What is the best treatment for fine lines and crepey skin under the eyes? Botox, Restylane? Is there a surgery to take care of this?

There are three basic treatment options: 

1) Medical grade skin care products,

2) Laser tightening, and

3) surgery (lower lid blepharoplasty).  

Your best bet is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

There is no easy fix for delicate crepe lower eyelid skin. I've found BOTOX does not give reliable results, and the skin is too thin to use a filler.

Options include a lower eyelid resurfacing procedure (I do not perform this). Or you could get a lower eyelid "skin-pinch" blepharoplasty.

I hope this was helpful, and best regards.
