Obviously nobody knows. Unless you have identical twins and you can treat one and not the other, you don't know for sure. But there are a few things that we know do make sense. One of them is the use of botulinum toxins. So if you can relax the muscles so that they're not squeezing as much, at least from a standpoint of cross fit lines, you can help keep the lines at bay if you will. When it comes to skin quality, taking good care of your skin, both with topical products and then periodically doing something a little bit aggressive that will stimulate some deeper collagen changes such as perhaps resurfacing treatment, maybe a non-invasive skin tightening treatment, depending on the individual, can help maintain the skin quality. When it comes to the puffiness of the lower lids, which is a factor that's related to the fat inside the lids, there's not really a lot that you can do to prevent that. You just need to be aware that it's going to happen.

And when it does, I think it's advantageous to treat it sooner rather than later. I think now is a great time to form a relationship with someone who you trust. Ultimately, you need someone, if you're going to be thinking about your eyes, who understands technology-based treatments such as laser and non-invasive skin tightening, injectables such as fillers and toxins, and understands surgery. And what you want is someone with whom you can ultimately evolve into a relationship where you say, "Here I am. Do I need anything?" And if the answer is, "No, you don't," and say, "You look great. I'll see you in six months or a year," whatever it may be. On the other hand, if it's time for something, they'll tell you that and you have that internal comfort that, "I know this is something that I need to be doing." Anywhere from your 20s to your 30s is the right time to build a relationship with someone who understands eyelid rejuvenation.
