Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but how do you feel about the beauty around your eye?
Some say the eyes are the window to your soul. Whether this is true, we don’t know. But we do know that your eyes can say a lot about you. And if they’re saying something different from what you want them to be saying, it’s time for SmoothEye laser skin rejuvenation.
As people age, their faces begin to show signs of wear and tear. The skin around our eyes becomes thinner and more sensitive as well. This makes us look older faster. Fortunately, there are ways to slow down these changes in appearance. One way is with SmoothEye laser treatment.
The first sign of aging around the eye area is crow’s feet lines on the outer corners. These wrinkles appear when muscles contract involuntarily during facial expressions such as smiling or frowning. They also occur from repeated squinting or blinking. As the years go by, crow’s feet become deeper until they form permanent creases.
Another common sign of aging around the eyes is dark circles. Dark circles develop because blood vessels beneath the surface of the skin constrict, causing reduced circulation. Less circulation means less oxygen, which leads to darker-looking bags underneath the eyes. Over time, dark circles will deepen into deep grooves.
The last major change associated with aging around the eyes is sagging below the lower eyelids. Sagging occurs due to loss of collagen fibers. Collagen provides support to keep the skin firm and elastic and provides skin-tightening benefits. When collagen levels decrease, the skin begins to sag.
Collagen is important to your skin because it helps maintain moisture balance within the epidermis. Without enough collagen, water evaporates too quickly, leaving dry skin behind. Dryness causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear sooner than normal. It also increases sensitivity, making the skin more prone to irritation.
Wrinkling happens naturally over time, but certain factors accelerate its development. For example:
Smoking: Cigarette smoking damages cells throughout the body, including those found in the lungs. In addition, nicotine stimulates production of free radicals that cause damage to DNA. Free radical damage results in premature wrinkling.
Sun exposure: Ultraviolet rays penetrate through the top layer of skin called the stratum corneum. Once inside the dermal layers, UV radiation breaks chemical bonds in proteins and fats, creating free radicals. Exposure to sunlight accelerates the rate at which these chemicals break apart, leading to accelerated wrinkle formation.
Stress: Stress affects every part of the body. If stress continues long term, it may lead to premature aging around the eyes.
Genetics: Some people have inherited genes that make them susceptible to developing early signs of aging around the eyes. People who carry these genes often experience earlier onset of wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Fotona SmoothEye laser treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that works by targeting specific areas in the periocular region where wrinkles and crow’s feet start forming. By using a fractional CO2 laser, we can target only small amounts of tissue while minimizing discomfort. We use this technology to treat both shallow and deep wrinkles along with crow’s feet.
Fractional lasers deliver concentrated light energy directly onto targeted tissues in deeper layers without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. This allows us to achieve smooth, natural-looking results with minimal downtime. The result is an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, increased collagen production and improved skin elasticity that lasts up to 12 months after treatment!
Anyone who wants smoother, younger-looking skin will benefit from laser eye treatments. Our patients include men and women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Patients seeking smoother, more youthful-looking skin should consider laser eye treatments because they provide fast, safe, non-invasive solutions to common cosmetic concerns such as dark circles under the eyes, puffy eyelids, enlarged blood vessels near the nose, and uneven pigmentation.
