Wonjin Beauty Medical Group Upper Blepharoplasty to retain elasticity for middle-aged eye rim.

To obtain youthful appearance has always been a popular topic, but it has became more so over the past few years. Face wrinkles on areas such as, eyes, forehead, and smile lines make it difficult to maintain a youthful appearance. Skin around the eye rim especially, begins to lose elasticity from midlife where the layer becomes thinner and age faster due to constant movement.

When upper eyelids start to sag with aging, it can either cover your vision range or create dark circles giving you a depressed look and it makes you look older than your actual age. Using cosmetics with multiple benefits of anti-aging or receiving beauty treatments can only deliver short term or temporary results. It does not improve the actual underlying issues. That is why; there has been a massive increase of inquiries from middle-aged people regarding eye surgery.

Once the upper eyelids become droopy due to ageing, your vision range is covered and you are made to use your forehead in order to open your eyes wider and bigger. This adds force on your forehead, promoting wrinkles.

Furthermore, if the upper eyelid and lower eyelid are engaged too close together, the skin becomes soft, causing inflammation and discharges

Upper Blepharoplasty is performed by making an incision on the upper section of the upper eyelid, then remove parts of the loose skin and tighten the forehead, eyebrows, and eyelids; creating a more defined eyes. You can also decide to make a double eyelid within the process.

If you have severe wrinkles around the eyes, it can portray an aggressive and negative appearance. Upper Blepharoplasty can also prevent facial folds, and give you more gentle and calm impression.

If the upper eyelids become droopy, not only it makes you look older, but it also has functional issues such as, eye lashes pricking your eyes or covering your vision range. Such cases are required to improve both esthetic and functional aspects, not just the outside appearance. Also, it is important to neatly trim the uneven eyelid line to achieve a youthful appearance with beautiful eye shape.

Moreover, Upper Blepharoplasty also resolves the underlying condition of droopy eyelid by strengthening the tension of levator palpebrae superioris, therefore, minimizing the possibility of recurrence.

On the other hand, it is important to note that middle-aged people depending on individual’s aging process lack in natural resilience compared to younger generation. Therefore, you need to be extra cautious before making the decision to undergo surgery. Make sure the operating surgeon is a skilled professional with multiple experiences in the field. Also, check if the hospital has well equipped safety facilities.

Difference between Skin and Toners

What is the difference between Skin and Toners? This is something I’ve always thought about, and today, I will be answering this question in detail!
So, what is the difference between Skin and Toners? I wonder whether I should use both or just the one. Well, there is a clear difference between the two!!

To simply things, Toners should be understood as a step that follows right after cleansing and Skin falls under the prep step of the main treatment or skincare.
Double or multiple cleansing using a form cleanser not only irritates the skin causing dryness, but it also has limitations to fully remove dead skin cells and make-up residues.
This is where Toner comes in play, and wipes away the remaining residue and clarifies the skin after cleansing.
This is where the term, wet a cotton pad with the toner and wipe away derives from.

Skin should be considered as a type of lotion. It helps calm irritated skin after cleansing, and prepares skin’s condition for better absorption for the following steps of skincare, such as essence or serum.
So then, how do we choose which Skin and Toners?

Skin and Toners can both be used if their ingredients are non-irritating; however, it can be costly and very time consuming.
Therefore, it is good to know that these pre-makeup skincare products are simply used to prepare the skin, and its’ main focus isn’t greatly on supplying nourishment.

If you have dry or sensitive skin, it is best to avoid using Toners. But, if you have combination skin type, it is recommended to use Toners to balance oily areas, such as T-zone.
Now you can differentiate between Skin and Toners!!! Best of luck for good skincare~!
