Non-surgical treatments can widen your eyes and make you look more awake and refreshed. Discover how you can achieve a more youthful and rested appearance.
Our eyes allow us to remain expressive and connected to those around us. With all that focused attention, under-eye hollows, droopy eyelids, dark circles, bags, and wrinkles around the eyes are a common concern. Aging, sun exposure, quality of sleep and genetics are some of the factors that can aggravate the look of skin around the eyes.
Because the skin is especially thin and more sensitive in this area, this is a challenge that needs to be assessed carefully with an individualized approach. Dr. Rohan Bissoondath has expertise in cosmetic eye common concerns. As our medical director and President of the Canadian Association of Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Rohan brings the skill and experience you can trust. Preventous Cosmetic Skincare Centre in Calgary offers the most effective and innovative treatments to help improve the tone, texture and volume of the eye area. Book a consult today and see how you can attain a more youthful look.
Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
As we age, muscle contractions can change due to the lack of structure, volume loss and shifting facial bones. This can result in undesired changes to proportions and angles. You may notice how temporary expression lines gradually become wrinkles. Fortunately, our Calgary Skin Clinics offers innovative treatments to address these effects. Prevent and treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes with Neuromodulators, dermal fillers and medical-grade skincare. Revitalize your eyes with collagen-stimulating treatments like Morpheus8, Thermage and Ultherapy.
Dark circle under the eyes
A number of factors can contribute to the appearance of dark circles: including:
- excessive strain on your eyes
- sun exposure
- and genetics.
Our Calgary Clinics offer a variety of treatments to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Effective and permanent solutions include laser therapy and dermal fillers. Chemical peels help to lighten hyperpigmentation under the eyes. Medical-grade skincare products include effective ingredients like Vitamin C that are proven to lighten dark areas under the eyes. Injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or hyaluronic acid gel via microneedling can help improve skin tone, texture, and loss of volume around the eyes.
Aging can result in loss of fatty tissue, cause facial bone retraction, and cause thinning of skin around the eyes. These changes can make under-eye-hollows appear more defined in older adults. Dermal fillers can help by replacing loss volume and restore shape and balance. Discover how Preventous’ Skincare clinics can rejuvenation the appearance of your eyes.
Eye bags or puffiness
Under the eye area, there is a foundation made of bones, muscles, fat pads, ligaments, lymphatics, nerves and blood vessels that hold everything in place, and those don’t age in a synchronous way. These changes allow fat to shift forward into the lower eyelids and tissues around the eye gradually weaken and sag, making the under-eye area look puffy. Non-surgical solutions are available to help tighten the skin in this area including Morpheus8, Ultherapy and Thermage. Effective skin treatments can reduce under-eye puffiness including laser resurfacing, chemical peels and fillers.

Preventous offers expertise to help choose the best eye creams and serums featuring these important ingredients:
- Hyaluronic acid – hydrates and plumps up skin, giving you a youthful and radiant glow
- Vitamin C – reduce oxidative stress
- Retinol – improves collagen deficiency and helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles by promoting cell turnover
- Peptides – stimulate collagen production
- Stem cells – have the potential to repair skin cells

The Power Of Makeup For Instant Results
If you feel good, you look good. Don’t underestimate the power of makeup to conceal dark circles under the eye. If treatment is not an option, you may want to use an under-eye concealer and mineral foundation to cover and brighten the area.
Preventous recommends the Jane Iredale Enlighten Plus Under-Eye Concealer featuring a full-coverage anti-aging formula with SPF. If you are looking for extra sun protection built specifically for the under-eye area, products such as Skinceuticals Physical Eye UV Defense can protect and nourish sensitive skin.
As part of your skincare regimen, don’t forget to remove your makeup before bed. Your skin is exposed to free radicals if you sleep in makeup which has the potential to create oxidative stress and prematurely age your skin. Ensure proper removal as part of your end-of-day routine.
Facials like the Hydrafacial can be used under the eyes to lighten pigmented spots, reduce puffiness and improve the appearance of fine lines. For maximum glow and radiance, serums can be added to target dark circles, and a red LED light treatment can add a finishing touch. Our facials are performed using 100% medical-grade products approved by the FDA and Health Canada and feature active ingredients scientifically proven to deliver optimal results.
