I have bags and lines under my eyes- what really works to remove or help them?


I am 41 and have always had great skin. Unfortunately I spent this last year crying alot and now have this yukky kinda baggy skin under my eyes & some lines. I have since quit crying but cannot find anything to help with the under eye issues. I have no other wrinkles or lines anywhere. I have tried many things on the market and it just seems to make things worse. Help!

lower lid blepharoplasty will work great for you. If it was only fine wrinkles a laser resurfacing will be recommended.
