Eye Wrinkles That Are Bothering You? 3 Options You Have To Diminish Them

If you are getting older and you have eye wrinkles that are bothering you, you have many options that can help you with these. Below are three of these options so you can decide what would be best for you.


A common treatment to help with wrinkles is a Botox treatment. Botox works by blocking signals that your nerves send to your facial muscles. Along with eye wrinkles, which are often referred to as crow's feet, Botox is used to treat frown lines and forehead wrinkles.  The Botox is injected into your skin with a needle. You will be red at the injection site for a few hours after the procedure, and it may feel a little painful.

It will take a couple of weeks before you will see the final results from Botox. Because of this, make sure you do not worry if you do not see your wrinkles immediately disappear. One thing people like about getting Botox is that it can last up to four months before you will have to have the injections again. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can work to smooth out the lines around your eyes. This peel will not completely remove the lines, however. The peel works because it removes the top layer of your skin.

You should never do a chemical peel on your own at home as if not done correctly or the wrong type of peel is used, you would end up looking worse. The solution is gently placed on your face around your eyes. You may go ahead and ask the dermatologist to place the solution over your entire face. This is because chemical peels can remove scarring that you may have from acne when you were younger or other imperfections on your face.

Dermal Fillers

As you get older, your skin will lose volume, including the skin around your eyes. This will cause your facial tissues to thin out, and then wrinkles will start to appear.

Dermal fillers will tighten up the skin in the wrinkled area. The filler is made with a gel type substance that is injected into your skin. The skin then plumps up and the wrinkles start to soften so they are not nearly as noticeable. Dermatologists often use fillers that are made of hyaluronic acid. This is because this acid is found in your skin, so it is completely natural.
