The area around the eyes requires careful anti-aging care, because most often it is she who betrays the real age, especially with the appearance of a characteristic mesh of wrinkles. Why it occurs and how to prevent it — we tell you in our material.
Eyes are what first of all attracts attention when communicating. Therefore, it is not surprising that you want to emphasize the expressiveness of the look by carefully caring for the skin around the eyes. After all, she is often so capricious! And very early it is covered with a mesh of wrinkles, which gives the eyes a tired, more adult look. Why the skin around the eyes ages quickly and whether it is possible to fight it — we tell together with the doctor of the Galaktika clinic, PhD, dermatologist, cosmetologist, Irina Aleksandrovna Ivanova.
What is the peculiarity of the skin around the eyes?
The skin of the eyelids (doctors call it the paraorbital area) requires special attention and carefully thought-out care. The skin in this area undergoes age—related changes quite early – already from the age of 25, fine wrinkles begin to appear-dashes, which are often called “crow’s feet”. First they appear on the lower eyelids and in the corners of the eyes, then they become more and more. Sooner or later, everyone faces this process.
The skin of the paraorbital region has anatomical features: it is thinner than in other areas of the face, and it has a thin hydrolipidic film. At the same time, hyperactive facial expressions are inherent in this zone — we smile, squint, blink, cry. Many people have a habit of touching their face, rubbing their eyes — and this also has a negative effect on the skin of the eyelids. Plus, vision problems (if any), lack of sleep, an unbalanced diet, smoking and alcohol, stress, and a passion for tanning beds also play a role.
Under the influence of negative factors, the number of fibroblasts in the skin decreases — cells involved in the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. All this leads to the formation of wrinkles.
How to deal with them?
Of course, modern cosmetology offers different methods of combating wrinkles around the eyes. But it is important to keep in mind that in order to achieve maximum effect, the approach to correction should be comprehensive, that is, combine injections, hardware techniques, care products, balanced nutrition. If there are problems with vision, they must be solved.
Botulinum therapy is a method that has long proven to be effective and safe. Such drugs as Botox, dysport, xeomin, can reduce the activity of facial muscles, which leads to the smoothing of wrinkles and prevents their subsequent appearance.
Biorevitalization and mesotherapy
Biorevitalization helps to start natural processes in the skin, which helps to moisturize the skin, produce collagen and elastin. Mesotherapy has also proven itself well, during which the skin receives a kind of “cocktails” of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and peptides.
Among the hardware procedures, laser and microcurrent therapy, as well as phototherapy, can be recommended. Home care is very important — regularly use the products recommended by a cosmetologist. And do not forget to protect the skin around the eyes from the sun — with the help of sunscreens, glasses and hats with large brims.
