The skin around the eyes is approximately ten times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face. With the constant exposure to the harsh weather elements and intrinsic ageing, this means that the area under the eyes will start to age first. Fine lines and wrinkles are first visible in this area. Over time, the wrinkles become deeper and more apparent. With the lack of collagen and elastin fibers around the eyes, the eyelids also start to droop, making you look tired and listless even though you may not be.
At Radium Medical Aesthetics, we use a non-ablative laser to gently heat up the skin and kickstart the production of collagen and elastin fibers. At the same time, the laser also shatters stubborn pigmentation or dark spots that may be present around the eyes.
This is a very gentle treatment which has minimal downtime. You can expect some skin redness and sensitivity immediately after the treatment. However, these side effects should not last longer than 1 day.
