The eyelids are one of the most common places for skin cancer and the first place we see the signs of aging. Skin cancer in this area is especially dangerous and hard to detect. Luckily, there are products that can protect the delicate skin around the eye.

The Concerns

The eyelids are very susceptible to skin cancer and the aging effects of UV exposure. About 10% of skin cancers occur on the eyelids, which is kind of shocking when you consider that the face/head accounts for less than 5% of the total body surface area. There are many additional concerning factors regarding skin cancers on the eyelid. There is a significant risk for tissue damage to nearby vital ocular structures and even blindness. Tumors in this area can also spread into the nasal and orbital cavities (the area behind the eye). Let not forget that the skin of the eyelid serves to protect the eye and when that skin has to be removed we are presented with a host of issues such as preventing infection and reconstruction of the eyelid is very difficult. Early detection can be challenging because these tumors tend to grow inward toward the deeper layers of the skin and bone, before they are seen on surface of the skin. The appearance of this type of cancer varies and looks different than other types of skin cancers, making detection even more difficult. Reoccurrence of skin cancer on the eyelid is among the highest. It is important to take measures to prevent skin cancer, and become an established patient of a good dermatologist before you think you need one.

As if cancer was not enough, photo-aging of the eyelid is another concern. Photo-aging is a term used to describe sun damage and premature aging caused by UV exposure. Consider that the skin is a direct reflection of health and that sun damaged skin is not healthy skin. Photo-aging goes beyond vanity, it really is about skin that is not functioning properly or at a healthy state.Sun damaged skin will have lowered immunity against infection and impaired wound healing ability. Furthermore, UV rays age skin cells, damage DNA, break down collagen, elastin and damage pigment producing melanocytes. All of this equals unhealthy skin that is thin, lax (loose), with lines wrinkles and skin discoloration. There are products and treatments that can be done to improve these issues, but it will take time, money, and a little work.

Prevent the damage and reduce risk of cancer

The first line of defense is a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or more. The eyes and the skin around the eyes are sensitive to chemicals in sunscreen so you should look for a physical sunscreen, meaning the only two active ingredients are Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide. I like Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50 by Skin Ceuticals, it is a non-migrating, high protection sunscreen designed specifically for the upper and lower eyelids. This is a pure physical sunscreen that you apply like and eye cream. The formula is tinted to enhance tone, however it will nor provide coverage like a cosmetic. I like to say it’s tinted for a man. It blends right in and doesn’t settle into fine lines or make your eye area appear dry/cakey. the ceramics in it will nourish the skin, but I still recommend using your usual eye cream first then SPF.

For additional protection I recommend using a topical product with vitamin-C, every morning. While sunscreens absorb or reflect out UV radiation, antioxidants such as vitamin-C neutralize the UV rays. Photoprotective topical antioxidants work by the inhibiting the UV-induced biochemical changes that lead to photoageing and DNA mutations.

Studies show that sunglasses do help protect eyes from UV damage, however some UV light can still get to the eye area, depending on the type and style of sunglasses. Look for sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection and remember that sunglasses do not eliminate the need for sunscreen.

The eyes are the focal pointe of the face and one of the first places we start to age. A professional chemical peel to treat the skin around the eyes, may be just what the doctor ordered.
A Medium Depth Peel will..
– Treat skin laxity, fine lines, “stretchable” wrinkles and scars.
– Improve skin texture, reducing roughness
– Treat hyper-pigmentation Brown spots and Melasma
– Tighten large pores
– Increase collagen and skin density

The skin around the eyes is thin and with age begins to show fine lines and take on a crepey texture. Treating the delicate skin around the eye can be tricky. Lasers can damage the eye, so this limits how we treat this area. Laser resurfacing can be done, if special laser eye shields are placed inside the eye. Chemical peels are another option for treating the skin around the eye, and when done by a skilled professional can be done up to the lash line.

