Eye Wrinkles Treatment
Some lines enhance the natural beauty of your face, but others aren’t so complementary.
Keeping you smiling
Even people in their 20s who use eye wrinkle cream and take good care of their skin can feel unhappy about creases under their eyes, and when makeup settles in them they can appear really ageing.
And at some point everyone will notice wrinkles in the outside corners of their eyes, known as crow’s feet, and other fine lines, creases and ridges around the eyes. These are all a natural part of ageing, caused by the body’s increasing inability to replace collagen and elastin proteins, which are essential for vibrant and elastic skin.
Other lifestyle factors such as smoking and sun damage accelerate the formation of wrinkles, and facial expressions when you laugh, squint or smile play a role too.
Don’t worry though, we don’t want you to stop smiling!
We believe it’s our job to help people who want to soften or eradicate their eye wrinkles to target only the unattractive ones, while enhancing their natural features. In other words, some lines are endearing and enhance the natural beauty of your face, and other lines are not complementary – they are the ones we try to soften or take away.

Botulinum Toxin Type A, often known as Botox, has been used by doctors for 20 years to treat facial tics and muscle spasms and offers a quick, almost painless solution to eye lines. It is administered by a tiny injection that stops your nerves from sending messages to activate the facial muscles responsible for eye wrinkles.
The key is to distinguish between wrinkles as a result of movement (smiling, for instance) versus wrinkles that are still there when your face is at rest.
Botulinum Toxin Type A helps with wrinkles that appear as a result of movement; when used correctly it can widen the eye, relax the wrinkles and give a well-rested look. Botox is a prescription only medicine and can only be used where it is deemed appropriate by a health professional following a consultation for lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, made from hyaluronic acid – a natural substance found in the body that attracts water to the skin and plumps it up – can be injected to correct hollowing around the eyes. Muscle relaxant injections and dermal fillers both last between three and six months and many patients attend regular treatments to maintain the results.
To get the best results you need to be examined by an expert and have the right doses of the right material chosen and injected correctly, which dentists are perfectly skilled to do:
they train in injections from the beginning of their careers and they have a deep understanding of the dynamics of the face, which is their exclusive field of expertise.
