Found a proposal that is not on this list? Let us know!!!

To begin with, let's briefly look for ourselves the reasons for the formation of under-eye problems.

Protect your skin from an early age!

The first bruises, swelling or wrinkles around the eyes are a sign that it is time to act and act immediately! Problems in the eye area start at an early age, around the age of 25-30, and worsen with age. As a general rule, these are: - bruises under the eyes, which occur as a result of venous stasis or the immediate proximity of blood vessels to the surface of the skin; - dry skin, causing the first wrinkles, which appears due to a lack of subcutaneous fat; - imitate the wrinkles or, the so-called crow's feet, in the corners of the eyes, characteristic of almost all women after 30-35 years; From the age of 35, the problems described above are added: - Thinning of the flaccid skin around the eyes, as a result of prolonged dryness of the skin. - rosacea (vascular mesh) under the eyes, as a continuation of seemingly harmless bruises under the eyes. - palpeobromal and nasolacrimal grooves; - age spots that give away age and create the effect of tired eyes.

Remember!The skin around the eyes needs special care! It is important to choose the right cream, make nourishing masks, use oils and, if necessary, contact an esthetician who can offer one of many possible procedures.

Today, cosmetologists are ready to offer women not one, but several ways to maintain or rejuvenate the skin around the eyes.

eye patches


Blepharoplasty is performed on the upper and lower eyelids up to the ciliary border. For this, special narrow nozzles (7 mm) are used. The procedure is often used to treat crow's feet, lower eyelid wrinkles, and upper eyelid tightening.

Blepharoplasty renews human skin and frees it from all defects. A fine laser beam forms thousands of microzones of influence on every inch of the skin, where old, faulty collagen is destroyed. At the same time, many viable cells remain around each microzone of influence, which are activated under the influence of heat. During this process, which can last from several hours to several days, flawless skin appears at the site of each microzone.

After the fractional laser resurfacing procedure, the very structure of the skin changes. It becomes softer, more hydrated, elastic, less prone to inflammation and rashes. In this case, the surface of the skin is not injured.

Among other things, Fraxel solves the problem of dark circles under the eyes. The principle of action of the Fraxel laser on age spots and areas of hyperpigmentation differs from all the usual methods. The laser does not affect melanin, but rather the cells that synthesize and accumulate this pigment. Therefore, old cells, in which melanin formation is disturbed, are replaced by new ones. Instead of the area of hyperpigmentation, a skin of a natural tone is formed.

Hardware or RF elevation

Light or radio frequency lifting is the most popular skin rejuvenation procedure, including around the eyes. By the way, lifting the periorbital area (that is, around the eyes) is often called a non-surgical blepharoplasty.

The essence of the method lies in the thermal effect on the skin, as a result of which the production of collagen and elastin is activated. After just one procedure, the skin becomes tight, smooth, radiant and elastic. We have already written about what the radiofrequency lifting action is based on and what results the beautician can achieve. Radiofrequency lifting is believed to be one of the most effective non-injection rejuvenation methods. During the procedure, radio waves heat the deep layers of the dermis, stimulating the growth and division of fibroblasts, which in turn leads to the synthesis of collagen fibers.

Regarding the rejuvenation of the skin around the eyes, the results will be visible after the first procedure: - the wrinkled mesh and the so-called crow's feet will disappear; - you will forget about bags and bruises under the eyes; - the upper and lower eyelids will be strengthened and tightened; - the skin will be strengthened and rejuvenated; - You will look between 10 and 15 years younger.

It should be noted that the procedure itself is painless, requires no special preparation, practically does not interrupt daily activities, does not require the use of anesthetics, and can be performed at any time of the year.

To achieve maximum results, approximately 4 sessions will be needed, approximately once every 2-3 weeks. The results of skin rejuvenation, including those around the eyes, last up to 5 years. For a longer effect, the RF lift can be repeated twice a year, one procedure at a time.

well-groomed skin

Causes of occurrence

Characteristics of the skin structure

Rays and crow's feet form around the eyes because the skin in this area is more vulnerable than in others. What makes it so sensitive?

