Under Eye Treatments

This area causes so much worry for people that we have dedicated this page just to discuss your safe and best options. There are now so many options – it’s best to come in for a consultation for us to assess on a face to face examination. We will be able to advise on the best and safest route.

The reasons this area shows ageing signs so much quicker than the rest of our faces are varied and many.

The skin under and around the eye has no sweat / oil glands and is the thinnest skin on our faces. With time, and with genetic and environmental factors including diet , smoking, alcohol cause this delicate area to change and for the skin to form lines and wrinkles. Eventually, our genetics dictate what happens to our eyes and if we can help our skin as much as possible on the way, we will feel more confident in ourselves.

Problems with the under eye / eye lid area include some or all of the following:

  1. Skin changes – thinning and loss of laxity causing crepey skin
  2. Skin colour changes – darkened pigmenting ( dark brown circles) plus the thinning skin allows blood vessels to show through as dark blue
  3. Hollowing under the eye – as we reabsorb bone, the eyes become more deeply set
  4. Shadows under the eyes caused by fat loss under the facial muscles in the eye and cheek areas
  5. Eye bags caused by the cushions of fat sinking out of the eye orbit and being trapped by the eye ligaments giving that hammock effect

TREATMENT OPTIONS:

  1. Eye skin changes:

Eye lines form from the age of 25 as the delicate skin under and above the eye starts to thin and crease with the frequent movement of the eye and surrounding muscles. The loss of collagen and elastin means the skin becomes see-through and not able to stretch and return to a plump shape. It tends to form very thin lines, sometimes criss-crossed around the eyes.

Treatment Options for Crepey Under Eye Skin (these also address many of the other under eye problems)

    • Botox around the eye area to reduce movement and allow the lines to relax and the skin to recover from creasing
    • Light Dermal Filler placed superficially or deep under the skin (very few people are suitable for this)
    • Meso Therapy with NCTF nutrients to help rebuild collagen – either by injection or micro-needling (see NCTF inf0)
    • Meso-Therapy with PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – using your own blood (therefore no adverse reactions) to boost collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
    • PDO threads lightly placed around the eye skin which produce natural collagen over months without volume
    • Ellansé Collagen Stimulation to cheek and temple area

2. Eye Skin Colour Changes

As the skin thins, the rich blood supply and vessels show through a s dark blue shadow. This can be made worse by food intolerances and lack of sleep as well as other lifestyle choices including smoking and Algol / drugs / medication. This is not an easy condition to treat effectively. Genetic dark pigmentation cannot easily be reduced although some retinol, lightening creams are effective if used continuously and consistently.

Treatment Options for Darkened Skin

    • Botox around the eye area to reduce movement and allow the lines to relax and the skin to recover from creasing
    • Dermal Filler placed deep under the skin in the Tear Trough (very few people are suitable for this)
    • Meso Therapy with NCTF nutrients to help rebuild collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
    • Meso-Therapy with PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – using your own blood (therefore no adverse reactions) to boost collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
    • PDO threads lightly placed around the eye skin which produce natural collagen over months without volume
    • Ellansé Collagen Stimulation to cheek and temple area

3. Hollowing Under the Eye

As we re-absorb calcium  from our bones, our skeleton shrinks – including our skull and facial bones which can emphasise a hollowed groove under the orbit of the eye. Some people genetically have a deep groove which shows as a “hollowed eye”. This is traditionally treated by the tear trough filler but very few people are actually suitable for this filler treatment. If it is carried out on the wrong anatomical type, then the tear trough filler will make the eye look worse.

  • Dermal Filler superficially placed deep under the skin in the Tear Troug (very few people are suitable for this)
  • Meso Therapy with NCTF nutrients to help rebuild collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
  • Meso-Therapy with PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – using your own blood (therefore no adverse reactions) to boost collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
  • PDO threads lightly placed around the eye skin
  • Ellansé Collagen Stimulation to cheek and temple area

4. Eye Shadows

Shadows under the eye are the combined results of all of the above signs of ageing and living. Treatment would be to help lift or thicken the skin to help reduce the shadowing.

  • Dermal Filler superficially placed deep under the skin in the Tear Trough (very few people are suitable for this)
  • Meso Therapy with NCTF nutrients to help rebuild collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
  • Meso-Therapy with PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – using your own blood (therefore no adverse reactions) to boost collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
  • PDO threads lightly placed around the eye skin which produce natural collagen over months without volume
  • Ellansé Collagen Stimulation to cheek and temple area

5. Eye bags

Eye bags are mild swelling or puffiness under the eyes. They commonly develop as we age.

The delicate tissues around the eyes, including some of the muscles supporting your eyeballs and lids, weaken. Small pads of fat which help support the eyes can then move into the lower eyelids, causing the lower lids and eyes to appear puffy and have “bags” underneath which in turn stretches the skin.

TREATMENT OPTIONS:

  • Dermal Filler superficially placed deep under the skin in the Tear Trough (very few people are suitable for this)
  • Meso Therapy with NCTF nutrients to help rebuild collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
  • Meso-Therapy with PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – using your own blood (therefore no adverse reactions) to boost collagen – either by injection or micro-needling
  • PDO threads lightly placed around the eye skin which produce natural collagen over months without volume
  • Ellansé Collagen Stimulation to cheek and temple area

Each of these concerns can be treated in isolation or together in a combination approach using advanced techniques in skin laxity treatments, mesotherapy, PRP, tear-trough fillers, light dermal fillers and / or Botox.

All eye treatments require a consultation prior to treatment and not everyone is suitable due to individual anatomy, health and structure. We will act in your best interests to give you the best advice.
