I’ve been using a very good eye cream for several years now, but despite that I’m developing more lines around my eyes. When I apply foundation it gets into the little skin creases and makes the lines even more noticeable. What treatment do you recommend for this?

The skin around our eyes is the thinnest skin on our face, and lines often start appearing there even in our twenties. Eye cream is helpful in slowing down the lines, but even with the best eye cream the lines worsen over time. The most effective approach is a combination of a laser-type treatment along with a neurotoxin such as Botox or Dysport. The best procedures for you depends on how deep your lines are, your skin type, whether you have time for visible healing, and your lifestyle. Popular procedures include the ActiveFX laser, the Fotona Smooth Eye, Scarlet SRF, and Thermage, and many patients benefit from a combination of these.
