Our eyes are the “windows” into who we are and are one of the regions that patients most seek aesthetic advice. Fortunately, we have many treatment options for the eyes. There are multiple approaches to different parts of the eye anatomy and it is certainly not a one size fits all regions in which one procedure will work for all problems. At Surgical Dermatology Group, Dr. Harmon is trained to properly assess exactly what the underlying problem is and then recommend the most appropriate treatment.

Many patients ask about what they can do to prevent or treat the lateral lines that emanate from the lateral canthus of the eye, otherwise known as “crow’s feet” lines. This area is particularly amenable to treatment with Botox cosmetic and a dramatic improvement can be achieved with this approach. Oftentimes, there are persistent fine etched lines, even after Botox that may be treated with more superficial fillers.


Other patients want to improve the “tired” look that they feel they have under their eyes. Botox again works in this area very well to treat the “crepe tissue paper” skin that is sometimes present under the eye. Deeper fillers can be used to treat the tear trough that runs from the medial corner of the eye down the cheek and accentuates the “bags” under the eyes. Many patients find this to be a wonderful solution for improving the “dark circles” present under the eye and may avoid a more extensive surgical procedure.

Overall the eye is a wonderful area to treat because we can consistently insure our patient’s satisfaction. We will work our very best to make you look your very best.
