Why our Melanopeel® eye treatments work – It’s all about our expert understanding of the skin and how to get the best and safest dose of active ingredient where it’s needed to make a difference. Let’s talk anatomy, ingredients, and delivery systems, and options to get firmer skin around the eyes.

The skin under the eyes is the thinnest in your body. This means that both your epidermis and dermis are thin, with less supporting collagen, and less epidermal protection.

Couple that with the fact that there are no moisturizing oil glands in this area…

To make things even worse, the area around the eyes are a facial orifice (opening), meaning that there are a lot of muscles for opening and closing the eyes. Then let’s add to this – your eyes are a sensual organs of facial expression with a lot of daily use, which makes the area even more susceptible to deeper lines.

This translates into an area prone to sun damage, puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles, skin laxity, fragile blood vessels, and pigmentation. Once you notice signs of eye aging, can this be reversed? The answer is yes. It it possible to improve the eye area with out eye firming treatments.

Correction of wrinkles and loose skin around the eyes needs:

  1. Hydration
  2. Collagen stimulation & skin tightening
  3. Muscle relaxation
  4. Strengthening of capillaries while stimulating blood flow for nutrients
  5. Reduced puffiness
  6. Skin lightening for superficial pigmentation

Now let’s see what you can do to improve and firm your eye area:

  • Use peptides for dark circles, puffiness, and reducing facial muscle activity like:
    • Argireline – Acetyl hexapeptide-8, a Botox-like peptide for wrinkle reduction.
    • Matrixyl – Palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, a wrinkle-reversing peptide.
    • Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 for firmer skin.
  • Retinols of high potency and proper skin delivery to boost collagen and reduce lines.
  • Home microneedling treatments done weekly to stimulate collagen and boost capillaries and nutrition.
  • Mandelic acid to resurface the skin, improve skin texture, and reduce pigmentation.
  • Vitamin C for skin brightening, antioxidant protection, and strengthen capillaries.
  • Kojic acid, arbutin, & hydroquinone for reducing pigmentation around the eyes.
  • Use other supporting goodies like antioxidants, hydrators, DMAE, and CoQ10. You can find these in our Deep Dermal Peptide Repair.

Formulation is everything:

What you now need to know is that formulation of your ingredients and delivery systems are key to ensuring good efficacy of your products. Did you ever wonder why some creams are so cheap and others so expensive? Part of this has to do with how well the products are formulated.

Are the ingredients encapsulated, how potent is the actual ingredient, is there sustained release, what is the product’s pH, is the active ingredient attached to a carrier safe and compatible with the skin to help penetration? These are just some of the considerations. And we do mean some.

What other ingredients are in your creams that you don’t need? Many skincare creams contain parabens and phthalates which are not contained in our Melanopeel® products. With the skin under your eyes being so thin, we need to ensure that only the right ingredients are in your eye creams and serums.
