Seven Treatments that Get Rid of Fine Lines Around the Eyes
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.
At AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI we offer the latest and most advanced aesthetic treatments to reduce lines and wrinkles around the eyes – taking years off your appearance!
#1. Topical Treatments for Fine Lines around the Eyes
Moisturizers that are high in hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and retinol encourage cell regeneration and collagen production that keeps skin plump and supple. Serums containing these ingredients typically are absorbed by the skin better than creams.
We offer a wide selection of medical grade topical wrinkle reducers at our Birmingham, MI Med Spa -including wrinkle reducers from top clinical skincare brands Zo Skin Health and Alastin. We also recently added top-of-the-line, science-based skinbetter products to our skincare offerings. Stop in and we’ll help you choose what’s right for you.
However, “lotions and potions” are best for preventing wrinkles and fine lines before they occur. Once your lines reach a certain depth, you will need more than topical products to reverse or reduce them. That’s where are many advanced skin tightening and wrinkle reduction treatments come into play!
#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 an aesthetician will help you choose the peel that is right for your skin.
#3. Botox for Fine Lines around the Eyes
Botox injections are an 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 a few times a year!
#4. Microneedling for Fine Lines around the Eyes
During microneedling an aesthetician uses a special devices with fine needles to puncture tiny holes into the skin. These tiny “wounds” start healing, producing newer, younger skin and stimulate collagen production. And for patients who wish the ultimate in anti-aging microneedling, we now offer revolutionary Morphues8 to – a state-of-the-art skin remodeling and contouring treatment that simultaneously offers skin regenerating microneedling, while delivering deep radiofrequency thermal energy to melt fat stimulate natural skin rebuilding.
While some people do try to microneedle themselves at home with DIY kits, a person can hurt themselves, get an infection, or permanently scar or damage their skin, if it’s done improperly. For this reason, microneedling should always be done by a professional in a sanitary clinical setting like our Birmingham Med Spa.
Additionally, at-home, over-the-counter microneedling does not penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin like medical grade microneedling does! And, we combine microneedling with professional grade anti-aging serums, specially formulated and tailored to each client to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
#5. Laser for Fine Lines around the Eyes
Fraxel lasering resurfaces your face for smoother, brighter, non-wrinkled skin. Fraxel is a revolutionary laser technology that resurfaces skin, and “turns back the clock”. Fraxel lasers use heat energy to create mild ‘trauma’ within the skin that stimulates the body’s natural repair mechanisms – resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin, for smoother, tighter, firmer skin..
Fraxel laser is a state-of-the-art alternative to previous “ablative” laser resurfacing techniques, which vaporized the skin surface – which then slowly re-grew. Fraxel preserves the integrity of most of the skin surface – resulting in far less discomfort as well as eliminating downtime than older generations of laser wrinkle treatments.
#6. ThermiSmooth for Fine Lines around the Eyes
ThermiSmooth, is another non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that tightens skin, reduces wrinkles and restores a youthful appearance.
ThermiSmooth works by applying radio-frequency heat to the face. This stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen beneath the skin, which plumps and tightens the face and smooths out fine lines around the eyes.
#7. CO2RE laser for Fine Lines around the Eyes
For the latest technology in skin resurfacing and wrinkle reduction AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI offers the most advanced technology: the Candela CO2RE fractional laser. This skin resurfacing treatment dramatically reduces wrinkles by removing the dead, dull, aged top layer of skin tissue, while simultaneously stimulating cell regeneration with a fractional laser.
In addition to smoothing out lines and wrinkles, the CO2RE laser can reverse sun damage, remove spots & pigmentation, and reduce scars from injury, acne or surgery.
