There are many excellent options for treating lower lid wrinkles. I usually recommend non surgical treatments like Botox and skin resurfacing if the main problem is wrinkles. For more significant bulging of the lids surgery usually gives a longer lasting result.
Go slow and try the least invasive options first
Pictures would help. But, in general, wrinkles are usually caused by excess skin and/or hyperactive muscles. Skin peels, laser resurfacing, surgery, fillers and Botox/Dysport are the things to consider, alone or in combinations. Get 2-3 opinions.
This is a great question that we often are asked by our
patients. There are many options available to include surgical and non-surgical
methods. Your surgical option would be a lower blepharoplasty. Non-surgical
options can range from injections of Botox or Xeomin, micro-needling with medical grade skin products and/or laser treatment.

I am using the Protege Elite to tighten skin in the face. This procedure builds collagen and promotes growth of collagen.
In my office I have found the best option for treatment of under eye wrinkles and for building collagen has
been micro-needling combined with growth factor serums derived from human stem cells. We have been
getting excellent results using the Rejuva Skin Care system which combines
motorized micro-needling with RejuvaCells concentrated human growth factor
serum. For optimal results, our patients then continue to use the growth factor serum at home after their office
We would need to see photos to see if you are a candidate for surgery, laser or fillers.... or all of the above. The lower lids respond best to chemical or heating (laser) procedures. Fine lines can sometimes get better with Botox (neuromodulation) and retinol/tretinoin creams, but in general its the more procedural things that make the big differences. Most of my patients undergo fFaxel or Active FX fractional CO2 laser treatments and are thrilled. I am doing less and less lower eyelid surgery because fillers can be used to lift the cheek and tear trough areas so that fat pads and bony orbit are not seen -- which is a sign of aging. Id seek someone with cosmetic experience in treating the periorbital area. I would gladly see you in the office anytime for a free consultation. Best, Dr. Emer.
The primary goal of a lower a blepharoplasty is to remove puffiness created by the 3 fat pockets in the lower lids. The secondary goal lower eyelid surgery is to help with excess wrinkles. Fractionated laser resurfacing and help tighten excess wrinkles and a pinch technique of excess skin can be performed as well. When performing a pinch technique the incision is closed with Tissue glue. For many examples, please see the link below
Medical skin care, Botox injections and Fraxel laser resurfacing all treat eyelid wrinkles. Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery that treats bags under the eyes and loose skin. Which treatment is best depends on many factors including how bad your wrinkles are, your skin type, and your budget.
