Wrinkles around the eyes, commonly called crow’s feet, and other concerns such as eye bags, are a natural part of the aging process. Skin laxity around the eyes can cause you to look more aged and tired. If you are looking for treatments that will help reduce crow’s feet, under-eye wrinkles, or bags under the eyes, you have many different options with our service in Jacksonville Beach, FL.
At Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville, we offer solutions to improve the texture of your skin, reverse the appearance of aging around your eyes, and make these areas healthier, smoother, and more vibrant so that you can have a more refreshed appearance. With our eye wrinkle treatments, we look forward to helping find the right solution for you.
What Causes Wrinkles Around Eyes?
As we age, our skin becomes thinner and less elastic. One of the main factors of skin laxity is a decrease in collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that provides both structure and elasticity to the skin, helping it to appear smooth and feel firmer. As we age, our bodies produce less of this protein which can lead to thin or wrinkled skin. External factors such as UV exposure, smoking, dry skin, or poor nutrition can cause wrinkles to appear sooner on the skin.
Eye Wrinkle Treatment Options
Eye bags and wrinkles can be treated with a variety of different options. Some of our treatments help your skin to produce more collagen and elastin to help make the skin appear more youthful. Other solutions can help minimize lines caused by muscle movements in the face. Still, others can provide underlying structure in the skin by filling out areas that have lost volume. During our consultations, we will help determine which of these treatments may be right for your eye bags and wrinkles.
Botox is a neuromodulator that can be used to treat dynamic wrinkles that are caused by facial expressions. The botulinum toxin is injected into the muscles around the eyes, temporarily relaxing them and preventing the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles.
Botox is FDA-approved to treat crow’s feet and can offer three to four months of smoothing results. This treatment is a good option for patients who are primarily concerned about deep expression lines rather than fine lines or under-eye bags.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that use a gel-like substance to restore facial volume. This volume can help restore volume that has been lost due to decreasing fat pads or loss of collagen. Dermal fillers are sometimes used to add volume to the tear trough area to decrease dark circles and create a more refreshed appearance. Dermal fillers are typically made using hyaluronic acid, which is biocompatible and can be absorbed by your body over time.
IPL and Laser Resurfacing
If you have fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, laser resurfacing can be one of the best eye wrinkle treatments to help renew the texture and appearance of your skin. We use a wide variety of laser and IPL technologies to treat fine lines around the eyes, wrinkles, and texture concerns and restore a more youthful and glowing complexion. Some of our IPL and laser eye wrinkle treatments include:
- Laser Genesis: The laser genesis is a non-ablative laser that helps to treat fine lines and wrinkles by heating the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which can reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
- LimeLight® IPL: IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, delivers a series of intense pulses of light to the skin around the eyes. This energy is converted to heat, and this heat causes the skin to contract and stimulates collagenesis in the skin.
- PicoSure™ Laser: PicoSure is another non-ablative laser that can provide wrinkle reduction along with other benefits for the complexion. It delivers short bursts of energy to the skin which can help encourage cell regeneration and improve skin elasticity.
- Pearl™ Fractional: Pearl Fractional is an ablative treatment that can treat aging or photodamaged skin. The device delivers tiny beams of light that ablate the skin in small pinpoint areas while leaving the surrounding skin alone, prompting a healing reaction and collagen production.
- The Cutera Titan: This non-invasive laser treatment can tighten and firm the skin around the eyes using infrared light energy.
Removing the outer layers of the skin can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and encourage more collagen production in the skin. Chemical peels are treatments that allow for the outer layer of skin to be removed through the use of a chemical solution. We offer several different peels that can be used on people with different skin types to enhance skin texture and reduce fine lines around the eyes.
RF Microneedling Treatments
RF microneedling with Secret™ RF combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling technology to provide skin tightening. These treatments can be used around the eyes to minimize under-eye wrinkles, diminish eye bags, and restore skin tightness around the eyes.
Topical Skin Care
