If the skin around your eyes is a little lax and slightly crepey, you may want to forgo surgery and try a laser resurfacing treatment instead. Not only does laser resurfacing retexturize the skin, it also causes new collagen to be produced, which can make the skin appear tighter.
Laser resurfacing smooths wrinkles and crepiness of the lids, and it can also diminish dark pigment under the eyes. Both ablative and nonablative lasers can improve the look of loose skin.
Keep in mind, an ablative laser can cause you to be out of commission for up to six weeks, though only one treatment is needed. On the other hand, a nonablative laser has a recovery period of just a few days, but at least four sessions are required. Post-procedure, you can expect the area around your eyes to look red and swollen. Scarring is rare.
