The eyes are often called the windows to the soul, but they can also be a telltale sign of ageing. As we get older, the area around our eyes can start to form crow’s feet, dark circles, and undereye bags, causing us to appear older. However, there are ways to reverse these signs of ageing and enjoy a more youthful look around the eyes.
Modern cosmetic treatments offer a variety of solutions to help preserve or even turn back the clock on your eye area. Here, we look at how you can keep that youthful sparkle alive, discussing both surgical and non-surgical options.
What Are the Signs of Ageing Around the Eyes?
Ageing around the eyes manifests in various ways, with each sign carrying its own unique set of challenges. Crow’s feet, those tiny lines radiating from the corners of your eyes, can often appear earlier than expected. They form due to constant muscle use and loss of skin elasticity.
Fine lines and wrinkles can also develop under the eyes and on the lids. Then, there are dark circles that make you look perpetually tired, even when you’re well-rested. Let’s also not forget the undereye bags that can add years to your face, or sagging skin that can even interfere with vision.
These signs collectively contribute to a tired, aged appearance.
What Treatments Can Help Preserve a Youthful Look Around the Eyes
Several treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, can help combat the signs of ageing around the eyes. Which option is right for you depends on the severity of the ageing signs and desired results. Let’s briefly explore the non-surgical and surgical options available:
For those who aren’t ready to go under the knife, non-surgical options like dermal fillers can offer temporary relief from crow’s feet, wrinkles, and fine lines. These treatments are minimally invasive and come with a shorter recovery time.
However, it’s important to note that these results are only temporary, requiring regular upkeep to maintain the youthful effect.
If you’re seeking more long-lasting results, surgical options like blepharoplasty might be the best option. This surgical procedure involves removing or repositioning excess skin and fat around the eyes to reduce bagginess and improve the appearance of the eyelids.
In some cases, a brow lift may also help eliminate the signs of ageing, lifting the skin for a more youthful look.
While the recovery time is longer than non-surgical treatments, the results are more permanent and can offer a transformative effect.
