Tired-looking eyes characterized by periorbital hyperpigmentation, puffiness, lines, and wrinkles may contribute to an aged and fatigued appearance. It is for this reason that rejuvenation of the skin around the eyes has become one of the most sought-after treatment options in modern skin science.
PERIORBITAL SKIN AGING
The skin around the eyes has the thinnest epidermis of the human body, and is more sensitive to external factors such as physical or chemical irritation, chronic sun exposure and otherenvironmental stressors.
Signs of aging have been noted to appear earlier around the periorbital skin area than in other parts of the face (Figure 1). This may be due to a combination of external causes and the body’s intrinsic elements such as thin periorbital skin, chronic and persistent movements (such as blinking), a lesser amount of subcutaneous fat, and the paucity of sebaceous glands in the area.1,2

PREVENTION AND TREATMENT
To prevent the signs of periorbital skin damage, physicians advocate the regular use of sunscreen and eye creams. Cosmetic formulations specifically tailored for the periorbital area may contribute to increased skin plumpness and elasticity and have been studied to be effective against eye skin aging.
