The skin around our eyes is very thin and delicate, making it one of the first places for the signs of premature ageing to set in. Collagen and elastin are the foundations to healthy, youthful skin, but as we age, these vital building blocks gradually deplete, with less and less new and healthy collagen and elastin being produced. This consequently leads to volume loss and unsightly sagging, wrinkling and folds. One of the most obvious examples would be the crow’s feet. These pesky fine lines extend from the corners of the eyes, particularly when we squint or laugh. While little can be done to prevent them from developing, there are treatment options available to improve the appearance of the skin for a more youthful look. Dermal fillers are also great for the tear trough area and the appearance of eye bags.
While you might immediately think that such procedures would be rather invasive and costly, that simply isn’t the case anymore thanks to modern aesthetics. Dermal fillers are a safe and effective non-surgical alternative that offer a temporary solution to ageing skin. This said, tear trough fillers are also a highly skilled treatment, so it is extremely important that you choose an advanced practitioner, or doctor such as Dr Taylor to perform the procedure.
