Ageing of the Eye Area
The skin around the eye ages in a number of ways requiring different interventions:
Problem 1) Loss of volume underneath the eye – the ‘tear trough’ as we call it can for some be a problem from a young age, for others this happens with maturity. Grooves, darkness, and sunkeness can all result from this loss of volume.
Solution 1) Tear Trough filler. The gentle introduction of a hyaluronic acid filler by way of a cannula can help soften the impact of the groove, reduce the darkness and leave you looking less tired. This treatment lasts around 9 months and for many a couple of treatments will have a much longer lasting effect
Problem 2) Creases around the sides of the eyes and underneath caused by the action of the muscle lying underneath the skin.
Solution 2) Wrinkle reduction injections. Wrinkle reduction injections will soften the action of the muscle, reducing the formation or deepening of lines. This treatment also works by opening up the area to provide a more refreshed look.
Problem 3) Skin texture starts to appear dull, crinkly and loses its ‘bounciness’.
Solution 3) Collagen stimulation. Using an oral collagen supplement such as Collagen Shots will help stimulate your body’s ability to produce more collagen. You can also consider stimulating treatments such as Wow Fusion or adding in a quality eye cream such as ZO Eye Intense Cream.
Problem 4) As we age the skin loses elasticity. This can be especially noticeable in the eye area with heaviness in the skin that used to appear taught.
Solution 4) Blepharoplasty. The main way to address this is surgical. You can opt for surgical blepharoplasty or the non surgical plasma option.
