4 Ways to Make Sure Your Eyes Aren’t Aging


Your eyes are one of the first places to show your age. From fine lines and wrinkles to puffiness and hollows, there is a procedure to turn back the clock and make you look younger. 

Dermal Fillers 
The aging process causes a loss of volume in the tissue under your eyes, creating hollows. Professionals use hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvéderm, to restore fullness and give you a more youthful look. If you choose to have fillers, choose a professional who is experienced and well-trained. Under-eye injections are an advanced procedure. 

Most people prefer to call them laugh lines, but crow’s feet are usually the first signs of aging and may show up as early as the 20s or 30s. Botox relaxes the muscles at the corner of the eye and keeps them from tensing, and you can see the results right away. The good news is that Botox also has the ability to keep wrinkles from forming at all. 

Laser Resurfacing 
Another sign of aging is crepe-like skin around the eyes. Laser resurfacing removes the outer layers of the damaged, dull skin cells and leaves a smoother, healthier glow. Pixel CO2 is a gentle formula that is safe for use on the delicate skin around your eyes, and it also encourage the production of natural collagen, which helps to tighten skin with a crepe-like texture. 

Eyelid Surgery 
Individuals with signs of aging that require more than these minimally invasive techniques may benefit from talking to a board-certified plastic surgeon. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can tighten loose and sagging skin and fat around the eyes, reducing puffiness and restoring a youthful contour.
