If aging or too much time in the Tampa sun has produced wrinkles around your eyes, then laser skin resurfacing may help to make your skin look younger and healthier. It is common for the area near the eyes to develop wrinkles sooner than other areas of your face. The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate and is exposed to a lot of activity. We make most of our facial expressions with our eyes, we squint to see in the sunlight and we often rub our eyes when tired. All this adds up to a tendency to acquire wrinkles in that area.
Reduce Wrinkles around your Eyes
There are several ways to reduce wrinkles around the eyes. The first advice is always to try to prevent the wrinkles for occurring in the first place. Wear sunglasses whenever out in the sun and always use a high SPF sunscreen. Apply moisturizer at night, do not smoke and try to avoid squinting by wearing glasses when you read. It also helps to minimize facial expressions but that is not something that practical. Once the fine lines begin to develop, it is pretty much impossible to make then go away using over the counter methods.
Once lines have formed, they will grow deeper and deeper over time. Some people resort to using Botox or injectable fillers to repair the damage caused by the harsh sun and effects of the aging process. These injectable products are very effective, at least temporarily, to make the skin around the eyes smoother and less wrinkled. Another method is laser skin resurfacing to create a new skin surface that is tighter and younger looking.
Laser Skin Resurfacing to Reduce Wrinkles
Laser skin resurfacing uses a laser to remove skin layer by layer. This allows new skin cells from the lower layers of the skin to rise to the top surface. This new skin does not have wrinkles and so looks younger and smoother once the outer layer is evaporated. The new generation of lasers also can eradicate brown spots, broken capillaries and sagging skin without surgery. However, be sure that you choose a very experienced provider with a medical degree and a great deal of knowledge on how to properly do laser resurfacing.
According to Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, there several different types of lasers on the market and not all are equally effective. Dr. Dominic prefers to use the Erbium YAG laser because he feels it is safer and more versatile than either the CO2 laser or the older fractionated lasers. The Erbium laser is very precise and can effectively treat either a small or large area of the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This laser allows for more rapid healing, less redness and a shorter duration of redness following the procedure.
Which is the Best Method to Reduce Wrinkles on Your Face?

The age of the patient, skin type, depth and severity of the wrinkles and the location of the wrinkles all play a part in determining the best method for facial rejuvenation.
