One example of professional ways to begin fighting back the signs of aging is through Botox injections. This eye wrinkle treatment is an effective way of diminishing the lines around the eyes. Botox injections are a relatively simple procedure. It involves the injection of small amounts of Botox under the skin. In fact, this is a toxin that paralysis the muscles and cause them to relax, which in the end will smooth out the wrinkles. Botox injection does need to be repeated as the results diminish over the time.
Another eye wrinkle treatment that may be an effective method for you is a chemical peel. There are several chemicals that can be used in this procedure, such as alpha hydroxy and tricloroacetic acid. A light peel can be completed as short as in fifteen minutes, but the deeper the peel the longer it needs for the chemicals to absorb through the layers of skin. After the chemical is removed, the skin will peel off. Again depending on the depth of the peel, the skin typically may react to the chemical peel by becoming very red or possibly loose some of its color.
