Fact: your eyes experience aging before any other part of your face. The skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate, and as you come into your 30s, this skin becomes even more fragile due to the loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid that comes with aging and other extrinsic factors (sleepless nights, heavy drinking and non-stop partying sure don’t help). Fragile skin means more fine lines around your eyes, crow’s feet, dark circles and those dreaded eyebags. And you’ll soon discover that slathering on eye cream and slapping on cucumber slices are not effective enough to bring back the youthful vitality to your peepers.
At a certain age, this delicate area around your eyes needs some extra attention and TLC. To keep your future looking bright, try a radio-frequency treatment like Thermage Eyes. This non-surgical procedure (no downtime, too) stimulates the production of collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother and gently lifted skin. It’s perfect for those with eyelids that are starting to droop or for those whose laugh lines are becoming more prominent. Thermage Eyes can also help smoothen puffiness or eyebags.
Dark undereye circles may need something a bit more invasive. As you age, you lose volume and fat in your tear troughs, causing the skin to sink and shadows to form underneath your eyes. The sad thing is, no amount of concealer can cover up this hollowness. But what makeup can’t achieve, science can. A small layer of expertly applied hyaluronic acid filler like Restylane or Belotero is all you need to lift the delicate skin up and to create an optical illusion of smoothness. Getting fillers pose very little downtime—you may look a little red and bruised for a day or two—and pretty soon your undereye area will appear noticeably brighter.
Belo also recommends combining Thermage Eyes with fillers for the ultimate anti-aging treatment.
