Under-eye wrinkles, circles and bags are some of the most significant cosmetic concerns today. In a Clinique poll, 53% of women cited under-eye circles as their most significant cosmetic concern. The eyes are nearly always visible and wrinkles and under-eye circles can make a person appear tired or aged beyond their years. Conversely, improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and or under-eye circles can make a person appear refreshed and younger.
The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on the face, typically less than 1mm thick, making it particularly vulnerable to the effects of aging and sun damage. The eye area is a dynamic movement region; developing wrinkles easily due to natural facial expression and motions. Changes with age lead to decreased skin thickness, reduction in fat pads and stretching from gravity. Sun damage and thinner wrinkled skin also lead to pigmentation irregularities and increased visibility of the underlying vasculature. The end result is thinner, wrinkled looking skin often with increased appearance of discoloration and dark under-eye circles.
Anti-aging technologies including peptides, retinol, antioxidants and moisturizers all help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin quality texture and reduce the appearance of under-eye circles.
