Is surgery the only option I really have to change the wrinkles under my eyes? (Photo)

Wrinkles under Eyes
The eyelid skin is the thinnest on the body and therefore ages first. Chemical peels, lasering, and collagen induction treatment with PRP can all help to soften the wrinkles. Fillers will not help the wrinkles, but will soften the hollowness that is under the eye.
Under eye wrinkles
These can be improved with dermal fillers. In addition, RF, like Infini can help. There is vilume loss, so that needs to be replaced before considering surgery.
Under Eye Rejuvenation with fillers, lasers, microneedling/prp, Botox
Fillers, lasers, and microneedling/PRP can improve under eye wrinkles. My patients try to get non surgical treatments to avoid surgery. We use PRP and stem cells there often. Botox/Dysport/Xeomin really help in combination. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Wrinkles under the eyes
Frequently for wrinkling under the eyes, surgery is not a great option and Botox, as you have found, helps very little for the fine wrinkling that some people have at rest. Two options are a tightening procedure, such as Thermage, which can be helpful but is relatively expensive and difficult to predict how effective. Laser resurfacing can be very effective, but it does have significant recovery time. In terms of resurfacing, I have not found fractional resurfacing (eg. Fraxel) to be as effective as full resurfacing. Good luck.
