Are you starting to notice crow’s feet and fine lines forming around your eyes? Whether you call them ‘laugh lines’ or ‘character lines’, there’s one thing for certain: as soon as they become visible, you just want them to disappear!treating eye wrinkles
Your body contains different types of skin, and unfortunately the skin around your eyes just happens to be the thinnest. Think about how easy it is to damage and wrinkle tissue paper; this is comparable to the skin around your eyes. Therefore, it’s the first part of your body to show the signs of aging.
While you may know that your face requires different products than your body, you may not realize that the skin around the eyes has its’ own requirements as well. Because this area is privy to fine lines and wrinkles, you need to use the right products to help firm and hydrate this sensitive area. Here are a few things you can start incorporating into your daily regime and start minimizing the appearance of eye wrinkles immediately.

Cleanse
Most cleansers are not gentle enough for your eyes and can irritate the skin due to their alkaline content. You also want to avoid using store-bought soaps as they may contain lards or fats that can block pores or cause dryness. We recommend using a fragrance-free gentle cleanser like the ones we carry from ProDerm or Osmosis. These lightly remove dirt to clean and nourish delicate areas around the eyes.

Resist
Many of us rub our eyes without even realizing it. Remember that tissue paper? Rubbing it profusely would cause it to wrinkle in no time, and the same can be said about the skin around you eyes. Whenever possible, try to keep your fingers away from this area of your face and always make sure to pat your eyes gently when drying instead of tugging at them with a towel.
Moisturize
Since the skin around your eyes has little fat, it’s important to use an eye cream that not only moisturizes, but strengthen and firms. Look for products that promote collagen and elastin production like the Osmosis Quench Intense Hydrator or the Colorescience Anti-Aging Serum.
Another great product from Colorescience is the Pen Up Pen. Containing a tri-peptide formula in a liquid crystal base, a few strokes around the eye helps to increase the appearance of firmness and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This can also be used around the mouth, which is another trouble spot for the signs of aging.
Protect
Sunscreen should be a vital component of your daily regime. Even if it’s raining and cloudy outside, the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays are still present and can penetrate the skin, which can then causes fine lines to occur.  We offer a wide selection of Colorescience Sunforgettable products that double as both protection and make-up. To find out which shade best matches your skin tone, feel free ask our medical estheticians for help.
Sleep

There’s a reason they call it ‘beauty rest’. Your body uses this time to repair damaged skin cells. Therefore, the most shut-eye you get, the more you’re allowing your body to naturally prevent and fight the signs of aging.
Skin Tightening
For those stubborn lines we offer Skin Tightening services which are extremely effective, especially in the early stages of skin aging. Using the skin tightening (ST) module on the Sciton Profile Broad Band Light machine, pulses of light and energy reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ST’s prolonged heating action penetrates to the collagen and causes it to contract and tighten it. To learn more, Dr. Catherine Fischer explains in this this video.

As you get older, your needs start changing. Remember those days when you lived in a dorm and scraped by on minimum wage? Now you’re looking for three bedroom homes and driving a minivan. Our lives change, develop, and require more attention. The same goes for your skin.
No matter how old you are, we’re going to share how you can take care of your skin at every age. No surgery or scalpel required.

Tools, Tips, and Products to Take Care of Your Skin at Every Age

 

20’s
skin at every age

You may think that you only need to worry about your skin as you get older, but taking preventative measures now is the best way to ensure your complexion stays as youthful and smooth as possible.

Skin tends to become a little drier in your twenties, which causes your skin to over produce oils. This could lead to breakouts (thought those days were left in high school??). Also staying hydrated as well as ALWAYS wearing SPF will help prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
We recommend:

  • Microdermabrasion to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells and leave a smooth texture

30s
skin at every age

Unfortunately you really start developing fine lines and wrinkles in your thirties. This is because collagen and elastin start to break down, and towards the end of the decade, age spots and brown pigmentation may start to appear.

We recommend:

40s
skin at every age

Since your skin also doesn’t rebound as quickly as it did when you were in your 20s and 30s, you might notice skin sagging. Those under eye circles may also turn into pouches.

We recommend:

  • Pep Up Pen from Colorscience, an eye and lip tri-peptide formula that will help increase the appearance of firmness and reduce fine lines and wrinkles while plumping up delicate tissue.
  • Polish Enzyme Firming Mask, a mild exfoliating mask that gives skin a smooth, healthy appearance after each application.
  • Skin Tightening to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

 

50s
skin at every age

Because of menopause, there is less estrogen in the skin which means the lines you developed in your 40s transform into skin folds. Your skin is also more much delicate and fragile from age 50 and above.

We recommend:

  • Flawless Face Photo Rejuvenation Package, a combination of Microdermabrasion, photo rejuvenation, and skin tightening. This trifecta all work together to reverse the aging process and the results are amazing! The Flawless Face package is currently discounted at 40% off! Call us today to learn more and book while this offer lasts.
  • Quench Intense Hydrator is a lightweight moisturizer with maximum hydration designed for mature, dry, and irritated skin

 
We truly believe that age is only a number; how you feel on the inside is all that matters. However, we also know how important it is to take pride in your appearance. Growing older isn’t something to dread, but rather to look forward to, especially if you have your skincare down pat.
