The eye area is vital to how others perceive us. When we are looking for the truth, when we listen to others, when we want to engage with another person, the first instinct is to look toward someone’s eyes. And being a delicate and highly expressive area, the skin around the eyes can show age much sooner than we expect — and sometimes convey the wrong message about us.
We sometimes hear the question “What will make my eyes look younger — Exilis or Botox?” The answer is both, together! Exilis Eyes and Botox work very effectively in tandem to address signs of aging in the eye area.
The reason why this combination is so effective is because it addresses the eye area on two levels: the skin and the underlying muscle. Exilis’ warm radio-frequency waves encourage collagen production within the skin, promoting a more toned, youthful appearance. Botox, in contrast, addresses the muscle activity around the eyes (most notably in the crows’ feet area and between the brows). By relaxing the muscles around the eyes, fine lines become less pronounced because stress on the skin is diminished.
A Botox treatment is often effective for up to four months, whereas Exilis Eyes can be performed every 7 to 10 days (with the goal of completing a set of 4 to 6 Exilis sessions for optimum results).
