HB: What are the non-surgical options when it comes to addressing the rejuvenation of the eyes? How does each of these work?

There are not many non-surgical treatments for the aging eye. Botox injections can soften the creases around the eyes. The hollowness in the lower eyelids can accentuate the bags in the lower eyelid; this area can be improved with specialized injections of fillers, like Juvederm or Restylane, into the hollow area, which can camouflage the bags and make the lower eyelids look more youthful.

HB: What are the treatments like? What is recovery like?

The treatment only takes 10 minutes-15 minutes, with minimal discomfort, typically there is minimal swelling and bruising. Most patients can return to work immediately.
