This sensitive area requires very specific treatments and topicals that can powerfully re-hydrate, rejuvenate and re-model this area. The aim with under eye treatments is to improve the skin’s elasticity, remodel collagen, improve the circulation under the eyes and replace lost volume. This combination approach results in a younger, fresher looking eye area.
As we age, the skin under the eyes gets dry, becomes thinner and wrinkled and the veins in the lower eye area appear more prominent. The padding over the orbital bone is reduced and the lower eyelid skin lies pressed on the orbital bone giving the appearance of dark circles. Other causes of dark under eye circles can be attributed to lack of sleep, nasal congestion, chronic sinusitis, allergies, hormonal changes or certain medications.
Previously there were no treatments for this shadowing under the eye apart from home products and eye creams that improved the condition minimally.
Now, using a combination therapy approach, the fragile under eye area can be vastly improved by combining these incredible treatments:
- Under eye filler
- MD Codes for the eye area
- Laser Genesis
- RF Needling
- Monopolar RF
For further improvement of the eye area, should a patient already be showing signs of advanced ageing around the eyes, deeper treatments can be performed to remodel the collagen and elastin in this area resulting in advanced rejuvenation. These treatments include:
- Jett Plasma
- Pearl Fusion
- Fraxel DUAL
- Eye re-shaping treatments with injectables
While eye rejuvenation encompasses various treatments to correct concerns such as crow's feet, undereye bags, dark under-eye circles, and thinning skin around the eyes, the more recent trend is to use those same correction techniques and treatments to reshape the eye area.
Some of the most commonly requested eye reshaping treatments include:
- The Almond or Oval Eye (Also known as the upturned eye)
- The Fox Eye
- The Cat Eye