The skin on the eyelids is approximately 6 times thinner than the skin on the cheeks, making it more prone to stretching and wrinkling.

The subcutaneous fat layer in this area is negligible.

The number of sebaceous glands is reduced, so the hydrolipidic protective film is thinner.

Active facial expressions

we express emotions (smile, frown);

we make about 20 blinks per minute.

This gigantic load cannot help but affect the appearance of the skin around the eyes.

Age-related changes


The harmful effects of rays on the skin (formation of wrinkles, pigmentation) are known to all. But if previous dermatologists believed that only sunglasses can protect the skin of the eyelids from ultraviolet radiation, now they have started to produce special sunscreens for the area around the eyes.

Bad Habits

Without exaggeration, this is the number one skin enemy. When tobacco smoke is inhaled, the capillaries spasm and are in good shape for about 2 hours. Approximately this amount of time is a pause between two cigarettes, that is, all day the smoker's skin is in a state of stress and lack of oxygen. And don't forget the toxicity of tobacco.

On the one hand, it is argued that a glass of red wine a day is good for health, since grapes contain polyphenols, an antioxidant. On the other hand, alcohol, along with tobacco, is one of the culprits for skin deterioration. Two extra glasses of wine a day can lead to dehydration lines around the eyes and redness of the skin there.

Vision problems

Biorevitalization or mesotherapy of the skin around the eyes

Both methods involve injecting the area around the eyes. In the case of biorevitalization, hyaluronic acid is injected under the skin, and in the case of mesotherapy, a cocktail that also contains hyaluronic acid and a complex of micro and macro elements necessary to nourish and rejuvenate the skin.

It is believed that mesotherapy can be performed from the age of 30 and biorevitalization a little later, from the age of 35-40. During the procedure, the doctor injects medications into the problem areas that help remove bruising, swelling, and small wrinkles in the eye area that, as described above, are the result of a lack of moisture and nutrients.

Important!Hyaluronic acid is a unique component found in every cell of our skin. It is she who retains moisture and thus provides a healthy and well-cared appearance to the skin. With age, the content of hyaluronic acid in the cells is reduced, which leads to dryness and sagging of the skin.

In the case of mesotherapy, in addition to hyaluronic acid, the cocktails contain components that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin (placental hydrolyzate, plant extracts, vitamins and minerals). This leads to a prolonged effect of the procedure and darkening and wrinkles in the eye area disappear. The rejuvenation results will be visible after the first procedure, and full rejuvenation will require several sessions.

The effect after mesotherapy and biorevitalization lasts on average about 6 months. To save the results, the procedure must be repeated periodically.

Photorejuvenation method

In addition to home methods for treating facial wrinkles, beauty salons provide professional services. Therefore, the question "How to remove deep wrinkles" can be safely put to a beautician who carefully examines the condition of your skin and selects all the necessary procedures.

Therefore, it can not only remove wrinkles on the face, but also improve skin color, remove bags under the eyes, and tighten the oval of the face. The rehabilitation period is minimal. This method is a great addition after plastic surgery or laser skin resurfacing.

photorejuvenation method

Thanks to this method, you can eliminate wrinkles on the face and improve its color. The essence of the method lies in the introduction of special hyaluronic acid using an original technique into certain layers of the skin. This is how mesotherapy and biorevitalization procedures are carried out. However, in addition to these invasive methods, there are other non-invasive ones: this is facial hyaluronoplasty, an example of a hardware technique.

This protein preparation has successfully migrated from the plastic surgeon's office to the cosmetologist's office. With the help of it, you can remove wrinkles from the face, both superficial and deep. But there is a nuance here: it is ineffective for nasolabial folds and chin folds. This is due to the fact that botox blocks the transmission of nerve impulses in the muscle fibers, as if relaxing them.

Botox is also combined with hyaluronic acid to eliminate deep wrinkles on the face. This effect lasts up to six months. It is better to entrust this type of procedure to a cosmetologist with a medical diploma, who can choose medical cosmetics for mimic small wrinkles.


