As the seasons change, so does our skin. The delicate skin around the eyes can often show the first signs of aging, such as wrinkles, dark circles, and under-eye bags.
Several eye rejuvenation treatments are available to refresh your look this fall. From dermal fillers to Botox and laser treatments, these non-surgical treatment options can help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
1. Botox Cosmetic: Relax Crow’s Feet
What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic is a highly sought-after non-surgical solution, effectively diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, notably around the eyes. Renowned for its quick results and minimal downtime, Botox Cosmetic offers a convenient way to achieve a smoother complexion without the need for invasive procedures.
How Botox Cosmetic Smooths Fine Lines and Wrinkles
When injected into the muscles around the eyes, Botox Cosmetic can relax crow’s feet, those pesky lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes. By temporarily blocking the nerve signals to the muscles and causing them to relax, Botox Cosmetic allows the skin to smooth out, reducing the appearance of these wrinkles. This results in a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
2. SkinPen Treatments: Exfoliate and Brighten
What is SkinPen?
SkinPen is a microneedling device that promotes the body’s natural ability to stimulate new collagen and elastin production, improving the health and appearance of the skin. This FDA-approved treatment is designed to reduce the signs of aging and enhance the skin’s overall texture and tone.
SkinPen Treatments Improve the Appearance of Wrinkles and Dark Spots
SkinPen initiates skin rejuvenation by creating controlled micro-injuries, prompting the body’s innate healing process. Over time, this can lead to a brighter, more radiant complexion while diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and even surgical scars. With regular SkinPen treatments, you can unlock the secret to a renewed and revitalized skin tone, helping you look and feel your best.
3. Ultherapy: Reduce Wrinkles and Laxity
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy utilizes non-invasive ultrasound technology to lift and tighten loose skin. It’s FDA-approved for use on the brow, chin, neck, and chest, but it’s also effective for addressing signs of aging around the eyes.
How Ultherapy Tightens and Lifts the Brow and Under-Eye Areas
Ultherapy delivers concentrated ultrasound energy to foundational skin layers without injuring the outer surface. This energy stimulates collagen production, which in turn lifts and tightens the skin. For the brow and under-eye areas, Ultherapy can reduce the appearance of drooping or sagging skin, offering a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures.
4. Fraxel Laser: Resurface and Refine
What is Fraxel Laser?
The Fraxel Laser is a non-invasive laser treatment that can resurface damaged skin and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. It’s effective for treating a variety of skin conditions, including fine lines and eye wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots.
How Does Fraxel Laser Treatment Work?
The Fraxel Laser works by creating tiny microthermal zones in the skin. The laser resurfacing process removes old, damaged skin cells and stimulates the body’s natural healing process, promoting the growth of new, healthy skin. When used around the eyes, the Fraxel Laser can improve skin texture and tone, and reduce the appearance of lines, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful look.
5. Skin Care Products: Rejuvenate Your Under-Eyes
Which Skin Care Products Should I Choose?
When selecting skincare products for the delicate eye area, look for formulas designed specifically for the needs of thin, fragile under-eye skin. Creams rich in hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid can help combat dryness and crepey texture. Eye serums with antioxidants such as vitamin C and caffeine brighten dark circles. Retinol-based products gently exfoliate to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Always choose products suitable for sensitive skin and do a patch test before applying anything new around your eyes.
Skin Care Products that Compliment Other Procedures
Procedures like Botox, Ulthera, and Fraxel Laser can enhance the eye area, but daily skincare is still important for maintaining results. Use a comprehensive regimen of cleansers, antioxidants, moisturizers, and sunscreens from physician-recommended brands like SkinMedica, SkinCeuticals, Obagi and SkinBetter. These medical-grade skin care products contain active ingredients at optimal concentrations to prolong your procedure’s effects.
Eye Rejuvenation FAQs
What is eye rejuvenation?
Eye rejuvenation refers to a variety of treatments and procedures aimed at reducing signs of aging around the delicate eye area. As we get older, the thin skin around the eyes is often the first to show wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, and loose or sagging skin. Eye rejuvenation can address these issues for a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
What is the best non-surgical treatment for eyes?
There are various non-surgical treatments or skin care products available to address under-eye bags and dark circles. One of the most effective options is Ultherapy. This non-invasive treatment uses focused ultrasound technology to gently tighten and lift the delicate under-eye area. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of under-eye bags caused by skin laxity. Consult with our team of experts at Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique to see if you are a good candidate for Ultherapy eye treatment.
How long do eye rejuvenation results typically last?
The longevity of eye rejuvenation effects may differ based on the particular treatment and the individual’s metabolism. For crow’s feet and eyebrow lifts, results from treatments like Botox can typically last from three to four months. For under-eye bags and tear troughs treated with fillers, the results can generally last around 12 months. However, it’s important to remember that results may vary, and regular maintenance treatments may be needed to sustain the desired outcome.
