Beautiful Eyes Reverse Signs Of Aging Around Your Eyes
What Can I Do To Address the Hollowness Underneath My Eyes? How Can I Fix the Dark Circles Or Wrinkles?
One of the first places where visible signs of aging begin to emerge is around the eyes. The common complaints for people as they age is the appearance of wrinkles, bags, hollowness or sagging skin. The skin around the eye area is the most delicate and extremely thin, therefore we tend to see the first signs of aging in this area. Patients interested in improving the appearance of the skin around the eye area have many options. With so many creams and different treatments patients may get overwhelmed on what may be best.
Concern 1 Under Eye Discoloration
Some people suffer from dark under eye circles, and this may be due to a variety of factors including heredity, lack of sleep, aging, sun exposure and certain medications. The most effective eye creams are those that contain peptides and growth factors such as Lumiere by Neocutis and TNS Eye Cream by Skin Medica.
A Broadband SPF 30 is also recommended for the face to help prevent sun damage and wrinkles from environmental exposure. These products over time help build your own collagen to thicken the skin below the eye and lighten and brighten the area.
Concern 2 Lines Around The Eyes
As we age, wrinkles tend to form on the corners of the eyes. This may be due to overly used facial expressions over time, collagen loss and heredity. Neurotoxins such as Botox, Xeomin or Dysport can work well in helping raise the eyebrows, which in turn help the appearance of the eyes. The injections block the nerve signals that cause facial muscles to contract and this ultimately results in localized reduction in muscle activity in the treated area for example around the eyes commonly referred to as Crow's Feet. In addition, hyaluronic acid (dermal filler) can improve deeper lines in the crow's feet.
Concern 3 Sunken Eyes or Loss Of Volume Under The Eyes
Dermal fillers are suitable to help plump up the skin under the eyes to help with dark circles and volume loss. The tear trough is an area that
commonly forms a depression as people age and if there is significant weight loss.
Concern 4 Lax or Loose Skin Around The Eyes
Lasers are a great non-invasive way to improve skin laxity and smooth wrinkles around the eyes. Lasers, such as the fractional resurfacing CO2 and Erbium lasers, smooth and tighten the skin, and can be combined with the use of radio frequency treatments, which can help build fresh new collagen.
The fractional CO2 also termed as the “laser eye lift” helps take away damaged skin and helps tighten the skin. Radiofrequency treatments, such as Accent XL, are non-invasive treatments with no down time that help tighten the skin around the eyes using bipolar and mono-polar radiofrequency energy.
These stimulate your body to produce natural collagen giving you natural results and softening the appearance of fine lines.
