What causes under-eye wrinkles?
The fine lines and wrinkles that appear around the eyes are likely one of the first signs of ageing that your patients will notice. Under eye wrinkles in particular may lead to a lot of self-consciousness surrounding a patient’s appearance. Lines and wrinkles occur under the eyes as the body ages and beings to produce less of the important nutrients and proteins that keep the skin hydrated and firm. Elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid are all essential in keeping the skin looking youthful, and age, along with environmental factors and lifestyle choices such as sun exposure and smoking can cause the skin in the under-eye areas to age prematurely. When these substances diminish, the skin becomes thin and weak. This, combined with repeated facial expressions and age-related volume loss, leads to the appearance of wrinkles under the eyes. Thankfully, under-eye wrinkles can be diminished effectively and quickly with cosmetic injections.
Why cosmetic injections for under eye wrinkles?
Cosmetic filler injections can be a great solution for diminishing the appearance of wrinkles under the eyes, particularly when used in combination with other cosmetic procedures such as Botox injections, laser treatment, chemical peels, or microneedling. Cosmetic injections are helpful in treating under-eye wrinkles because they are able to plump up and lift the skin, resulting in the lines and wrinkles being “filled.” Cosmetic filler injections can also help increase collagen levels within the skin as injections help to stimulate cellular activity. Cosmetic injections are a quick, provide immediate results, and are a minimally invasive non-surgical option that can lead to long lasting results.