The method is based on intradermal microinjections with the introduction of certain preparations containing hyaluronic acid, vitamins, proteins and amino acids. Due to the multicomponent nature in the treated area, the necessary reserve for the skin is created, which is absorbed into the blood for a long period of time, more than 14 days, which gives rise to natural regeneration processes in the dermis.


Thanks to biorevitalization, facial wrinkles can be safely removed using hyaluronic acid injections. This procedure improves the condition of the skin, both on the face and on other parts of the body. For example, on the neckline, forearms, etc. Biorevitalization with hyaluronic acid makes the skin elastic, firming and returns a healthy color.


Redermalization is based on the intradermal injection of a special preparation, which can be used to remove deep wrinkles on the face. This is due to the rejuvenation and restoration of the skin from the inside with the help of injections, which is why another name for this procedure is injection redermalization.

In practice, it is known for its effectiveness, minimally invasive and minimal side effects, which is why it is widely used in modern aesthetic medicine. With it, you can safely remove wrinkles from your face. This is due to the content of known hyaluronic acid and sodium succinate, a derivative of succinic acid, in the preparations.

If your forehead is covered in wrinkles, the photorejuvenation method is relevant for you. Eliminating facial wrinkles with this method is possible due to the activation of the restoration of the skin tissues and the launch of the production of elastin and collagen, which are considered the basis of the elasticity and freshness of the skin. The principle of this method is a combination of light pulses and radio frequencies.

Tissues at a certain level heat up intensely, so old structures are renewed and new young ones are formed. New technologies make it possible to rejuvenate the skin from the inside and renew the subcutaneous tissue without surgery. If you are interested in how much it costs to use such cosmetic procedures, you can make sure that they will be cheaper than surgical lift.

Fillers based on hyaluronic acid

Fillers, that is, soft gel based on hyaluronic acid: considered the most effective way to eliminate wrinkles, tears and bruises in the eye area. Fillers, like mesotherapy, are preparations based on hyaluronic acid, enriched with a complex of vitamins and amino acids.

The fundamental difference between mesotherapy and fillers is the density of the drug. Fillers are a soft gel, so they not only rejuvenate the skin by stimulating exfoliation production, but also plump up wrinkles and eye sockets. And if mesotherapy can be practiced from 25-28 years, fillers - from approximately 40, but in this case everything depends on the individual characteristics of the skin and the decision of the cosmetologist.

During the procedure, the filler is inserted into the eye socket, as a result of which wrinkles are smoothed, bruises, tear grooves and the effect of sunken eyes disappear. The drug is evenly distributed throughout the pereobital area, and the rejuvenation result lasts up to a year and a half.

Everything would be fine, but hyaluronic fillers are characterized by the so-called Tyndall effect. This means that hyaluronic acid, which is colorless in nature, refracts under the influence of light rays and the skin acquires bluish or purple streaks. In fairness, it should be noted that they are only visible on very fine and sensitive skin. The effect only disappears when the gel dissolves completely, that is, after about six months. Also, according to the reviews of some women, the fillers introduced, especially at the beginning, create the effect of puffy eyelids.

Important!Before deciding to inject fillers, as well as any other anti-aging procedure, find a good cosmetologist who will assess the condition of your skin and suggest the optimal anti-aging procedure.

Salon treatments to reduce nasolabial folds

Beauty salons offer a variety of treatments that rejuvenate the skin and eliminate nasolabial folds. The main advantage of these techniques is the possibility of a rapid correction of the facial skin and the long-term preservation of the effect obtained. A wide range of procedures allows you to choose the most suitable method for each specific case.


The procedure includes the introduction into the skin of a cocktail that contains a complex of vitamins, nucleic acids, microelements and other nutrients. For its implementation, a special apparatus with microneedles is used.

In this way, it can provide nutrition to the dermis (inner layer of the skin), improve blood circulation and lymphatic flow, accelerate metabolism, and provide cells with sufficient moisture. The wellness course can consist of 5 to 10 sessions.

