With the pandemic dragging on much longer than expected, masks are officially here to stay. This also means we tend to immediately focus on our eyes and everyone else’s. Our eyes are extremely important and they have been very important culturally for a very long time. Eyelid surgery has become a popular tool for enhancing our eye beauty.
Throughout history, we have been enhancing our eyes through kohl, colour and other various ways to make them appear even larger than they usually are. In our time today, it is no different and is increasingly normal to seek ways to make these adjustments permanent even without makeup. Eye lifting surgeries are an increasingly popular and common way to inject fresh new life into your face but are an invasive treatment and might not be what you’re looking for.
Besides eye lifting surgeries, there are also temporary alternative methods such as eye masks, facial masks and non-invasive aesthetic treatments such as the HIFU Eyelift SygmaLift treatment offered at Cambridge Therapeutics.
Eyelift surgeries (or Blepharoplasty), is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. In 2016, 209,000 eyelid surgeries were performed, which was a 2 percent increase from the number of eyelid surgeries performed in 2015. 
Different from what we in Asia are more familiar with (Asian eyelid surgery to create double eyelids), eye lift surgeries are done to remove excess skin from the upper eyelids and to reduce bagginess on the lower eyelids.
This is an easy and effective way that many people opt to get an instant lift and this procedure has not lost its popularity despite the pandemic. We also predict it may get even more popular especially since we will only be showing our eyes for the years to come.
The Advantages of Eyelift Surgeries:
Face masks on the whole are a quick and easy way to add moisture and firmness to the skin. They are affordable, cooling and easy to afford. What people tend to leave out most of the time are eye masks. They can really improve the impact of how your dark circles or eye bags look. Like face masks, they are easy to incorporate into your daily skincare routine.
The skin beneath our eyes is very thin and it is easy to see what lies underneath if we do not take care of them regularly. Eye masks cannot solve all of your troubles but they can help to lighten the load. With more time spent staring at the screen especially if we’re used to working well into the night, eye masks can be a lifesaver.
Several eye masks target the different eye issues we may experience but in general, eye masks will help to brighten, firm and hydrate your eyes. If you have trouble finding an eye mask that might work for you and are looking for a more permanent change to your under-eye areas, it could be a sign that eye masks are no longer working for you and that you might need to seek professional treatments.
However, if you already have face masks or are planning to purchase some, face masks can also help to brighten your under-eye areas but may not be as effective or targeted as eye masks can be because they were not made to target your under-eye areas specifically but focus on the overall improvement of your face instead.
Face masks come in a wider range of textures, colours, ingredients and can be what you’re looking for if you also want to give your entire face a quick lift. Face masks can help to give a youthful glow to the skin, hydrate, brighten and plump up the skin. A face mask can also be worn at night or be made from natural ingredients found in your kitchen.
Like any skincare product you buy, it is important to first research how the mask can meet your needs and to evaluate what type of skin issues you are seeking to solve. This can help the process of your search and save you time from purchasing an unsuitable product.
Cambridge Therapeutics offers a non-invasive alternative to surgical facelifts that are also beneficial in addressing under eye issues. Using micro-ultrasound the treatment rejuvenates the face and targets the skin tissue with precision. Face masks and eye masks may be more affordable but in the long run, might not be able to offer you the solutions you seek.
With the HIFU SygmaLift, we can target the 3 depths of skin barriers to stimulate collagen production and to give the skin a facelift and to retain moisture. By targeting the eyes, forehead and mouth, it has been clinically proven to stimulate bioactivity, remodel collagen fibres, promote oxygenation and regenerate tissue from the inside-out. This treatment is perfect for those looking to target uneven skin tone, saggy and dull skin.
This particular treatment incorporates Cold Laser technology. It might sound intimidating but it is a technology that has been studied and perfected for over 30 years. It is a low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing using low levels of light. The 635nm red laser works at the epidermis and the deeper subcutaneous tissue with causing harm to the surrounding tissues, causing no pain during treatment.
