There are many different procedures that have been developed to correct the appearance of Crow’s feet or wrinkles around the eyes but not many people understand why this area is so susceptible to damage and premature aging.

One of the first reasons is that skin around the eyes is much thinner and therefore a lot more sensitive. It is also harder to use sunscreen and other preventative measure near the eyes because of irritation and the possibility of getting chemicals in the eyes.

Harmful UVA and UVB rays can age this area a lot faster than more people realize. Wearing sunglasses on a regular basis is a good way to protect the eyes from harmful rays and therefore keep them looking younger.

Another way to combat imperfections around the eyes is to use topical creams and treatments but it is important to understand that many topical treatments do not provide the dramatic results many people are looking for.

LED equipment based treatments are extremely helpful but clients should expect multiple treatments and maintenance with topical products to maintain the results achieved with LED treatments. Depending on the severity of the wrinkles, it may be needed to go for more aggressive treatment options.

Dark circles are one of the biggest complaints most clients have. Dark circles occur as a result of hyper-pig­mentation. Hyper pigmentation happens as a result of inflammation, sun exposure and genetics as well as frequent rubbing of the eyes, or using harmful products.

In order to counter these effects, the skin must be lightened. Dark circles can also be caused by:

  • Allergies
  • Poor circulation, and
  • Lack of sleep.

Chemical peels are known to help with this issue as well as resurfacing treatments. Consuming certain vitamins and diet can also help with improving elasticity of the skin around the eyes.

There is a lot of science behind what is happening to our eyes, and why they look the way they do as we age. Understanding why these things occur is the key to prevention and treatment.
