Dark circles, under-eye puffiness, crow’s feet and dullness are some of our patient’s biggest concerns. This trouble prone area is comprised of delicate, thin skin that will show signs of aging before any other area. Fighting puffiness and wrinkles is not a lost cause. Preventing, reducing and even eliminating these signs of aging can be done successfully at any age with the use of dermal fillers, the latest in laser technology and medical-grade eye creams.
Dermal Fillers for Under-Eye Rejuvenation.
Under-eye dark circles and deep hallows develop as a result of thinning skin and soft tissue that lie over the bony orbital rim. The orbital rim is less visible in our youth because there is surrounding fat keeping it hidden. When our skin begins to thin out, the orbital rim becomes more and more noticeable, which results in the tired appearance we all want to avoid. Creams can help with wrinkles and pigment, but cannot take the place of lost volume. Dermal fillers will do exactly that.
Redensity II is the latest and greatest dermal filler made specifically for the tear trough area. It is the first nutrient rich dermal filler comprised of pure hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar produced by the body, and a dermo-restructuring complex of amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The treatment instantly improves texture, elasticity and hollows around the eyes. The treatment is very safe, virtually painless and can be done over a lunch hour. The results are instant and there is no recovery time, so you can return to normal activities right after.
Laser Resurfacing to Erase Fine Lines and Wrinkles.
Facial expressions like laughing and environmental stressors like sunlight, smoking, and air pollution contribute to the breakdown of the skin proteins, elastin, and collagen resulting in thinner skin, and crow’s feet. Laser resurfacing is one of the best ways to rebuild collagen and erase fine lines.
The Fractional Laser is a revolutionary skin resurfacing solution for improving the appearance of wrinkles and firmness around the periorbital area. The procedure evens out skin texture and tone, while repairing damaged skin cells and encouraging collagen production. The boost in collagen production results in structural improvements to the area months after treatment. The fractional laser tool works by selectively removing damaged skin cells through exposure to laser pulses in a pattern of tiny dots deep into the dermis. Most patients see dramatic results after a single treatment.
Always Use a High-Quality Eye Cream.
Moisturizing eye creams with physician strength ingredients provide gentle relief to tired eyes. Look for creams with vitamins and antioxidants as these ingredients help keep the sensitive skin around the eyes hydrated and protected from collagen damage. Putting under-eye cream on daily will brighten your eyes up and leave you looking more rested.
A powerful yet gentle hydrating formula such as the Youth Eye Complex by IS Clinical combines powerful peptides, key growth factors and potent antioxidants to quickly reduce wrinkles, puffiness and dark under-eye circles. This advanced eye cream features intelligent proteins clinically proven to target and regenerate damaged skin. This formula strengthens dermal structures and encourages the formation of collagen so that the area is able to fight off future damage.
Another great under-eye product is the Intensive Eye Therapy -The Eyes Have It! by Prescribed Solutions. This antioxidant-rich product has clinically tested ingredients that rapidly reduce the appearance of fine lines, dark circles and under eye puffiness. Kojic Acid and Arbutin effectively diminish pigmentation, while hibiscus flower peptides inhibit the factors responsible for forming crow’s feet.
If you opt to receive any treatment – dermal fillers or laser resurfacing – it is always recommended to use sunscreen every day and wear sunglasses when outdoors to protect and prevent future damage. For optimal, long lasting results, daily maintenance is required and further treatments may be recommended in the future.
