Hi ‘Wrinkles’, thank you for the question.<br><br>The best approach to treating any area that concerns you, would be to have an examination performed by a medical aesthetic practitioner, cosmetic dermatologist, or plastic surgeon. This will allow for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. <br><br>I will list a number of treatment options ranging from topical treatments to more invasive:<br>A topical eye cream that contains alphahydroxy acids (AHA), polyhydroxy acids (PHA), Pro-Vitamin A, and Vitamin K.<br>A good SPF (that contains zinc and or titanium) applied several times daily.<br>Monthly glycolic acid peels.<br>Prevage MD.<br>Botox: one of the best options in combination with the above topical regime (if this is financially viable).<br>Laser: the new Matrix IR Non-Ablative Diode Laser technology from Syneron (EMax), offers a true alternative in treating wrinkles in any area. The treatment is painless, no downtime at all, and only the wrinkles need to be treated (not the whole face) as there is no skin tone/colour change.<br><br>Regarding the stretch marks my suggestion is to treat them with laser and a topical regime that contains vitamin A and vitamin K. you have several choices with laser:<br>Syneron Matrix IR Non-Ablative Diode Laser (my personal preference).<br>Fraxel.<br>Pulse Dye Laser with Radiofrequency.<br>
