Wrinkles in unusual area around eyes - How can I fix this area without surgery? (photos)

Deep wrinkles between my nose and just under my eyebrows, as well as the start of my eyelids. It improves about half way along the eye. Skin here is well hydrated, but has become wrinkly and very slightly saggy which makes me look constantly angry. I have spoken to many beauty therapists who all say they cannot touch this area with any beauty treatments incl PRP, skin needling, peels etc, as they are dangerous in these areas but I really don't want to have surgery. I am only 34.

Fractionated CO2 laser may be the answer

I would consider 1-3 treatments with fractionated CO2 laser (I like the Syneron Candela CO2RE in this area) - this may be the non-surgical option you are looking for.  I routinely follow this up with some radio frequency treatment (Endymed) for optimal tightening and improvement.  Seek an experienced practitioner.  Best wishes, Shobhan.

Wrinkles around the Eyes

Hi Melly400,


Based from your photos, it looks like the lines may be caused or is aggravated by "frowning" action which in your case is contributed partially by the inner part of the eye closing muscle (orbicularis muscle). A conservative dose of botox can help if this is the case. Fractional CO2 is also a very good option.
