VSEach range of anti-aging skin care products has its “eye contour”, characterized by a lighter texture so that the eyelid does not swell, and by an absence of fragrance, because this area is much more sensitive than the rest of the face.
Anti-aging eye care (anti-wrinkle, firmness, etc.)
The anti-aging active ingredients found in eye contour care are the great classics that are also found in face care: retinol skilfully dosed so as not to irritate the eyes, hyaluronic acid, plant active ingredients.
“The gestures are very simple, just smooth … without pulling the skin and pulling all the skin, explains Odile Vilain, esthetician, and physiotherapist. “With one hand, maintain the tissues and with the other smooth, forgetting neither the upper eyelid nor the underside of the eye.
“If there are fine lines and wrinkles to correct, we can stimulate the tissues with very small pinches, like small pecks of a sparrow, really very light.
Make-up to bring shine
Often, when the eyelids start to wrinkle, women stop applying makeup for fear of marking the face. Carole Colombani, make-up artist Gemey Maybelline, offers a softer make-up, which brings intensity to the gaze. “I like the idea of continuing to work on her gaze with a brown pencil. Often women of a certain age no longer dare to wear makeup.
” Too bad! I suggest a pencil line flush with the eyelashes to coat them, then fade a little horizontally with a brush so as not to harden the eyes.
“And of course, always a very black mascara, loading the outer lashes and remaining very light on the lashes below the eye. “You can also use an eye shadow, in the same shade as the pencil, as long as there is room on the eyelid. ”
Beauty salon treatments: the best ideas to draw
• At Sothys, the heart of the eye-catching treatment consists of a triple massage with icy “modeling porcelains” with a decongestant effect (€ 50 for 55 min). To do at home: place metal spoons in the fridge and wipe over the eyes while applying the cream.
• At LPG, the Endermolift treatment allows micromodelages which will re-stimulate the entire area around the eyes (25 € for 15 min). Difficult to reproduce at home without the machine, you can however make small pinches to stimulate the area, but especially without pulling the skin.
• At Guinot, the principle of hydradermia consists of stimulating, by a microcurrent, the muscles of the contour of the eye to energize it (50 € for 35 min). What you can do at home: stimulate all the muscles of the face – including the eyes – by frowning and relaxing the eyebrows.Aesthetic responses
“The real sagging skin, with drooping eyelids, is late. Most often, the eyelids are wrinkled. In surgical procedures, you must not remove too much skin to keep a natural appearance ”, explains Dr Poignonec, plastic, and aesthetic surgeon. Under local and outpatient anesthesia, the surgeon removes this excess skin with a scar that becomes undetectable because it is located in the crease of the eyelid.
• For the lower eyelid, rather, it is a wrinkled appearance of the skin with fine lines and sometimes fatty pockets. The set gives a tired look to the eyes and sometimes the makeup is not enough to fade it. The lower eyelid lift can, through an incision hidden under the eyelashes, slightly tighten the skin. But for a perfect smoothing, it is necessary to combine resurfacing techniques applied to the eyelid: gentle peel, laser, radiofrequency, botulinum toxin …
“What is done in aesthetics today, to rejuvenate the look, is the reinjection of fat in the area around the eye.
” We use small diameter cannulas for ultra-fine injections, we inject the upper part of the eyelid to raise the eyebrows in a lifting effect, we fill the dark circles and if there is an excess of skin, we perform a “pinch blepharoplasty ”.
This technique consists of removing a little bit of skin, that which is retained by pinching it between the thumb and forefinger, under the lash line to be invisible. “Today, the interventions are done at a minimum, for a real youthful but natural look. ” For complete eyes, lipofilling (injection of fat) and blepharoplasty, count between 2,500 and 5,500 €.
