Do you miss your youthful look?
Sure, you’ve learned some tricks of the trade in the hair and makeup department over the past 20 years, but there’s only so much you can do at home to turn back the clock.
For a while, good concealer and over-the-counter creams did the trick. But now you find yourself wondering how to make your eyes look younger since these products no longer seem to help.
If you look in the mirror and can’t help but notice glaring wrinkles around your eyes, don’t lose heart! Younger looking eyes are a real option, and we can show you how to get rid of lines under your eyes… without surgery.
Younger Looking Eyes Mean a Younger Looking You
Learning how to make your eyes look younger means you have a way to look younger all around. The eyes are also the first thing that you notice when you look in the mirror… and the first thing others notice when they look at you. Unfortunately, as we age, that means people are seeing our most wrinkled area first.
The area around the eyes has been damaged even more than other places because it’s almost always exposed to the sun. Around the eyes, the skin is thinner, which means it’s more sensitive and shows lines and wrinkles more quickly.
The eyes are also an area of tension lines. Here, the skin on our cheeks, nose, eyes, and forehead converge creating tension across the area. Because of the combination of thin skin, sun damage, and tension, the eyes become one of the first places to show wrinkles.
Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes is a game changer. The area that wrinkles quickest and that people see first looks younger and fresher — bringing youth to your entire look.
How to Get Rid of the Lines Under Your Eyes Without Surgery
There’s not just one way to get rid of these lines under your eyes. You have choices when it comes to deciding how to make your eyes look younger. Surgery is an option — but it’s not the only one. Botox injections, skin treatments, or chemical peels may be better for you.
Botox is one of the best known methods for eliminating wrinkles around the eyes. It’s a toxin that we inject directly into the area to paralyze the muscles pulling on the skin that create crow’s feet and wrinkles around your eyes. And it’s quick — the entire procedure takes 15 minutes or less.
How much Botox it takes to make your eyes look younger varies by person. Typically, patients need treatments every three to four months to keep wrinkles under control, but that time can vary as well. We recommend patients come back when they start to notice the wrinkles again.
InterFuse Treatment Cream EYE
This skinbetter daily treatment cream offers a daily option for fighting lines under your eyes. Patients looking for younger looking eyes find great results with morning and night application of this product.
As you’re weighing the costs of different options for how to make your eyes look younger, plan for this product to last around three months.
Invisilift 3-Minute Mask
Before a big meeting, interview, or family photo session, Invisilift 3-Minute Mask provides a quick fix. When you need to look your best for a special occasion, this treatment offers a way for you to provide an instant lift to your skin that lasts up to 12 hours. We don’t recommend using it everyday, but it’s a great solution when you need fast results.
We also have the option to diminish lines and wrinkles around the eyes with a chemical peel. The VI peel is one of the safest and most gentle peels available — making it a great option for the area around the eyes. We recommend three peels a year — no more than one per month for three months. After that, we’ll evaluate if you need another round of peels the following year.
How to Make Your Eyes Look Younger (Before They Get Worse)
The best way to get younger looking eyes is to prevent the damage before it gets any worse.
Whether you’re 20 years old and finally buying your own sunscreen, or 50 years old and trying to stop any more damage from happening, it’s never too late to start applying sunscreen daily and diligently. It’ll work to keep the structure of your eye in tact (so all those angles don’t get saggy!), keep wrinkles at bay, and help prevent skin cancer.
Choose a sunscreen with SPF 50 or higher and apply your sunscreen daily — whether you’re going to be indoors or out. For days inside the office, makeup with sunscreen works as an effective protection for our skin and requires no extra steps in your morning routine. But, if you’re headed outdoors, opt for an extra layer of a higher SPF sunscreen. Make sure to apply it gently around the eyes, protecting them from wrinkles yet to come.
Don’t settle for wrinkles. Crows’ feet and laugh lines don’t have to be the first thing people notice about you. It’s time to figure out how to get rid of the lines under your eyes. Contact us today to schedule a consultation for younger looking eyes.
