Improve Dark Under Eye Circles, Fine Lines With Scientifically-Advanced, pH-Balanced Products
By: Dr. Lawrence Samuels
Aging around the eyes is a slow, but relentless process. It is no surprise that elimination of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness around the eyes is one of the most commonly sought-after aesthetic goals.
There are many factors that cause these changes around the eyes. The most prevalent include sun damage, cigarette smoking and an unhealthy lifestyle that may include lack of sleep, significant alcohol ingestion and poor diet. It should be clear that for many patients the cause will be multi-factorial. Decreasing the appearance of bags under the eyes and dark circles requires elimination of as many precipitating factors as possible, in addition to treatments, therapies and products that can prevent and correct these problems.
The eye area has the thinnest, most delicate skin on the body and, unfortunately, is the first to show signs of aging. It is therefore imperative to use the right scientifically-advanced products in this area.
Eye creams with peptides and antioxidants, such as Rx Systems PF’s ProColl AP Line Diminishing Eye Cream, influence the function of fibroblasts to produce protein (collagen and elastin) and glycoprotein (hyaluronic acid), which are components of the extracellular matrix and can improve the under-eye appearance.
For maximum results, Rx Systems PF recommends using ProColl Ap in combination with its Reparative Eye Gel, designed to diminish the appearance crow's feet and fine lines around the eyes and enhance color and skin tone, while lifting and firming the skin in the eye area. These results are achieved by using the highest-quality ingredients that work synergistically together at the proper pH. The Reparative Eye Gel consists of 5% Glycolic Acid and Alpha Lipoic Acid in an oil-free, protein-based gel. The Glycolic Acid works to buff off dead skin cells which give the eye area that cakey, lined look and helps the skin to create more skin-cell-producing collagen to produce a lifting effect. The Glycolic Acid with a low pH, along with the protein-based gel, allow for a much deeper penetration of the ingredients, including the potent antioxidant Alpha Liopic Acid which enables them to work more effectively.
For best results, the Reparative Eye Gel should be used morning and night on cleansed skin, followed by ProColl AP Line Diminishing Eye Cream to provide further collagen and elastin production while intensely hydrating the skin in the eye area. Using both of these scientifically-advanced reparative and rejuvenating eye products in tandem ensures maximum results in the eye area.
