I'm just curious whether there is any effective treatment that will actually do away with the wrinkles on the upper and lower eyelids. I know there non-surgical treatments for facial wrinkles--and some of them do work--but is there anything other than surgery that will erase eyelid wrinkles?

If you want wrinkles removed, then yes, surgery is the only way to do that. There is no magical wrinkle cream that will remove them, I don't care what the ads say. Don't waste your money.

You must be new to wrinkles. They bother you most in the beginning.

I've come to embrace my wrinkles. They're mine, part of the life journey that is written on my face. When I smile my eyes crinkle up at the edges, and that comes from decades of smiles made by these eyes.

Wrinkles are ok. They are character, they lend an air of authority and maturity.

See these wrinkles? Yeah, so don't give me your cockamamie story, these wrinkly eyes have seen plenty, and to borrow from Judge Judy "Don't p*ss on my leg and tell me it's raining." Age has taught me a lot.

Which is not to say that one should forgo personal beauty maintenance in later years. Ongoing personal maintenance is necessary, surgery is not. Wrinkles happen. Just try to keep everything looking as upscale as possible without clownish intervention.

You are who you are.

No, I am not new to wrinkles. I am 74 and have had my share of wrinkles for decades. I just thought I would ask to see if something new had come onto the market and I might have missed finding out about it.

Someone who is GOOD with putting in botox and does not over do it. I think that looks really nice and not alien. Day one may look a little alien. LOL...But its less recovery time than an eye job. It juts softens everything. There are also injectable fillers. But there seems to be more complication stories going with that than to botox.

Have you tried any of those new "lifting" foundations? I have not but the look interesting. Chanel has one and I think Rimmel? I like the chanel shades though.

Ok, don't laugh too hard but I've heard makeup artists have been using Preparation H as a temporary fix for ages. I'm not sure it works but I've been thinking about trying it.

I had forgotten about the Preparation H use for wrinkles but remember this from years past. Did a little research and found out that the FDA had a hand in forcing the manufacturer to reformulate the product WITHOUT the skin tightening ingredient. However, the original formula Prep H is still available online from Canadian suppliers. So if any CD members want to give this a try, you will have to order from Canada to get the original formula.

Why would they make them take it out? I think that is what you would want to happen downstairs when you use it too eh?

I just remembered too...If you want to google around...They have home laser stuff to tighten skin now and of course doc versions. Its new and little $$$$. But I thought you may like to read about it anyway.

I forget if the home units are available now or not. I think I saw it on fox news...or was it cnn?

The FDA, the AMA and the pharmaceutical industry are in bed with each other. My guess is that the use of Preparation H, being cheap and effective, the cosmetic surgery docs didn't want anything like that so readily available to the public. It cuts into their profits.

Same thing happened with ordering contact lenses online. You have to have a new prescription from an eye doc every year now. A few years ago you could order them without a prescription but not any more.

Thanks for the additional info. pitt.

Botox won't work on those crepey upper lids...it will be effective for "laugh" lines and crows feet, but not the upper lid....that's just excess skin that has to be surgically removed.
