How To Reduce Signs Of Aging Around Eyes
Our eyes begin to look hollow when we lose the fat layer along the lower eyelid and upper check. Unfortunately, this gives the impression that we’re older than we actually are and also makes us look tired. At our San Antonio aesthetic med spa, this is one of the signs of aging around eyes that we treat on a regular basis.
A few years ago, Tyra Banks taught us how to ‘smize’ on the America’s Next Top Model show. That is, how to ‘smile with your eyes’. Skip a few years forward, and who would have imagined that focusing on our eyes would become so important.
Whether you’re an avid user of video calls, busy work life schedule, or dealing with other stress related issues, you might have added unnecessary circles under the eyes. But don’t panic, today we are discussing some of the most popular ways to reduce the signs of aging around the eyes.
Let’s dig in!
The top layer of our skin becomes thinner as we age due to the reduction of collagen production. As a result, thin skin becomes crinkly and fine lines become more visible as well as causing saggy skin.
How To Treat Sagging Skin

- The volume is lost mostly due to aging, fillers are ideal for restoring the fullness of areas. Depending on the active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and collagen stimulating, fillers differ greatly. Additionally, with a lifespan of generally 18 months, the effects of fillers last longer than Botox.
Crow’s Feet and Smile Lines
Years of smiling, squinting, and laughing produces crow’s feet and smile lines (glabella wrinkles). As the years go by, our bodies produce less collagen type 1, which results in skin becoming wrinkly and saggy. Just because we have signs of aging around the eyes and mouth does not mean we have to avoid ever smiling or laughing again.

Everyone wants beautiful, perfectly sculpted eyebrows. But aging not only causes our eyebrows to become thin, but they also grow sparse. Like the hairs on our scalp, our eyebrows grow, shed, and regrow. And due to aging, our eyebrow hairs’ growing process slows and hair starts to thin.
