Causes and treatments for fine lines around the eyes

Nov. 25, 2022

Our skin changes as we age, and the process actually starts much earlier than we think, usually in our twenties. Fine lines under the eyes and from the outside corner, develop as a natural part of ageing, and while they can be upsetting, they’re usually much less noticeable to others than they might be to you. But many of us do spend longer than needed examining our skin in the mirror whilst possibly engaging in self deformation talk. This is why providing expert advice on skincare and treatment

What causes fine lines under the eyes?

Fine lines around and beneath the eyes, including ‘crow’s feet,’ happen as a result of the normal ageing process. As we grow older, the skin around the eyes becomes thinner and loses elasticity, which contribute to causing fine lines and small wrinkles. While not grounds for concern, fine lines can affect our confidence.Most of us will experience fine lines and wrinkles eventually, but they can be brought on prematurely and worsened by lifestyle factors such as smoking, frequent sun exposure and unhealthy eating. Fortunately, there are many effective treatment options, all of which can dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes. If you’re concerned about this issue and want to discuss the right treatments for you, book a call with me today.

Can fine lines under eyes be reversed?

Thankfully, there are quite a few things you can do to reduce the appearance of fine lines around your eyes. This includes making lifestyle changes, following a tailored skincare programme, and having the right treatments. Here are some of my expert tips for reversing fine lines and tightening the skin under your eyes:

Have a skincare consultation

The best place to start, regardless of the severity of your fine lines, is to book a skincare consultation with a specialist. A good skincare consultation will involve learning what skin type you have, about potential causes of your skin concerns and pinpoint the right treatments for you. The causes of fine lines and wrinkles range from poor skincare to allergies, so sitting down with me to understand your skin better can help us move forward in the best possible way. I will design a personalised skincare regimen that supports your beauty goals and protects your skin going forward.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections (Botox)

Anti-wrinkle injections (Botox) are the gold standard for treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. The active ingredient in the injection temporarily blocks the signals that cause the muscles to contract, this relaxes the muscles and prevents the excessive movements that cause wrinkles.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel can drastically rejuvenate your skin and refresh your complexion. By removing dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new cells, skin peels can be an effective way to diminish the appearance of fine lines around the eyes.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an excellent way to plump up the skin around your eyes and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers improve volume and make your skin firmer and smoother. The high levels of hyaluronic acid in the filler replaces this a naturally occurring protein which is responsible for youthful and elastic skin.If you’d like to find out more about the right treatment for your skin condition, give me a call and book a consultation.
