Crepey Skin & Lines under the Eyes

As your body gets older, your skin starts to reveal signs of aging. Eye skin is very thin, so wrinkles, fine lines, and crepiness

are most noticeable. Both skin type and genetics can determine whether a person gets crepey skin and it is more common

in older people, not usually appearing until people are at least in their 40’s. However, the most common cause of crepey

skin is from ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The American Association of Dermatology says that exposure to UV radiation is the most

preventable cause of early skin damage. Overtime, the UV radiation will break down the elastin fibers in the skin, which allow the

skin to stretch and return to its normal position. When skin turns crepey, eyelids look loose and saggy. Both Botox and the fraxel

laser will give a nice cosmetic result. Also, fillers may need to be injected under the tear trough area as well.
