From as young as 30, crows feet, or lines around the eyes can start to develop. These can be a cause for concern for both men and women, who feel that these lines make them appear much older than they really are. So naturally, concealing these lines, and reducing their appearance is a key focus for many people. But with so many different ways to tackle lines around the eyes, choosing the right option can be a challenge. Here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we offer a range of professional and effective facial treatment options, including anti-wrinkle injections. As a result, we have produced this guide to the treatments available to reduce the appearance of crows feet, and other lines around the eyes.
Different ways to reduce lines around the eyes
So, how can you reduce the appearance of lines around your eyes? Well, there are several things you can do, including:
Using retinoids – Retinoids are full of vitamin A, and a range of creams and treatments have been developed with the sole purpose of reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A can be a key component to helping to repair and hydrate your skin.
Wearing sun cream – sun cream is vital for protecting the health of your skin. Too much exposure to UV will leave your skin weaker, and dehydrated, which will accentuate any lines that might be present. If you start wearing sun cream now, you can prevent these lines from becoming more prominent.
Chemical peels – one of the treatments we offer here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic is a chemical peel. There are a range of different peel options to choose from, but they all work in the same way. The chemical is applied to your skin, where it removes any dead skin cells and the outer layer of the skin, causing deep exfoliation and the production of new skin cells to replace the old. As fine lines are only developed in the outermost layers of the skin, removing these can also remove the wrinkles too, in the short term.
Mesotherapy – mesotherapy can be very useful for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the eyes. Mesotherapy involves injecting vitamins, amino acids, and minerals into the mesodermal layer of the skin, where it will hydrate and repair your skin cells. This is another treatment option we can offer, here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic.
Anti-wrinkle injections – the best way to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes is to opt for anti-wrinkle injections. This is a long lasting treatment option that can help you look younger for up to 6 months, before a top up will be needed. These injections work by relaxing the muscles around your eyes, so that the skin will not be frequently pulled in different directions, and instead, the skin can rest and reset. This will leave your skin looking smooth and any wrinkles or fine lines will be much less noticeable.
