Retinol, facial rollers, anti-wrinkle injections… We’ve heard it all when it comes to trying to get rid of eye wrinkles. As wrinkles under and around the eye can stop you from feeling your best, Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International is here to get you feeling great again with our revolutionary device. Read on to find out how we can help you, and your clients, get rid of eye wrinkles.
What causes wrinkles?
When it comes to understanding what really causes wrinkles, most people think that it naturally occurs with age or can be associated with too much exposure to the sun. However, as wrinkles are creases and folds in the skin, believe it or not, they can be caused by numerous other factors too, including:
- People’s facial expressions
- Some medications
- Environmental factors
- Genetic factors
As wrinkles occur when the elastin fibres (the key protein in skin which allows the body to return to shape once poked or prodded) become sunken, each of the above factors can all contribute to increasing the appearance of wrinkles.
For example, when the ageing process begins, the skin becomes less elastic and our skin begins to produce less natural oils. These factors combined can accelerate the appearance of wrinkles.
Prolonged exposure to the sun and smoking can also add to the mix, increasing the chances of wrinkles appearing on various parts of the face, including the forehead and eyes. The sun’s UV rays speed up the natural ageing process by breaking down elastin and collagen – the protein that helps with skin repair. As a result, the skin weakens and begins to sink, causing creases and folds.
In addition, smoking produces free radicals. These once-healthy oxygen modules become overactive, which can also contribute to the loosening of the skin.
Under eye wrinkles and wrinkles around the eye
Whether it’s upper eyelid wrinkles, under-eye wrinkles, crow’s feet, or infraorbital wrinkles (folds underneath the lower eyelid), when it comes to wrinkles, once they start to appear unfortunately there’s no going back.
We’ve all heard of botox or anti-wrinkle injections for getting rid of eye wrinkles and wrinkles affecting other areas of the face, such as the forehead and smile curves. These injectable fillers aim to relax facial muscles and make wrinkles in problem areas appear less obvious. However, they often come with pain and some side effects, such as bruising, facial pain, redness, and numbness.
Here at Plasma Pen, our revolutionary soft surgery device eliminates the need for any harsh anti-wrinkle injections that can impact the look of the entire facial architecture. Plasma Pen keeps skin looking flawless with no open wounds or thinning of the skin.
Using Plasma Pen to get rid of eye wrinkles
Unlike anti-wrinkle injections that affect the overall look of the entire face, Plasma Pen are able to deliver gentle, controlled bursts of plasma gas to treat all of your eye wrinkle problem areas. For the treatment of crow’s feet, under-eye wrinkles, and all other wrinkle problem areas, a single Plasma Pen treatment can reverse the signs of skin ageing.
Unlike anti-wrinkle injections and botox which last around three to four months, Plasma Pen can achieve long-lasting results of up to three years!
