If you stay on top of the latest TikTok beauty hacks, you’ve probably seen the hype around FirmX, an eye cream from Peter Thomas Roth. Touted as “BOTOX® in a bottle” by countless TikTokkers, FirmX supposedly rids wrinkles in an instant, giving you a fresh, wide-eyed look nearly immediately.
If an eye cream can work wonders like this, why would anyone opt for eyelid surgery? Like most things that seem too good to be true, there is a catch with FirmX. See what it is and whether an eye cream or eyelid surgery could be the solution you’ve been searching for.
How Does Viral FirmX Eye Cream Work?
While FirmX eye cream can be great for a quick fix in a pinch, its effects are temporary.
The active ingredient in FirmX eye cream is silicate, which begins stitching together a structural lattice the moment it touches your skin. This structure pulls your skin taught, thus smoothing away lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin near your eyes.
However, the catch is that this effect is only temporary, and you’ll need to apply the eye cream any time you want to recreate its anti-aging illusion.
For More Than a Quick Fix, There’s Eyelid Surgery
If you are bothered by the appearance of pronounced wrinkles or sagging eyelids, you might consider a longer-lasting solution such as eyelid surgery, rather than applying an eye cream with only temporary results every day.
Eyelid surgery is a popular facial plastic surgery among both men and women, as it can achieve a more youthful, energized and brighter appearance for those with drooping skin in their eye area.
