Eye Wrinkle Treatments

Your eyes will always be somehow involved in your facial expressions, whether you’re beaming, frowning, squinting or downcast!

These frequent movements, combined with the skin around the eyes being tissue-thin, leaves the eye area especially prone to wrinkle development. Therefore, the eyes are one of the first areas of your body to show your age. What’s more, the skin continues to get thinner and more translucent as we get older. As a result, it’s one of the first areas to show the signs of ageing such as wrinkles, crows feet and dark circles.

Skin-firming proteins collagen and elastin production also slow as we get older and as a result of exposure to the sun. This results in the development of fine lines and wrinkles both under and around the eyes (called “crows feet”).

Thankfully nowadays, there are many effective treatments to help diminish crows feet and other wrinkles around the eyes and fortunately, none of them involve surgery.




Anti-wrinkle eye creams tend to use either Retinol or Peptides as the active ingredient. Here is an explanation of how each one works.

  1. Retinol, also known as Vitamin A1 works to thicken the deeper layers of skin, where wrinkles form. It preserves skin-firming collagen, whilst increasing cell turnover, encouraging younger-looking skin and a smoother texture.
  2. Peptides work by stimulating the skin’s own production of a structural protein called collagen. Collagen is a vital component of plump, youthful-looking skin. Production of this protein gradually declines with age, which is a major cause of wrinkles.
