Six Treatments that Get Rid of Fine Lines Around the Eyes (Part 1)
Facial lines around the eyes are a normal, natural part of growing older and wiser … but it doesn’t mean we have to like them! Fortunately, recent developments in anti-aging technology can now reduce and even reverse those wrinkles around the eyes that give away our age.
In this article we discuss the top four ways to treat wrinkles and lines around the eyes.
#1. Topical Treatments for Fine Lines around the Eyes
“Lotions and potions” are best for preventing wrinkles and fine lines before they occur. Moisturizers that are high in hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and retinol encourage cell regeneration and collagen production that keeps skin plump and supple.
WE offer a wide selection of topical wrinkle reducers at our Birmingham MI Med Spa. Stop in and we’ll help you choose what’s right for you.
Serums containing these ingredients typically are absorbed by the skin better than creams. However, once your lines reach a certain depth, you will need more than topical products to reverse or reduce them.
#2. Chemical Peels for Fine Lines around the Eyes
Glycolic acid facial peels are a “medium-grade” form of chemical peel, which means that they target the epidermis (outer layer) of your skin rather than penetrating into the deeper layers.
Glycolic Facial Peels come in a variety of strengths and can be used to reduce wrinkles and lines around the eyes. In addition to peeling away the top layer of damaged skin, Glycolic acid strengthens the deeper layers of the skin, which softens fine lines and gives a more smooth and “plumped” appearance.
Retinol peels are even stronger –and come as close as possible to being a truly “magical” anti-aging treatment. Retinol Facials improve skin smoothness, elasticity, luminosity and texture, and dramatically minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and elsewhere.
Retinal peels are best applied by an experienced aesthetician. Over the counter retinols are typically far less potent and effective. Additionally, when used improperly retinoids can be quite drying and cause skin redness and irritation.
We offer a wide variety of peels – including ZO glycolic acid peels and Obagi retinol peels. Come in to our Birmingham Med Spa and aesthetician will help you choose the peel that is right for your skin.
#3. Botox for Fine Lines around the Eyes
Botox injections are am affordable way to get rid of lines around (and between) the eyes. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that make a person squint – causing wrinkles and fine lines to relax and soften.
The total line-smoothing effects of Botox take place in a couple days – and last for up to 4 months. Meaning you only have to stop in for a quick injection 3 times a year!
