How to Get Rid of Wrinkles Under Your Eyes

Are the signs of aging taking their toll on you?

The development of wrinkles around the eyes can make us feel self-conscious. The good news: You’re not alone! Regardless of your age or lifestyle, there are options to help reduce these fine lines and wrinkles.

Following a few simple steps and techniques, you can improve the area around your eyes and reclaim your youthful appearance.

What Causes Wrinkles Under Your Eyes?

The skin under our eyes is particularly sensitive and prone to wrinkles, as it is thinner and more delicate than the rest of our face. A variety of factors, including age, sun exposure, genetics, lifestyle choices, and sleep position can contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

Age is one of the most common causes of wrinkles under the eyes. As we grow older, our skin loses its elasticity and moisture content, making it more prone to wrinkling over time. Sun exposure is also a major factor in the formation of wrinkles since UV radiation from the sun damages collagen and elastin fibers in the skin’s deeper layers, leading to premature aging and the appearance of lines and creases.

Additionally, genetics has an important role; some people are simply more predisposed to developing wrinkles than others due to their genes.

Lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking alcohol excessively or regularly consuming caffeinated drinks all contribute to wrinkles around the eyes. Sleeping on your side or stomach can cause facial expressions to be imprinted on your pillowcase which leads to wrinkles forming when you wake up in that same position every day.

Long hours spent staring at computer screens can also cause wrinkles under your eyes due to squinting when focusing performing tasks such as reading emails or online articles.

How to Get Rid of Wrinkles Under Your Eyes

Even though wrinkles are a natural part of aging, doesn’t mean they can’t be addressed! While wrinkles under the eyes can make you look older and tired, there are several options to rid them. Whether you’re looking for non-invasive treatments or body-safe ingredients, here are some top tips on how to get rid of wrinkles under your eyes.

Eye Creams with Vitamin E

Using eye creams with vitamin E is another great way to get rid of wrinkles under your eyes. Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties which helps protect skin from free radical damage which can lead to premature aging. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through its moisturizing effects.

When choosing an eye cream, it’s important that you opt for one specifically designed for use around the eye area as this will ensure it contains suitable ingredients for delicate skin.

Retinoids are derived from vitamin A and have been widely used in skincare products for years due to their ability to stimulate cell turnover, increase collagen production and even out skin tone. In terms of getting rid of wrinkles under the eyes, retinoid products can be extremely effective when used regularly over time as they help smooth out existing wrinkles while preventing the formation of new ones by improving the skin’s elasticity.

However, retinoids can cause irritation if not used correctly so it’s important that they’re only applied at night after thoroughly cleansing the skin.

Medical Aesthetic Procedures

If you’re looking for longer lasting results, there are several non-invasive medical aesthetic procedures which can help get rid of wrinkles under your eyes. Radiofrequency treatment and microneedling which stimulate collagen production in order to tighten skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles over time are great options.

Also, chemical peels are used to remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell regeneration resulting in a smoother complexion with fewer lines and wrinkles. Laser resurfacing is another option and uses a laser beam to penetrate deep into the dermis layer of the skin resulting in improved tone and texture while encouraging new collagen production which reduces the depth of the wrinkle(s).

Dermal fillers add volume to areas where fat has been lost due to aging or weight loss which contributes to wrinkle formation around the eyes. Hyaluronic acid is often used for this purpose to plump skin cells and provide hydration. This reduces sagging skin as well as smoothes out surface lines. To find the treatment that is best suited to your needs and goals, it’s best to speak with a qualified practitioner at The Best You® first.

During the surgery, excess skin around the eyes is removed to lift and firm the eyelid area. After the completion of the healing period, most patients do not experience any scarring or visible signs of the surgery. Just remember that it’s important to follow your surgeon’s post-surgery instructions including elevating your head during the recovery and healing period to optimize results and heal properly.

Blepharoplasty is an ideal solution if you’re looking to improve your overall facial harmony or simply rejuvenate the area around your eyes. With today’s minimally invasive techniques, there are fewer risks associated with surgery.

At The Best You®, we specialize in blepharoplasty. It’s a comprehensive solution to restore a youthful appearance without months of downtime to recover.