Chemical peels that penetrate to the appropriate depth in the skin, can improve texture and tighten skin. A TCA peel that penetrates beyond the papillary dermis, just to the Immediate Reticular Dermis (IRD) will provide skin tightening effect, this is called a Medium Depth Peel. I am choosing not to mention the strength of TCA used, because I read too many horror stories online about people who attempted to do a professional peel at home. Skin care professionals are trained on how to determine where we are working in the skin, this is a medical grade peel and should be done by an experienced professional.

Aging Skin and Chemical Peel Intervention

Skin care professionals often talk about “skin cell turn over”. Skin cell turnover is the process of a new skin cell being produced, working it’s way up to the surface and replacing old skin cells which have been sloughed away. In young healthy skin this process takes about 6 weeks, however aging and sun damage slow this process. Chemical peels increase skin cell turnover, which in turn improves skin texture.

The production of growth factors, collagen, elastin and hylaraunic acid all slow with age, so the goal in anti-aging is to preserve and increase the production all of these things. Collagen is a protein that gives skin it’s volume strength and structure, while elastin is what gives skin it’s elasticity or ability to snap back. Hyaluronic acid is a key molecule involved in skin moisture, as it binds and retains water. Hyaluronic acid is also needed to bind collagen to elastin. When we do chemical peels and laser treatments that penetrate beyond the skins epidermis, we are benefitting from the skins own wound healing ability to up regulate growth factors and stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyluranic acid. The result is a thicker dermis, smoother surface and skin tightening.

What to expect

The day of the peel is considered day 1. On days 1 and 2 your skin looks okay, but it may look dry and slightly older. By day 3 skin begins to look dark or bronze, this will vary depending on your natural skin color, skin discolorations and depth of peel. Skin usually begins to peel on day 4 and is usually done by day 5. After the skin has peeled of it may be pink for a couple days. The healing process does vary for each person. Healthy skin will always recover more quickly with less inflammation.

During the peeling process you will need to follow the post peel instructions given to you by your skin care professional. This usually includes using a gentle cleanser, a hydrocortisone cream and mild moisturizer. An occlusive ointment such as Vasoline or Aquaphor may be recommended. It is VERY important to not pick or pull off the skin, let it peel in its own time! (seriously… don’t do it) You should also avoid sweating during the pealing phase, because it will create sweat beads under the skin that will cause it to peel of prematurely and thats bad. The skin should be protected with a totally physical sunscreen, I like Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50 by Skin Ceuticals.

After the old skin has peeled off, it instantly looks and feels smother. The collagen production will continue to increase and the skin will continue to feel tighter. To keep the skin renewal process un regulated and functioning more similar to young skin, I usually recommend having around 4 TCA chemical peels around the eye area per year. Treatments should be scheduled over 6 weeks apart.

Everybody wants an amazing eye cream, my self included (I am practically obsessed). The eyes are a focal point on our face, they are also the first place we start to show aging. We are all hoping for a miracle in a jar, unfortunately we may be setting our expectations too high.

An eye cream can do a lot for you, but there are somethings it can not do. An eye cream can add moisture, improve and strengthen the delicate skin under the eyes. An eye cream can treat dark circles with skin brighteners or ingredients that strengthen the blood vessels under the eyes. An eye cream can address puffiness by reducing swelling and inflammation. An eye cream can reduce or slow the effects of aging with Retinols/ AHA’s, Growth factors and antioxidants. When choosing an eye cream look at the ingredients (do they address your concerns). An eye cream can not add volume to a hollow under eye, remove fat pads that cause under eye bags, remove excess skin, lift a hooded brow or relax the muscles around the eyes that cause crows feet.
There comes a point when an aesthetic procedure may be needed to address your concerns.

Everyone needs an eye cream and there are plenty of great eye creams available. Finding an eye cream you love is largely based on personal preference, but a skin professional can point you in the right direction. Skin professionals hold the skin care products to a higher standard and tend to look for products with powerful ingredients or with a high concentration of key ingredients. Keep your expectations toward your eye cream realistic and when the time comes, except the hard truth that you may be ready for an aesthetic procedure.

