There was a real focus on emphasizing eyes in 2020. With so many people wearing masks, it’s been all we’ve been able to see of one another a lot of the time. It’s led to a boost in lash extensions, bolder eye makeup, and anti-aging aesthetic treatments, as we feel like they’re more on show than ever.
The skin around our eyes is thinner than the rest of our face, so it tends to show signs of aging or sun damage more quickly than other parts. These signs can range from discoloration under the eyes, through to fine lines and wrinkles, such as crows’ feet. It’s super- susceptible to skin damage, so if you haven’t kept up with your SPF, this is probably where you’ll notice fine lines and wrinkles first.
Often, eye creams are best for prevention or for a temporary fix. They don’t usually give results in the long term, and might actually contribute to things like milia (tiny cysts that appear under the eye). They can definitely be effective if you use them as intended, but if you want results that go the distance, you need a better solution.
MicroNeedling is a great treatment to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin, reducing issues with texture, signs of aging, texture problems, scarring, and stretch marks. You might be wondering if it’s really a good idea to have needles around your delicate eye area, and we hear you. A trained, experienced professional will be able to carry out a microneedling procedure around your eye area safely and comfortably.
It’s absolutely worth it for the results, whatever your area of eye concern is. Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, meaning that it leaves skin looking younger, plumper, and more radiant.
If you’re looking to reduce dark circles under your eyes, microneedling will help by increasing collagen to the area and essentially adding volume where volume has been lost. At the same time, the rest of your skin will benefit from the increased collagen. Not only is this treatment effective for treating dark circles under the eyes, but it also helps treat many other common areas of concern.
The collagen and elastin production that comes with microneedling around your eye area is great for fine lines and wrinkles, such as crows’ feet. It has a lifting and tightening effect that works wonders around the eyes. It also creates microchannels in the skin, allowing for better penetration of high-quality skin care products.
More and more people are seeking solutions for their tear troughs. This is the part under your eyes that tends to lose volume as you age. The shadows caused by this hollowing can make you look older or make it look like you have a bit of dark under your eyes, but this isn’t often the case. Microneedling can be a fantastic choice for plumping up these areas again and stopping shadows from showing.
Microneedling around the eye area also has minimal downtime, with initial results visible relatively quickly. This is great if you want to get back to emphasizing your eyes as soon as you can.
