What is the best treatment for fine lines and crepey skin under the eyes? Botox, Restylane? Is there a surgery to take care of this?

Lax skin lower eyelids

There are three basic treatment options: 

1) Medical grade skin care products,

2) Laser tightening, and

3) surgery (lower lid blepharoplasty).  

Your best bet is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Treat Crepe under eyelid skin.

There is no easy fix for delicate crepe lower eyelid skin. I've found BOTOX does not give reliable results, and the skin is too thin to use a filler.

Options include a lower eyelid resurfacing procedure (I do not perform this). Or you could get a lower eyelid "skin-pinch" blepharoplasty.

I hope this was helpful, and best regards.
