Skin Concerns

Under Eye Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles under the eyes are the physical signs of aged skin and are inevitable symptoms of the ageing process. Under eye wrinkles occur when the skin around the eyes becomes thinner and loses elasticity which can be accelerated by frequent sun exposure, smoking, repeated facial movements and certain genetic traits.

Fine lines and wrinkles under the eyes are the physical signs of aged skin and are inevitable symptoms of the ageing process. Under eye wrinkles occur when the skin around the eyes becomes thinner and loses elasticity which can be accelerated by frequent sun exposure, smoking, repeated facial movements and certain genetic traits.

There are two types of under eye wrinkles called dynamic and static lines. Dynamic lines are wrinkles caused by muscle movement and static lines are the lines that are present when the muscles are not contracted

The primary cause of under eye wrinkles is depleted levels of collagen found in the dermis layer of skin which is lost throughout the years. Collagen is fundamental in supporting the facial structure and responsible for keeping the skin youthful, where a diminished quantity can cause the skin around the eyes to depress, creating lines and wrinkles that become more visible over time. 

Symptoms
  • Lines under the eyes that can be fine or deep creases 
  • Crinkling of the skin around the tear duct 
  • Sagging skin
  • Crows Feet 
  • Sunken eyes
  • Increased darkness and puffiness under the eyes
Anti-ageing injectables

Injectable treatments are quick and popular procedures that reduce wrinkles without the invasiveness of surgery. During an under-eye wrinkle treatment, you can expect your practitioner to administer a small amount of natural solution (such as hyaluronic acid) into the skin to improve the appearance of the eye area, promote firmness and deliver a more youthful structure.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers can help to restore volume, lift, redefine and lighten the under eye area. There are many types of dermal fillers which may be more effective in treating different skin concerns. This treatment has mostly plumping, volume restoring properties and can work effectively in treating any gaunt, darkened under eyes, refreshing the eye area and softening fine lines. 

Dermal Needling 

This treatment is also known as a collagen induction therapy which punctures fine, tiny holes in the skin to encourage skin cell renewal and stimulate the body’s natural healing response. When this response is activated, collagen and elastin (two proteins that are fundamental in warding off wrinkles) are produced to create an immediate brighter, younger look. This treatment is also effective in reducing scarring, evening any pigmentation and UV ray exposure. This would be a good option to treat multiple concerns in one treatment.

Plasma Pen 

An alternative to eyelid surgery, Plasma Pen is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that can enhance the appearance of your skin. The plasma gas produced by the pen encourages the production of new cells and collagen to create rejuvenation, plump skin. Superficial wounds will be apparent on the skin, but will flake off in the days following the treatment to reveal gorgeous results.
