What is the best cosmetic treatment for under eye wrinkles?
The skin under your eyes is thin, sensitive, delicate – and highly prone to premature aging. The age-related changes usually start off small, with a few fine lines. But over time, those lines deepen into severe wrinkles, and when combined with puffiness and saggy skin, they can make you look rundown, tired, and much older than you actually are.
In addition to age, the health of your skin plays a role in the visibility of wrinkles. Certain supplements can improve your skin’s health. Probiotics, for instance, can help keep your skin hydrated and contribute to an overall healthy glow by banishing unfriendly bacteria, pollution, and free radicals that accelerate the aging process. Another supplement to try is chromium picolinate fiber, which reduces insulin levels in order to boost your body’s production of glycosaminoglycans—a chemical that keeps skin hydrated and increases collagen production.
Eye creams and serums are a great way to help prevent wrinkles from forming, but they don’t do much about the ones that are already there. Fortunately, you’re not stuck with them forever, because there are a number of cosmetic treatments available to rejuvenate your eyes and revitalize your look.
From laser therapy to intense exfoliation, here’s a rundown of your best bets for banishing under-eye wrinkles.
- Botox injections
Squinting and smiling cause the muscles around your eyes to contract, which can lead to crow’s feet and under-eye wrinkles. Botox works by reducing movement in these muscles, smoothing out those dynamic wrinkles and giving you a younger appearance—and all it takes is a quick ten-minute treatment. A small amount of Botox is injected beneath the skin, providing results in one week or less.
- Dermal fillers
Another reliable, simple, and efficient way to smooth out under-eye wrinkles is with dermal fillers. Injectable gels made with hyaluronic acid, such as Restylane and Belotero, are effective in eliminating fine lines and reducing sagging. By plumping up the area beneath the skin and encouraging natural collagen growth, dramatic results are visible almost instantly, and in some cases, can last up to a year.
- IPL Photofacial
Treat under-eye wrinkles while transforming your complexion with the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial. Designed to treat skin imperfections associated with sun exposure, including freckles, dark spots, and fine lines and wrinkles, an IPL Photofacial uses focused laser light energy to break down damaged cells deep beneath the surface, encouraging new growth with a smooth, even texture. This non-invasive treatment requires no recovery or downtime, and after three to five sessions, you’ll experience total facial rejuvenation.
If your skin is dull and creased with under-eye wrinkles, microdermabrasion can help replenish and refresh your appearance. Microdermabrasion uses ultra-fine crystals to exfoliate your skin, sloughing off the outer layers to reveal the new, smooth, younger-looking complexion underneath. Not only can microdermabrasion treat fine lines all over your face, but it can also reduce the appearance of acne scars and improve uneven skin tone.
- Chemical peels
There are a variety of chemical peels designed to treat different skin conditions, and medium to deep peels can address mild to moderate facial wrinkles. Chemical peels work by causing the dry, damaged top layer of your skin to flake off, allowing new healthy skin to take its place. It can take from three to ten days to heal completely and see the full effects of a chemical peel, but the vibrant, youthful results are well worth the wait.
