What is the best treatment for under eye wrinkles?

Q:

I have under eye wrinkles and (a little crow's feet). I was wondering if you could offer a few solutions (varying by price and how long it will last) to get rid of these wrinkles.

A:

An examination is the best way to give you the best answer for your specific findings.  Options consist of Botox, fillers, peels, lasers, surgery.  Costs vary based on your location. I would recommend you see an aesthetic surgeon who performs this regularly for a consultation and go from there.

A:

There is no single best answer because each person is different. Botox helps with crows' feet and lasts about 3 months. Other options include laser or chemical peels, which may be better for fine lines and wrinkles. Surgery is usually considered when there is more than just skin laxity, so a consultation is needed in order to sort all this out.

A:

There are many treatments for under eye wrinkles ranging from light chemical peels to Botox, to blepharoplasty or ablative laser treatment. The only way to know what is best for you is to have a consultation with a plastic surgeon to see what is recommended for you. 

A:

It will depend on how deep or marked they are. At this ages we can try a resurfacing treatment or a chemical peel. Sometimes we can use a filler, a PRP or Vampire facelift, and sometimes also Botox or Dysport work properly. You must visit a ASAPS Member Plastic surgeon to see what works better in your case.

A:

Crow's feet are best treated with Botox injections.  However wrinkles beneath the eyelashes involving the entire width of the lower eyelid cannot be treated with Botox.

A blepharoplasty can remove eye bags and loose skin but eyelid wrinkles that are caused by contraction of the eyelid muscles will persist even after blepharoplasty.

In my experience Laser Resurfacing can remove surface or superficial wrinkles from the lower eyelid but caution must be used when using laser on the lower eyelids.

It is crucial that your lower eyelid have adequate support and that the eyelid snaps back smartly when the eyelid was pulled down and released.  The healing after laser resurfacing tends to pull the eyelid down so good support is essential.

It is also very important that protective Shields be placed on the eye during laser treatments.  You need to consult a plastic surgeon who is expert at oculoplastic and laser techniques.