Specific Concerns

Puffiness

If your main concern is puffiness under your eyes, We suggest:
Eye Repair Complex by Nia 24
Youth Eye Complex by IS Clinical
AGE Eye Complex by Skin Ceuticals
Neocutis Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream

Dark Circles

If your main concern is dark circles, We would suggest Eye Repair Complex by Nia 24. Other eye creams that address this issue are:
TNS Eye Repair by Skin Medica
Youth Eye Complex by IS Clinical
AGE Eye Complex by Skin Ceuticals
Neocutis Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream

Moisturizing

If you are most concerned with moisturizing We suggest Renewal Eye Cream by Epionce, TNS Eye Repair by Skin Medica or Eye Repair Complex by Nia 24. Most eye creams are moisturizing on some level however some products such as Obagi Elastiderm are not moisturizing at all.

Tightening

If you are concerned with tightening the lax skin under your eyes I suggest Elastiderm by Obagi.

Our choice for “over all ” eye cream would probably have to be Youth Eye Complex by IS Clinical. We also like TNS Eye Repair by Skin Medica. Other great choices are Eye Repair Complex by Nia 24 and Neocutis Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream.

Tip: We like the Clarisonic Opal or JeNu Ultrasound device to enhance the penetration of eye creams. Learn more about Jenu.

The eyelids are one of the most common places for skin cancer and the first place we see the signs of aging. Skin cancer in this area is especially dangerous and hard to detect.Luckily, there are products that can protect the delicate skin around the eye.

The Clarisonic cleansing brush has been a long time favorite among skin care profesionals, so it is no surprise that the Clarisonic Opal is a new favorite. The Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System helps you get the most out of your skin care products and improve the skin around your eyes.

A palm-sized sonic infusion device, the Opal is specially designed to help build skin’s resilience over time and prevent future damage around the eyes. By gently tapping the skin around your eye at 125 sonic movements per second, the Opal dispenses a specially formulated Anti-Aging Sea Serum, maximizing absorption in a way that’s not possible with your finger alone.

A blue dye was added to the eye serum to show the enhanced absorption with the Clarisonic Opal.

For me the biggest selling point is that your products will penetrate better when you use them with the Opal, and when you invest in the best skin care products you want to get all you can from them. The Opal Sonic comes with an Anti-Aging Sea Serum, but I also use it with other serums. I find it also works well with Skin Ceutical’s Hydrating B5 Gel and Obagi Elastiderm Eye Treatment Gel. I think I will also like try it with Skin Medica’s TNS Recovery Complex. I don’t limit my Opal use to around the eyes, I find it works great on the lip line too.

The delicate thin skin around the eyes is the first place that skin starts to age. Even the hair on our eyebrows and eyelashes reduce and become lighter over time, and if that isn’t enough many women find it difficult to apply eye makeup because vision can become worse with age.

Crows Feet and Lines Between Eyebrows

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).
Botox will temporarily relax the muscles that create the lines around eyes known as crow’s feet. Botox is also used to treat the lines between the eyebrows, often refereed to as the elevens (11).

Eyes, Botox

Fine lines and Crepey Skin

Laser and chemical peels can be done to resurface the skin around the eyes and stimulate the fibroblast to produce collagen. Some laser treatments can be done around the eyes, as long as ocular shields are used to protect the eyes, however some patients are not comfortable with having the metal ocular shield placed inside their eyes. I personally prefer to do a chemical peel using a 30% – 35% TCA. I prefer the TCA because I am able to peel all the way to the lash line, I also feel that I am able to produce a better result with the TCA peel.

If you are considering a TCA peel, be sure to go to someone with a lot of experience, especially if you have dark skin. It may be recommended that you precondition the skin with Tretinoin ( Retin-A) and Hydroquinone, before the peel. It takes about 7 – 9 days for the skin to complete the peeling phase, however this is dependent on the depth of the peel. In general you can expect the skin to start to darken up on the third day, you may see some peeling as soon as the fourth or fifth day. It is extremely important that you don’t “assist” the peel, treat the skin almost like you are trying to keep it on. Picking and peeling the skin off prematurely can lead to complication. Follow all post treatment instructions, which usually includes using a moisturizing product like Obagi’s Action.

