Unfortunately, age and gravity don’t always work together.  As we get older and our skin gets thinner, we frequently see the areas around our eyes start to sag downward.   The sagging around the eye area can give the impression that you are angry or upset, when that might not be the case at all.

A Brow Lift not only lifts the area around the eyes, it can also reduce the wrinkles that develop across the forehead and across the bridge of the nose (between the eyes).  In addition, a brow lift can…

Part 3: Our Favorite Skin Care Products

November 28, 2016
