Eye Aesthetics Treatments – Can They Help You Look Younger?

eye aesthetics 2

Have you noticed fine lines appearing around your eyes? Your face is typically the area where you begin to notice signs of ageing and it’s really common to notice these signs around your eyes in particular. The appearance of crow’s feet can really affect your self-confidence and make you feel like you look older than you are.

Many people search for remedies to make their eyes look more youthful, and several kinds of makeup, creams, and serums are tailored to rejuvenate the eye area.

However, these remedies will only do so much, and once they’ve been exhausted, you’ll most likely start to look into treatments such as eye aesthetics to reduce the signs of ageing. 

What Are Eye Aesthetics Treatments?

Eye aesthetics are treatments designed to correct, improve and rejuvenate the area around your eyes.

It used to be that the only way to correct ageing in the eye area was with surgery, however with the development of aesthetic treatments, there are now many non-invasive solutions that are just as effective and require less recovery time.

Why Do Your Eyes Show Signs Of Ageing?

Your eyes are often the first area to show signs of ageing. Sun damage plays a small role too but it’s mainly your depleting collagen supplies that affect your appearance. As you age, your collagen supplies reduce significantly, and collagen fibres around your eyes are often the first to lose their resilience. The skin can be up 10 x thinner around your eyes, so the loss of collagen from this area is much more noticeable. 

Some people are more prone to lines and wrinkles than others, and the main reasons lines show are because of:

  • Genetics
  • Dehydration
  • Sun damage
  • Lack of sleep
  • Environmental factors
  • Smoking, alcohol 

3 Common Problems Eye Aesthetics Can Help With 

As the collagen in your skin reduces, your eyes can become prone to dark circles, fine lines, and sagging and drooping eyebrows and it is these common problems that most people seek help with. 

The good news is that there are many eye aesthetic treatments available that will reduce these common signs of ageing.

What Are Crow’s Feet?

Crow’s feet is the term given to the fine lines that form around the outer corners of your eyes. 

What Causes Crow’s Feet?

Crow’s feet occur due to the loss of elasticity in your skin combined with wrinkles caused by repetitive movement in the muscle below the skin. Smiling and squinting are the main culprits behind the crinkles around your eyes. As you age, your skin’s elasticity decreases and regular facial expressions can result in heavier wrinkles around the eyes.

Can Eye Aesthetics Help?

Eye aesthetics help by either stimulating collagen production, naturally firming and tightening the target area over time, or preventing the muscles from creating the creases in the first place.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers work to boost your collagen stores while restoring volume and plumping out the skin. They are the quickest way to generate visible results as they fill in fine lines as soon as they are injected.


Botox is a fast treatment that works beneath your skin’s surface. It stops the underlying muscle activity temporarily, and it’s this muscle activity that can lead to crow’s feet. Botox reduces the visibility of crow’s feet by relaxing the muscles that surround the corners of your eye. It can make a dramatic impact even when you have deep lines and wrinkles. 

PDO Threadlift

A PDO thread lift rejuvenates ageing skin and tightens sagging or loose folds in the under-eye area, as well as targeting crow’s feet. PDO threads have been safely used for decades in many surgical treatments.

They work by lifting and tightening sagging skin as well as stimulating your body’s natural collagen production processes.

What Are Dark Circles Under The Eye?

Dark circles under your eyes are often referred to as hollow or sunken eyes. They are one of the most common issues that patients at Elite Aesthetics ask for help with. Sunken eyes are characterised by the under-eye area looking shadowed with sagging skin and crepey texture. 

What Causes Dark Circles?

There are many causes of dark under-eye circles, the main being:

  • Tiredness
  • Age
  • Lifestyle 
  • Allergies
  • Dehydration
  • Sun exposure
  • Genetics

Can Eye Aesthetics Help?

Many people try home remedies to reduce the appearance of dark circles, but find that these remedies don’t have a big impact. The good news is that eye aesthetics procedures are proven to rejuvenate and reduce the appearance of dark circles.


A popular eye aesthetics treatment is Plexr. This non-invasive treatment uses plasma energy that targets unwanted skin cells. A pen-like device is used to target your chosen area leaving behind lighter and more youthful-looking skin. As the treated area heals, your skin naturally tightens thanks to an influx of new collagen, giving you a fresh, rejuvenated appearance.

Tear Trough Fillers

Tear trough fillers use hyaluronic dermal fillers to plump and smooth out the area around your eye, reducing the appearance of under-eye bags and minimising shadows. This will give you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

What Are Droopy Eyebrows?

Droopy eyebrows are when your eyebrows gradually start to lower as you age. They are typically noticeable near the tail of the brow (where the brow tapers to the temple) in an area where the forehead muscle that lifts the brow is weakest. 

Heavily hooded eyes can make you look tired, stressed or older than your years.

What Causes Drooping Eyebrows?

The main causes of drooping eyebrows are age, genetics, and too much sun exposure. As you age, the muscles that support your eyebrows tend to lose tone and start to sag. This, coupled with a loss of collagen, gives the appearance of drooping eyebrows.

Can Eye Aesthetics Help?

Surgical procedures have always been a popular treatment; however, there are non-invasive eye aesthetics treatments that are just as effective without resorting to going under the knife.


Botox lifts the brows and improves heavy upper eyelids. It paralyses the muscle by preventing the nerve receptors that prompt muscle movement. 

A Botox injection freezes the muscle that causes your brow to droop, the depressor muscle, while the elevator muscle, which raises the eyebrow, remains untouched. Botox should raise the brow by a few millimetres.

Thread Lift

When surgical threads are inserted into your facial skin and pulled tight, they provide an immediate lifting effect. This lifting allows for more eye-to-brow space, and the threads also stimulate collagen production, which helps to regenerate your skin over time, increasing firmness and volume and making your skin look younger.

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well.

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
