Wrinkles Around Eyes
Q: Iím starting to get wrinkles around my eyes. What can I do?
A: As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin which is what gives our skin is texture and resilience. Furthermore, the skin
produces less of these elements as we grow older, which slowly results in the development of wrinkles, and can slow the skinís
ability to heal and repair itself.
The best and least invasive way to treat the formation of wrinkles is first of all to
moisturize. Moisturizers will hydrate the skin and plump up the wrinkles to minimize their appearance. You can also find many new
products available which are designed to boost the formation of collagen and elastin. This will help to further reduce the look of fine
lines and wrinkles and help the skin to repair itself to a more youthful appearance.
There are also procedures that can be performed by your dermatologist Ė such as chemical
peels and laser therapy Ė which destroy and remove the older, upper dermal layers to reveal the newer skin below. These are generally
more expensive (particularly in the case of laser therapies) and can be uncomfortable, since they involve the use of acids and laser
light to burn away the upper dermal layers.
