There are many non surgical techniques available to consider in this situation, but if I interpret your question correctly, and you are looking for no downtime at all, I would not consider fractionated co2 nor even non-ablative fractional devices such as erbium glass lasers, but a radiofrequency device called the Exilis Elite. The results can be really good without the downtime of other techniques. You require no anaesthesia and it feels like a hot stone massage! It can therefore be quite enjoyable! You may need 2-3 treatments, but the results can be impressive and with no downtime at all!
Topically, I always recommend a good moisturiser, an antioxidant and a sunblock in the day, and an eye retinol such as Retinol Eye TR from Medik8 and moisturiser at night. These are adjuncts to the above treatment recommendation. There are many other products as well, but these are examples of evidence-based ones for helping sun ageing.
Good luck with your research.

There are a few good non-invasive treatments that we use to tighten crepe, lax skin under the eyes which help with puffiness. We use Ultherapy and fractionated CO2 laser, either as stand alone treatments or in combination. Make sure to choose your treating physician most carefully. Good luck and be well.
