With the passage of time, our eyes get an appearance of sadness or even permanent disapproval. The eyelids descend and the end of the eyebrow is not in the same point as always, in addition to the dark circles are not the result of insufficient sleep. And is that in our eyes is where we first see the signs of aging and with which we reach a presence of sadness that does not concern our mood. Before any treatment, it is always essential to know the facial muscles and their functions to achieve an aesthetic and harmonious result.


In cases where the patient has an angry expression caused by excessive contraction of muscles located on the head of the eyebrow and dorsum of the nose, Dr.. Santana applies the most common treatment in these cases: botulinum toxin. Sometimes this alternates with hyaluronic acid filling when the wrinkles are very marked or deep. To relieve fatigue and the fall of the different structures in this area we can apply absorbable fillers such as hyaluronic acid. This component is found in our body naturally and is combined with botulinum toxin.


The cases in which the eyelids take on an aspect of sadness are produced by a decay of the skin tissues that accumulate on the eyelid. In this case, an in-depth study is made of the different anatomical structures that form the eyelids. In this way, the patient has a more exclusive and natural result and a personalized treatment to the maximum. The idea is to see if the patient is going to be a candidate for the technique, since we combine filling of the upper eyelid with hyaluronic acid or the use of PDO threads (polideoxanone) combined with botulinum toxin .


Another sign of aging is the fall of the tail of the eyebrow. At the Santana Clinic, hyaluronic acid is used to replace the volume lost in these areas, just above the eyebrow on the temporal crest (temple) and around the eyes.. This technique combines with botulinum toxin to relax the arch of the eyebrow and prevent this area from going down. The placed PDO threads serve to repair that high eyebrow.


For the diffusion of dark circles there are different options to treat it. After studying with thoroughness of the anatomical area it is observed which is the real problem of the patient. If the drawback is the coloring of the same, we use a combination of specific peels for the area next to a special mesotherapy to fix the coloration of the same and next to collagen. In this way we obtain a lighting effect of the look by reducing the pigmentations.


On the other hand, if the problem at hand are the deep dark circles, then Dr.. Santana supplies deep hyaluronic acid specifically for dark circles. Thanks to its low hygroscopic power, it prevents the appearance of unwanted effects.
