Hollows and dark circles around the eyes are a very real problem for many of us and at any age, heavily impacting on our youthful appearance.
Eyes are very often the first feature we notice about each other. Along with a smile, they are also an area of the face that may show early tell-tale signs of ageing. Did you know that the skin around our eyes can have a biological age of up to 22 years older than other areas of our face?
Ageing and environmental factors, such as sun and pollution, can have a negative impact on the appearance of our eyes, as muscles weaken and struggle to hold the skin taut.
Skin also changes because collagen, the protein that gives structure to our cells begins to degrade. Collagen provides elasticity and, without it, the skin wrinkles and sags, often leading to bags under the eyes.
Frown lines, crow’s feet and the elevens (or the vertical creases between our eyebrows) can also add years to our face, accentuating tear troughs and making us appear older than our years.
Thankfully there is a solution that can add sparkle to our eyes and requires little downtime and immediate results.
Tear trough treatment is a simple non-invasive procedure that refreshes and rejuvenates the area around the eyes, eradicating the under-the-eye shadows and dark circles and giving the eyes a rested appearance – and the whole face a brighter, more youthful look.
At Intrigue Cosmetic Clinic we apply filler gently using a cannula rather than a needle. This allows for a more precise application that is kinder to the sensitive and thin skin around the eyes, plumping up the volume and boosting skin that has lost its elasticity.
The filler procedure is safe and can take as little as 30 to 45 minutes with no downtime, limited swelling and bruising, and offers a temporary solution that lasts between nine to 12 months.
So reverse the damage wreaked by unhealthy lifestyles, sleepless night and ageing with this pioneering procedure. In the meantime, here are our tips to look after your eyes…
