Eat well, sleep well, top up on the SPF, fulfil your daily skincare routine; there are countless things we can do to try to keep the signs of ageing at bay. However, it can seem that no matter how hard we try, and no matter how much money and faith we put into “miracle” moisturisers and serums (you can find out what science says about those in one of my previous blogs), we are still plagued by fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles and a loss of elasticity and luminosity. It seems that our eyes are most susceptible to ageing and seeing it take a hold of our complexion can be really damaging to our self-esteem. Fortunately, at KP Aesthetics in Hale, Altrincham, we have a full range of aesthetic treatments that can encourage the production of new cells and truly promote beautifully youthful skin. Today, I want to look at the ones which are particularly effective for the eyes.
Xela Rederm Treatment
In addition to lines and wrinkles and dark circles, the area under the eyes can begin to sag and appear swollen. Xela Rederm is able to directly target these by addressing the three main causes of the visible signs of ageing; dehydration, damage by free radicals, and a decrease in collagen production.
The Xela Rederm solution is carefully delivered to the delicate eye area where its unique skin rejuvenation formula can begin to work its magic. For cynics of anti-ageing treatments it may sound like a load of mumbo jumbo – it’s not. Xela Rederm uses a combination of hyaluronic and succinic acid. These two substances which support our youthful features are produced naturally by the skin but at a decreasing rate as we age. By reintroducing them to the area around and under the eyes, Xela Rederm treatment can give long-lasting hydration, protection against free radicals and boost the production of new collagen thereby returning volume, luminosity and virtually wrinkle-free skin to the eyes.
Dermapen is one of the most versatile treatments available at KP Aesthetics. It is as effective on ageing skin as it is on scars since it makes use of the body’s natural healing process. Dermapen treatment is widely referred to as skin needling, which is in essence exactly what the Derma FNS Pen does. The reason Dermapen is such a great treatment to target the eyes is because the needle length can be easily changed to accommodate the more delicate skin around the eyes. Making tiny holes in the surface of the skin causes the release of growth factors – just as would happen if you had for example, punctured your finger on a pin – only much less painful. This encourages the breakdown of old collagen and the production of new collagen. The process lifts, tightens, brightens and generally rejuvenates the skin with long-lasting effects.
Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP; it is that infamous treatment dubbed with an equally infamous name, the Vampire Facelift. It all sounds a little too theatrical for my liking; however the results certainly have a wow-factor. Platelet rich plasma involves taking a small sample of blood – as you would at your GP’s – and then separating it in a centrifuge into red blood cells and plasma. The gel-like plasma, rich in those all-important growth factors, is the injected into area around the eyes. Hello, new tissue cells and collagen; hello, firm and revitalised skin.
One of the most popular treatments at KP Aesthetics also happens to be super effective
on ageing eyes. Dermal fillers, delivered carefully to the area around the eyes such as those hollows that typically appear as we age, can gently return long-lasting volume and firmness. Like Xela Rederm, dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic acid, so offer beautifully natural-looking results.