Bags under the eyes

A plastic surgeon can easily remove fat pads from under the eyes. A Blephaplasty removes excess skin and fat. A transconjunctival blepharoplasty, is a procedure where the fat is removed from the lower eyelid, by making the incisions from the inside of the eyelid. The advantage is that there isn’t any visible scars, however it doesn’t remove excess skin from the lower lid. A plastic surgeon can also reposition fat, and reinforce muscles and tendons around the eyes. The surgeon may recommend a canthoplasty to reinforce lower eyelid support. In some cases a blephaplasty can be performed in the office with little to no down time. You should schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon to see what procedure is best for you.

Hollow under the eyes, or sunken in look

You can have filler injected under the eyes to fill on the hollow area under the eyes. This is an advanced technique and should be performed be an injector that is very experienced at injecting fillers around the eyes.

Photograph from Shapiro Plastic Surgery


This patient has been bothered by the hollowing beneath her eyes that make her appear fatigued. The photograph shows the patient after injection of Restylane® to the right lower eyelid region, and before injection to the left side to simulate a before and after view. She was delighted with her immediate improvement at the end of the injection session. Photo courtesy of Shapiro Plastic Surgery.

Droopy Brow

The browlift is a procedure designed to elevate the brow to a more youthful position relative to the eyelids.
The endoscopic browlift is a minimally invasive procedure, which means there is very little bruising or swelling from the procedure. The procedure involves inconspicuous incisions made throughout the scalp, hidden in the hair meaning that the thin, few scars that are left behind, are hardly noticeable by even the patient themselves. The recovery time is very quick; surgical sutures are removed within ten days, after which most patients can comfortably socialize without pain. This is a very common procedure performed by, Paradise Valley Plastic Surgeon, Dr Daniel Shapiro. An open (coronal) browlift is a specialized procedure for patients with deep wrinkles or heavier skin. Deep wrinkles in the mid-forehead and between the eyebrows can be lifted out by using an open browlift technique. Both techniques are common procedures performed by, Paradise Valley Plastic Surgeon, Dr Daniel Shapiro.

Skin Tightening

ReFirm and Thermage are skin tightening treatments that use Radio Frequency (RF) technology to gently tighten the skin. These treatments do not require any down time, however you may need a series of treatments for best results. I find that these treatments work best when combined with other treatments.

[ Radio frequency (RF) 101: Understanding (RF) Skin Treatments ]

Permanent Makeup

Permanent cosmetic makeup is cosmetic tattooing elevated to the highest artistic level. Permanent make up can help give you back what time has taken away, and help to enhance your natural look. Permanent make up is not necessarily intended to replace cosmetics completely, because the color is placed “in” the skin and not on the skin, so a more natural, softer look results after the skin has healed. Permanent make up makes it possible to look better round the clock and be less self conscious. When you look better you feel better! It is a great time saver, perfect for active outdoor lifestyles, sensitive skin, and clients with contacts, glasses or difficulty applying make up.

Latisse

You may notice that your lashes and brows are not as full as they were when you were younger.Latisse is the first and only FDA approved prescription treatment for eyelash growth. It is an easy to use topical solution that you apply once a day at the base of your eyelashes. Lashes gradually start to get longer, thicker and darker. You will notice results in as little as 8 weeks, and full results in as little as 16 weeks. Keep in mind that hair growth can develop in other areas that the solution is applied to. I personally have used Latisse on my eyebrows and have seen an improvement.

Eyelash and Brow Tinting

To enhance the look of your eyes, you can have your eyelashes and eyebrows tinted. The treatment is quick, painless and inexpensive. The results are temporary, and last about 4 weeks. Eyelash and eyebrow tinting is also great for men, because they generally don’t wear makeup.
