Eye wrinkles are one of the most common issues people face, and they are now appearing at increasingly younger ages. Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery Specialist Op. Dr. Ufuk Askeroğlu explains the reasons behind eyebrow and eye wrinkles observed at an early age.
The Effects of Constant Phone Use and Stress
Among young people, continuous phone conversations, television and computer use, along with concerns about exams and studies, can increase stress levels. All these external factors may contribute to the formation of under-eye wrinkles at an early age. Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery Specialist Op. Dr. Ufuk Askeroğlu explains the causes of eyebrow and eye wrinkles that appear at an early age.
Wrinkles Can Occur in Both Men and Women
According to Askeroğlu, “Under-eye and eyebrow wrinkles are known to increase with age. Although they usually appear with age, they can also occur at a younger age due to factors such as poor nutrition, wrinkle-prone skin type, and genetic predisposition. Sometimes, even with age, they may become less common due to genetic features and other factors.
Under-eye and eyebrow wrinkles can occur in both men and women. In general, women are more susceptible to this condition due to the decline in hormones that occur with age.
As the skin under the eyes becomes thinner and collagen decreases, some symptoms may appear before wrinkles, or wrinkles may increase without becoming more noticeable with age. These symptoms can be prevented or slowed down with the measures taken and interventions applied.
Fight Wrinkles with Vitamin C
Various causes can lead to wrinkles and even sagging on the face, hands, and under the eyes. Irregular and unhealthy eating habits, irregular sleep, stress, sadness, fatigue, living conditions, environment, and personal habits can contribute to the formation of under-eye wrinkles at an early age. Therefore, special attention should be given to nutrition and sleep.
Fruits like apples and pears, which can beautify the skin, as well as vitamin C-rich foods, should be preferred. Additionally, drinking water is essential. A person should drink at least one and a half to two liters of water per day. Drinking water can make your skin brighter and cleaner, and your body healthier.
To prevent or slow down the formation of under-eye wrinkles at an early age, consider the following measures:
- Make an effort to consume plenty of fluids (at least 1.5-2 liters of water, fruit juices).
- Staying in the sun for hours can cause skin irritation. Therefore, especially in hot weather, care should be taken to avoid staying in the sun.
- Make sure to get enough vitamins for your body.
- Reduce alcohol and cigarette consumption.
- Be careful not to consume excessive amounts of tea, coffee, and caffeinated beverages.
Professional Treatments and Procedures
If under-eye wrinkles at an early age cannot be prevented or slowed down, you can resort to professional treatments and procedures recommended by aesthetic and plastic surgery specialists. These treatments and procedures include:
- Botox injections
- Dermal fillers
- Laser treatments
- Chemical peels
- Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion
- Radiofrequency applications

Taking preventive measures and undergoing professional treatments for eyebrow and eye wrinkles at an early age can help improve a person’s quality of life, leading to a healthier and more youthful appearance. Remember, lifestyle changes and regular care are just as important as the preventive measures that can be considered for slowing down and preventing under-eye wrinkles at an early age. By doing so, you will be taking the necessary steps for healthy and youthful skin.
