1. I am troubled by my dark circles below my eyes. I have tried different eye creams but to no avail. I was told that surgery can get rid of the eye bags but can surgery actually get rid of dark circles as I do not have eye bags? How much does the surgery cost?
Yes, surgery can improve dark eye circles but may not remove them completely. Another alternative if its due to pigmentation is to use specialized lasers. This may require multiple treatments. You will need to be examined for the appropriate treatment to be advised.
2. I have single eyelids, but I want to apply more than one colour on my eyes. How do I that?
The key is to use the correct shades and put the colours in the right places. It is very simple and easy to do, Apply the lighter shade from the last line to eye socket and then apply the darker shade to crease at the outer corners of the eyes to create a V, then blend the two colours and you will see the optical amazing effect.
3. One of the commonest concerns affecting Asian women especially of oriental origin is the absence of a double fold, which is very often seen in Caucasians. Many women come to see me to create a double eyelid fold. How do this?
There are a few ways to achieve this: The simplest way is to place a few internal stitches in the eyelid tissue where the new fold will be created. This technique is simple and, gives good results. Recovery is fast.
However, it may not be long lasting and sometimes the folds can disappear after a period of time. A more long lasting method is via surgery to cut the skin, remove some fatty tissue and place deep stitches internally. This is called open blepharolasty and although the recovery time is longer, the results are long lasting.
It is important to remember that the fold that is created should not imitate the Caucasian look, but rather enhance the beauty of the oriental eye.
