How to Get Rid of Under Eye Wrinkles Fast and Safely
Probably the first sign of aging is those tired wrinkles under your eyes. They expose themselves without warning like little imps come to steal your youthful presence. These unsightly furrows are more a result of thin skin than age, but they make you self-conscience none the less.
There are several treatments available to rid yourself of these unpleasant eyesores. You want them gone because your eyes are the focal point of your face!
What Causes Under Eye Wrinkles?
Whether you call them smile lines or crow’s feet, they have revealed themselves before their time. The reason for their appearance is because your body has lost its ability to replace elastin and collagen proteins which keep your skin supple, pliable, and smooth.
When people look at you, your eyes are the first thing which grabs their attention. Its aging’s cruel joke to allow this area to be the first place where facial creases form.
The real reason for these wrinkles is the skin around our eyes does not replace moisture like other facial areas. With constant rubbing and touching, its natural deterioration is quicker. Add repetitive motions from laughing and squinting, and wrinkles are apt to form.
The most notable reasons for under eye wrinkles are:
- Facial activity
- Sun exposure
What Gets Rid of Them – Quickly?
Okay, now that we have focused on what causes under-eye wrinkles, let’s look at treatments which get rid of them. There are multiple treatments available, some more invasive than others.
Lasers affect the skin surface which is where wrinkles form. The use of short pulses of fine laser light penetrates your skin into its lower layer sparking collagen and elastin production. With a mild wounding of the skin surface, the old skin will flake revealing a fresh, smooth, more youthful skin which is firmer and more pliable than the older skin it replaces.
There are different Laser treatments with different levels of severity, so a visit to a dermatologist or medical spa is recommended for consultation.
Injectable dermal fillers provide various filler gels which pump up the skin temporarily. These are usually natural components like hyaluronic acid (a natural sugar) which is effective in adding volume under the wrinkles to smooth out the skin. They last until your body naturally expels the filler from your body.
This injectable is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world and for a good reason – it works quickly! Results are realized right after injections. Botox is not a filler, but rather it paralyzes the muscle to cease activity which causes lines and wrinkles.
When you make facial expressions, they leave indentions in your skin tissue which cause fine lines and wrinkles. Botox blocks the muscle’s ability to move when you smile, laugh, or frown, so the lines disappear.
This treatment uses small diamonds to scrub and exfoliate, leaving your skin newer and fresher. The process will remove dead skin and promote skin healing which will stimulate collagen and elastin production.
LED Light Therapy
This treatment is a relatively new technology which is optimal treatment because of its comfort and ease. There is no downtime, no risk and it can’t be overused. The treatments are so safe, that LED light devices are available for home use.
With multiple treatment regimens, LED light therapy will provide a gradual improvement to skin health and facial appearance. It will diminish fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and other imperfections leaving you with skin health and beauty.
