How to get rid of under eye wrinkles: best treatments


If all those endless tubs of eye cream won’t vanquish your under-eye wrinkles, then it’s time to explore our more promising non-surgical treatments that can deliver real results. We break down the top causes of under eye wrinkles and the best treatments to treat them and add brightness to your face.

What are under eye wrinkles?

Since the area under your eyes (also known as the periorbital hollow) has thin skin and blood vessels, it can be sensitive to showing early signs of ageing like wrinkles and volume loss.

What causes under eye wrinkles?

In order to maintain youthful skin, collagen is essential for supporting the facial structure.  As we age, our levels of collagen and elastin reduce which means our skin loses its elasticity. Ageing is definitely the most common cause for wrinkles and fine lines under the eyes. Other contributing factors that accelerate this process include:

  • Smoking
  • Sun exposure / UV radiation
  • Environmental factors
  • Movements and expressions that are repetitive.
  • Genetic traits


How does it work?

To reduce fine lines, smile lines, dynamic folds, and overactive muscles, Botox relaxes these areas, restoring a youthful, fresher appearance.

Will Botox treatment be painful?

Our Botox patients do not feel any pain, and this is thanks to our practitioners’ skills and the needles used are extremely fine. At the most, during treatment you may feel a very mild and temporary sting, but post-treatment you will also not feel any pain.

How much downtime is needed?

There is no downtime with Botox, and the procedure is quick, non-invasive, and proven to be safe. Botox treatment takes an average of 20 minutes, and a great aspect is that you can resume your normal activities right away.

How does it work?

In Ultherapy®, the skin is stimulated with ultrasound energy to produce new collagen and elastin. Using micro-focused ultrasound (MFU-V) energy, it targets deep layers of the skin without damaging its surface.

By strengthening existing collagen and generating fresh, new collagen, it gives your skin structure again.

Will Ultherapy treatment be painful?

Everyone’s sensitivity to discomfort varies. We do say that any discomfort may occur when the ultrasound energy is delivered, however it should be noted that this is a temporary sensation and a positive sign that the collagen-building process has been triggered.

Our expert practitioners will advise you on pain management before your treatment.

How much downtime is needed?

In contrast to a surgical face-lift, there is no downtime: you can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Chemical Peels

How does it work?

Chemical skin peels involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to cast off and peel off. This gives the result of a smooth, less wrinkled complexion.

Is there a particular peel we would recommend?

By chemically exfoliating the skin, the glycolic peel penetrates deep to improve and enhance the appearance of the skin. At your initial consultation, your physician will provide all the advice you need.

Will Chemical Peel treatment be painful?

It is well known that during a chemical peel you may feel a burning sensation for a short while. After which this becomes a temporary stinging sensation.

How much downtime is needed?

With a light chemical peel, you’ll be glad to hear there is zero to minimal downtime. Depending on the patient, it may be recommended you avoid getting your face wet, exercising, or using exfoliants etc. We would encourage wearing sunscreen, but our practitioner will explain it all at your consultation, so you are fully prepared for post-treatment.

What does it do for under eye wrinkles?

When applied very carefully to the under-eye area the skin can appear tighter when glycolic acid stimulates collagen production. This can greatly reduce the need for cosmetic foundation and improve the appearance of blemishes, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and acne-prone skin.
