The skin around our eyes is more delicate and thinner than other skin and the eye area often shows the first signs of aging. As we age, the skin becomes even thinner due to the decreasing levels of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. Also, due to the eye area skin having fewer sebaceous glands to keep the skin hydrated, the skin becomes drier than other skin.
This delicate skin requires more attention and care, so we have provided some of our top picks of treatments to help keep you looking bright eyed and alert.
Eye Concern: Hollow Tear Troughs
The Treatment: Restylane Dermal Filler
Description: The tear trough is a valley that sits atop the rim of bone that encircles the eye. Restylane is soft and clear and is an excellent way to treat hollow tear troughs. Additionally, a Restylane treatment can be reversed. If you are unhappy with the treatment after a few weeks, the filler can be completely dissolved with a simple injection of Hyaluronidase. Restylane results commonly last 6 to 12 months. See dermal fillers for tear troughs for more info.
Eye Concern: Dark Circles
The Treatment: Juvéderm Dermal Filler
Description: Dark circles under eyes are usually caused by hollowing in the “tear trough” zone due to volume loss caused by loss of fat in this area. The dark color occurs because this loss of tissue allows the deeper dark purple muscle layer to show through. Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid gel fillers that is commonly used to add volume back to the under eye, thus giving you a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. Juvéderm results generally last between 6 to 12 months. Learn more about Juvéderm under eye dark circle treatment.
Eye Concern: Lax or Sagging Skin
The Treatment: Laser Skin Tightening
Description: Our Laser Skin Tightening treatment uses radiofrequency energy to encourage elastin and collagen fibers in the skin. From the first treatment, the collagen fibers contract, giving the skin a tightened and firm appearance. See Laser Skin Tightening for more info.
Eye Concern: Crow’s Feet
The Treatment: Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Description: Anti-Wrinkle Injections offers a multi-solution to a very common eye concern. The injections temporarily relax facial muscles, preventing formation of wrinkles. This allows the skin to relax and smoothes wrinkles and lines that are currently present. See Anti-Wrinkle Injections for more info.
