Wondering How to Get Smooth Skin and Reduce Eye Wrinkles? Try These Four Treatments
The endless quest for eternal youth — we are all on it, yet for most of it, it feels unachievable at times. You eat right, you moisturize, you follow a rigid skin care routine, you try to stay out of the sun and get enough sleep, but you are still struggling with pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
The good news? Since most of us could use a little outside help in that department, there are now many options to aid you in your journey of achieving a youthful glow. Understanding the why and how of wrinkling and sagging skin can help you protect against them and reduce their effects.
If you have been asking yourself how to get smooth skin and reduce eye wrinkles, we have answers. Here are four of four of our top procedures to give you that extra boost you deserve!
Why is My Skin Sagging and Wrinkling?
Before we start exploring the various procedures you can try for improving your sagging skin and wrinkles, it’s important to first understand why this is happening.
According to a Q&A in The Scientific American, “Intrinsic aging is the natural aging process that takes place over the years regardless of outside influences. After the age of 20, a person produces about 1 percent less collagen in the skin each year. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and more fragile with age.”
And while this process is natural, it can also hasten due to things such as extended exposure to UV rays or from certain skin conditions.
We understand how frustrating it can be. That’s why there are now a few procedures to help slow this down or reverse the effects.
How to Get Smooth Skin and Reduce Eye Wrinkles
Especially in recent years, many people have been wondering how to smooth skin and reduce eye wrinkles non-invasively and with little to no downtime. If you are in that camp of people, then look no further than Laser Genesis.
Under your skin, there is a tiny web of vessels. Laser Genesis uses powerful pulses to target those vessels to ultimately produce small strands of collagen that will continue to grow bigger. The thicker the strands of collagen, the smoother the skin.
With Laser Genesis you will likely undergo six treatments every one to two weeks to achieve maximum results. These 30-minute treatments will warm your face, but overall should be pain-free. And while you will likely need six full treatments for maximum skin smoothing, you may start seeing progress after as little as three sessions.
Since many of us look to celebrities when we are trying to emulate enviable skin, it’s no wonder that Secret RF has become one of the go-to answers for how to get smooth skin and reduce eye wrinkles.
It should come as no surprise then that according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Radiofrequency (RF) procedures have been used for non-surgical skin tightening since 2001; however, it has only recently gained widespread recognition, thanks to high-profile celebrities who rave about the benefits of their RF treatments.
So why are treatments such as Secret RF producing such promising results? Secret RF works by heating deep layers of the skin to activate collagen and tighten fibers. Thanks to the stimulation, collagen fibers then begin building new collagen, resulting in a long-lasting, effective face lifting. And, as a bonus, it typically only takes two to four treatments for continued improvement over three months.
The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery goes on to state why many are choosing this route when looking for how to smooth skin and reduce eye wrinkles:
“An advantage of using RF to heat tissues, as opposed to lasers (which use higher-frequency light waves), is that the lower frequency of RF can safely penetrate to a deeper level, helping to improve skin tone and structure, even lifting tissues.”
Botox and Derma Fillers
Along with newer, less invasive procedures such as Laser Genesis and Secret RF, there are always the tried and true options like Botox and Derma Fillers. These are especially good options for those of you looking for more immediate skin smoothing and wrinkle reduction.
With most seeing results in roughly 48 to 72 hours after the injection, Botox® Crow’s Feet Treatment is a great choice if you are specifically looking to target stubborn eye wrinkles. Like other forms of Botox, Botox® Crow’s Feet blocks nerve signals in the muscles to temporarily freeze them, which will then soften or remove wrinkles in the eye area. The procedure is FDA-cleared.
Similarly, fillers such as Restylane® Refyne™ and Restylane® Lyft continue to be popular options for those wondering how to smooth skin. These fillers are known for providing fuller, smoother skin while still achieving natural-looking results.
Both Botox and receiving fillers are minimally invasive procedures and produce quicker results and are typically for moderate to severe wrinkles. Both have shown to be very safe with very mild side effects, if any.
