Under Eye Crinkles & Wrinkles Respond Well To Neuromodulators
While puffiness under the eyes resembling "jelly rolls", whichs result from hypertrophic, hyperactive muscles, is the main indication for the use of neuromodulators, such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin under the eyes, they have been used as well for treating fine crinkles and very fine lines that may appear there, as in this case. Frankly, I am a bit puzzled by the any association with the use of tretinoin under the eyes. Tretinoin applied daily is in fact used to treat fine wrinkling in this area, as well as all over the face and neck. And if the crinkling were the result of simple dryness that can occur with use of tretinoin, this would have cleared shortly after stopping it. Consultation with a board certified aesthetic physician with extensive experience in treating this area is a must.
