The under-eye area is so important and the very first part of our face that shows signs of ageing, tiredness, and even health issues.
Noticeably, the skin around the eyes is very delicate and prone to dryness. Moreover, due to constant facial expressions, the skin gets stretched and consequently creates lines and wrinkles over time. In fact, the ageing process can also lead to hollows, bags, and shadows. As a result, this leads to a tired, aged appearance. Furthermore, many of us can be more prone to dark circles, under-eye bags, and even white spots (milia).
Indeed, we know that the under-eye area can make such a difference in how we look and how we feel. It can make us look younger, refreshed, serene and other types of emotions on how people perceive us and how we see ourselves. Of course, there are so many creams and serums on the market and we believe they can help but might not be enough.
That is why, we have concocted a deeper treatment for the eye area to help you look younger, fresh, confident, and serene.
Under-Eye rejuvenation combines a range of treatments to improve the signs of ageing around the eyes. Our comprehensive approach to eye rejuvenation addresses all elements of ageing rather than simply targeting lines and wrinkles. Indeed, there are several reasons for under-eye ageing, such as, for instance, loosening of the skin, weakening of soft tissue structures around the eyes, bone loss, and a tear through deformity.
Depending on the condition, we create a bespoke Under-Eye Treatment for each individual and that might involve:
We will discuss the most appropriate course of treatment based on the underlying problem, needs and desired outcome. Moreover, we are committed to achieving natural-looking results and giving honest opinions on treatments that we deem appropriate.
You do not need to have fillers however if the treatment option involves filler, then:
Time: 30 mins
Recommendation: The number of sessions will depend on the condition and the bespoke treatment created for the patient.
The skin that we have on the eye contour is very thin and more delicate, it is a highly vascularized area that tends to retain liquids due to the limitation of drainage. Moreover, the inevitable loss of collagen means that wrinkles and fine lines appear first around the eyes. In addition, as collagen decreases, veins show through more prominently, increasing the advent of dark circles. And finally, the skin under the eyes also fills more easily with fluid, which can lead to puffiness around the eyes.
Fortunately, we can thwart early-onset eye aging with adequate treatments. Read on for five common problems:
Causes: Thin skin, diminished collagen
Causes: Loss of collagen, too much squinting from direct sun exposure, or excessive work in front of the computer.
Lifestyle Solutions: Avoid direct sun and wear sunglasses; if you do a lot of close work in front of the computer, take frequent rests—5-minute breaks every 30 minutes.
Cause: Stress, lack of sleep and hormones, as well as allergies that trigger the release of histamines in the body, which in turn inflame blood vessels and cause swelling.
Cause: Heredity and age are the major causes. With age, the ligaments underneath the eyes that hold back fatty tissue begin to weaken, and the tissue can fall forward to form under-eye bags. Yet another cause is the stillness of sleeping—your circulatory system moves more slowly during sleep, leaving excess fluid beneath the eyes. A stressed or sleep-deprived body can prevent your circulatory system from flushing out this extra fluid, even after you’ve been awake for a while.
Cause: To determine the cause of your dark circles, gently stretch the skin under your eyes. If the area becomes darker, then the circles are probably due to thin skin and diminished collagen. If the color doesn’t change, UV rays causing hyperpigmentation are probably the problem. Blood that accumulates under the eyes, often due to poor circulation or lack of sleep, can be more obvious in fair or thin-skinned people, especially as fragile capillaries stretch and leak.
Dark circles underneath the eyes might appear for a number of reasons. As said, some of the factors that contribute to the presence of dark under-eye circles include fatigue, sun damage, eye strain, dehydration, allergies, genetics, and age.
These conditions can lead to the blood vessels underneath the eyes widening and cause the skin itself to become thinner and paler. This ultimately results in the blood vessels becoming more visible, creating the appearance of a darkened under-eye area. The efficacy of a specific treatment is completely dependent upon the underlying reason for the dark under-eye circles.
Some individuals have facial anatomy that consists of a crease between the upper cheek and the lower eyelid region. This crease is called a tear trough. Tear troughs can cast a shadow that creates the appearance of a darkened under-eye area, making one look tired or prematurely aged. A tear trough deformity such as this can be corrected with a simple, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment utilizing dermal fillers.
Even if the dark under-eye circles are unrelated to the presence of a tear-through deformity, NAR LONDON is here to help.
