How to take care of the thin skin under the eyes


As the skin under the eyes thins, people often look for ways to protect and thicken the skin under the eyes. Here are the 5 most common treatments for thin skin under the eyes, including:

Eye Lift Surgery – Eye lift surgery can provide a more youthful appearance and remove pre-existing puffiness at the same time. This is a popular choice. Eye lift surgery usually takes only 1 to 3 hours, and it is also one of the few treatments that provide lasting pain relief. However, surgery is an invasive method, so there are some risks involved. Side effects – which often appear after surgery – can include a feeling of tightness around the eyes, bruising, and sometimes swelling of the skin around the eyes. In addition, some people complain of burning and itching sensations for the first few days and weeks after surgery


Chemical Peels – We often think of chemical peels as a treatment for discolored skin or as a way to remove worn, aging skin and allow a healthy lower layer to emerge. presently. However, chemical peels are not generally considered to be the recommended treatment for the skin around the eyes. But in fact, the effect of this method on the skin around the cheeks is similar to the thin skin under the eyes. Removing old, damaged skin will allow for smoother and softer skin.

Fillers – There are 2 main types of fillers. The first type is an injection of a substance called “hyaluronic acid” into the space under the eyes. This stimulates collagen and elastin production over time, filling in gaps and making the surface smoother. The second method is to inject an inert substance directly into the thin skin under the eyes that needs to be filled in. You have to be careful when choosing this method because autologous fillers after a while can start to cause sagging.

Laser Skin Resurfacing – While peels rely on chemicals to burn away the old layer of skin, laser skin resurfacing uses a focused beam of light to do the same. That laser light removes the outer layer of skin but also penetrates to stimulate collagen production in the layers below. As the laser works across the skin under your eyes, you may feel nothing more than a slight stinging sensation.

Collagen Induction Therapy – This process – also known as “microneedling” – requires the movement of a roller over the skin under the eyes. This roller contains a lot of micro-needle heads that create micro-holes in the skin. They are not enough to cause pain or bleeding, but just enough to stimulate the body’s repair mechanisms. Then, if all goes well, new skin cells are generated to replace the affected cells and collagen production is stimulated, which helps to plump up the thin skin under the eyes over time.
