How to Fix Eye Wrinkles and Crepey Skin

May 28, 2024 | Dermal Fillers, Juvederm


Few signs of aging are more obvious than wrinkles and crepey skin around the eyes. The skin in that area is thinner than on other parts of the body, making it more vulnerable to damage, such as from UV light. In addition, as a person ages, their skin loses collagen and elasticity. The result is crows’ feet, “crepey skin” and other clear signs of aging.

Proper skin care can do a lot to prevent damage, but you can’t entirely halt the march of time. Fortunately, there are numerous ways to deal with eye wrinkles and crepey skin – and you can get them at The Skin Clinic of Scottsdale!

Dealing With Crepey Skin and Eye Wrinkles

Protecting Your Skin

Prevention is always the best medicine when it comes to skin care. There are a few easy ways to protect your skin over the years, and naturally prevent signs of aging.

Blocking ultraviolet (UV) light is one of the most important tricks. UV radiation is one of the biggest causes of premature wrinkles and skin damage, especially around the eyes. Wear sunglasses when you’re outside, and consider using sunscreen on your face on particularly hot or bright days. SkinMedica Essential Defense sunscreens are a great choice here. Plus, using sunscreen will reduce your chances of skin cancer too!

It’s particularly important to protect yourself from the sun in a desert region like Arizona! The summer heat can be absolutely brutal to your skin.

In addition, stay moisturized. Products like SkinMedica Instant Bright Eye Cream can add moisture and other protective measures directly to the skin around your eyes. This easy-to-use cream utilizes Phenylethyl Resorcinol, Hyaluronic Acid, and natural plant extracts protect the skin around your eyes from damage. A proactive moisturizing routine can keep your skin looking youthful for years to come.

Also, avoid tobacco products, like cigarettes. Tobacco is terrible for your skin (and the rest of your body) and directly contributes to skin decay over the years. Smokers really do age faster and more obviously than non-smokers.

Solutions To Eye Wrinkles

If you already have wrinkles or crepey skin around your eyes, don’t worry. You still have plenty of options to keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant.

Many products can help undo the damage of UV rays or wrinkling, such as SkinMedica Eye Repair. This intensive treatment is specifically formulated with Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Retinyl Palmitate, and more – all to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and repair your skin from the inside. Just a few applications, and you’ll see wrinkles, lines, even dark circles fade away.

Juvederm is another excellent option for people with wrinkles or crepey skin around their eyes. It’s a filler made from hydraulic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in your skin. By injecting this filler beneath the skin’s surface, it reverses damage done over the years. Juvederm can add plumpness back to the skin around your eyes, and other facial areas, while also improving the skin’s ability to self-sustain. Better yet, we have numerous formulations of Juvederm, and can select the perfect option for your skin and level of damage.

Laser treatments are another option. There are a few different treatments, depending on your goals:

  • Ablative skin resurfacing, such as Lumenis M22 and Total FX CO2 remove damaged skin with pinpoint-accurate lasers, while stimulating collagen production with heat. This can dramatically improve your appearance even after a single session!
  • Photofacials, like FotoFacial, utilize pulsed light to stimulate your body’s natural healing. This is excellent for people whose skin has been damaged through sun exposure or overuse of tanning booths in their youth.
  • Laser Toning, including the Genesis system, can create a new beginning for your skin. It targets the lowest layer of skin, the dermis, to encourage collagen production, while also fixing ruddy complexions. This is one of the most gentle options, although it does take more treatments to see results.

Finally, there’s always the modern miracle of skin care: injectibles like Botox and Dysport. These use micro-needles to inject botulinum into affected areas, which reduces tension in the muscles beneath the skin of your face. As the muscles loosen up, wrinkles and other age lines are smoothed out. Injectibles are a particularly excellent solution to crow’s feet, proven time and time again.
