As we age, there is a decrease in the amount of production of collagen and elastin by our skin, which is an unavoidable result of aging. This decrease, along with sun exposure and genetics, is one of the main causes of under-eye wrinkles that can make us look tired or older than we actually are.
However, all hope is not lost! There are reliable, safe, and effective ways today to improve the appearance of sagging or wrinkled skin under the eyes.
Much like chemical peels, laser resurfacing is commonly used for more minor under-eye wrinkles on the top layer of the skin. The laser beam breaks down the epidermis of the top layer of skin and stimulates new collagen to grow in the next layer.
