“I HAVE CREPES AND THEY’RE NOT EDIBLE”
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.”
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.
