The eyes are the main focus of the face. That is why there are so many treatments targeted around the eyes – successfully rejuvenating the eyes can immediately takes years off a person. However, at the same time, the eyes are amongst the most difficult areas to treat. The skin is thin, making it very unforgiving to many traditional eye treatments. Wrinkles and lines are very prominent and difficult to erase in this region too, so it’s best that you get it treated sooner than later! But treat them too little, and the results will be unsatisfactory. Treat them too much, and your eyes may end up looking unnatural.

We had a chat with Dr Siew Tuck Wah, aesthetic physician and medical director of Radium Medical Aesthetics, to gain advice on the best non-invasive treatment available in Singapore, that can help you banish tired and puffy eyes from your appearance.

Why do I have tired looking eyes although I get enough sleep daily?

Many women suffer from fatigued and tired looking eyes despite their age and getting proper rest. This is mainly due to facing the computer screen for long periods of time, which no doubt strains the eyes. Other factors that could be the cause of your peepers feeling stressed is poor lighting when working, adding to the strain.

Although simple eye exercises or natural remedies like placing cucumber peels on your jewels can help relieve computer-related eye strain for a while, it’s not a permanent go-to solution. You should certainly consider undergoing an eye treatment that can renew the skin around your eyes - making you look fresher in the long run.

What's this miracle treatment that can help me brighten my tired, puffy eyes?

Dr Siew advises that you go for the latest eye-lift treatment offered by Radium Medical Aesthetics, if you wish to reduce puffiness and stimulate collagen production for brighter, more lifted eyes. This treatment is the latest radiofrequency microneedling treatment that uses an intelligent, real-time feedback system to deliver each shot with precision for the best outcome. It works by creating controlled micro-puncture wounds on the skin’s surface, which acts as channels to deliver fractional Radio Frequency (RF) heat into the skin using 49 microscopic needles.

The dual action of creating micro-puncture wounds and delivering precise RF energy into the dermis stimulates the skin’s collagen and elastin production, inducing your body to kick-start the natural healing process for firmer, tighter, and younger-looking skin.

Although this may sound scary in treating the under area of your eyes, Dr Siew assures us that this procedure is a gentle treatment that will leave you with long-lasting results.

This procedure also has minimum downtime, although you may experience slight side effects like redness and swelling immediately after the treatment. The soreness should resolve on its own in a few days, but it’s important to stay out of the sun and apply sunscreen as well as moisturiser regularly to protect the skin once you’ve completed the session.

What are the main benefits of this eye-lift treatment for my eyes?

Besides leaving your eyes looking brighter and more refreshed, this eye-lift treatment can also help treat your eyes in many other ways. Here are some of the added benefits you will reap from this recommended treatment:

  • Improvement of overall skin texture and quality of the under-eye area
  • Enhanced production of skin collagen to tighten sagging and puffy skin under your eyes
  • Non-surgical skin lifting procedure

Dr Siew also explains to us that the best results may be seen after a few sessions, depending on the severity of your under-eye area. “You should be able to see visible, effective results even after one session, but I usually advise my clients to wait between 3 to 4 weeks after their first session before deciding if they’d like to undergo another sitting, as collagen and elastin take time to develop” says Dr Siew.

If you’re keen on trying out this procedure, we recommend you meet with Dr Siew to gage the condition of your under-eye area and discuss the options available to you. Who knows? He may recommend another treatment or a combination of treatments more suitable for you depending on the outcome you want to achieve.
