Under Eye Skin Dilemma – Unveiling the Importance of Hydration Treatments
The under eye area is notoriously delicate and prone
to various issues including dark circles, puffiness and fine lines. None of us
are exempt from at least one of these! However, one of the most effective ways
to address these concerns is through quality hydration treatments.
Why is the Under Eye Area so Problematic?
The skin around the eyes is considerably thinner and more
delicate than the skin on the rest of our face. It lacks oil glads, making it
more susceptible to dryness and dehydration. Then, throw in factors like ageing,
lack of sleep, stress, sun exposure and genetics which all add to the issue.
Consequently, your under eye skin may lose its elasticity making it thin and
transparent which leads to (or exacerbates) dark circles, bags and wrinkles.
How to Improve Your Under Eye Skin
Hydration! Again and again, you’ll hear me say, that proper hydration is essential to the health, elasticity and youthful appearance of your under eye skin.
Quite simply, hydration replenishes moisture, boosts elasticity and promotes healthy cell turnover. Adequate hydration enhances the skins natural barrier function, prevents water loss and protects against external agressors. When your under eye skin is well hydrated, it appears plumper, smoother and more radiant. It’s also less prone to irritation, redness and inflammation. Winning!

These specialised treatments provide an intensive burst of hydration and are designed to target specific concerns such as dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. Eye masks are infused with hydrating ingredients and are usually left on the skin for a short period to allow maximum absorption. They provide an instant cooling and soothing effect, reducing puffiness and reviving tired-looking eyes. Best kept in the fridge prior to application, leave on for 15 minutes, remove and gently rub in any remaining serum. There are 5 in a box and for just $20, these are fabulous addition to your beauty arsenal.
Injectable Skin Boosters & Dermal Fillers
For those dealing with pronounced under eye hollows or deep tear troughs, hyaluronic acid fillers can be a game-changer. Dermal fillers are injected into the under-eye area to restore volume, plump up the skin, and minimise the appearance of dark circles and hollowness. They offer immediate results and can last for several months. Skin boosters are superficial injections that combine hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins to boost the luminosity and collagen elastin production of the under eye skin.
Incorporating hydration treatments into your skincare routine can make a significant difference in the health and appearance of the delicate under-eye area. By nourishing and replenishing moisture, these treatments help combat dryness, minimise dark circles, reduce puffiness, and diminish fine lines, leaving you with a rejuvenated and refreshed look. If this is an area you would like to improve, I would suggest considering booking a bionutirent or skin booster treatment on my booking menu.
See you in clinic!
