Eye Skin Care Treatments

Editor's Note: This article has been recently updated with latest information and research studies.
 

There are many ways in which you can protect and enhance* the condition of your eye area. You have options ranging from at-home treatments that you can incorporate into your skin care routine, to highly specialized surgical procedures. To give you an overview, here are some examples that you can look into:

Sunscreen

Eye Skin Care Treatments

You should wear sunscreen everyday whether it looks like it’s going to be sunny or overcast, there will be different sources of UV rays from your surroundings, which can affect your skin. There are certain types of skin cancer that you can avoid from using sunscreen, like the melanoma.

Sunscreens come in different formulations like lotion, cream, spray or gel. You can choose which one works best for your skin type! For the eye area, I would highly recommend that you use sunscreen that is delicate enough so that your eyes won’t get irritated when you apply it.

Benefits of Using Eye Cream

Dermatologists and beauty experts highly recommend everyone to use eye cream during mornings and evenings, and that it is important to do so at an early age. Eye cream will help in keeping the eye area moisturized and encourage cell repair. Religiously using eye cream with help your eye area look more refreshed, well rested, and will hopefully slow down the signs of aging from appearing. Keep wrinkles, crow’s feet and dark circles at bay by incorporating eye cream into your skin care regimen. Always remember that having a bright eye area will help you look better and younger overall.

Topical Treatments

If you are looking for certain types of products for specific concerns in the eye area, then you can go to your local pharmacy or drug store for topical treatments. These topical products are made to help maintain the good condition of the skin of the eye area and minimize or slow down its breakdown due to age and other elements. The trick to finding the right one for you is to know your skin type around your eye area, and familiarize yourself with which chemicals/ingredients you might develop a reaction to. Consulting with a dermatologist always helps.

Chemical Peels

Once every couple of months, it would be nice to get a chemical peel. This procedure will help get rid of dead skin cells, as well as other blemishes. Most dermatologists offer this service, and quite popular among patrons because it is non-invasive. It is a simple procedure that involves putting a coat of chemical solution, which then helps it peel so that new and younger looking skin may emerge. Chemical peels are particularly helpful with removing* dark spots that may have been caused by acne. This procedure is also done for the skin in the eye area, while using a much more delicate formula. This is so irritation and damage to the eye area can be avoided.

Some would say that a chemical peel is like damaging the skin in a controlled manner. This is why it would be good to have it done by trained professionals. Having a chemical peel in the eye area will leave you with brighter and more flawless glow all over the face.

Fillers

Fillers, also known as “injectables” have become a popular procedure in the field of eye care treatments because it is non-invasive and has immediate effects. One of the most popular types of filler would be Botox.

Doctors commonly inject filler on wrinkles, so that the area can be smoothened out and literally make these lines go away. Fillers can also be used to plump up the cheeks and lips. As much as there are different brands of fillers in the market, these fillers can be made of different ingredients. Some fillers are harvested from your own body (fat or collagen), man-made fillers as well as those that are made of chemicals. Each has its own benefits and disadvantages, so I highly recommend that you do research prior to having fillers injected to our face.

You can see the effects of these fillers within a week quite immediate compared to other skin care methods. The thing with this procedure is that you have to make sure to make sure to have maintenance treatments lined up after because the effects will wear off in a span of a few months (depending on which type of filler you choose).

Surgical Procedure

Surgical skin care procedures are also known as cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery. Strictly speaking, the types of procedures that fall in this category are meant to correct or restore damage to the skin. For example, burn victims will need surgical procedures in order to restore the skin and its function of protecting the tissue and other organs that the skin protects.

A lot of people go to cosmetic surgeons to get eyelifts, facelifts and even rhinoplasty (commonly referred to as “nose job”). There are other types of cosmetic surgeries, but the ones I cited are some of the most popular.

Conclusion

Thanks to the magic* of modern medicine, there are a lot of eye skin care treatments that are available for your specific needs and wants. Topical eye skin care treatments are normally meant to address minor skin issues like acne and rashes. More invasive procedures are available for those that want to change or enhance* certain parts of the eye area.
