Q:

I am a 25 year old woman with a medium olive complexion of Latino and Caucasian descent. The area under and around my eyes is prematurely lined due to previous sun exposure and smoking. My under eye area is also hyperpigmented. What are the possible procedures that might improve this?

A:

As far as the premature wrinkles, as young as you are, I would consider microdermabrasion and the use of moisturizing creams. If that does not solve the problem, then you may try Botox injections, however Botox lasts only 3-4, maximum 5 months. For the dark circles under the eyes, I know of nothing truly effective, but you may camouflage them with makeup.
