“I HAVE CREPES AND THEY’RE NOT ED­I­BLE”

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Beauty -

The skin around the eyes is far more frag­ile than the rest of the face so it’s the first area to lose col­la­gen and show fine lines. De­hy­dra­tion ex­ac­er­bates the is­sue, so if you don’t al­ready use an eye cream, start to­day.

Dr Ellen Selkon at Clinic 42 says un­der eye treat­ments are fraught with com­pli­ca­tions so it’s im­por­tant they are per­formed by a trained pro­fes­sional.

“Botox and Dys­port are great for fine wrin­kles in younger peo­ple who still have good skin elas­tic­ity. Der­mal fillers are good for tear troughs and any dark cir­cles caused by hol­low­ing. Venus skin tight­en­ing and der­mal needling all helps, as well as PRP, which pre­vents wrin­kles by in­duc­ing col­la­gen stim­u­la­tion.”

SO­LU­TIONS

Ap­ply eye cream daily – morn­ing and night – with your ring fin­ger us­ing a gen­tle tap­ping mo­tion; avoid drag­ging the skin with a swipe. Some makeup artists swear by reap­ply­ing eye cream dur­ing the day to keep the area hy­drated. Avail­able treat­ments in­clude the Pho­toReady Der­ma­gun at Clinic 42, which is ap­plied un­der the eye. Hyaluronic acid and a very small per­cent­age of Botox is ap­plied into the skin with a gun head that has five su­perfine nee­dles. This gives a longer last­ing, deeper dose of hy­dra­tion into the epi­der­mal.
