Introducing ZO Skin Health Growth Factor Eye Serum

Whether it’s wrinkles, hollowness, discolouration or puffiness, the skin around the eyes shows signs of ageing before any other part of the body. There is a common misconception that the products you use on the rest of the face will work just fine on the delicate eye area too. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The skin around the eyes is fragile and especially vulnerable to external aggressors like UV exposure and pollution. To repair damage and slow down the ageing process, you need a powerful, targetted treatment.

What makes the eyes more vulnerable to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors of ageing?

  • The skin is very thin and has a sparse fat layer – because of that, collagen and elastin (the proteins that give skin strength and firmness) are more prone to degradation caused by sun and pollution exposure.

  • Muscular subsidence and microcirculation decline – the muscles that squeeze the eyelids shut decrease in strength with age and that leads to sagging and deep creases.

  • Anatomical peculiarity – the skin around the eyes covers the hollow space of the eye socket. As we age, the bony orbit of the eye changes in structure; the skin caves in, giving the eyes a sunken and darkened appearance.

The Solution

Powered by ZO Skin Health innovative skin restoration technology, Growth Factor Eye Serum targets the appearance of deep eye wrinkles, crease formation, hollowness and microcirculation decline.

The formula combines enzymatic and plant-derived growth factors that invigorate skin’s natural restorative mechanisms and deliver targetted treatment for the eye’s unique vulnerabilities.

Key Ingredients:

Neuropeptide – improves the appearance of expression lines and smooths out wrinkles.

Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate – provides an instant boost in hydration and plumpness.

Growth factors – stimulate the production of type 1 collagen, increase fibroblast division and enhance skin density.

ZPRO antioxidant complex – increases hyaluronan contents in the skin which, in return, boosts collagen and hyaluronic acid production.

Growth Factor Eye Serum is suitable for all skin types and can be added to your skincare regime morning or evening as a targeted eye treatment.

The formula offers a unique blend of fast-acting and long-term correction ingredients; neuropeptides and sodium hyaluronate provide instant hydration boost and smooth out fine lines, while growth factors and antioxidants work within the deep layers of the skin to improve density and stimulate collagen production. It comes with a cooling applicator that makes it easy to apply just the right amount of product and can be used to alleviate swelling and puffiness.

Growth Factor Eye Serum is available to purchase form your nearest ZO clinic.

Treating Tired Eyes and Dark Circles

The skin around your eyes is the most delicate and thinnest part of your face which is why it is often one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. Crows feet, crepey skin, puffiness and dark circles can all appear for a number of reasons. Find out what they are below and how you can help improve them.

Dark circles under the eyes are can be caused by several factors:

  • genetics play a large factor
  • the intensity of the dark circles can be more prominent on fair and thin skin.
  • increased pigmentation from sun damage can result in dark under eyes
  • thinning skin and volume loss due to ageing can reveal blue and purple veins, or make the under eye area appear more hollow, and create a shadow.

Whilst puffiness under the eyes can be caused by:

  • fatigue
  • fluid retention
  • excess salt in your diet
  • seasonal allergies
  • and again genetics

How to Treat Dark Circles and Puffiness

An eye cream that contains caffeine can help reduce puffiness as it can tighten the skin as well as also help with drainage of fluid retention. The ZO Medical Hydrafirm Eye Brightening Repair Crème contains caffeine to promote microcirculation and reduce puffiness in under eyes. 

To treat dark circles, eye creams with skin lightening active ingredients such as vitamin A can help to treat pigmentation in the area. Vitamin A is also a collagen-boosting ingredient. This mean it can help to thicken the skin around the eyes, and add volume, helping to reduce the appearance of hollowness and veins. Hydrafirm contains retinol (vitamin A) to stimulate collagen and help lighten the appearance of dark under eyes. What’s more, retinol is a fantastic anti-wrinkle ingredient. It can can smooth out fine lines and crows feet to help make your eyes appear more youthful and awake.

The powerful combination of ingredients in Hydrafirm work together to rapidly improve the skin around your eyes. Use only a pea size amount for the entire under eye area in the morning and evening – and blend in gently with fingertips. This product absorbs quickly and can be used year round.

To help avoid further damage to the eyes, be gentle with your eyes. Never pull, tug or rub the skin as it is so delicate. And of course always wear sun protection!
