Protect Your Eyes Through the Harsh Winter Months Beverly Hills, CA
Eyelid and Eyelashes

These days it is common knowledge to wear sunscreen and sunglasses in the sunny summer months. Not only does this protect your eyes from UV damage and help prevent skin cancer, but it also reduces squinting that causes wrinkles and the sun damage that can make those wrinkles worse. The damage can take decades to show up and make you appear much older. Although understanding the summer risks is helpful, UV rays are still a threat during the winter months, and it is important to continue protecting your eyes.

Wear Your Sunglasses All Year
UV rays do not disappear when a sky is overcast. This is true no matter where you are, but it becomes even more dangerous if you are an outdoor enthusiast. The UV rays reflect off snow, creating a greater risk of long-term sun damage. It does not matter if you stay in the city or climb to great heights. Ensure your sunglasses are UV-blocking and polarized, and wear sunscreen formulated for use on the eye area.

Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes
Rubbing your eyes is something you want to avoid all year. It stretches the delicate skin, which can lead to drooping and wrinkles. In winter, the wind and cold can dry your cornea and cause a gritty feeling, leading to eye rubbing. Proper sunglasses keep the elements out, and moisturizing eye drops can remove the gritty feeling.

Stay Hydrated
Nothing puts fine lines and wrinkles front and center like dry skin. Once the heat is on, indoor air can be incredibly drying. Staying hydrated is the first step, so ensure you are drinking plenty of water throughout the day. A humidifier can help keep the air moist and your skin plump. Avoid products that cause excessive drying, such as retinol. Use gentle, fragrance-free cleansers and moisturizers formulated for the eye area.

If your fine lines and wrinkles do not respond to these basic steps, it may be time to speak with an oculoplastic surgeon. There are many treatments available to address fine lines and wrinkles on eyelids and the surrounding area. For natural-looking results and a youthful appearance, contact the office of Dr. Kami Parsa today.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
