Under eye wrinkles
Thank you for your question! Lines in the forehead and around the eyes are some of the most common concerns in young individuals, so your question is a good one. Unfortunately, there are no creams which will stop this type of wrinkling. Generally speaking, the lines in the upper face in young people are most commonly caused by muscular contraction. The muscles in your face are pulling at the skin over and over and over again, hundreds of times a day, and over the course of time, they break down this collagen in the skin, leading to etched-in lines of expression. Since that cause is muscular, the solution has to be muscle relaxation. This is what Botox does. Topical products can help the skin becomes stronger, and thicker, but since they do not affect the muscles in the same way that Botox does, they will not take the lines away 100%. If you feel you're not ready for Botox, your best option will be a retinol or a Retin-A - however, do not expect to see anything more than modest improvement.
