best, and it’s hard to know who is all talk and who can truly provide the results you want. One important factor to consider is who your surgeon did his or her fellowship under. This is vital for a few different reasons.

Plastic Surgeons are Doctors Too

All facial plastic surgeons are doctors, and they all must undergo the same basic training as a pediatrician, a general practitioner, or even a podiatrist. However, it’s once those first few years of education are over that a doctor begins to choose his or her path and specialty. When it comes to plastic surgery, it is common for people to confuse the terms “plastic surgery” and “cosmetic surgery”. A plastic surgeon is someone who is specially trained, through additional education and a fellowship program, to assist in advanced reconstructive procedures. A cosmetic surgeon, on the other hand, is someone who performs purely elective surgeries, such as facelifts designed to improve aesthetic appearance.

Nonsurgical Rejuvenation Treatments

5 Nonsurgical Rejuvenation Treatments You Can Get Done Quickly

Nonsurgical Rejuvenation Treatments

If you’re desperately seeking a rejuvenation treatment to help you feel younger, fresher, and more attractive, there are plenty of non-surgical options listed as outpatient procedures that can take anywhere from 15 minutes to just a few hours. Here is a list of the top 5.

#1 – Botox Injections

Botox injections have risen in popularity over the last several years because they are safe, effective, and for most people, without unwanted side effects. Botox can help relax facial muscles in such a way that even deeper lines and wrinkles become less noticeable. It takes anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to complete a Botox session depending on the number of areas to be treated, and while there may be some redness and swelling, most people can return to normal activities the very same day.

What is Radiofrequency-Assisted Liposuction?

liposuction, Radiofrequency-Assisted Liposuction

Liposuction has been around for decades. Up until recently, it’s been a relatively aggressive and invasive procedure designed to remove pounds of fat during a session through the use of various tools and procedures. Today’s liposuction is far different, though, and radiofrequency-assisted liposuction is making things much, much better for many people.

Traditional Liposuction

With traditional liposuction, the surgeon targets the removal of fat in certain areas across the body. The goal is to provide a smoother, more natural shape and to reduce the size of unwanted pockets of fat. The surgeon will make small incisions near the treatment area, then insert a long, hollow rod called a cannula into the layer of fat. The cannula breaks down the fat cells with heat, and then they are removed with a vacuum pump or some other form of suction. Though this has been the traditional method for many years, it is not as effective as some of the newer technologies that are available.

The Awesome Benefits of Microneedling

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is a procedure that’s growing in popularity with men and women across the globe. It involves using very, very tiny needles to create hundreds of invisible puncture wounds on the very top layer of your skin. While it might not sound very comfortable or appealing, it’s more comfortable than you might expect, and the benefits certainly speak for themselves.

How Microneedling Works

Before your microneedling session, your plastic surgeon or dermatologist will first cleanse your face very painstakingly with an antibacterial and germicidal solution. This will reduce any chance of infection. Because microneedling can be painful for some, many doctors and surgeons will use a local anesthetic to numb the top layer of the skin, thus reducing the sensation of pain and discomfort. Finally, the doctor will use a tool that looks much like a small lint covered in tiny needles over the entire surface area of your face, avoiding the eyes.

As the roller moves over your face, it creates hundreds and even thousands of microscopic holes in the very surface of your skin. These holes injure the skin just enough that your immune system must kick in to repair it. Studies have shown that this tiny, unnoticeable injury is just enough to kick your skin’s collagen production into overdrive. As your skin repairs itself, it looks firmer, more youthful, and supplier.
