Large Pores and Dark Circles - Active Fx and Juvederm

February 21, 2008
Is there any surgical procedures to eliminate or greatly reduce either of these areas.
I have been given two different opinions so far by derms.
One did a micro laser peel on pores and under eye circles. Looked great for about two weeks. Then back to nothing. She recommends a stronger laser peel next time. She only did 20%.
I also had a consult with another derm. He offered that genetics are genetics. Nothing can be done for eye circles and the pores I am stuck with. He recommended a chemical peel once a month which would help to keep the pores open and clean, thus less visible.
I would love your input.

hi,
i think that there are more options than doing nothing or doing next to nothing.
if the under eye dark circles are due to indentations or loss of volume under your eyes (the "tear trough" area) juvederm can be used to fill that area up very nicely. the effect lasts for over a year and a half.
if you're talking more about the fine lines under your eyes, then i would suggest Active Fx. it will also take care of the large pores. this is a co2 laser that is new and very effective, especially under the eyes and for large pores.

    I am curious how one would go about correcting a cleft chin? Would Artefill work for this purpose? What other methods could be used?

    hi
    i have corrected clefts in the chin with radiesse, juvederm and artefill. it all depends on how deep the cleft is and on how long you want the the effect to last. its a great way to do it.
