The skin around the eye area is the thinnest on the human body and because of that, is the first to show signs of aging, fatigue, and stress. Along with a wide range of cosmetic products to improve the appearance of eye area, there are also many beauty devices to help cases such as wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, bags, and redness.
To cite a few options, the GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool, a scientifically approved device that uses red light technology, pulse stimulation and 0.3mm micro needles to safely and painlessly micro-needle the face and enhance cellular turnover to create a firmer, smoother and healthy-looking skin. From the same company, there is the GloPRO EYE MicroTip Attachment Head, which is a smaller device. It is able to reach more delicate areas and improve its appearance, stimulating collagen and elastin production and enhancing the absorption of topical products.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s SpectraLite EyeCare Pro LED equipment comes in the shape of a glass and has 72 red and amber LEDs that stimulate collagen production. It’s at-home treatment can be done fast, in just 3 minutes a day. There is also NuFACE’s FIX Line Smoothing Device that emits low-voltage electrical currents which are like the ones naturally produced by the body. By that, an improvement of collagen and elastin production, along with skin repair properties are expected. It also reaches smaller regions, being portable and easy to use on the go.
Many more devices are available today to reveal a brighter and healthier skin.
