At 37, would an eyelid Thermage be the best for my eye area?

HI Dr. I- I am 37 and really considering thermage for the eyes. I would like to tighten the area. I currently do Botox for the crows feet and bunny lines. They really make a nice difference but I am not completly satisfied. I think I am losing the volume under my eyes and around my mouth. I have high cheek bones which helps but I really notice the change :( I follow your skincare regimine and I have good skin overall but it\'s become significantly thinner and combined with my other issues I am wondering what you would recommend? Thank in advanced for your time.

At 37, it depends on what’s bothering you the most.  Eyelid Thermage tends to be best if there is a just little “hooding” or slightly lax skin.  Eyelid Fraxel tends to be better if the problem is more crepiness.  Don’t forget to protect that delicate skin with sunglasses and put your sunscreen on the crow’s feet!  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
