Are eyes the new lips?

The use of masks conceals the mouth on many occasions but at the same time puts the spotlight on the eyes, making the eyes the real protagonists of the moment.

Let’s not fool ourselves, it is extremely likely that masks will be part of our normality, at least for the next few years. That being said, it is normal that aesthetic medicine is wondering whether the eyes will be the new lips.



As Dr Marco Bartolucci, aesthetic doctor and founder of the SOTHERGA clinic, tells us: “Today we are seeing a sharp increase in requests for treatments in the eye area, but above all it is the type of patient that gives us pause for thought. Requests are arriving in large numbers, even from very young patients, who have generally never been interested in this area at such an early age.”



Why eyes are in the spotlight today


Treatments for the eye area, whether through surgical or minimally invasive aesthetic medicine, have always been in demand. This is easy enough to explain, since it is where our face ages first and most noticeably. Patients looking for a solution to problems such as dark circles, bags and wrinkles around the eyes have always been plentiful.


Another reason not to be underestimated is that by working from home, unlike in the past, patients often feel they have time to take care of themselves and devote time to those treatments they have been putting off for a long time, even contemplating the days afterwards, those dedicated to recovery, when the treatments are done.



Treatments that give your eyes a fresh look


All those minimally invasive procedures that restore freshness to the eyes and immediately give a more youthful and relaxed look to the whole face, are in great demand. These include hyaluronic acid-based fillers to reduce dark circles through volume increase, botulinum toxin to treat wrinkles, and radiofrequency to firm the upper eyelid, triggering the production of new collagen and treating areas affected by sagging.


Injectable treatments for dark under-eye areas use very fine needles and aim to restore the loss of volume through fillers of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, thereby eliminating the colouring of dark circles and smoothing the skin. Another type of latest-generation injection is the peptide-enriched bio-filler; a solution preferred by practitioners in less severe cases and in the presence of less obvious imperfections.



Carboxytherapy is also popular, using CO2 injections to reactivate the microcirculation and eliminate the dark colouring typical of under-eye circles, painlessly and non-invasively.



Even in the problem of drooping eyelids, SOTHERGA offers minimally invasive solutions with very short recovery times (just a few days). SOTHERGA offers patients the best technology on the market, such as the CO2RE laser and DAS (Dermo Ablation Surgery) for non-surgical blepharoplasty.



Are lips then going to take a back seat? The demand for lip treatments may not increase for some time, but rest assured that they will soon take centre stage again, as soon as there are more opportunities to show them off!
