It’s important to understand that there are several treatment options available in the market which may achieve similar results from the ones listed here. This article is also not meant to suggest that the treatments we offer are the only sole or best options.
Wrinkles are the creases and folds that form in the skin as you age. Many factors can contribute to wrinkles such as sun exposure, smoking, poor nutrition and lifestyle choices. In addition to these environmental factors, wrinkles are also caused by our natural aging process as your skin loses its elasticity over time due to reduced collagen production.
Sun damage is one of the most common causes of wrinkles. Extensive exposure to UV rays from the sun breaks down collagen and elastin fibers in your skin, leading to wrinkles appearing more prominently around the eyes, mouth and forehead areas which are more exposed than other parts of your body.
Smoking is another significant contributor to wrinkles due to its effects on blood flow constriction and collagen destruction in the skin.
Poor nutrition and lifestyle choices can also lead to wrinkles appearing more frequently as diets high in processed foods, sugars, unhealthy fats and bad habits such as excessive drinking or lack of sleep can cause wrinkles to form prematurely.
As you age, your body gradually loses its ability to produce natural oils which help keep the skin hydrated, soft and supple. This causes wrinkles to become more visible due to the weakened elasticity of the skin. In addition, wrinkles are often caused by genetics as well.
This delicate area requires a special level of expertise, which can be found in clinics and doctors with experience in this field. Treatments most often used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes include botox injections, thermage, laser therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers. The focus on this blog post will be one of the many treatment options – Fotona SmoothEye®

This innovative technology works by delivering a light energy pulse beneath the surface of the skin, targeting specific areas with precision and stimulating collagen production without causing any damage to the skin’s surface.

This non-ablative treatment mode developed by Fotona utilises the technology of “feather-like” non-ablative pulses with precisely controlled temperature deposition. This optical energy is delivered in a unique, sub-second long pulse sequence which prevents overheating and achieves homogeneous heating within several hundred microns of the tissue.
The intense, controlled surface tissue heating stimulates collagen remodeling and neocollagenesis, leading to an overall improvement in wrinkles, laxity and elasticity around the eyes. With minimal downtime or discomfort for patients, this innovative technology helps reduce wrinkles and restore youthfulness to your complexion – all with just one session.
