Here’s how you can rejuvenate your eyes for a fresh new look.
When your eyes sparkle, so do you.
If your eyes cause you to look tired, you’re not alone. It’s natural to notice deeper tear troughs, fine lines, wrinkles, and drooping eyelids over time. As collagen production decreases, it’s normal to notice aging in the periocular region (the area surrounding the eyes). Whether you’re looking to brighten up with a simple non-surgical treatment like BOTOX COSMETIC® or considering an eyelid lift or other surgical option, our team is here in Waterloo, ON, to provide options and guide you through some great solutions.
Where can I find a solution for my eye concerns?
We love helping patients find transformative solutions. That’s why booking a consultation with us is the perfect place to start–even if you’re not sure what treatments will work for you. We’ll begin by assessing your concerns. Some patients have concerns like undereye shadows or deep tear troughs, while others are looking to smooth lines and wrinkles or address puffy eyelids. Whatever your aesthetic problem, a consultation is the perfect place to start. We’ll offer you great solutions and help guide you into a next step that lets you look and feel your best.
What are my non-surgical options?
As you’ve likely already heard, it’s important to treat the delicate eye area with great care and a gentle touch. The skin in this area is thinner and more likely to crease, lose elasticity, and show signs of aging than in most other areas.
You’ll want to choose high-quality, medical-grade skincare products that protect, nourish, and improve your whole eye area. Ask us for skincare recommendations and to build a regimen that helps treat signs of aging and simultaneously prevents future damage. (Learn more in this blog post.)
Injectables and more
There are many different options for non-surgical eye treatments. Popular choices include:
- LATISSE® is an at-home eyelash treatment that can help you enjoy a beautiful, bright-eyed look. This treatment is popular with our patients because it quickly brightens up the appearance of the face with longer, thicker lashes.
- Laser treatments are also incredibly effective at treating eye concerns like sun damage or wrinkles to restore fresh, youthful skin.
- Dermal fillers can fill in tear troughs and hollow temples to rejuvenate the eye area.
- BOTOX COSMETIC and other wrinkle relaxers help smooth out crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines between the brows for a refreshed look.
Many of these treatments can be combined to optimally brighten, enhance, and restore your appearance without the need for downtime or surgery.
What are my surgical options?

Balance is incredibly important in surgical procedures, and this is amplified when we’re targeting such a highly visible part of the face. Our surgeons will walk you through every step of the process–from consultation and surgery, to recovery and the joy of seeing your new results.
An eyelid lift, technically called blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that corrects heavy, sagging, or wrinkled eyelids for a more youthful appearance. This surgery can treat the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. For some patients, Dr. Shenker may recommend a combination surgery of upper eyelid surgery and a forehead or brow lift to smooth lines and maximize results.
