Dark Eye Circles, Periorbital Wrinkles, Under-Eye Bags, Under-Eye Hollowness and Creases
The layer around the eyes is 40% thinner and loses moisture of up to 50% faster, compared to other areas of the face. Stress significantly contributes to wrinkles and under-eye dark circles.
Dark Eye Circles
It occurs from the accumulation of melanin in the epidermis layer due to genetic influences, allergies, ageing, stress and lack of sleep.
The Q-Switched Ruby Laser is the most effective treatment in breaking down the dark pigments into smaller particles, after which the toxins are naturally eliminated through the body’s process. Vascular Laser is another form of treatment utilised to alleviate abnormal blood vessels, without harming the surrounding skin tissues of the treated area. It eliminates the blood vessels that cause the appearance of dark circles around the eyes.
Ageing and poor lifestyle choices significantly contribute to the breakdown in collagen and elastin, where the skin around the eyes become inflexible and less firm.
The skin layer that causes wrinkles must first be determined in order to undertake an effective treatment that in turn produces positive results. Static and fine lines are treated using the Fraxel Dual Laser technology. The laser produces heat energy which increases the production of collagen, resulting in a naturally even tone and smoother looking skin. The Skin Tightening Forma and Skin Tightening Titen FX Radio Frequency (RF) technologies also aid in the reduced appearance of wrinkles and restoring firmness around the eyes.
Eye Bag Grooves Underneath the Eyes
Eye bags are caused by the accumulation of water and fat around the eyes. Throughout the ageing process, the collagen and elastin begin to deteriorate resulting in the upper skin layer to sag, and developing into eye bags. The grooves are caused by the collapse of the missing bone underneath the eye, and the collapse tissues of both the fat and muscle layers contribute to these occurrences. This results in aged looking skin, making an individual look much older than they are.
Ulthera treatment can be undertaken on the saggy skin around the eyes due to the deterioration of collagen and elastin underneath the skin. A micro-focused ultrasound technology is utilised to increase the production of collagen and elastin around the skin layer of the eyes, through lifting the sagged eye bags.
The Skin Tightening Forma and Skin Tightening Titen FX Radio Frequency (RF) technologies also helps reduce wrinkles, restores firmness around the eyes, increases the production of collagen and stimulates blood circulation. Another method is the utilisation of the HA Filler, which can smoothen the skin surrounding the eyes.
