Recently, one woman admitted to going great lengths to avoid developing wrinkles on her face — she swore off smiling for 40 years!
While her method was extreme, it did seem to work based on the many photos of her circulating online. But, we don’t want you to sacrifice joyful moments and laughter in exchange for smoother and younger skin.
Instead, there are easier ways to avoid face wrinkles, especially when it comes to under your eyes. Keep reading to discover the best ways to get rid of fine lines under eyes.
If you’re noticing under eye fine lines, consider trying chemical peels. These treatments involve a dermatologist or esthetician exfoliating your skin with chemical solutions. This essentially removes the top layer of your skin, which makes your wrinkles and fine lines disappear.
Depending on the type of chemical used — glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, or trichloroacetic acid — the deeper the treatment goes. This increases the associated recovery time.
After a chemical peel, your skin will be very susceptible to sunlight so make sure you wear a lot of sunscreen. You’ll also want to kick your daily moisturizing routine up a notch to help grow a new healthy layer of facial skin.
Fraxel Laser Treatment
Fraxel laser treatments are one of the quickest ways to get rid of fine lines or wrinkles underneath your eyes.
This is a non-surgical procedure that involves a laser pushing thermal zones into the skin. Your skin then reacts by pushing out the damaged skin and replacing it with new, healthy skin. During this process, you may feel some discomfort, which patients compare to “pins and needles” sensation.
Each treatment can target and repair up to 20% of your wrinkled or damaged skin. You must wait at least three weeks between treatments and receive around five sessions depending on your desired results.
If you’re looking for a way to get rid of fine lines under eyes from the comfort of your home, consider using a retinol cream.
Retinoids work by increasing the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen replaces dead or aging skin cells and encourages the growth of healthy, wrinkle-free skin. In addition, retinol cream has been known to help with removing sun spots and evening out skin pigmentation.
Because this is a non-invasive treatment method, it can take three to six months or regular use until you notice results. Retinoids can cause skin dryness, so start by using it only every other day. After a while, you can try applying the cream nightly.
Say Goodbye to any Fine Lines Under Eyes
Once you start using any of these three methods, it’s time to say goodbye to those fine lines under eyes.
If you’re looking for fast results visit your esthetician or dermatologist. They can help you decide between a chemical peel or Fraxel laser treatment. If you’re willing to wait on natural results, try adding a retinol cream into your skincare routine.
