Hi Accent in Scotland,

Hope that you are enjoying the results of your cataract surgery, must be as you are now concerned about the skin laxity that you can see around your eyes.

I would not recommend Accent XL on the eye lid area. If you wish to treat the skin laxity in the area, find an experienced and skilled physician who performs fractionated CO2 laser treatments such as Deep FX, Mixto, or Fraxel re:pair.

Good luck and be well.
