Anti Aging Eye Treatments
With age, your skin starts losing its ability to renew itself, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Since the skin around the eyes is thin, it is where the creases – one of the signs of aging – appear first. For many people, the psychological impact is one that evokes negative sentiments. Aesthetically, there is one thing you can do – that is to seek treatment for under eye wrinkles.
Types of Eye Wrinkles
Dynamic Wrinkles. Due to repeated muscle contraction underneath the skin, you will develop dynamic wrinkles over time. From the word itself “dynamic,” these creases only show up when your muscles are in use, such as when frowning or smiling. Typically, they develop between your eyebrows and on your forehead. You will also notice creases commonly known as Crow’s feet near the corner of your eyes.
Static Wrinkles. Over time, dynamic creases can become static wrinkles. These are creases that are visible even when your facial muscles are at rest. You might get under-eye static wrinkles if you are too exposed to the sun, have poor nutrition, and live an improper lifestyle.
Wrinkle Folds. As you get older, you will experience sagging of your facial structures, which causes wrinkle folds. Usually, it develops in the grooves between your nose and mouth, but may also occur underneath your eyes.

Gold Harmony Anti-Aging Clinic Aruba Under Eye Wrinkles Treatment Options
8 to 9 out of 10 women worry about fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, lack of firmness and eye bags. At Gold Harmony Anti-Aging Clinic in Aruba, in-house dermatologists and skin specialists offer several treatment procedures along with the use of proven skincare products for thin and sensitive skin.
Lack of moisture can significantly increase creases near the eye area. It follows that moisturizing the skin under your eyes can prevent the early onset or reduce fine lines and wrinkles. For many, applying face cream is the way to go – except that it is not as efficient as specially formulated eye creams.
Anti aging eye creams provide surface-level skin treatment. Due to high oil concentrations and low water content, they tend to be thick and heavy. As a result, the size of the molecules in the ingredients tends to be large, making them useful as a barrier on the skin, retaining the maximum amount of moisture.
Hundreds of anti aging products and under eye creams are available in drug stores and grocery stores nationwide. Do note that the effectiveness of each product varies. Moreover, the reputable brands formulate eye creams to work with your skin type – be it dry, oily, or a combination. If there is one good reason to use an eye cream, that is because it does not cause irritation in the skin around the eyes. Our dermatologists can help you cut through the plethora of choices by recommending one that works best for your skin type.
Compared to eye creams, serums are less vicious and contain less oil, which directly affects their application and finish on your skin. These products are generally highly concentrated with many active ingredients combating the signs of aging – eye wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, lack of and firmness.
Eye serum formulation is better absorbed by the skin. The active agents called “bioactives” are much tinier compared to eye creams, which means they can quickly penetrate the skin. One distinct advantage it has is that treatment is beneath the epidermis, which leaves no residue on the surface.
To avoid confusion, you can think of eye creams and serums this way. You use an under eye wrinkles cream to hydrate and retain moisture on the skin – a quick fix. However, if your goal is to treat skin discoloration, sagging, wrinkles, and other stubborn issues, eye serums are a better choice. These products penetrate deeply into the skin and have more boactives to help restore youthful-looking skin.
The benefits of infrared radiation are well documented. It increases collagen and elastin (Lee et al.), which counteracts skin photo aging. These devices have proven effective at eliminating sagging around and under the eyes by improving lymphatic drainage, beneficial to prevent swelling and puffiness. It is also proven safe, mild, and gentle to your skin, which will not hurt or burn facial skin but rather improve your looks and overall health.
LED light therapy has also proven effective at removing the under-eye wrinkles, puffiness and treating those dark circles under your eyes. Generally, it uses a monochromatic light from a laser that triggers your body to produce new skin cells and collagen causing the skin around your eyes to become noticeably smoother. Usually, you can buy LED light devices available over the counter for your home use.
