Periocular rejuvenation is an evolving art and science. Recent advances focus on developing minimally invasive techniques where normal tissues are preserved rather than debulked/excised when possible. Since every face is different, the approach is tailored to fit individual needs as against the older one-size-fits-all principle. The following write-up focusses on introducing some basics of periocular rejuvenation to stimulate the first-time reader.
