Is surgery really the next step on getting rid of wrinkles?

User Profile
I have 4-5 DEEP fine line wrinkles under each bottom eye lid. I have used Anti-wrinkle deep wrinkle filler and after that didn't work- a lifting & firming eye cream. Nothing has worked. Is surgery really the next step on getting rid of these pesky wrinkles or is there more of an inexpensive way to reduce these pesky lines?? I have read that consuming vitamin a, c, d, and E supplements and cutting the capsules and rubbing them on the wrinkles could help(does it?) What do you suggest? I also heard going on an extreme healthy diet will help. Only in my early 30's- what can I do?

Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

The most important treatment of skin wrinkling is avoiding the sun and using sunscreens with minimum spf of 30 atleast half an hour before going out in the sun. Other treatment methods include prescription acid creams or peels, stronger retinoids such as Retin A, Botox( botulinum toxin) ,non invasive or carbon dioxide laser and a surgical facelift.

It is true that Vitamin E creams help but before taking these supplements get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
