Eye Wrinkles And Other Signs Of Ageing - Why Do Your Eyes Look Old And Tired?

Ageing, as we are all well aware, comes to us all. But certain imperfections make themselves known much earlier than others. I am talking, of course, about those that emerge on the top half of the face and, more specifically, around the eyes.

These include, among other things, eye wrinkles, eye bags and dark circles.

Read on below to discover why the skin around the eyes is more susceptible to ageing than other parts of the body, and how my skin rejuvenation treatments can help to give it a crucial lift. 

Why Do Eye Wrinkles and Eye Bags Form? 

As with all things in life, nothing lasts forever. And nowhere is this more evident than in the condition of our skin, which, due to a natural loss of collagen and a range of other, more manageable factors, loses its elasticity and tautness over time.

One of the first areas to experience this change is the skin around the eyes, and this is because of how thin it is in comparison to the skin that sits elsewhere on our bodies. 

In the case of eye wrinkles, these often develop as a result of the constant contraction of muscles under the skin.

When we smile, eye wrinkles such as crow’s feet assume prominence, etching their way into permanence as we get older. 

Eye bags, which can appear swollen, reveal sagginess or take on the form of dark circles, make themselves known as our supporting tissues weaken.

This is an unavoidable bodily response to age that, much like eye wrinkles, can be exacerbated by poor sleep, smoking and excessive screen time. 

Eye Wrinkles and The Pandemic 

As much as eye wrinkles and eye bags are products of time’s passing, the stresses of modern life, and indeed, the pandemic, have definitely played a role in the increased development of both compromised skin around the eyes and patients’ desire to seek treatment for these issues. 

I mentioned above that lack of sleep and increased screen time are contributing factors to the declining condition of the skin, and it’s easy to see how the fear, uncertainty and doomscrolling that have accompanied the pandemic have made our eye wrinkle problems much worse.

Treatment For Eye Wrinkles And Eye Bags 

At Appearance Based Medicine in Marlow, I offer several non-surgical solutions for the treatment of eye wrinkles and eye bags.

And whilst these are all extremely effective, they will only ever be performed after a pre-treatment consultation has determined the best course of action for your requirements. 

What is a Endybleph procedure


The Endybleph eyelift is a procedure that makes use of the fantastic radiofrequency technology that sits at the heart of the ENDYMED Intensif device.

In this treatment, collagen production is ignited by heating the skin at a deep level, with new tissue growth contributing to the elimination of eye bags, the tightening of the eyelids and an instant lift to the overall area. 

Three Endybleph treatment sessions are required, spaced 4-5 weeks apart. 

Viscoderm Hydrobooster

Developed by the makers of the ever-popular Profhilo®, Viscoderm Hydrobooster is perfect for the treatment of eye wrinkles such as crow’s feet.

A popular injectable, it is notable for improving the eye skin’s stretchiness and elasticity, instantly swapping out a tired look for one that is visibly more radiant. 

Wrinkle-Relaxing Injections 

Another solution for the management of dynamic eye wrinkles such as crow’s feet is wrinkle-relaxing injections.

When these are administered, the muscular activity that results in the formation of eye creases is inhibited, without leaving behind a frozen look. 

Targeted injections can make crow’s feet less noticeable, with top-up treatments recommended to maintain results. 

iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex 

Away from the treatment room, your clinical results can be supplemented via the use of iS Clinical’s Youth Eye Complex.

A best-selling formula composed of powerful antioxidants, peptides, proteins and growth factors, this product is recognised for the immediate and long-term changes it can make to dark circles, crow’s feet and puffiness.
