I really don’t mind some lines when I smile, but lately I have noticed more and more fine lines appearing under my eyes.
I have botox around my eyes once a year and this has more or less eradicated my crows feet, but not the lines under my eyes.
Collagen comprises 70% of the dry skin mass. It strengthens your skin and benefits its elasticity and hydration.
As you age, your body starts producing less collagen. As a rsult, the skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic and ultimately, leads to wrinkles.
Gouri is a liquid-type injectable which is specifically injected into layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. It stimulates your skin cells to create your own Type-I collagen, which is the most abundant collagen in the human body, and helps to preserve the collagen levels in your skin, hair and nails.
Once it has kick-started your collagen production, Gouri is broken down into carbon dioxide and water and passes out of your body naturally, this is important for me as I don’t personally like the look of permanent fillers.
I wanted this treatment specifically to strengthen the skin under my eyes and soften the wrinkles.
The upside is there are only two injections and it’s quick; I was in and out in 30 minutes. The injection points at the side under your eyes are uncomfortable and you are left with two small areas of swelling which reduced within 48 hours.
It can take up to a month to see the results and you will need a follow-up treatment depending on the severity of the lines. The effect can last up to 9 months.
I combined my treatment with Profhilo which adds moisture and a glow to my skin.
These treatments work, and in my opinion, it is far better to save up and have them, rather than endlessly wasting money on expensive eye creams which will ultimately make little difference.
It is so tempting to believe all the social media posts about this cream or that cream but we all know it is just marketing. Resist the temptation of a lower price point which makes it so easy to just buy the eye cream, you really are better to wait, save and have Gouri. This will kick start your own collagen production and give you a natural rested look. It’s not dramatic, but enough to make a difference to what you see in the mirror…
Just to clarify, these are not miracle cures, but they will definitely help to soften your lines.
As you are dealing with the delicate under-eye, please make sure you use an experienced practitioner, I only trust Dr. Surbhi with treatments such as this.
