Under-eye wrinkles and crow’s feet are a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean they need to stick around! At Perfect Skin Center, we take advantage of the many advancements in aesthetic medicine to deliver numerous eye wrinkle treatments to help our clients effectively combat the signs of aging around their eyes.
Understanding Wrinkles Around Eyes
Your eyes are particularly susceptible to wrinkles because the skin there is so delicate. The skin around your eyes is vulnerable to damage from the following:
- Environmental factors
- Lifestyle habits
- The aging process
Each of these contributes to fine lines around the eyes, under-eye wrinkles, and crow’s feet. You might even be dealing with the additional trouble of eye bags, making you look perpetually tired or older than you are.
The Role of Aging and Skin Elasticity
As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity and becomes thinner and more delicate. This loss of elasticity, combined with years of repetitive muscle movements around the eyes from frowning, squinting, and smiling, contributes significantly to the development of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Furthermore, the production of collagen and elastin, which are proteins responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin, greatly decreases with age. This decline in production causes sagging skin and the formation of fine lines and deep wrinkles.
Eye Wrinkle Treatments: Exploring Your Options
Fortunately, several eye wrinkle treatments effectively address eye-related issues. You can choose the right one for you with our help.
One of the most renowned treatments for eye wrinkles is Botox. Botox is an FDA-approved treatment that works by temporarily paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles, which creates a smoother, more youthful appearance. Botox is especially beneficial for the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes, like crow’s feet.
Dysport is another neuromodulator, similar to Botox, that can treat fine lines around the eyebrows to enhance a youthful and better-rested look.
Jeuveau is a newer treatment we use to minimize unwanted fine lines around both the eyes and the brows for a fresher appearance. This is an excellent option for those who want to address fine lines around the eyes without surgery.
Restylane is an injectable gel designed specifically to improve sunken eyes, which frequently contribute to a haggard, exhausted appearance. By adding volume to the under-eye area, Restylane can help reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and wrinkles, making you appear to be more rested and refreshed.
Silhouette InstaLift is a non-surgical approach to rejuvenating lax facial skin. This treatment utilizes threads to lift the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.
Skin Rejuvenating PRP
Skin rejuvenating PRP harnesses the power of your very own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve the texture and tone of your skin and increase collagen production. Collagen is a protein in the body that aids in the strength and elasticity of your skin. By stimulating new collagen production, your skin rejuvenates itself and minimizes the appearance of fine lines around the eyes.
Xeomin is an injectable designed specifically for frown lines, which are the deep horizontal lines between the eyebrows. Similar to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin works as a neuromodulator, blocking the release of chemicals that cause muscle contractions and smoothing out the skin. Xeomin can also aid in reducing the appearance of crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
Bellafill is a long-lasting dermal filler injectable typically used to enhance the cheeks and add volume around the face. Bellafill can be incorporated into a treatment plan to fill in fine lines around the eyes.
Another useful dermal filler is Juvéderm, which can add volume to targeted areas of the face and help reduce the appearance of under-eye wrinkles and eye bags.
The Y-Lift is a non-surgical facelift that helps enhance youthful contours and facial definition. By including the Y-Lift in your treatment plan, you can minimize the wrinkles around your face, including your eyes.
Which Treatment Is Right for You?
When it comes to choosing the right treatment to eliminate or reduce fine lines and wrinkles under and around the eyes, it’s not a question of which treatment is better than another. Instead, it’s about designing a custom treatment plan tailored specifically to your unique needs.
The treatment plans we generate for our clients are never exactly the same. Each client has unique needs, which means the types of treatments we use, the number of units, and the location of the treatments vary.
Depending on your skin situation, we may use a combination of fillers and neuromodulators to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Maybe only neuromodulators are used, or maybe only fillers are needed.
The way we determine which treatments to include in your plan is through a consultation. During the consultation, we assess the state of your skin and analyze the problem areas you want to address. We also discuss your aesthetic goals so that we can make sure the results are achievable and ensure that you have realistic expectations. Once we have a better understanding of your situation and the look you’re going for, we can deliver a custom treatment plan outlining our recommendations.
