The Skin Saint’s Guide to Under Eye Treatments

Dark circles and under eye bags are the envy of nobody ‑ except maybe vampires. Then of course there are wrinkles and lack of elasticity, that can also be unwelcome guests that never seem to leave. Why does this even have to happen?

Under eye bags appear because of changes in the fat structure and a decline in skin elasticity, whereas dark circles are caused by visible blood vessels, excess pigment, or fluid build‑up beneath the eyes. They can make you look older and more tired than you really are, which we sure don’t want! Then, wrinkles form from our repetitive expression and muscle movement, as well as develop from sun exposure leading to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. 

But don’t feel like you just have to suffer with them forever! We know the best treatments to help you lighten, brighten, tighten, and smooth those under eye problems, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed. Keep reading to find out what they are!

Botox for Eye Rejuvenation

Crow’s feet are one of the first signs of aging for many people and nobody really wants to LOOK like they’re aging. Fortunately, our good friend Botox is here to help. 

By injecting Botox around the eyes, these muscles can be relaxed, removing the fine lines and giving you a more youthful and fresh look. Just a few pokes, in a five-minute session, and you look ten (or twenty) years younger for 3‑4 months! Almost like magic! 

So smile away, knowing that the only thing people are noticing….is your beautiful smile!

Lasers Treatment for Eye Rejuvenation

Laser treatments can help to resurface the skin around the eyes by stimulating collagen, making the skin smoother and visibly younger. This helps everything from wrinkles to dark circles, leaving you with a brighter and lighter under eye area.

There are three main types of lasers that work best for the eyes:

PRP for Eye Rejuvenation

Platelet‑Rich Plasma or PRP is AMAZING for correcting under eye bags and dark circles, as an alternative to filler, which is great if you want to eliminate any complications, or fill areas like under the eyes without lumps and bumps. 

Plus you’re using your OWN body’s material so there’s no fear of negative reactions!

Using your very own plasma you’ll see:

  • 10‑12% thicker skin
  • Anti‑inflammatory & aids healing
  • Stimulates collagen & elastin production
  • Rebuilds lines, and texture 
  • Fills hollows under eyes
  • Results that last up to two years

Peels for Eye Rejuvenation

Peels exfoliate the dead skin cells that give the skin a dull appearance while stimulating the growth of healthy tissue. These treatments strengthen the skin below the eyes, making undereye dark circles less prominent, fine lines noticeably reduced, and texture smoothed.

Some of our Favorite peels for under eye bag treatment:

Microneedling for Eye Rejuvenation

Micro‑needling is a non‑surgical treatment that uses tiny stainless steel needles to stimulate your body’s own collagen‑producing capabilities to resurface and tighten your eyes. RF‑based micro‑needling, in particular, can reduce eye bags, as a surgical alternative. It’s also safe for all ethnicities, and there is really no downtime, which makes us love it even more!

Our Favorite Microneedling treatments for under eyes: 

Dermal Filler Treatments for Eye Rejuvenation

Filler is a great option for filling in the hollows of your eyes instantly! The skin under our eyes is thin and delicate and loses volume as we age, leading to a more sunken in, hollow look in the tear trough area. This creates shadows, making the areas under your eyes look much darker. Getting a few pokes of filler in this area can restore the lost volume in just minutes, leaving you with a brighter, more youthful look that can last a year!

Pro tip: Have the injector use a cannula to minimize bruising.

Thread Lift Treatments for Eye Rejuvenation

PDO Threads are so fun and versatile! They basically give you an instant facelift without surgery and no downtime! Threads can be used to pull back and tighten the skin around the eyes for a more sleek, defined, and youthful look. This year the fox eye look has been all the rage as it redefines the face and helps give your eyes an immediate lift. 

Threads can look a bit intimidating but know that this is a procedure that takes just minutes to do. The threads dissolve in a few months, and the resulted stimulated collagen keeps the skin tight for up to a year, so though this look is long-lasting, it’s not permanent. This can be a fun way to make natural‑looking adjustments to your face that make a big impact!

Plasma Treatments for Eye Rejuvenation

We’re huge on plasma treatments at FACE as they’re so advanced that they can do more than most lasers! Two of our absolute favorite treatments are Jett Plasma and NeoGen PSR, which both do wonders for tightening and brightening your eyes!

Jett Plasma Lift is great for skin tightening, collagen production, and wrinkle reduction and has almost instant results, lasting more than a year! This is the only direct‑current medical plasma device that uses real plasma and is able to pass through cell membranes. Plasma is so powerful, it’s the closest non‑surgical alternative to blepharoplasty. 

NeoGen PSR uses plasma to treat the WHOLE architecture of the skin, to dramatically help fine lines, wrinkles, elasticity, pigmentation, scarring, and more, all in one treatment, leading to near‑flawless eyes. Whereas Jett Plasma is more for targeted areas, NeoGen can be used globally. 

Plasma is produced inside the handpiece through the combination of nitrogen gas and ultra‑high radiofrequency. The plasma penetrates the superficial and deeper levels of the dermis to replace damaged collagen and encourage new collagen and elastin growth, resulting in smoother, brighter, and tighter eyes!

In most cases, 12‑14 days are needed for social downtime post-Neogen, and only 5 days post-Jett Plasma. Only 1‑2 treatments are needed.
