Wrinkles form on the face, neck, and chest because of the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. Factors that contribute to this breakdown include age, smoking, repetitive movements or expressions, sun exposure, poor skin care, diet, and genetics.

Often the first noticeable fine lines you’ll see will be around your eyes. These lines go by names like crow’s feet, smile lines, and under-eye wrinkles. Preventing these wrinkles from forming involves a whole host of activities including quitting smoking, minimizing repetitive expressions, wearing sunscreen all the time, using a good skincare routine , and eating healthy .

But what if you already have under-eye wrinkles? Are you stuck with them forever? Of course not. There are steps you can take return the skin around your eyes to its youthful, radiant state. This article will outline 6 of the best under-eye wrinkle treatment options.

1. Smooth Under-Eye Wrinkles With Massage

Massage is well known  to stimulate blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and boost nutrient and oxygen supply to the site being worked on. Oh, and don’t forget, it’s relaxing and rejuvenating! When most people think of a massage, they think of their back, neck, and shoulders. But the benefits can be applied to any part of the body, especially the skin around the eyes.

To make the most of an under-eye wrinkle massage, first apply a bit of coconut oil to the area so you don’t pull or drag the skin (which can actually cause more damage). Then, using your ring finger, gently rub or tap starting at the inner corner of your eye and work your way in a large circle up along your eyebrow and then down along the top of your cheekbone until you reach the inner corner of your eye again. Make 10-20 trips around one eye before switching to the other.

2. Tighten Under-Eye Wrinkles With A Natural-Ingredient Eye Mask

Under-eye wrinkles can be treated from the inside out by eating healthy and drinking enough water. They can also be treated from the outside in by applying a natural-ingredient eye mask once or twice per week.

One effective eye mask you can make at home contains egg white, milk, and honey. Egg whites are very good at making your skin look and feel tighter because they are made up of proteins and vitamins that work from the outside in to nourish and protect your skin. Among its many beneficial properties, honey is a natural humectant. This means that it attracts moisture to the surface layers of the skin making it easier for the skin to heal. Milk also contains beneficial compounds that can help heal the skin under your eyes.

Here’s how to use this natural-ingredient eye mask:

  1. Separate one egg white into a bowl.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of milk.
  3. Mix in 3 drops of honey.
  4. Apply this mixture to the skin around and underneath your eyes.
  5. Leave the mask on for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Remove the mask by washing gently with lukewarm water.

3. Treat Under-Eye Wrinkles With Eye Pads

Wearing eye pads soaked in wrinkle-fighting ingredients is a variation on the “cucumber slices on the eyes” that has become so ubiquitous in the movies and at spas these days. But instead of actual cucumber slices, it uses cotton pads that fit better and allow for better contact.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 small cucumber
  • Mint leaves
  • 30 mL rose water
  • Cotton pads

Instructions:

  1. Blend the cucumber, mint, and rose water in a blender.
  2. Pour this mixture in a bowl.
  3. Submerge the cotton pads in the mixture and let soak.
  4. Squeeze out the cotton pads a few times and then resoak to fill the pad with as much mixture as possible.
  5. Place the cotton pads in the freezer and wait for them to freeze.
  6. 10 minutes before you’re ready for the treatment, remove the pads and allow them to thaw.
  7. Apply the cotton pads to your eyes and let them sit for 20-25 minutes.

When you’re done, there’s no need to rinse or wash.

4. Fill In Under-Eye Wrinkles With Injections

Injections is a broad term for procedures such as dermal fillers and Botox™. Both involve needles, doctor visits, and significant risks when compared to other under-eye wrinkle treatment options.

Fillers smooth skin by “filling in” the space left after collagen and elastin break down. These fillers, like the water in a water balloon, provide support for the skin on top making the skin taut and smooth. Botox™ produces the same result—smooth skin—but does it in a different way. This procedure relaxes the muscle at the site of the injection, allows the skin to return to its normal position, and smoothes wrinkles and fine lines.

Though injections are often the first treatment option you think of, they should actually be the last. That’s because they are both costly, invasive, and rife with possible side effects. Injections can range in cost from hundreds to thousands of dollars. What’s more, it often takes multiple treatments before you see results. And then there’s the very real risk of side effects. Injections can cause any number of side effects including small bumps and bluish skin to nerve damage and paralysis. All of these side effects have the potential to be permanent.

5. Zap Under-Eye Wrinkles With Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing has been around for a number of years and can be a viable option for under-eye wrinkle treatment. According to Jodi Sawyer, RN writing on DoctorOz.com , “Ablative laser treatments actually vaporize damaged skin with an intense wavelength of light that reaches the skin’s epidermis.” The destruction of these damaged areas forces your body to repair itself with new, younger-looking skin. “You basically have new skin that has regenerated itself,” explains Ms. Sawyer.
