The Eyes Have It!
What is the first thing you notice when you are looking into your mirror, or into your dear one’s eyes? Of course! The eyes! But eye treatments may be the last thing you think about when you think of anti-aging.
You get your vision checked and corrected; you protect your eyes from harm with goggles and sunglasses. But in anti-aging terms, the area around your eyes may be the most neglected. Because the skin around your eyes is 40 per cent thinner than skin on the rest of your face, it shows wrinkles and crow’s feet when your skin loses collagen over time. Improving the crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes and the tear troughs under your eyes can very easily rejuvenate your whole appearance. What eye treatments can help?
Eye treatments you should know about
Crow’s feet become more prominent over time, as your skin has less plumping collagen and skin becomes less elastic. Yes, prevention would be best, but we all are living longer, and aging is the major reason we get wrinkles. And avoiding lines and wrinkles by not blinking or smiling really isn’t an option! Do try to protect the eye area and minimize the environmental damage caused by UV rays and pollution!
Minimally-invasive eye treatments can work well. A traditional treatment for crow’s feet is a little Botox and a little filler. The Botox can reduce muscle movement and the filler will plump up the wrinkles. Microneedling and Venus Viva treatments allow platelets leaving blood vessels to excrete hormones and growth factors. As a result, the process stimulates fibroblasts and other collagen producing cells to start increasing their production, resulting in more elastic and rejuvenated skin.
A non-invasive treatment is skin-tightening Venus Freeze, prompting collagen production using heat to reduce the fine lines of crow’s feet.
Using a CO2 resurfacing laser will allow for production of new collagen and elastin as it renews the surface of your skin.
These eye treatments, individually or in combination, should improve the look of your crow’s feet as they rejuvenate your appearance.
Tear troughs, depending on your facial contour, respond well to dermal fillers that smooth the contour between your eye and cheek. Bags under your eyes? If they are puffy, fillers may help. If bags are discolored, injecting the filler deep in the skin may reduce the discoloration. Using a hyaluronic filler or platelet-rich plasma or fibrin can gently improve that delicate area under your eyes.
