Under Eye Lines - Profractional vs Active Fx

October 31, 2008
What is the best treatment for undereye lines? I get botox for crows feet, but it doesn't help with lines under the eyes. I was told by a plastic surgeon that surgically it is a very difficult area to treat. I'm wondering what is the best treatment non-surgically. Thank you.


hi,
i agree.
these fine lines are tough to treat, and surgery is not the way.
i have had some success injecting botox close to the eyelash margin. i use a very small amount.
the only other treatment that i think works is laser. and the only laser technology that i have seen that makes a difference is fractional CO2. active / total fx is the device i have and it works quite well. fraxel re:pair is another option. these are intense lasers and there's a week downtime or so, but they're the only things that work.
cheers


Thank you very much for your reply. It has been recommended by a doctor (not a plastic surgeon) who performs my botox injections that the Profractional Laser may help. He said 4-5 treatments would be required over a period of several months, and the downtime would be about 3-4 days. Is this the same laser that you are referring to? Thanks again.


hi,
i don't own the profractional laser, and i'm not completely sure of how it performs against the fractional CO2 or the fractional erbium fraxel. it is a different kind of laser from these other 2. it is a YAG laser.
i have the lumenis fractional CO2 and its pretty invasive - a week of downtime, but 1 or 2 treatments. i don't know if the profractional is going to be intense enough to get the job done under the eyes.
i would do some more research about it.
hope that helps
