Botox and possibly laser resurfacing is more effective than derma roller for wrinkles around the eyes

Please have your brother consult a board certified plastic surgeon for an opinion.

The most effective methods for improving wrinkles around the eyes is Botox and if the wrinkles are severe possibly laser resurfacing.  The derma roller simply cannot achieve  similar results.  Please read more in the following link:

Thank you for asking about skin rejuvenation for your brother. 

  1. Botox, skin repair creams based on tretinoin, fractional lasers, deeper lasers and medium or deepn peels all help, depending on the problem. 
  2. A dermaroller - the device recommended to your brother - is less predictable and results may be disappointing. .Hope this helps. Best wishes.

Laser better then derma roller

The use of a derma roller is not as accurate as SmartSkin Dot Therapy.  It's normal to start noticing the early signs of aging in your thirties and forties.   The best treatment for texture, pores and fine lines is the microablative fractionated CO2 laser like SmartSkin. This laser is very effective for wrinkles, acne scars, and improving skin texture.  You seem to have a fair skin complexion.  This laser treatment is very precise and predictable.  You will have two days of swelling, two days of peeling and two days of redness.  To maintain your result I would consider using SkinMedica TNS essential serum with growth factors.

Dose DermaRoller work for fine lines aroung the eyes?

Minimally at best.  There are many better ways to treat fine lines around the eyes.  It is usually a combination of Botox, and eye cream which has an active Retinol in it,  using a Clarisonic Opal System to increase penetration of active eye creams and  ultimately erbium resurfacing both as a single treatment or in conjunction with Profractional therapy.  It all will help in making those lines disappear.

Reducing Wrinkles around Eyes

You are describing a dermaroller. In my experience because it just rolls across the skin, it does very little to improve anything. It's much easier and more effective to have Botox injected to the crow's feet, or undergo a Fractional laser treatment which will do a lot more than a dermaroller.
