The Eyes of March
3/19/2013 9:03 AM
We all know that it is important to take care of your eye health by visiting your Optometrist. But how are you taking care of the area around your eyes? Have your dark circles worsened? Are you noticing tiny bumps on the eye lid or under the eye? Are those fine lines turning into wrinkles (a.k.a. crow's feet)? All of these issues are a natural part of aging and daily stress in our lives, but don't worry, there is a silver lining! And Advanced Aesthetics of Arkansas has it!
Your first line of defense
is using a daily eye serum, lotion, or cream. Don't bother investing in pricy procedures if you are not strengthening the skin and providing it with the proper nutrients. We encourage, as a part of a normal skin care routine, everyone to start using an eye serum or cream in their twenties! Many cosmeceutical lines, such as SkinMedica
, SkinCeuticals, Obagi, NIA 24, Teamine, Avene, Kinerase MD
, have formulas to work on several different eye concerns. We also carry Clarisonic Opal for the eyes, that massage and push the treatment deeper into the skin while reducing puffiness, fine lines and dark circles! The peptides and antioxidants are encapsulated into smaller particles that your cells absorb and use. But don't feel overwhelmed by all the products out there, just come see us and we can help you pick the most effective treatment for your eyes and show you the proper way to apply it.
Plus, with a few lifestyle changes you can dramatically improve the skin around your eyes. For example, if you are noticing the small bumps on your eye lids, it could be that you have high cholesterol and it is a good idea to see your doctor. Or you could just be using an eye cream that is too rich for your skin. And for dark circles, you could be a major allergy sufferer and get little sleep.
But if it is wrinkles and sagging skin that concerns you, consider our Exilis Skin Tightening treatment for the eyes. It is an easy treatment to reduce fine lines and improve laxity around the eyes. Click here
