Why Creams Don’t Work for Under-Eye Wrinkles


Reading Time: 2 minutes

Under-eye wrinkles are some of the most frustrating indicators of age on the face.

That’s why almost every cosmetic line will have their own specialised eye cream. But exactly how effective are these eye creams?

By the time my patients consult me for under-eye wrinkles, they would already have tried at least 3 different “over the counter” eye creams.

Why didn’t these creams work?

The key to reducing and preventing wrinkles is collagen production.

As you age, your body loses the ability to rapidly produce collagen and elastin proteins that give you that desirable smooth skin.

Unfortunately, MANY of these creams fail to stimulate collagen effectively.

3 Effective Treatments for Your Under Eye Wrinkles

“The three main ways to treat these wrinkles are strengthening the skin foundation itself, relaxing the muscles folding the skin, and filling volume losses.”

1. Medical-Grade Retinol creams

Compared to “over the counter” creams, prescription-grade retinol creams are more effective.

2. Lasers

The mainstay of every aesthetic clinic: Lasers improve collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin to fight wrinkles.

3. Botox

When we smile, muscles around the eyes fold the skin above it. Botox relax these muscles.
