Preventing and treating under eye wrinkles and crow’s feet

Reviewed by Dr. Hun Kim Thao

What are some recommended methods to treat crow’s feet and under eye wrinkles around the eyes area that are safe? At Grace Skincare Clinic, our dermatologists have picked out some ways to improve the appearance of crow’s feet and under eye wrinkles effectively while remaining completely safe to your skin.

As you reach your 30s, signs of aging skin will become more visible. The fine crow’s feet on the more delicate skin areas or under eye wrinkles will start to give away your age. Many women accept skin aging as an inevitable phase of life and do not even bother putting up a fight, or occasionally apply an eye cream that appears a lot on the TV or is mentioned often by friends. Now, is that all it takes to keep you and your skin healthy?

According to dermatologist Hun Kim Thao, proper skincare methods and suitable products along with clinically proven treatments can help keep your skin youthful-looking and refreshed.

It is recommended that you come to your dermatologist for help with any skin issue that bothers you, especially when “the time” has come for the uninvited crow’s feet and under eye wrinkles. With state-of-the-art medical devices and techniques, an experienced dermatologist can make the hated age indications go away in a blink of an eye.

The formation of crow’s feet explained by dermatologists

According to dermatologists at Grace Skincare Clinic, the skin around the eyes area does not have as many oil glands as another skin zone such as the T zone, the creases of the nose, or the cheeks. In addition, this skin area is 10 times more delicate than other skin zones. As our skin ages, the amount of natural collagen and elastin gradually decreases, which results in inflated-looking skin.

Constant movements of facial muscles around 10,000 times a day to create our emotional expressions also contribute to wrinkle formation. Most facial movements such as smiling, worry, blinking or frowning can make the wrinkles in the eyes and forehead area more noticeable. The oil glands are in the dermis, or the skin layer beneath the surface, produce a waxy or oily matter called sebum to keep the skin soft, hydrated, and waterproof. They are more easily found in thicker skin areas, namely the forehead, nose, and cheeks. At the outer corner eyes area, there are not as many oil glands and the skin also has deeper creases.

In summary, dermatologists believe that the formation of wrinkles, especially around the eyes area, is affected by various elements, including natural aging, genetic tendency, facial movement, stress, skincare habit, skin hydration, sleep habit, and more.

Reducing the visibility of crow’s feet and under eye wrinkles with natural methods

To reduce the appearance of under eye wrinkles, it takes a laborious yet combination of a proper at-home skincare regimen and high-tech clinical treatments. For skin that has just started to age with little to no crow’s feet, a recommended program includes a reverse aging treatment, a collagen reproduction boosting treatment, and skin texture improvement.

| If you are concerned about aging skin, using an anti-aging product is just NOT enough. The maintenance of healthy skin and prevention of problems is the key of anti-aging tips to delay skin aging and to soften the effects of your skin as you age.

Laser treatment, vitamin C, proper skincare regimen, and choosing the right eye treatment

As the skin around the eyes is more sensitive and vulnerable, dermatologist Hun Kim Thao suggests: “You should opt for mild eye cream featuring powerful anti-aging ingredients, such as Q10 or collagen. It should also be suitable for your skin condition and easy to absorb. In many cases, bags under the eyes are the result of a gradual loss of elasticity in your skin.

For this issue, I would recommend you to get some specialized treatments at prestigious beauty centers, along with vitamin C electrophoresis and other non-invasive laser treatments. This approach may result in naturally firmer and more elastic skin. Whenever convenient, you can also do some quick yoga exercises for the face and cleanse your skin carefully after each time you wear makeup.”

The most effective way to prevent and treat under eye wrinkles is to establish and maintain a methodical skincare routine as well as a healthy lifestyle. It is widely known that sufficient hydration is the key to healthy and youthful-looking skin. You are best to consume the daily recommended amount of water as it helps boost the skin metabolism, detoxification, maintains its elasticity, and nourishes the skin.

Some other tips to maintain the youthful appearance of the skin are proper protection against harmful sun rays, regular exercise, and a healthy sleep schedule. Nowadays, high-tech skin treatments at reputable dermatology clinics are gaining popularity.

Collagen and vitamin C electrophoresis are among the highly effective anti-aging treatments that hydrate the skin as well as boost natural collagen production, result in firmer and younger-looking skin. At Grace Skincare Clinic, crow’s feet treatment with Alma Q Laser is also a preferred method as it reduces the appearance of fine wrinkles and leaves your skin naturally brightened.

Clinical solution for crow’s feet and wrinkles

For cases of wrinkles that cannot be improved by natural and non-surgical methods, it is time to seek help from dermatology professionals. Here are a few methods recommended by dermatologists at Grace Skincare Clinic to help you erase the signs of aging:

Dermal filler

Dermal filler is the current number one treatment for customers of Grace Skincare Clinic. The filler solution has more than 90% saline and 10% Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which structure is similar to the HA that is naturally produced in the human body. According to dermatologists, the filler is highly safe and brings instantly noticeable effects. The best part is, the dermal filler does not cause any side effects.

