Good, Better, Best: Products and Treatments to Care for Your Eyes

Updated: Mar 28

Dark circles, wrinkles, and puffiness can make you look and feel tired, dragging down your confidence. But achieving radiant, youthful eyes is well within your reach! 

In this guide, we’ll unveil the secrets to brighter, smoother, and more revitalized eyes. We’ll explore the ‘good,’ ‘better,’ and ‘best’ approaches to caring for common eye concerns and recommend treatments that can deliver transformative results.

Building A Routine That Works For You

Skincare doesn’t come in one-size-fits-all, and we know that different skin concerns require different approaches. But your skincare choices are also affected by other factors, like your budget or how consistent you can be with the routine you set.

Achieving great results isn’t dependent on you doing it perfectly every time or diving headfirst into the most comprehensive routine. You will see results from a simple routine with high-quality products. However, your results will be more noticeable when you combine products and treatments that complement each other. The key is to find a routine you can stick to that suits your lifestyle and properly targets your concerns. 

We’ve broken this idea down into a few categories:

Good: Just Eye Cream

Investing in a quality eye cream that is designed to target your concerns is the most foundational way to see results. If you’re using your eye cream as directed and staying on top of your basic skincare routine, you will see results over time.

Better: Eye Cream + One Treatment

Complementing your eye cream use with a treatment designed to address your specific skin concerns will amplify the results you see even further. 

Best: Eye Cream + One Treatment + Botox® Every 3 Months

If you want the most results-oriented under-eye care routine, getting Botox® every three months to soften your crow’s feet and smile lines, while using a well-suited eye cream and getting an expert-recommended treatment is truly the best way to go.

But more on that later. First, let’s take a closer look at common skin concerns and the eye products we recommend to address them.

Products for Aging Skin Around the Eyes

This is for when you notice sagging, dark circles, and volume loss around your eyes. Here, we recommend products that directly target the concern and reinvigorate your skin with moisture. 

Zo Growth Factor Eye Serum

Encourages healthy skin and is best for creasing lines and hollowness. The cool metal applicator massages, soothes, and improves tired eyes.

Vivier Grenzcine Eye Growth Factor Cream

Zo Intense Eye Cream

DMK Eye Tone

DMK Fine Line

Products for Preventing Early Signs of Aging

This is for when your eye area starts to develop fine lines, irregular skin tone/texture, or puffiness. Taking action will help you fight off early aging indicators around your eyes. 

High-quality, medical-grade products are an investment that will keep your skin looking youthful. Here’s what we recommend:

Zo Intense Eye Cream

This very hydrating cream improves skin texture (crepe lines) and has optical diffusers to reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness.

Alumier Retinol Eye Gel

Zo Eye Brightening Cream

Alumier AluminEye

Products For Spoiling Yourself Now and Then

Indulging in a little weekly self-care is always recommended, and adding an extra step to your skincare routine can do wonders for your eyes. If you’re looking for advice on what to add to your weekly self-care routine, look no further. 

Alumier Eye Rescue Gel Pads

This refreshing weekly gel mask has moisturizing and brightening ingredients to shield against moisture loss.

Treatments and Services to Target Your Eyes

Investing in a quality eye cream is a good way to take care of your skin. But if you’re looking for a better or the best way, you’ll want to integrate treatments into your regular skincare. 

Here are the treatments we recommend at Essentials, as well as what types of concerns they’re best suited to address.

This hyaluronic acid filler is designed specifically for under-eye hollows. It will help add volume to the targeted area to create more balance under your eyes. It is not suited for those who have bags or fat pads under their eyes.

Examples of Good, Better, and Best Treatment Plans

Now that we’ve covered what products and treatments are best suited for eye care, let’s explore examples of what that might look like in practice.

Let’s take this image as our first example. If your eyes look similar to the ones pictured here, you might consider a plan that addresses signs of aging, like fine lines and fragile skin texture.

Good Approach: 

  • Using Zo Growth Factor Eye Serum combined with DMK Fine Line cream will address fine lines while retaining hydration around the eyes. 

Better Approach:

  • Using Zo Growth Factor Eye Serum combined with DMK Fine Line cream.

  • Getting Morpheus8 Under Eye Targeted treatments to firm up loose skin.

Best Approach:

  • Using Zo Growth Factor Eye Serum combined with DMK Fine Line cream.

  • Getting Morpheus8 Under Eye Targeted treatments.

  • Getting a Botox® treatment every three months.

Now, let’s consider a different example with different skin concerns. Here, we notice hollowness and dark circles under the eyes. The products and treatments we use to address these concerns will be different than the ones we recommended for our first example.

Good Approach: 

  • Using Zo Intense Eye Cream combined with Alumier AluminEye will brighten those dark circles and keep the skin moisturized.

Better Approach:

  • Using Zo Intense Eye Cream combined with Alumier AluminEye.

  • Getting Redensity 2 Under Eye Filler to add volume under the eyes to reduce the hollow appearance.

Best Approach:

  • Using Zo Intense Eye Cream combined with Alumier AluminEye.

  • Getting Redensity 2 Under Eye Filler.

  • Getting a Botox® treatment every three months.

So What’s Good, Better, or Best For You?

Everyone’s skin is so unique that what works for one person may not be the right approach for another. We stand behind our recommendations for eye products and treatments, but building out individual routines should always be done on a case-by-case basis.

Before you build out your good, better, or best routine, it’s important to talk to a registered aesthetic professional. We offer complimentary consultations so you can go over your specific concerns and goals. We’ll look at the whole picture of your skin’s health to recommend options that fit your lifestyle, budget, and aesthetic goals. 

If you want to invest in your skin’s health and incorporate eye care into your routine, we’d love to help you on this journey. Stop by the clinic, give us a call, or book a consultation with a knowledgeable member of our team.  🖤
