Q&A: What can I do about lines on my face and below my eyes?

Hi Colleen,
 
Thank you for your question. Lines that become increasingly present in the under eye area are caused by the following factors:
1) loss of elasticity of the skin and resulting skin laxity
2) loss of volume underneath the skin
3) repeated muscle contraction under the skin in the area
 
Therefore, the best remedy is a balanced treatment of all causes (just like anything else in medicine).
1) skin excess may removed by eyelift or tightened with laser or other minimally invasive treatment
2) the volume can be replaced with fat, synthetic fillers (such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Voluma etc)
3) the muscles can be controlled with neurotoxin (such as Botox, Dysport, etc)
 
Thanks again and please let me know if I may be of further help.
