Under Eye Wrinkles

Under eye wrinkles are relatively hard to treat when compared to hollow tear troughs. They will typically require a multitude of treatment options to achieve the best results and will typically involve more than 1 treatment session.

Will antiwrinkle injections work for under eye wrinkles?

Antiwrinkle injections injected very superficially may improve under eye wrinkles but this has to be done with extreme care. Generally experienced injectors will avoid injecting in this region as it is antiwrinkle injections here may affect your smile muscles leading to an uneven smile, change your eye shape negatively or cause worsening of under eye fat bags. Small doses, however, may improve the wrinkles slightly Added to this is the fact that under eye wrinkles are often static in nature, meaning that they are present at rest and not made worse with movement. This means that antiwrinkle injections are less likely to be effective

Lasers for under eye wrinkles?

Ablative and non-ablative lasers are great for improving under eye wrinkles. Both types of lasers stimulate collagen. Non-ablative lasers often have less downtime and redness will settle after a day or two. Ablative lasers on the other hand have more downtime. Fractional ablative lasers will leave dots on your skin that will settle after approximately 4 days while full-field ablative lasers can take a month to settle but will lead to the most dramatic results. Full-field ablative lasers are generally reserved for more advanced wrinkling.

PRP for under eye wrinkles?

PRP can be great for improving skin quality. It is not great at providing volume however. PRP under the eyes works by releasing growth factors that can stimulate new blood vessels, new collagen, and generally promote an environment that leads to healthy skin

Micro-needling for under eye wrinkles?

Micro-needling is another great option for under eye wrinkles. To be effective the tiny needs need to penetrate to a depth that fibroblasts (collagen making cells) are located. This often leads to a slight amount of pin-prick bleeding and several days of redness. We find that compared to radiofrequency microneedling, regular microneedling has a similar downtime, less pain and is less expensive. It is also safe for all skin types unlike radiofrequency microneedling.

Skincare for under eyes?

Skincare with vitamin A, B and C can be great for under eyes as these will stimulate the production of your body’s own collagen. These must be taken for months to see the benefits to the skin (so don’t evaluate the results too early) but are probably not as effective as the other methods listed. Please consult your doctor/aesthetician for the best protocol as the under eye skin is very sensitive and must be handled with care.
