5 Non-Surgical Ways to Beat Under Eye Problems!
When it comes to aging, one if the biggest complaints brought to my attention has to do with the under eye area looking and feeling “old.” The skin surrounding your eyes is super delicate, due to its thin nature and constant exposure.
The skin in this area has a higher risk of developing several types of skin problems. Whether it’s due to genetics, fatigue, or the natural aging process. Under eye problems tend to bring a common tired appearance for both men and women.
With the right skincare, products, and treatments, you can combat the common problems of puffy bags, dry skin, dark circles, and poor skin tone. Overall avoiding having to go under the knife to give a more rested appearance to the eye area!
Here in our office, we like to refer to Botox as liquid gold! The inject-able treatments minimize the muscle contractions that lead to visible wrinkles associated with facial expressions, fine lines and wrinkles that appear when you squint or smile.
The results last from three to four months until the muscle movement gradually returns. Botox can also be used to smooth lines between the brows and horizontal lines across the forehead. Minimizing muscle movement in the upper third will have a profound anti-aging effect on the eye area.
Under Eye Patches
I’m all for face mask and under eye patches!! At Millefiori we use Patchology Eye Revive FlashPatch 5 Minute Hydrogels.
These little babies are the anytime perk-me-up that help diminish puffiness, fatigue, and dryness with the eye areas. Leaving you refresh in an instant.

Eye Zone Treatment
An eye zone treatment is a nice little mini facial for your eye area that can be added on to any of your facial treatments. Effectively yet gently reduce fine lines, dark circles and puffiness around the eyes while restoring skin tone.
The eye zone treatment pays extra attention to this delicate area involves a concentrated exfoliation with the Clarsonic opal, a lymphatic drainage massage for dark circles and puffiness, and application of specialty eye cream, hydrated eye mask, and antioxidants.
Microneedling is an all natural treatment for anti-aging concerns. Also known as collagen induction therapy which is a procedure that causes controlled micro-injuries to promote the skin’s natural healing response.
At Millefiori we use a device called the Rejuvapen. The Rejuvapen stimulates and regenerates the skin to effectively improve pore size, tone and texture, while rebuilding the elasticity and collagen.
The Rejuvapen allows us to get right up to the lash line and fight off wrinkles, crepey texture and tightening the skin around your under eyes. Pairing this treatment with the Hydrogel Patches and Skinceutical eye products gives patients that WOW factor!
The skin around the eye is 10 times thinner than the skin on the face. As a result, the eye area is more prone to dehydration and the appearance of wrinkling and sagging.
So it’s never too early to start using an eye cream; heck I started using one around 18 years old.
