Thermage or Fraxel for Under Eye Hollows?

I'm 54 with few wrinkles, but good skin tone and texture. However, I also have major sunken/hollows under eyes with minimal fat/puffiness and discoloration. I'm not fond of fillers. Will Thermage or Fraxel work?

Fraxel Repair for Under Eye Area


We have both the Thermage and the Fraxel Repair and restore. The Fraxel repair works the best under the eyes. I wouldn't even consider the Thermage for this issue. Please view the photos I have posted on Real Self and you will see some great examples of the improvements that can be made. Hollowing does respond very well to fillers and usually lasts over 1 year. Take care, Dr. Groff