However, it is recommended that you have the procedure performed by a qualified dermatologist and only high-quality dermal filler that is trusted and validated by global professionals should be used. If you choose to get a filler injection at Grace Skincare Clinic, our experienced dermatologists will guarantee your safety and you will look 10 years younger after the very first treatment.

Botox – a magical fix that needs thorough consideration

Botox is known as a miraculous treatment and is a go-to for many Hollywood superstars when it comes to wrinkles. It freezes the visible wrinkles in the eyes area, forehead, or the corners of the mouth.

Thanks to its superior effectiveness in preventing and treating existing wrinkles compared to other methods on the market, Botox is hailed as the best non-invasive anti-aging solution.

With materials supplied by Juvederm, the world’s most prestigious cosmetic solution supplier, trusted by cosmetic clinics that work with Hollywood stars, approved by both FDA and CE – and our highly experienced dermatologists with more than 15,000 success stories, we at Grace Skincare Clinic are confident about bringing you only the best services and products.

I received acne facial and peel every other week and the service was superb! Each procedure was well explained and Dr.Thao was very attentive. I loved her holistic way of approach to improve patient's skin. Not only she prescribed very effective acne gel but also shared great tips such as reducing the amount of simple carb intake, cutting down sugar, and most importantly highlighting the importance of getting enough sleep. She even recommended a well known doctor in town who could help me with my sleeping problem. In addition, the price was very reasonable and I was very happy with all the service I got from Grace Skin Clinic. Oh Dr. Thao even asked her staff to make me a cup of tea one day as she she thought I looked overly exhausted. I was very moved. How warm hearted she is! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to check up their skin and improve their skin. Amazing place!"

This place is amazing; they help me improve my terrible skin condition which had affected my identity, and my confidence for many years. I have been visiting Grace Clinic during summer time for the past two years, and every time I am here, they create a different program in order to fit my skin condition and my limited time. Furthermore, people from Grace Clinic always greet me with warm hearts. They once invited me to have boba tea with them which made me no longer feel like a customer but a friend which it has created a friendship overtime. I cannot stress how highly I would recommend this place. Again, they are amazing and very professional. There is one thing, you can do walk-in just fine but it would be better if you schedule the appointment so they can prepare and create the best service for you.

I absolutely love the ladies of Grace Skincare. I was staying in Saigon for 6 months and came here with acne and a congested skin from my travels. So happy I found them! Their prices are reasonable compared to other “expat” clinic that I went to. I bought the 10 facial package for a really good price and am really happy with the result of my skin after following all of their consultations. Acne has cleared up and now we’re focusing on my other skin concerns such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this clinic. They truly want you to walk out with skin you feel confident in. I’m going to miss this place and the ladies I got to connect with during my time here.   Amazing results · Expert facials · Great deals · Professional products ·Licensed skin care professional · Experienced skin care professionals

Deanna Hong – HCMC, Yoga Instructor

Hey guys it’s been 3 weeks since we came for our treatment. I can honestly say it’s the best I have had done.  Andrew and I look fresh without being overdone. We both had people say how refreshed we look after our holiday. Honestly they wouldn’t be saying that if they knew how much beer and yummy Vietnamese food we consumed when we were there. I can honestly say Andrew and I will be back. And I am telling all my friends how fantastic you guys are and how professional the consultation was. I have yet to find someone in Australia who is so thorough. Thank you, Kylie

I had a acne treatment here last month and now it's improved a lot. I must say that this place is very professional, modern equipment, especially the thoughtful doctor! I'm impressed!  

Ms Nana, HCMC, tourist

Alexis Linh Ly, HCMC- Business Owner

The owners are wonderful people. I had a good experience and can sincerely and highly recommend everything about Grace Skincare Clinic!

Sandra Menhart – New York, NY, Visiting Profesor

I was so embarrassed with the scars and pigmentation marks on my face. These are from old sports injuries and harsh products on my legs from childhood accidents. I am fed up with using so much concealer makeup on my face and am never able to wear a skirt with confidence. I heard about the Grace Skincare Clinic pigmentation lightening treatment from a friend.  I took 6 treatments & used skincare product as Dr. Thao  instructed  and now my skin is beautiful and permanently clear. It was worth every penny.

Laura May

as Tet is coming, I highly recommend this place for a weekend retreat, skin detoxing or even an urgent package to soothe and smooth your skin. I got back my healthy skin after just 02 week following the instruction of Dr Thao Hun and it cost me 200,000 for medical consultation fee only. Wonderful!
