Wrinkles in Eye Area

Hi and thank you for your question! The skin around the eyes is very thin and prone to loss of elasticity. I would recommend a great eye cream. We have a wonderful product called Eyeconic, which has retinol in it, but is gentle and non-irritating. If you feel you are having hollowness and loss of volume, we might recommend a filler under the eyes. Best to set up a consultation with a qualified practice with experienced injectors. Best of luck, Dr. Grant Stevens

Volume loss

There are injectable products like Restylane and Juvederm that are used in the cheeks and under eyes to help replace loss of volume. It's difficult to determined which options are best for you without looking at your photos. I would recommend consulting with an experienced practioner to go over all your options. Best wishes
