Treatment for Eye Wrinkles


If eye cream can only delay aging at most, what other methods are there to treat eye wrinkles?

To treat eye wrinkles, like other wrinkles, the cause of their formation must first be determined. Is it due to skin dryness? Dynamic wrinkle movement? Skin laxity? Or is it due to aging of the skin? Different causes naturally have different treatment methods. Therefore, if someone introduces a treatment that can address all types of eye wrinkles, everyone should be careful and cautious.

Let’s first discuss how to treat dryness-induced eye wrinkles. Because the skin around the eyes produces less oil, it is prone to dryness and the appearance of wrinkles, especially in the autumn and winter seasons. It is essential to moisturize the area by regularly applying eye cream. This method is straightforward, as almost all eye creams contain moisturizing ingredients that can improve dryness. Of course, you should choose an eye cream that suits your skin type because ingredients that are too oily may clog pores and cause oil granules. Generally, people with abundant oil secretion around the eyes should choose eye care products with a refreshing texture and less oil. At the same time, be aware of seasonal changes. Although eye creams with heavier oil content may not be suitable for spring and summer, they may be useful during the fall and winter seasons.

If eye wrinkles are caused by dynamic wrinkles, that is, wrinkles caused by facial expressions, injecting botulinum toxin can relax the muscles and reduce wrinkles. The effect can usually be seen a few days after injection.

As for eye wrinkles caused by laxity, tightening treatment is required. Other chapters in the book introduce tightening treatments, which can be viewed if interested. The treatment mainly uses radiofrequency needles to tighten the subcutaneous tissue around the eyes. Note that the skin around the eyes is thin and delicate, making it prone to burns. Readers must choose safe instruments and treatment centers.

The last type of eye wrinkles is caused by aging. This is due to the decrease of collagen and elastin in the skin as one ages, causing the skin to gradually lose its elasticity. Hormonal changes and a slower rate of cell metabolism can also contribute to this. To address this, lasers that increase collagen production are used. Fractional laser is a powerful treatment that can improve fine lines. Readers can pay attention to the chapter on fractional lasers.

It is emphasized here that eye wrinkles are relatively easy to treat compared to other eye problems such as eye bags and dark circles. The key is to treat the problem accordingly. Prevention is better than cure, and this applies to cosmetic medicine as well.
