Every patient reacts differently and you need to discuss the options with your surgeon. However, I frequently perform chemical peels on the lower eyelids to tighten the skin. Most commonly it is a procedure performed in combination with a transconjunctival lower eyelid blepharoplasty.
Chemical peels are an excellent treatment to improve wrinkled eyelid skin. There are several different types of peels, so someone needs to help patients decide what is best in their case. Sometimes, a high quality medical grade skin exfoliation and hydration program is all that is needed. But, no one can make a recommendation without an examination. In my opinion, it is important to have an evaluation by an experienced doctor who understands the entire gamut of skin care and peels....
Skin resurfacing is certainly one of the solutions to crepey lower eyelid skin. This can be accomplished through chemical peels or laser peels. The peel needs to be moderate in depth and that would include Jessners and TCA or Phenol. Laser resurfacing can be performed with CO2 laser or Erbium and even Fractionated laser can be of benefit. Good skin care products will help to maintain the result and possibly Botox.
88% Phenol Peels should be an alternative considered by every surgeon in rejuvenation of the lower eyelids. We often combine this procedure with the transconjunctival blepharoplasty.
