Are your eyes aging you? The eyes are one of the first features that get noticed and one of the first areas of the face to show the signs of aging. The appearance of lines and wrinkles, drooping eyelids, thinning eyelashes, dark circles, and veins can convey tiredness, making you look more tired and older than you feel.
The skin around the eyes is thin with few sebaceous glands making this area vulnerable to dryness and sagging and more susceptible to faster aging than other features of the face. Genetics and repeated sun exposure can also contribute to an aging eye. Fortunately, there are many options to help keep the eyes looking young and bright.
Say Yes To Eye Creams
Protecting the delicate skin around the eye with a good eye cream is essential. Incorporating an eye cream can reduce puffiness, boost firmness, increase elasticity, and improve the appearance of lines and pigmentation. Protecting the skin around the eyes from UV damage is also crucial. If you have been skipping this step in your routine, now is the time to start! DLC Recommended Eye Creams: Colorescience Total Eye 3-in-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35, Alastin Restorative Eye Cream, and ISDIN K-Ox Eye Treatment Cream.
Neurotoxins, such as Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify, the newest long-lasting neurotoxin on the market, soften existing lines and wrinkles while preventing new ones from forming. Loss of volume under the eyes can give the impression of dark circles. A lightweight hyaluronic injectable filler, like RHA-A Redensity, smooths the skin underneath the eyes. The best part about fillers? You don’t need to wait weeks to see results!
It’s About the Collagen
Laser treatments stimulate collagen and are an excellent option for addressing crepey skin around the eyes. Laser treatments can also treat veins that suddenly appear more prominent as we age. Sciton’s Clear V laser will diminish the appearance of blue, purple, and red vascular veins that may arise under your eyes or cheeks.
Subtle Yet Powerful
You don’t know the difference eyelashes make to the eyes until they are gone. The prescription eyelash growth serum Latisse is the best for restoring full, lush eyelashes. The new Upneeq eye drop is a game changer for those with droopy eyelids. This newly FDA-approved eye drop lifts your eyelids for up to 8 hours, making you look refreshed and alert all day.
No more hiding your eyes! There are many options to rejuvenate your eyes, and one or a combination of these options can make all the difference in looking and feeling your best!
