Fine lines | wrinkles| under eye| causes & treatment| Prevention | Dr. Aanchal Panth

hi I'm dr. Archelle pant and today I'm

going to be telling you about under eye

wrinkles what are the causes and how to

treat them this was a highly requested

video under eye wrinkles are a common

complaint so whenever we look at

somebody the first thing we notice are

their eyes so if the skin under their

eyes have wrinkles or it's dark then the

tend to look older than their age so

taking good care of your under eye skin

is very important if you want to look

youthful so what are the causes for

under eye wrinkles first and foremost is

robbing your eyes lot of people have a

habit of rubbing their eyes especially

at the end of the day when they feel

that robbing their eyes will reduce the

tiredness this is something should

absolutely not do ok robbing the eyes

causes injury to the skin and leads to

collagen breakdown which causes wrinkles

the skin under the eyes are very thin ok

so you don't want to injure it so please

do not rub your eyes second is if you

have spectacles and you don't wear them

so when you don't wear spectacles your

eyes will try to focus on an object

which is far then effort to focus the

muscles around your eyes will tend to

contract and this repeated contraction

can lead to early appearance of wrinkles

around the eyes certain allergies can

also cause wrinkles around the eyes such

as allergic rhinitis allergic sinusitis

atopic dermatitis all these conditions

can cause premature appearance of

wrinkles around the eyes in Etobicoke


there's dry skin in the whole body and

also dryness or under the eyes so

because of dry skin under the eyes the

wrinkles tend to be more prominent just

the normal process of aging can also

lead to wrinkles under the eyes so as we

age the skin tends to lose collagen and

elastin okay so the skin is not as

elastic and does not have the turgor

that it had when it was young so this

breakdown of collagen can lead to the

skin getting thrown into fools and these

fools appear as wrinkles there can be

certain change in your genetics that

could be the reason for your under eye

wrinkles so in certain families wrinkles

tend to appear early as compared to

others so what are the treatments that

you can take for under eye wrinkles the

best and the gold standard treatment for

under eye wrinkles is bottling toxin

injection or motor

Injection Botox injections cause

relaxation of the muscle so because the

muscle is not contracting there will be

no inline formation but botulinum toxin

injections are best when you have

dynamic wrinkles okay so if these fine

lines and wrinkles are dynamic that

means that when there is expression and

movement of your face only then if the

wrinkles are pure then Botox can

completely get rid of it but if you have

wrinkles even when you have a straight

face with new expressions at all then

Botox will help in reducing the

appearance but will not completely help

in disappearing the wrinkles the cost

for bottling toxin injection depends

upon the units injected and the units

depend upon how deep your wrinkles are

and how many of them you have results of

botulinum toxin can be noticed as early

as three days and maximum results are

seen in 14 days and the results tend to

last for about four to six months so it

is best to consult your dermatologist if

you want to know whether botulinum toxin

injections are suitable for you or not

there are certain under eye creams that

you can use to reduce the appearance of

fine lines and wrinkles so look for

components such as retinol peptides and

hyaluronic acid in them

okay these will help in boosting the

collagen and will also plump up the skin

as hyaluronic acid tends to attract

water under the skin so it makes the

appearance of fine lines much less I

suggest you to please make a habit of

reading the labels of all the under eye

creams I get a lot of requests for

suggesting an under eye cream so I

request that if you look at the

ingredients available

maybe the under eye cream that you're

using is good enough okay so you can

just look for the presence of retinol

peptides and hyaluronic acid the under

eye creams I prefer are roc under eye

cream a Vata under eye cream and

Neutrogena hydraboost eye gel these

under eye creams will have to be used

regularly for a period of about 3 to 4

months before you can notice improvement

ok so it is not like a magic or a quick

fix so you will have to use this

regularly for 3 to 4 months in order to

see results I get a lot of questions

whether they can apply tretinoin cream

under the eye

tretinoin is a very good cream in

reducing wrinkles but under-eye skin is

face sensitive okay so if you have dry

under-eye skin or you react to products

easily then tretinoin cream is not a

good option for you to apply on the

under eye you'll not be pro tolerated so

I will not suggest you to apply

tretinoin cream under the eyes if you do

wish to apply Tet you know in cream I

suggest that you visit your

dermatologist you consult once a

dermatologist can you know see you in

person and see how your skin is then

maybe they'll be able to give you the

right suggestion whether trechie know in

cream under the eyes will be suitable

for you or not we can also undergo

certain peels such as arginine peel

lactic acid peel or mandelic acid peel

in order to reduce the wrinkling under

the eyes you have to go for about six to

eight sessions of these peels in order

to see improvement these pins help in

shedding the dead skin layer of the skin

and also helps in stimulating collagen

formation so in the long run it helps in

reducing the appearance of fine lines

and wrinkles you can also undergo a few

sessions of fractional co2 laser or

micro needling RF treatment would these

work by heating the skin up causing a

type of a thermal injury to small

portions of the skin thereby causing

collagen stimulation and formation of

new skin this new skin will be tighter

and we'll have less lines and wrinkles

you will have to undergo about three to

four sessions of these treatments at

about two months interval in order to

see improvement

hyaluronic acid fillers injected under

the eyes can also help in improving the

fine lines and wrinkles so if you have

your trough under the eyes along with

fine lines and wrinkles then hyaluronic

acid is a good option for you

hyaluronic acid tends to attract water

and hence plumps up the skin under the

eyes so this way it will not only

improve the groove under your eyes but

will also improve the quality of the

skin okay so the fine lines and wrinkles

will appear much less so there you go a