The advantages of the method include the use of minimal doses: from 2 ml to a few drops of a meso cocktail, the non-toxicity of the drugs used for the body, the absence of contraindications and age restrictions.

Disadvantages: with injections, pain, bruising at the injection sites can be felt, complications in the form of an allergic reaction with redness of the skin at the injection site are not excluded.

Lip filler

In lipofilling, fat extracted from another part of the patient's body is injected along the nasolabial fold line. Use local anesthesia. The operation lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.

Advantages of lipofilling: low probability of rejection of the transplanted material by the body or the appearance of allergic manifestations, absence of postoperative sutures, in many cases the result obtained lasts a long time.

Disadvantages of this method:

  • part of the injected fat is absorbed in the postoperative period, thus requiring a greater volume of adipose tissue;
  • sometimes, due to accelerated resorption of the material, additional procedures are required;
  • may have bruising and slight swelling, numbness, or pain at the fat injection site, but this discomfort goes away within a week.

The mechanism for smoothing the nasolabial folds using contour plastics is based on the introduction of gelatinous substances, filled into the skin cavity. Translated from English, this name translates to "placeholders. "

The most commonly used fillers are preparations that contain hyaluronic acid, a polysaccharide that binds to water and increases in volume at the injection site.

The safety and efficacy of hyaluronic injections in the fight against nasolabial folds is due to the fact that the acid used for them is a natural component of the skin. Being biologically compatible with the human body, after a while it dissolves and it becomes necessary to repeat the procedure.

If there are contraindications to the introduction of hyaluronic acid, it is replaced with a filler, in which a synthetic substance that is absorbed into the body is used - polycaprolactone.

The effect of hyaluronic injections lasts at least 6 months, in some cases up to 2 years. The procedure can be done at any age. Contraindication to its use is pregnancy, skin diseases, pathologies of internal organs.

nasolabial folds

Contains botulinum toxin, a poisonous substance that blocks the flow of nerve impulses to the facial muscles. Under the influence of the neurotoxin, the area of the skin that forms the nasolabial fold is relaxed and straightened.

With the correct calculation and administration of a Botox dose, increased muscle tone can be eliminated without altering natural facial expressions. The result obtained lasts from 4 to 12 months.

The advantage of the procedure is that it avoids plastic surgery and is an alternative to other types of cosmetic procedures.

Disadvantages: in case of an overdose of the drug, side effects may appear in the form of a significant decrease in the activity of the facial muscles, soft tissue prolapse, facial asymmetry. But these phenomena are temporary and happen after the drug is excreted from the body.

Rhytidectomy is a radical method of removing nasolabial folds to help remove wrinkles and make your face look younger. During the operation, the hanging skin is stretched, the excess is removed.

Plastic surgery has developed many methods of face lift, if necessary, it can be combined with the installation of facial implants, supplemented with a biorevitalization procedure.

The effect achieved as a result of rhytidectomy lasts 10 years. A similar surgical procedure is used in patients over 40 years of age.

The advantage of this method is that it works well with a significant depth of crease, which is difficult to remove in other ways.

The disadvantage is the high cost, the rehabilitation period is longer than with other methods. Complications in the form of noticeable scars, bruises, numbness of a part of the face are possible.

Today, many women wonder how to get rid of facial wrinkles. Cosmetologists offer a number of hardware procedures and injection techniques at various costs that eliminate the signs of aging on the face. Among them, the following methods are popular:

  • botox;
  • hyaluronic acid fillers;
  • laser resurfacing;
  • photorejuvenation;
  • peeled.

Gentle mechanical peeling is a microdermabrasion method. This procedure evens the surface of the skin and smooths wrinkles. The combination of vacuum massage with this method activates the outflow of lymph, eliminates edema and intoxication of the skin. Blood circulation is normalized, and the deep epidermal layers are saturated with useful components. As a result, the skin is cleansed from both the outside and the inside, receives more oxygen and looks younger.
