Under eye wrinkles are a common cosmetic concern for many people as they can make you look tired, or older than your age. These appear when the skin under the eye loses elasticity and volume, which is a natural part of the ageing process. The lack of elasticity allows the skin to form wrinkles and lines underneath the eye, especially in line with expression movements. So what are the effective treatment options for under eye wrinkles? And how can these help?
What are the effective treatment options for under eye wrinkles?
There are a variety of treatments available to reduce the appearance of under eye wrinkles, including chemical peels, dermal fillers, and topical treatments.
Chemical peels for under eye wrinkles
A chemical peel is a sort of exfoliation procedure in which the skin is exposed to a slightly acidic solution that allows the outer layer to be removed. This can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing the topmost layer of dead skin cells, and triggering skin cell rejuvenation. Chemical peels can be applied to the skin around the eyes to help reduce wrinkles and enhance the skin’s tone and texture. Chemical peels are available in a variety of forms, from light peels to extensive peels.
Glycolic acid peels are effective for treating minor fine lines and wrinkles, but phenol peels are better suitable for treating more severe wrinkles and sun damage. It’s important to work with a professional aesthetic practitioner to determine which type of peel would be right for your skin.
Dermal Fillers for under eye wrinkles
Dermal fillers are generally made from hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally throughout the human body, and in the skin, where it plays a vital role hydrating the skin cells and adding volume. However, as a natural part of the ageing process, this natural volume can be lost, and this is often more noticeable under the eyes. As a result, dermal fillers are a popular option for treating under-eye wrinkles because they can make the skin look younger and less wrinkled, by replacing the lost volume for smooth, plump and youthful results. During the procedure a small needle is used to inject the filler into the skin, at precisely the right point, and the effects are frequently seen right away. Dermal fillers have long-lasting benefits that can last up to a year.
Topical treatments for under eye wrinkles
Topical treatments can also be incredibly beneficial for tackling under eye wrinkles. These treatments include creams, serums, and gels that are applied directly to the skin, where the active ingredients will get to work. These active ingredients help to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that is important for keeping the skin firm and elastic. Some common ingredients in topical treatments for under eye wrinkles include retinoids, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid.
