Best treatment for lines under eyes and around mouth/chin area?

I had an aggressive C02 laser about 10 years ago where they put me under anesthesia, wore bandages etc. I need a re-touch. There are a few reputable Dr.'s here and one does a deep Cortex laser and the other does Exelo. Which one is best for deeper lines around eyes/mouth and chin? I am not sure I want a 2 week downtown, 1 -+ week is OK. What other lasers or treatments are recommended? I've done Botox, etc. I'm 51, light/fair skin/hair. Thank you!

Treatments depends on your desired outcomes.

Agree with everyone's answers, for some patients who would like to avoid laser, I like INFINI RF with PRP, but you will require several sessions. In some cases fractional lasers can help, but once again several sessions. In other cases I use an erbium laser, often combined with low density fractional CO2 laser. The video explains one of the many ways to remove wrinkles. All the best, Dr Davin Lim, Brisbane. Australia.

CO2 laser has downtime, Infini is less

I have switched over to the Infini for treating lines and wrinkles. There is less downtime, less wound care, and less risk. Infini goes deeper than the CO2 with it's energy, up to 3.5mm whereas the CO2 goes to about 1.5-1.7mm. It requires about 3 treatments.

Facial Aging and Lasers like Fraxel/Clear + Brilliant, RF like VIVA, Peels, Fillers, Skin Care, Face Lift, Fat Injections

Fraxel and laser resurfacing or deep peels do best for fine lines.  Fillers and botox can be used.  Alternatively microneedling/RF like intensif do well.  Please see an expert for an evaluation.  Best, Dr. Emer.
