Your eyes are the first thing people see when they look at your face. However, wrinkles or sagging under the eyes can prematurely age your appearance. Now you can choose laser skin tightening from Avalon Laser to tighten excess skin and reduce wrinkles under the eyes for a more youthful look. Wrinkles can be the result of any one or a combination of factors: sun-damage, smoking, hormonal changes, or facial expressive activity in addition to the natural aging process. Poor diet or nutritional habits and uneven sleep patterns also contribute to wrinkle formation. Also, collagen can decrease at a rate of 1% per year after age 40 in normal individuals and sun exposure accelerates this aging process. With loss of collagen and damage to the collagen fibers, they become less able to support the upper layers of the skin. However, by using laser wrinkle reduction, light can be used to stimulate the body’s own collagen layer to replenish itself. As your body then begins to replenish the lost collagen, fines lines and wrinkles gradually begin to fade as they are filled in by the new collagen. For much deeper wrinkles and folds that laser alone cannot fix, injectables such as Botox and Juvederm are used to relax the muscle and/or fill in the folds.
