Eyebags and Wrinkles
Thanks for your question. There are a few options available, both surgical and non surgical.
PRP treatment is proven to be extremely useful in addressing the concerns bought about by the ageing process which can lead to changes in skin texture, firmness, radiance, volume, flexibility and wrinkle formation. PRP can also address the dark areas under the eyes.
Wrinkles, creases and lines in these areas can be treated by filling the skin with a specially formulated gel ‘filler’. This is injected into or under the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin), pushing up and flattening the crease or wrinkle.
Lower eyelid surgery aims to address the bags under the eyes. Excess skin and removal or reshaping of the fat smooth’s the contour between the lower eyelid and the cheeks. Your cosmetic surgeon will assess if the procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic.
Make sure you research your options really well and find a qualified and experienced surgeon.

Facial Rejevenation: Information
Thank you for your story, questions and photos.
Different terms mean different things to different people.
Each persons needs, wants and desires are a little different and thus only after a actual
consultative appointment and physical exam can one determine what individual procedures (or combinations) will be needed and best for you to reach your goals.
Based on just the photos you would optimally benefit from a combination of:
1) non invasive (lasers, Radio Frequency, skin care/aesthesticians and medications)
2) minimally invasive (fillers, collagen stimulatents, internal skin shrinkage (Themi Lift)
3) short hidden incisional skin contouring (face/neck lift, brow lift, blephroplasty, fat injections, etc).
I would contact a Plastic Surgeon in your area that not only performs surgery (if needed) but in addition has collection of up to date non surgical technology.
When we combine non surgical and short hidden incisional techniques together we refer to this concept as "Synergy".... each technique magnifying on each other to obtain results you could not achieve with just surgery or lasers alone.
Please make several consultative appointments with experienced Plastic Surgeons who are Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (denoting by membership as having met additional criteria and a focus on Cosmetic Plastic Surgery).
