Everyone gets them at some point: Wrinkles. Over the years, they appear all over the face. The area under the eyes is particularly susceptible. This is because the skin here is up to three times thinner than the rest of the facial skin and up to six times thinner than that on other areas of the body. In addition, there is no subcutaneous tissue or firm connective tissue under the eyes. There are also significantly fewer sebaceous glands and collagen fibers under the eyes compared to the rest of the face. In addition, our eye area is constantly in motion: due to the use of computers, tablets and smartphones, etc., they move 100,000 times or more every day. Furthermore, emotions are expressed through them. You see: There are many influences on the delicate eye area that can make them look old. Below, we reveal what you can do about wrinkles under the eyes.
Causes of wrinkles under the eyes that you may not think about
At the beginning, we already mentioned some influences that can negatively affect the youthful appearance of the eyes. Other possible causes of wrinkles under the eyes are:
An unhealthy lifestyle
Too much alcohol and nicotine, as well as an unbalanced diet, harm the skin and its appearance. Many people also drink significantly too little water or sugar-free liquids. They sleep too little and sit at a desk/couch too much.
A poor skin care routine
Many women, as well as men, who like to use cosmetics are not aware that extra eye care is useful. Since the skin under the eyes is much thinner than the rest of the face, it also needs finer active ingredients. These should be tailored to the delicate nature of the skin. Active ingredients such as aloe vera, retinol, vitamin C and vitamin E have proven effective. To prevent new wrinkles under the eyes, the care should also contain a sun protection factor. Decongestant ingredients such as caffeine can help with small swellings under the eyes. In addition, an eye cream has a special texture. It prevents the product from running into the eyes, because this can be very unpleasant.
Ways to get rid of wrinkles under the eyes
Attention: our general tips alone cannot remove wrinkles under the eyes. However, they can be supportive.
Make sure you lead a healthy lifestyle with plenty of sleep and a balanced diet rich in antioxidants. These can be found in pears, oranges, tomatoes, raspberries, strawberries, lemons, savoy cabbage, nuts, young spinach and onions, for example. Drink plenty of fluids and exercise! Also, use good skincare products that are designed for the delicate under-eye area. Protect your eye area from the sun’s UV rays with a sun protection factor and sunglasses!
Wrinkle treatment with btx
Expression lines around the eyes, such as crow’s feet, respond optimally to treatment with BTX. The active ingredient causes the muscles in the treated area to relax. As a result of this relaxation, the mimic wrinkles under the eyes smooth out. Read more: BTX Munich
Wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid
In this region, with its particularly thin skin devoid of fatty tissue, we inject the hyaluronic acid deep under the muscle and onto the bone. A superficial application under the skin would result in bluish marks (Tyndall effect) or an unsightly “sausage” formation. To avoid bruising, we use only so-called traumatic cannulas in this region, treating the entire region through a single puncture point. More information: Hyaluronic acid wrinkle treatment Munich
Btl exilis elite™
We can also treat eye wrinkles with radio/ultrasound. During the application, we gently guide the handpiece of the BTL Exilis Elite™ device over your eye area. The surface of the skin heats up to 40 to 43 degrees Celsius, and the deep tissue heats up to about 45 degrees Celsius. This stimulates the body to produce new collagen. The skin surface becomes smoother and firmer. The treatment achieves good results with light to moderately sagging skin as well as with slight swelling (edema).

Treatment of the eyes with a gentle chemical peeling
During medical peeling, we apply certain substances to your skin. This stimulates the skin’s own regeneration mechanisms and cell renewal. The special peeling activates the formation of new elastic and collagen fibers. Furthermore, the production of e.g. the skin’s own hyaluronic acid can be increased. Medical peeling is also suitable for the eye area and can help to reduce fine lines under the eyes. We use the GlykoEye peel for the treatment of wrinkles under the eyes.

Lasemd™ concept: combination of laser treatment and cosmeceuticals.
With LaseMD™, we can also treat wrinkles under the eyes. This is a combination treatment of a laser and associated cosmeceuticals, i.e. special cosmetic products with very high concentrations of active ingredients. With this treatment, we can give your skin more freshness and firmness. More info: LaseMD™ Munich
Fractional co2 laser (eco2)
Fractional CO2 laser treatment is also an excellent way to treat sagging skin and clearly visible wrinkles under the eyes. By ablating the superficial layers of the skin and heating the surrounding tissue, we can bring about a tightening effect. Furthermore, we can smooth even deep wrinkles with the treatment. In some cases, the effect is even comparable to that of a surgical upper or lower eyelid lift! Read more: Laser treatment Munich
