The skin around your eyes can give away your age better than almost any other part of your face. This is mainly because aging diminishes the amount of subcutaneous fat in your face, making that blueness under the surface more visible above the skin. It doesn’t help that under-eye skin is 40 percent thinner than the rest of the face to begin with. When you combine that with the fact that blood vessels in that area tend to weaken and leak, the result isn’t pretty.
In the words of New York City dermatologist Dendy Engelman, “You’ve got blood pooling underneath transparent skin, so it can be very noticeable.” These techniques are proven to help alleviate those dark circles under your eyes to restore youth to your skin and wipe away that look of chronic exhaustion.
Fix Brown and Black Pigmentation With Light Peels
Pigmentation damage occurs when sun damage, too much eye rubbing, and genetics combine to leave the skin around your eyes looking brown and black. If you can stretch your skin without the color changing, then you definitely have a problem. The best solution comes from a professional who can provide safe but effective chemical and glycolic acid peels. Over time, the unwanted skin pigment will break up and leave the delicate skin under your eyes looking more natural. Plus, as a bonus, the rest of your skin will look radiant as well!
Hide Veins and Renew Volume with Dermal Fillers
Thin skin makes it much easier to see the veins underneath, something that many women prefer to avoid. Dermal fillers are now FDA-approved to boost collagen production and thicken the skin around the eyes. Hyaluronic acid fillers are some of the most popular because only one treatment is needed to enjoy results that last anywhere from six months to two years.
The same goes for volume loss under your eyes, which often occurs from the loss of fat pads, collagen, and bone. Rather than endure a shadowed, hallowed look under your eyes, you can inject a hyaluronic acid formula to fill in the hollows and grooves with natural volume.
With these solutions, you will look ten years younger in no time at all.
