Eye wrinkles are most generally considered to be the little lines and folds under the lower eyelid. These occur from a loss of skin elasticity and the excess skin resulting from the thinning of sub-fat tissue. Additionally, this area is also stressed through mimic and angular movements. Sometimes "eye wrinkles" are considered the laugh lines or crow’s feet that appear at the sides of your eyes.
Eye wrinkles do not only come from laughing.

After thoroughly understanding the cause, we can treat the symptom. The amount of mimicry under the eyes can be reduced with botulinum toxin. However, a botulinum toxin treatment can only be performed if the muscles under the eyes have sufficient strength, otherwise there is a risk of creating watery eyes.
Angular movements can be reduced with botulinum toxin often smoothing out the skin somewhat.
The lost fat volume of this thinning skin can often be replaced with a thin, stable hyaluronic acid-based filler. Depending on the initial situation the results can vary. In general, the first treatment is usually significantly more successful than follow-up treatments. Concerning very extreme eye wrinkles, meaning excess skin along the lower eyelid, only an operative tightening or lifting of the lower eyelid can reduce these eye wrinkles.
Moisturizing creams and anti-wrinkle creams, with or without the marketing ingredient hyaluronic acid, smoothen wrinkles by swelling the top layer of skin. Even the household remedy of using wet teabags on your eyes is based on swelling the skin. This effect is somewhat impressive at first, but only lasts a few minutes or hours. Skin care is of course wise, but the frequent use of anti-wrinkle creams or “eye creams” generally have the opposite effect.
Injections performed in this area can result in extensive bruising. The development of hematoma is dependent upon the practitioner’s treatment skills and the coagulation parameters of the patient. The danger of hematoma from a botulinum toxin treatment is generally much lower than that of with hyaluronic acid-based filler because the needle can injure more blood vessels on its parallel path leaving the skin’s surface. Unevenness and swelling can appear after a hyaluronic acid-based filler treatment, especially on the delicate under-eye area. Here you will find details to side-effects of botulin toxin and hyaluronic acid-based filler.
The cost of an eye wrinkle treatment mainly depends on the method and the amount of material used. Eye wrinkles, depending on their severity and accepted side-effects, can be either treated with botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid-based filler or both.
