Let us explain the causes of under-eye wrinkles and provide treatments to prevent and reduce these fine lines so that your eyes will no longer reveal your true biological age.
As you get older, fine lines begin to appear on your face, especially under your eyes. These under-eye wrinkles make you look older, tired and even make your eyes look smaller. This article will introduce the causes of fine lines and skin care methods to help you get rid of under-eye wrinkles and restore your confidence with a radiant smile.
What causes under-eye wrinkles? Repetitive facial expression can lead to fine lines and wrinkles in the eye area
The skin under your eyes is extremely thin. (The skin on the face can be up to 1 millimeter thick. However, the skin under the eyes, is only around 0.4 mm thick) Likewise, the area around the eye has fewer elastin fibers and fat cells, but more muscle tissue as emotional expressions link with eye movements. On average, most people blink around 10,000 times a day.
How to smooth out the under-eye wrinkles?
With the new development of modern cosmetic and medical technology, many people will use cosmetic- medical treatment to rejuvenate the skin.
- Botox injections
Over time, the repeated contraction of muscles when blinking and rubbing eyes can cause dynamic wrinkles. Injection of small quantities of botulinum toxin can relax certain muscles around the eyes and prevent the appearance of fine lines.
- Picosecond Lasers
The high-energy focusing probe of picosecond lasers helps disrupt the aging process by triggering the production of collagen and elastin without damaging the skin epidermis to help revitalize the skin. This method helps to achieve the effect of smoothing out the fine lines under the eyes.

It is recommended you carefully follow the aftercare instructions and maintain a proper skincare routine.
Four useful tips to treat under-eye wrinkles
Age and daily living habits affect the speed of skin aging. To help reduce the appearance of fine lines under the eyes follow these 4 tips.
- Wear sunscreen every day
Ultraviolet radiation is one of the main factors that causes skin aging. The skin around the eyes is delicate and sensitive to sunlight. Unprotected sun exposure can weaken the strength of the supporting elastin fibers, which intensifies the formation of fine lines around the eyes. Ensure that you generously apply sunscreen when going out, especially around the eyes. You can also wear sunglasses and a sun hat to block direct sunlight.
- Clean properly
If the residual makeup or old and waste skin cells are accumulated around the eyes for a long time, it will not only cause the skin to deteriorate, but also lead to fine lines. When washing your face or removing makeup, you can choose a mild and non-irritating wash-off product to properly clean the eye area.
- Try not to make overactive facial movements
Making repeated and expressive facial movements such as laughing, squinting and frowning can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles develop from these repeated facial movements. Over time they could become static wrinkles.
- Moisturizing every day
The skin around the eyes has few sweat glands and the water evaporates quickly, so it is easy for fine lines to appear due to dryness. Therefore, you should use eye serums or eye creams and other skin care products that slow down the loss of collagen. It is recommended you choose skin care products that contain repair enzymes or hyaluronic acid.
