Nonsurgical Eye Rejuvenation: 3 Treatments to Improve the Appearance of Your Eyes

Posted September 19, 2023 in Non-Surgical Treatments

The eyes communicate a lot to the world: thoughts, emotions, moods, and — unfortunately — age. The skin around your eyes is extremely delicate, making it more susceptible to damage and visible effects of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, hollows, and dark circles.

While blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can alleviate many of these concerns, there are also nonsurgical options to consider.

1. Laser Therapy

Laser therapies are effective yet gentle enough to treat common eye concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, age spots, and sun damage.

ActiveFX/Deep FX™ Fractional Laser

The skin around the eyelids is fragile and more resistant to moisture retention than the rest of the face. This makes it easily damaged and difficult to repair, even if you take great care of your skin otherwise.

The ActiveFX™/Deep FX™ Fractional Laser is an effective skin resurfacing laser that is safe for use around the eyes, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation.

By heating the skin cells, this treatment stimulates collagen production, which naturally diminishes with age. Collagen is crucial for encouraging elasticity and moisture retention, two common concerns connected with the eye area. Increasing collagen allows the skin to repair itself more efficiently, minimizing wrinkles in this delicate area.

triniti™ Plus Treatments

Combining three powerful technologies (bi-polar radio frequency and light energies), triniti™ Plus treatments resurface and rejuvenate the skin for smoother tone and texture and a more youthful appearance.

2. Dermal Fillers

As we age, collagen production decreases, and skin laxity increases, often resulting in a loss of volume or plumpness in the face, under the eyes, and around the cheeks. This can contribute to a gaunt appearance with worn-down and tired eyes.

Dermal fillers are a category of cosmetic injectables that can restore volume to these hollow areas, creating a more youthful contour.

When administered by a licensed medical professional, dermal fillers help the hollows under the eyes that cause shadows and dark circles. The filler literally “fills in” the gaps, creating an even surface and eliminating the shadows.

Dermal fillers for eye concerns are about balancing the planes and contours of your face.

3. BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections have long been regarded as the gold standard of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. This neuromodulator isolates the underlying muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. When most people think of BOTOX® Cosmetic, they probably think of its applications for forehead and brow lines, but it is useful for all dynamic wrinkles, including crow’s feet.

Dynamic wrinkles are caused by movement and usually appear on areas of the face with the most expression, including the forehead, between the brows, and the eyes.

Crow’s feet appear due to repetitive eye movements and expressions. When you laugh, smile, or squint, those muscles are in use, and wrinkles can form. BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes these muscles and smooths the lines.

With regular treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic can actually prevent wrinkles around the eyes before they start, making this a great investment if you are considering early intervention for eye rejuvenation.
