In an amazing study conducted by NPA inc., results showed that it is becoming more common for women to use skin care creams to make themselves look younger in hopes of appearing younger and more attractive in job interviews. But do these skin care products actually work? And if they do, does it really improve your appearance for the employer’s first impression? Let’s find out.
The use of skin care creams and cosmetic solutions has been popular amongst the fair sex, since time immemorial. And these days, there is much debate about the efficacy of using natural or chemical compound formulas for keeping away the wrinkles that trouble the skin at a certain age.
Periorbital wrinkles are a condition which is observed as one ages and the skin starts to lose its elasticity. As a result, the largest organ of the body begins to sag, and this causes wrinkles to develop, especially on the face and on other parts of the body as well. For many women, it becomes a cosmetic concern, if they feel that they are in fact, aging prematurely, which is dealt with by skin care creams and anti-aging and wrinkle solutions.
What scientific based research has to say about periorbital wrinkles and the efficacy of skin care creams, has been under debate for quite some time now. There are many causes of periorbital wrinkles in women, most of which consist of exposure to the sun, skin damage, and smoking, which might cause the skin to age prematurely, and cause the collagen in the skin to break down, giving it that sagging appearance.
The periorbital wrinkles are generally observed around the eyes, and can be both dynamic as well as static. Dynamic periorbital wrinkles mean that the sagging bags are visible under the eyes, when the skin moves. The static condition occurs when the wrinkles are easily observable, even when the facial muscles are not held in any contracted position.
Women may have dynamic periorbital wrinkles due to overactive eye muscles, while static wrinkles are due to loss of skin elasticity. There are a myriad of different skin care creams available, which profess to help resolve the problem of periorbital wrinkles, before they reach an advanced stage. The debate is whether or not these skin care creams are effective in the treatment.
Impact of Anti-Aging Skin Care Creams On Periorbital Wrinkles
Many use and others remain skeptic about the possible efficacy of skin care creams, that profess to prevent the signs of aging and wrinkles on the skin with regular use. A study was conducted to note the efficacy of different anti aging skin care creams, for the treatment of periorbital wrinkles. The results were measured by a 3D imaging source, on the periorbital area, where the first signs of skin sagging and aging are usually noted.
The study was conducted to observe the possible efficacy of the skin care cream and anti aging moisturizers, to improve the overall smoothness of the trouble areas, and have an effect on the wrinkle depth on the periorbital area. The study was a random, controlled, double blind and split face study, that was conducted on a group of research participants, women, who were between the ages of 30 to 70 years old, and were duly noted to have moderate to quite distinct periorbital wrinkles. 
The study subjects were directed to use individual products on half of their faces, twice a day, for around 4 weeks. A total of 4 test products were used during the study, which included the 2 peptides, the niacinamide, and carnosine. This included a daytime lotion with SPF 30, and an eye cream along with a night cream, along with a treatment for wrinkles which contained retinyl propionate.
The study used the FOITS technique, in order to measure any possible changes in the periorbital area, within a period of around 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. The results of the study revealed that the observations in both study 1 and study 2, showed that the skin care creams and products used during the research study, were better than opting for no treatment based on the roughness and sagging of the skin in the periorbital skin area.
The conclusion of the study was that the use of 4 skin care cream products showed a marked improvement in the overall smoothness of the periorbital skin, and also helped to reduce the visible depth of the larger periorbital wrinkles noted by the participants.
Periorbial Wrinkles And Facial Rejuvenation Through Alternate Treatments
It seems that there are other treatment methods which are also effective in the treatment of periorbital wrinkles. While skin care creams and anti aging products have been found to be quite effective in helping women aged from 30 to 70 to deal with the worrying sagging on the target periorbital region, research has indeed been done on some alternative treatment methods as well.
The wrinkles which occur as a result of photoaging are a major concern of many, and a study was conducted to observe the efficacy of the fractional radiofrequency microneedle system, as an alternative solution to skin care creams, for periorbital wrinkles. The study was conducted to ensure the clinical efficacy of the new facial rejuvenation system, and its safety as a treatment procedure.
The study included tests on 20 Korean participants, who had different degrees of wrinkles in the periorbital region. They were subjected to treatment around 3 times, with a 4 week interval. Digital images of the participants were used for the assessment of the efficacy of the treatment, and a 5 point wrinkle assessment scale was made the basis for judgment. The participants shared their satisfaction with the treatment, while there was an improvement in most patients noted after 6 months, in the photographic and clinical assessment procedures.
What Can We Conclude?
The study proved that the system is also an effective way to treat periorbital wrinkles, along with skin care creams. But the question that comes to mind is that would most people with perorbital wrinkles be willing to opt for a microneedle system treatment, or think that a combination of some good and effective skin care creams are a good solution to their wrinkles? Would a non-invasive procedure be more popular like skin care creams or would a deep dermal heating with epidermal sparing be a viable option? With skin care creams being more easily available and affordable, it is highly likely that the population would most likely stick to the effective creams which do the trick quite well.
