Why Are Our Eyes the First to Age?

By Anya Reyes for Belo Medical Group on November 13, 2020

In case you didn’t know, the skin around our eyes is thinner and more fragile compared to that on the rest of our face and body. That’s because this sensitive part lacks elements like fat and muscle that make the skin naturally strong. Add to that our daily exposure to UV rays from digital screens like phones and laptops, and we get an area that is not only delicate, but also prone to aging. Other factors like lack of sleep, stress, and constant tugging or rubbing of the eyes also play a part in the premature aging of the eye area.

The good news is that there are preventive and corrective treatments for our delicate eyes. Here’s a rundown of solutions for common eye problems:

For dark undereye circles

If you’ve been stressed and anxiety is preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep, you’re sure to wake up with dark circles under your eyes. Our Angel Whitening Eyes treatment is our best-selling laser procedure that has a nifty Panda Eyes setting to address the stubborn darkness with no down time at all.

For tired and puffy eyes

For those of us staying up late binge-watching on Netflix movies or generally having more screen time than usual, BioNutriGlow can help refresh your eyes through infusing the vitamin-rich New Cellular Treatment Factor into the eye area. This helps hydrate the skin and reverse the signs of aging and photodamage for that youthful glow.

For drooping eyelids

If you’re guilty of neglecting your eye skin care routine in your 20’s and 30’s and are now seeing signs of aging in your 40’s or 50’s, Thermage Eyes is our best non-surgical solution for that much-needed lift and skin tightening. 

For fine lines and wrinkles

Our daily expressions through our eyes and mouths contribute to the development of wrinkles over time, apart from those that naturally occur as our skin ages. It’s a good thing that our wide array of Injectable Wrinkle Removers can control the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles.

For sagging skin and loss of volume

If you’re in dire need of an extra lift around the eye area, our Fox Eyes treatment can help address the issue. It uses embedded protein threads in varying lengths and are inserted using thin needles in different points of the skin depending on where tightening and contouring is needed. 

For preventive care

If you’re looking for a routine to start with, we recommend our BelofEYE kit. It’s a simple two-step system that helps prevent and address signs of aging. The kit includes the FillMed®️ HXR-Eye Cream that addresses dark circles and reduces puffiness and eye bags, and the FillMed Eye-Recover Mask, a hydrogel-based mask that releases 3-Peptides and Collagen onto the skin for a refreshing effect.
