Wake Me Up
This non-invasive eye treatment is designed specifically to open up your eyes. Your eyes are the windows to your soul and they are also one of the first places to show the signs of ageing. Ageing around the delicate skin area of the eyes usually start with dark circles, puffiness and fine lines or wrinkles. The fine lines or wrinkles can be on the side (termed crow’s feet) or under the eye. Dehydration can also cause the delicate skin around the eye area to look wrinkly. As we lose the ability to make collagen and lose elasticity around the eyes, we start noticing early sagging or droopiness of the brow. Most of us will then find it more difficult to use eye pencil or mascara when we put our make-up on. Hollowness around the eyes make the tear trough more visible. These signs make us look old, tired, ill and demotivated.
What is Wake Me Up?
Wake Me Up is our in house most popular non-surgical eye treatment. Wake Me Up can be one treatment or a combination of treatments depending on your requirement.
What can we do?
Firstly, the fine lines and wrinkles can be treated with Botox® (Botulinum Toxin wrinkle smoothing injection) injections around the lateral corner of the eyes. A very small dose can also be injected on the corner of the brow by experienced medical experts to create an eyebrow lift (gently lifts the eyebrow without looking like Spock). Similarly, a small dose under the eye when done correctly can help to ‘open’ the eye making you look fresh. Although termed crow’s feet, these laughter lines on the lateral corner of the eyes are quite distinguished. Hence in some patients, it is more natural to leave some. It is not necessary to have a completely smooth look without lines. The aim at W1 is always to look fresh and natural, to be the best version of you!
Under the eye treatments for the tear trough can be treated using a specific approved under eye hyaluronic acid dermal fillers just for the tear trough (Teosyal Redensity II by Teoxane). This filler is soft and when injected by experienced medical professional it works wonders to refresh the eyes and rejuvenate the tear trough and banish that hollow tired look.
Depending on the individual and what other ageing signs to be treated, we can also combine the hyaluronic acid with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma therapy) with your own growth factors. This Eye Regen treatment helps combat dark circles and is one of Dr. Terry’s favourite treatments (Dr. Terry Loong is our senior aesthetic doctor at W1 who is renowned for her eye treatments).
PRP, the vampire or Dracula treatment on its own, like mesotherapy, is also beneficial as a biorejuvenation skin treatment for those wanting strictly bio and natural treatment for the delicate eye area. The growth factors from the PRP helps to rejuvenate and rehydrate the delicate eye area naturally whilst improving the skin elasticity and condition.
