If there’s one part of the face that will give away your age, it would have to be eyes.
The delicate and translucent skin surrounding the eyes makes it more susceptible to damage from the sun and harsh environmental elements that contribute to the appearance of crow’s feet. And the eyelids are no exception — the upper lids can significantly droop with age, while puffiness in the lower lids can create the illusion of dark under eye circles.
Formerly, you’d have to opt for eyelid surgery to address any of these issues. But now, advancements in non-surgical cosmetic procedures allow patients to take years off of their eyes without surgery.
Not all eye creams are created equal
Although genetics play a major role in a person’s inclination to develop crow’s feet and dark under eye circles, specially formulated eye creams may help reduce their appearance. Find an eye cream specifically designed to moisturize the skin surrounding the eyes; extreme dryness in the area can lead to the premature appearance of crow’s feet. Robin White, our licensed aesthetician, is skilled and experienced in helping you choose the right medical grade skincare products from NeoCutis, Osmosis and SkinCeuticals.
Consider the injectable
Botox injections can make crow’s feet disappear by relaxing the underlying muscles that cause the wrinkles. The procedure itself is quick — usually 15 minutes — and desired outcomes will be visible in 5 to 7 days and will last from three to six months. Meanwhile, hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane Silk can fill in hollow tear troughs and eliminate the shadows that are typically perceived as dark under eye circles. The duration of results can vary, but results last an average of between 9 to 12 months.
