Be it wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, hollowness or puffiness… the delicate area around our eyes, also referred to as the eye contour, is the first to expose our stresses, betray those late nights and reveal our true age. Keep reading as we tell you how your eyes are giving away your age and what you can do about it!

Why your under-eyes age faster

The eye contour has the thinnest and most sensitive skin on the entire face – lacking in the all-important sebaceous glands, collagen and elastin fibres that give our skin the plump, healthy glow we all desire.

The combination of these factors means the fragile skin is susceptible to breaking down, developing fine lines, wrinkles and losing elasticity over time. It’s no wonder our eye contour is the first area to show signs of ageing!

Due to its vulnerability, the area has been typically untreatable without resorting to more serious medical procedures such as a blepharoplasty… until now.

How to treat the eye contour 

The good news comes in the form of a revolutionary treatment called Micro-needling.

Unlike older types of micro-needling devices, the newer Micro-needling devices can target the more sensitive areas around the eye via adjustable needle depth and increased oscillation (speed).

Often referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, Micro-needling works by opening thousands of micro-channels within the skin, stimulating your body’s natural auto-repair mechanisms and promoting the production of collagen and elastin.

The result for the eye contour is a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, along with a healthier, tighter-looking appearance.

The treatment is best suited to clients looking to see real results in under-eye bags, dark circles, dehydrated skin, wrinkles and fine lines – along with a host of other benefits.
