Even using expensive creams, serums and eye masks does not guarantee that wrinkles and age spots will not appear on the cover by the age of 40. When cosmetics are ineffective, a more professional approach to problem solving is needed - salon treatments. Everything is complicated by the fact that the skin of the eyelids is very delicate - not all cosmetic manipulations are safe for the cover. Only a specialist will recommend the best way to rejuvenate, taking into account the patient's age and existing skin imperfections. There are several effective hardware and injection procedures that can be included in eyelid skin care routine.
Mesotherapy: Introduction of anti-aging cocktails under the skin
Mesotherapy is an injection procedure in which rejuvenating "cocktails" are placed under the skin in the eyelids. Their composition is selected individually, taking into account the existing problems with the cover. You can register for mesotherapy sessions after 30 years.
The active components that have a positive effect are:
- hyaluronic acid.
- trace elements (magnesium, zinc).
- vitamins (H, group B).
- elastin and collagen.
The skin in the eyelid area after the injections is smoothed and more elastic, wrinkles and "bags" under the eyes are removed. Several mesotherapy sessions are usually required to achieve the desired effect.
This salon procedure is quite painful. For some time after the injections, bruises and swelling on the eyelids can be observed.
Biorevitalization: injection of hyaluronic acid under the skin
Biorevitalization is an injection salon procedure in which hyaluronic acid is injected under the skin. Beauticians recommend using such "beauty injections" at least after 35 years.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is contained in the cells of the integument. It helps retain moisture in tissues and maintain healthy looking skin. The amount of hyaluronic acid only decreases with age - this leads to the fact that the skin becomes dry and wrinkles appear, its elasticity is lost. The biorevitalization process aims to replenish the "reserves" of hyaluronic acid. It helps get rid of wrinkles and dry skin. Beauticians believe that this procedure is more effective than mesotherapy - the injected substance is more concentrated in composition, which means that it is possible to reduce the number of sessions.
The time-controlled process takes a maximum of 50 minutes. To make it less painful, the beautician applies anesthetic cream to the patient's skin. Injection traces on the lid become completely invisible after 2-4 days. To achieve the desired effect, 5-10 sessions are required, which are carried out at a certain time interval.
Biorevitalization has one major disadvantage: due to the concentrated composition of the injections after the session, allergic reactions cannot be ruled out.
Lymph drainage: massage for eyelid skin
If you are afraid of injection procedures, include lymphatic drainage sessions in your eyelid care that will improve blood flow to the tissues. This is a special massage of the area around the eyes that helps remove puffiness and "blue" on the eyelids, as well as any buildup of lymph under the skin.
Salon massages can be done manually or in hardware. Manual lymphatic drainage is carried out using special cosmetics so that the movements of the master do not cause unpleasant sensations, and the cells of the lining receive the necessary nutrients. If you have mastered the massage technique, you can do it at home too. Hardware lymphatic drainage involves applying vacuum or microcurrents to the area around the eyes.
RF lifting: hardware salon procedure for removing wrinkles
RF lifting is also known as non-surgical blepharoplasty. The procedure shows excellent results - the cover is smoothed, becomes elastic and taut. It is believed that RF lifting is the most effective technique for rejuvenating beauty sessions. And the procedure is often used to rejuvenate the lining in the eyelid area - it won't harm the delicate lining.
The essence of RF lifting is the effect of radio frequencies on the skin, which are converted into thermal energy. The deep layers of the dermis are "warmed up", which stimulates the activation of the synthesis of elastin and collagen in cells.
The effect is almost immediately visible:
- the network of folds, swellings and circles under the eyes disappears;
- The upper and lower eyelids are tightened.
The RF lifting procedure is virtually painless, no special preparation is required, there is only a minimal list of contraindications - not all salon procedures have as many benefits.
3-4 RF lifting sessions are usually required for the expected result. The break between the procedures is 2-3 weeks. To maintain the positive effect, it is recommended to do 1-2 sessions of RF lifting per year in the future.
Peeling: active skin cleansing
Many beauty salons offer chemical peels for women. They can also be applied to the eye area. However, since the cover is very sensitive, the specialist selects a gentle mixture of components - these are usually cosmetic products based on fruit extracts. Chemical peeling may also be indicated for owners of sensitive skin - but only if there are no contraindications!
The procedure aims to actively cleanse the skin - dead cells are removed, the cover is smoothed, its color is evened out. The peeling is often used as a preparatory stage for the application of anti-aging masks and serums.
Subcutaneous filler: Fast relief from wrinkles
filler is a gel with hyaluronic acid. It is injected under the skin to remove wrinkles, "blue" under eyes and tear lines. Mesotherapy also uses a "cocktail" with hyaluronic acid in the composition. The main difference between sessions, however, is that fillers are denser supplements that not only promote the natural production of collagen and elastin, but also literally fill in wrinkles and any uneven areas of skin. Salon eyelid care uses gels that are less dense than those needed to even out the skin on the face. Only a specialist will recommend which component to use.
Experts recommend filler-based injection methods that are not older than 40 years. But here, too, a lot depends on the individual characteristics of the patient's body - professional advice is required! During the session, the filler is injected into the eyelids using a special technology. The drug is distributed over the entire periorbital area. It is noteworthy that a positive result lasts for up to 1. 5 to 2 years.
Please note that the eyelids can swell after injecting the fillers under the skin. However, this effect is inherent in all injection anti-aging procedures - time passes and coverage is balanced. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are characterized by another special feature: after an active ingredient has been injected under particularly thin skin, bluish stripes may be visible in the light. The effect only occurs after the gel has completely dissolved - after about six months.
